Frugal Friday......the October 12th Edition

Here are a few frugal wins we had this week.......

*  I did very little grocery shopping this past week.  Trying to eat down the freezer and pantry instead.

*  Here's my score from finding money this past week........

.49¢ in assorted coins.  Kim has a bit more we found jointly.  Kim also beat me at the finding change game on the trip. She has no shame and will do ANYTHING to pick up a coin! lolz

* While out shopping with Kim on Sunday I took her to a local donut place.  It was almost time for the shop to throw out the morning's made donuts so we got a free dozen for buying a dozen.  WooHoo! 

Those puppies didn't last very long with Kim around.....hehehe

*  No Weis Freebie last week because we weren't in town here.  The kids didn't buy any groceries while we were gone even though I left them some money.  Win-win!

*  All this was plundered from Rite-Aids in 3 states last week.......

Grand total spent was $6.38 in Bonus Cash, no actual money was harmed in the making of these deals.  ;-)

*  Sunday instead of taking Kim and Joel out for dinner, I spent $5.15 at Weis and made dinner.  I also turned a day old bakery 50% off French bread loaf into French Toast for breakfast the next morning before they left for Philly.

*  Used the weekend and off-peak hours to do laundry.....and boy! did we have a LOT of laundry to do!! lolz

* I picked the last of the basil on Thursday before the frost that was expected that night........

It's in the oven now drying.

* Went to my semi-annual dental appointment for a cleaning.  No cavities so there will be no co-pays.
Go me!  I also loaded up on freebies while I was there........

5 x toothpastes
4 x mouth rinse
13 x $1/1 Qs for floss and rinse

That's about it for around Chez Sluggy.
What frugal wins do you have this past week?



  1. Howdy! This post couldn't be written any better! Looking at this post reminds me of my previous
    roommate! He constantly kept talking about this.
    I am going to forward this information to him. Pretty sure he'll
    have a very good read. I appreciate you for sharing!

  2. I haven't said lately how much I enjoy stopping by to see your shopping.

  3. You change finders! I am lucky to find a few pennies, but there was a quarter in my warm coat I dragged out. Lucky you that the kids did not spend your money-I'm sure they were left fully stocked up.

  4. I did not find any change on the ground, but I cleaned out my sock drawer and found 600 bucks I had stuffed in there and forgotten about

  5. Okay girls from now on when we visit Anne we ask to go to the bathroom and we rifle her sock drawer. All in this with me say......

  6. I just pulled in the last of the tomatoes ( or as you would say 'maters' as well as the parsley and sage.
