Frugal Friday....the May 18th Edition

Let's see what frugal wins we had this past week at Chez Sluggy......

*  I sold some more stuff-4 packs of diapers...........

$22 richer.

* I get emails from a savings site called "My Perks" for local deals.

They had 50% certificates, $15 for $30 worth of hoagies at Primo Hoagies.  This is a place we go to anyway and with hot weather approaching I am all about sandwiches for dinner and not running an oven to make meals.  I bought 2 certs and have 3+ months to use them.

*  I got a bunch of stuff at Rite-Aid which I already did the run down on.........

Basically got paid $2.17 in BC/cash to take this all home.

*  The Daughter made dinner for me on Mother's Day, steaks and corn on the grill and garlicy green beans. It was yummy AND she paid for the food too!  A double win in my book. lolz

*  This came in the mail this past week........

A coupon for 7 tins of free dog food.  Chester will appreciate this!

*  I received back $4.50 in various cash rebates on Ibotta.

*  And the BIG ONE.........

We sold the house down in Louisiana!!!

Goodbye state taxes, goodbye insurance, goodbye property taxes, goodbye utilities, goodbye maintenance and repairs, goodbye lawn care!

Not much to crow about this past week but they were definitely BIG wins! 8-))))))))))))

So what good things/frugal wins did y'all have this past week?
Tell us all about 'em.



  1. Selling a house is a huge win! Congrats!!

  2. Congrats on the sale of the Louisiana house. I am happy for you, We owned two homes that were almost 3000 miles apart and it was a relief when we moved and sold our New York home. At the time, we never in a million years thought we would come back. You know what they say about the best laid plans. I am e-mailing you today. I have a question for you.

  3. Congrats on the house sale. I'm sure that is a huge relief.

  4. Due to extra expenses this month, like car license, I have $200 left and 13 days left in the month! That should be challenging lol! (That's in my budget before I have to resort to using savings). It can be done! I'm still on April's gas $$ as I'm now biking most places so have a little leeway there if I need it. My daughter's turn to buy groceries so that'll help too. We'll be fine.... :)

  5. I am so happy for you over the house, I am sure this was a bur in your side and a guilty worry to your daughter.

  6. Hi Sluggy, this is Chris. I went to Kroger this morning, but didn't get much, since we are still pretty stocked. Mostly produce and milk, that kind of stuff. Kroger is having another of their mega sales this week, but I only got 4 items with my coupons: some cheap shave gel, free toothpaste, and 1 bag of shredded cheese. I saved 33% this week.

  7. Yay!!!! on the sale of the house!

  8. Do you know where you got the dog food coupon from? did you sign up for it? Great job.

    1. No I don't believe I did MCOIA. It was mailed to Hubs actually and he never signs up for stuff. lolz

  9. The house is a huge win. I'm happy for you-it looks like a cute house. Chester was a winner as well.

  10. Congratulations on the house sale!

  11. Yeah for the house sale!! What a huge relief for you. What were my wins... no spending this week outside of food and gas.

  12. So glad you sold the house. Bye Louisiana!
