Frugal Friday......the May 17th & 24th Edition

I didn't get the time to post last Friday about our frugal wins that week so today's edition is chalk full of two weeks worth of frugaliciousness!
Aren't you excited?!? ;-)

Here goes........

* While at Weis May 10th I got that Friday's freebie........

* While out to Weis(PMITA)Markets last Friday to buy the graduation cake, I got the Freebie.........

Only the coupon didn't come off making it free.  I had my brother and an ice cream cake sitting in a hot car so didn't go back in and stand in line to get my money back so Hubs is taking the receipt/item/printout from their FB page that shows it was free today to get my cash back. ugh.

* Grocery Deals the past 2 weeks?  I can't think of anything I bought that was a great buy other than these..........

The after shot of 3 lobsters gotten on sale at Price Chopper. 8-)))

*  While out running a few errands after Daughter's award ceremony I found money!

A penny in the line at Dollar Tree.  The woman in front of us dropped more change but she picked that up. 8-(

* At the graduation in the lobby of the hall they had a table set up selling, water bottles, stuffed animals, balloons, and a large assortment of University clothing.  There was also a Starbucks in the courtyard of the building that was open so you could fulfill your addiction there.  We all resisted opening our wallets and buying any of this stuff.

* The only meal we ate out while all the family was here that week was dinner after the diploma ceremony.  Would have been so easy to just eat out but I didn't want all those extra bills.  My brother offered to pay for Chinese out on Sunday but I said no and grilled us steak and corn instead.

* I sold diapers too..........

7 packs of diapers sold on Mother's Day for $35 in my wallet!

*  And this week I made this much on Thursday..........

6 packs sold for another $30!

*  I got a refund at Rite-Aid for something I returned...........

$3 in cash to go into my R-A refund/post coupon envelope.

* I found more money!
This week when we went to Price Chopper to pick up the cheap live lobsters I picked this up.........

Another penny by a register. Not much but it spends just as well as a $100 bill. ;-)

* Speaking of money, the Ibotta rebate and bonus for one of our motel reservations for our March trip to SC/NC came through.  I made that reservation in February and it was pending since the trip so took 3 months to hit my account. I got a total of $30.51 between the rebate, bonus and 2 other bonuses for multiple items bought in Feb.  I am still waiting on $21.93 in rebates for the other two motel bookings from that trip.

* When Daughter went through her stuff and decided on what to take and what to trash she left these..........

Large rawhide bones and knuckles that she brought here 3 years ago for Cinnamon but her dog never chewed on them.  They were all excavated from the bottom of a large toy basket she had for her dog here.  She gifted them to Chester since he will gnaw on them.

Chester promptly claimed one of the knuckles, drug it into his bed and started gnawing away.
I think what's in that photo above will be a lifetime supply for our Chihuahua as his tiny teeth don't make much headway. lolz

* Other than running errands(grocery store, Rite-Aid, diaper meet ups)I have stayed home this week and worked on taking back and emptying my house.

Free entertainment and exercise! hehehe

That's it for the last two weeks here.

What frugal wins did y'all have over the last 2 weeks?



  1. You did really great with resale items. Pup is small, but he would dive into those bones like a German Shepherd.

  2. OMG some of those bones are almost as big as Chester :) Such a cute picture of him. We kind of failed this week. I didn't want to eat out at all yet had 2 nights of takeout during this carpet redo as completely and utterly exhausted. Today we move everything back into place....and are eating healthy. Grilled chicken (or pork chops) and salad!

  3. Wow Chester with his girlfriend and his bone. (He he I meant his big bone, I mean his.....) Never mind know matter how I say it, it sounds well bad

  4. Love the word "frugaliciousness!" I read your blog regularly but I'm cowardly about sticking my lurker neck out to post. This is my first posting here but I hope not my last...

  5. I wish I had your secret for finding money - you are amazing!!! Chester is so adorable with that chew....we used to have a Great Pyrenees that would have made that disappear in 12 seconds flat :)

  6. What i don't realize is actually how you are no longer really much more smartly-preferred
    than you might be right now. You are so intelligent.
    You already know thus significantly when it comes to
    this matter, made me personally consider it from so many numerous angles.

    Its like women and men are not fascinated until it's one thing to do with Girl gaga!
    Your personal stuffs excellent. Always handle it up!

  7. wonderful issues altogether, you just received a new reader.
    What might you recommend in regards to your put up that you simply made some days ago?
    Any sure?

  8. Great job as always. That is wonderful that you sold so many diapers this week. We had college move out this week so Hubby and I went garbage picking. I sold the first mini fridge in less then 24 hours. I have 2 people coming today to hopefully get 2 more. All of the money is going to my youngest's college fund. She went through all of the clothes that we grabbed. She picked about 20 items out. I washed everything and made up 2 boxes to send to Thred Up. Hopefully I will get credits. The rest went to the church. We also found a flat screen TV, a fan and blow dryer. Not a bad haul this year.

  9. Found sleeveless linen dresses on Amazon that actually fit a tall person. I hate shopping, need them for an upcoming trip and they were under $20. I’m 5’10” so summer dresses that don’t show my underwear are a minor miracle!

  10. I am not really excellent with English but I find this really easygoing to interpret.

  11. Hi, I do believe this is an excellent blog. I stumbledupon it ;) I
    am going to return once again since i have book-marked it.
    Money and freedom is the greatest way to change, may you be rich and continue to help other people.
