Frugal Friday.....the January 11th Edition

Let's take a look at the frugal wins we had at Chez Sluggy this past week............

*  I got the Weis Freebie last Friday.......

These will get used and we were almost out of croutons too.

*  I found some money!

A dime in the Walmart parking lot.  Sorry for the bad photo. 8-(

2 dimes found in the Weis(PMITA)Markets in town, both at the register but on the customer's side of it.  30¢ for the week!

*  I got some free food(and half price food)....

These jars of pimento were half price according to the shelf tag so I picked up three.  Checked my receipt after the transaction and they rang up regular price.  So I went over to Customer Service, after taking a photo of the shelf tag to show them.........

I got 1 free since they rang up incorrectly and I got back 50% what I paid on the other two so I paid $1.30 total for all 3 jars.

*  The best "deal" at the store this past week........

Turkey breakfast sausage packs were on sale for $4 each.  These two also had $3 off instant meat discount stickers on them plus I had a $1/2 Peelie Q(from buying 2 packs last month and could only use 1 Peelie Q on those)so these cost me .50¢ each.

*  I also found a few more Christmas clearance items at a different Weis this past week.......

2 x Glade double pack of pumpkin scented candles for $2.  I used Qs so paid $1 for each 2-pack.
2 x Ghirardelli peppermint chocolate chunks for $1 each(goes into the baking goods box).
4 x Walker's shortbread cookies-the Holiday shapes were $2 a box.  I had $1 off Qs from the box I bought the week before so paid $1 per box.
1 x Ferrero Roche hazelnut chocolates in a Xmas tree shaped box for $2.  I had a $1/1 IPQ to use so paid $1 for the box.
$9 spent OOP on over $35 worth of reg. retail items.

What frugal wins did y'all have this past week?



  1. Those Walkers shortbreads are so good. I can't buy them because I will eat the whole box!

    I almost bought some new black leggings because I couldn't find mine but my sister in law gave me a pair that she didn't want anymore. Good enough for around the house. Found a penny at Giant Eagle. Used a $1.50 Catalina to get a loaf if bread and two cans of veg for 46 cents. Got a free chicken sandwich in my chickfila app.

  2. Stocked up on smelly good candles marked way down at Ross and TJ max. Marked, marked, marked down.

  3. You got a lot of good deals this week. I would have picked up the pimentos too. Good deal still getting Christmas markdowns. Woo Hoo :)

  4. I don't even know how I ended up here, but I thought this post was good.
    I do not know who you are but definitely you're going to a famous blogger if
    you aren't already ;) Cheers!

  5. Well done! About the only truly good deals I had other than not shopping much at all was a 47 cent black swan ballerina ornament for Pip and 6 rolls of wrapping paper @ 25 cents each.

  6. I would like to thank you for the efforts you have put in writing this blog.
    I am hoping to see the same high-grade content from you in the
    future as well. In truth, your creative writing abilities
    has encouraged me to get my own website now ;)

  7. Not much frugality (due to lack of deals), BUT I stuck to the list I made and did not deviate from menu plan for the week.
