Frugal Friday.....the September 28th Edition

Here's a few things we did this past week that were frugal.......

* I went to Weis and got the Friday freebie last Friday....

A can of chicken broth.  Geez, what a GREAT freebie.....not even a carton of chicken broth.  Can you spare it Weis? lolz

* Gas Points are expiring middle of next week.  Since we won't be here or near a Weis(PMITA)Markets then Hubs and I took our cars up to Weis and filled out.........

No point in letting a .30¢ discount on gas go to waste, right?

*  I found money!

Another penny in the Rite-Aid parking lot.  At this rate I'll have a dollar by 2022!  lolz

*  The lip balm from Kellogg's arrived this week........

Gotten for free from buying 2 boxes of Special K protein bars this Summer.

*  Here I am with my Basil Tree yesterday.........

Since the weather is questionable for when we get back from Maine I pulled this sucker up, plucked all the leaves off and made Pesto with it.
An hour later and very little work, I had 3 containers of pesto for the freezer.

*  We picked what will probably be the last of the tomatoes this week............

31.3 ounces.  I won't be able to update the Garden Totals until we get back but I do know it's well over 100 pounds now.

That's about it from me.

What frugal wins did you have this past week?



  1. That's a LOT of basil!! I love pesto...

  2. I posted mine-nothing that exciting, but kept myself form eating out this week. I didn't write about it much, but did a big shop at Kohls' earning Kohl's cash aplenty, that I will use this weekend for a Christmas gift or two for someone.

  3. Stocked up at Aldi yesterday while my husband was having Lasik done. Opposite side of town and I hate driving there but they have good stuff for cheap.

    Lasik wasn't cheap but I hoard my employer paid HSA funds so no out of pocket cost.

    Sluggy is sending me hair ties so I don't have to buy them this weekend! :)

  4. I don't think I have ever seen a basil plant that large. What did you feed it?

  5. Have a great time away. I had gotten 2 of the lip balms free through the same promo. My oldest daughter took one and I have been using the other.

  6. I agree- HUGE basil plant. I am just replanting for the winter.

  7. Now thats a lot of basil! No big deals or finds this week. Just did my regular grocery shopping at ALDI and Walmart. I did clean and organize the pantry a little which made me feel better. Wendy
