Frugal Friday......the March 16th Edition

Let's see what frugal wins we had last week.........


Last Friday I picked up a Friday Freebie at Weis-a roll of paper towels. 
I also got 2 more cans of crushed tomatoes for free using doubled coupons and the sale price. 
The Ocean-Spray organic juice was also free-on sale for $2 at Weis and I had a $2/1 IPQ(I printed off more of those Ocean-Spray Qs and went back for more free bottles.). 
The OJ was almost free-on sale for $2 and I had an electronic Q attached to my Weis card for $1.59 off this type of OJ so it cost me .41¢ only.
The Coleman uncured hot dogs were reg. price of $3.50 a pack and I had $1.50/1 IPQs plus they also had peelieQs on the packs for $1.25 off.  The cashier put through both the IPQs and the peelie Qs on each pack so they ended up costing me .75¢ per package. 
So some frees and some almost frees.  ;-)

*  After an arduous day grocery shopping on Wednesday which stretched out to 2 pm I stopped next door at Mickey D's for a Shamrock shake and a small burger.  I found an old book of $1 McDonald's gift certificates in my stash of gift cards pouch that morning so I used that to pay and only had .29 OOP to cover. 
Due to unforeseen circumstances(see the next bullet point)I'll have to blog about any more frugal wins on that Wednesday trip next week.

*  And this is as far as I got yesterday before the "Ides of March" befell me.  I went flying, slipping on ice(invisible ice where Hubs had shoveled over the grass, what was left melted and frozen overnight and was not visible above the grass)while taking Chester outside yesterday morning.  I can attest that the ground here is still VERY frozen. ouch
Anyway, I sort of rolled to my side so dirtied up my left knee, left a wonderful bloody scrape on my left elbow.........

and jolted my shoulder, which did something to my left collar bone which has made my left arm mostly inoperable.  You don't realize how many muscles have to work together when you do anything with your left arm until you hurt something. sigh.

So yesterday after the incident I spent most of the rest of the day/evening in the recliner, icing my collar bone and taking pain killers(leftovers from Hubs broken leg adventure).
Thankfully I was able to find a position that allowed me to sleep without pain(w/a pain killer too)last night.
Nothing is bruised or broken thankfully and I am a little better today but have to type with one hand still.
So that's as far as Frugal Friday will go this week.

It's always something in life, right?

I hope you had a better "Eyes of March". ;-)

And keep on staying frugal out there!



  1. So, when are you moving to the South, way South where we never slip on ice of frozen snow? I have injuries that left me without broken bones, but the damage caused was worse than a break. I am glad you had pain pills strong enough to help. At least you did not hit your head. I bet your fall scared Chester. He probably thought you were attacking him. Did he come lick your face to make you feel better? I hope you feel better soon.

  2. Hope you are feeling better soon! That sounded like quite a fall, thankfully you did not break anything.

  3. Well that sucks! Glad you are ok though and have a furry little friend to snuggle with

  4. OUCH! Glad it wasn't more serious.

  5. Oh no! You and I might make a right pair, though you drew blood, I just laid in the street like a wlarus praying a care didn't run me over before my wind came back and help arrived. Great deals as always. Nothing to compare.

  6. Oh my dear woman! I'm so sorry you took a tumble! I hope you're feeling a little better by now. OUCH!

  7. Yikes - so glad you are just bruised and not broken!!! I would do something like that and then dh would say "oh, be careful".....thank you SO much, why didn't I think of that?? lol

  8. Oh no, Sluggy. I hope you are not too sore today. :(

  9. I'm sorry to hear about your fall, but glad you weren't seriously injured. Hope you feel better soon.

    Awesome deals at Weiss!

  10. Ouch! I hope you get better soon!!!

  11. I don’t bounce well, either.
    We’re off to Aldi’s, today. The sun is shining and we are restless. (It’s still going to take all day to get to 40*) This shop will be our ‘deal’ for the week.
    Hope the day ends better for you.

  12. It is always something. I am so sorry that you feel and hurt yourself. Hopefully you didn't break that collarbone.

    You got some great deals before that happened. I envy your hot dog deal.
