Frugal Friday......The July 27th Edition

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

* The only grocery shopping so far this week has been a trip to Maine Source last Friday.  I  got some good produce deals-cabbage and bananas .49¢ lb., yellow squash and tomatoes for .99¢ lb., asparagus $1.69 lb. and sweet corn for .33¢ an ear.  I also picked up a 25 lb. bag of onions for $14.99, a 6.73 lb. bag of ground chuck at $2.39 lb. and 2 packs of roast beef deli meat at $7.99 lb.
The store had a $5 off wys $50 coupon so along with the good prices I saved an additional $5 too.

*  I found money!

1¢ in a Rite-Aid parking lot on Saturday.

*  And speaking of Rite-Aid after we hit a brew pub to celebrate Eldest son's birthday I hit two different Rite-Aid on the way home and picked up all this free candy......

8 bags of Jolly Ranges and Twizzlers varieties that double dipped with a Buy2/Get $1 BC weekly Deal and a Buy2/Get $2BC monthly Deal.  So every 4 bags on sale for 2/$3 cost me $6 in BC and gave me back $6 in BC.
I did 4 bags on each of two cards and rolled $6 of BC on each of those cards.
If the kids don't want this, look for it to come to a Giveaway Box near you.  ;-))

*  I baked Eldest son a birthday cake............

Here he is pretending to blow out his candles so I could take a photo. lolz
I could have bought a cake from the local bakery or the Weis Markets bakery department.  I had a cake mix and frosting in the stockpile and made his favorite type of cake(German Chocolate)so no additional $$ spent.

*  Also on Friday I hit the Bread Outlet since we were down to our last loaf of bread;
3 packs of hamburger rolls(for bbq and burgers), 3 loaves of bread and 2 boxes of chocolate donuts later I spend down my WAM by $10 instead of putting it on the c/c which is usually how I pay for groceries(to keep track-c/c charges are paid off monthly).

*  I received a Target mailer/ad with this coupon on it..........

It was a Back To School ad but this coupon can be used on anything in the store, not just typically BTS items.
I can send for a $50 Target gift card using c/c points for free and pair it with this Q making it an even better deal.

*  More garden goodies got picked on Thursday.......

75.8 ounces more of zuke and Summer squash.
There will be more zuke and squash on next week's menu I think.  ;-)

What frugal wins did you have this week?

Tell us all about it.



  1. OK~so I needed to thank you for always reminding me that Fridays are Krogers Friday freebie AND another thank you for reminding me that the big city has a Pepperidge Farm Outlet store! Got one package each hamburger and hot dog buns for a total of $1.51!!! B1G1
    Checked Krogers and Target for price.........$2.99/each!
    Store carried pretty much their whole product line however I used great restraint to not buy one of everything!

  2. Happy Birthday to your boy!!!!
    As for being frugal... I got nothing. except don't spend anything.

  3. I save and hubs seems to spend this week, which is starting to annoy me.

  4. This week my frugal wins included:
    - eating all meals at home (even when I didn't feel like it
    - took snacks, drinks, and lunch with me when I was out and about
    - washed and re-used plastic bags
    - hung most wash loads instead of running the dryer
    _ kept a.c. high and kept the drapes drawn to keep the house cool
    - was able to make hubby lunch 2 times (Not so easy to do as he is a long haul trucker.)
    - Found herbal teas, cereal, bread, and protein bars in the "WooHoo" section of the grocery store.
    - Bought tomatoes at a gray price at the farmer's mkt so I made n canned my own spaghetti sauce. Much better for me as it has almost no sodium.
    Thanks for your blog, Sluggy, it is such an encouraging community.

  5. By taking in one school supply, I got a loaf of bread from the bread store. I came out $0.75 to the good.

  6. I'm coming over for some cake. The veggies look great. You had another great week. My freebies are here:

  7. You actually make it seem so easy with your presentation but I find this matter to be really something which I think I would never understand.
    It seems too complex and very broad for me. I'm looking forward for your next post,
    I will try to get the hang of it!

  8. My husband works construction. While doing outside work, a tourist in the neighborhood offered him about two dozen ears of corn that he didn’t want to throw away. I cleaned it, gave away about six ears, and we’re eating corn for free, my favorite price! I may freeze some since we can’t really eat that much in a decent amount of time.
    Love your Target coupon!
