Frugal Friday...........the November 15th Edition

Here's what frugal wins we had this past week at Chez Sluggy.............

*  I got 2 more bottles of Gold Bond lotion this week using BC and gift card cred(no actual money spent), which earned me $3.10 in Ibotta cash rebate and a $10 Rite-Aid gift card as well.

See my Rite-Aid posts for more details. ;-)

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

I snagged the last bottle of it on the shelf. Now and again  Ex-College Boy will go buy Fruit Punch at the store for himself so I got the Freebie this week for him.

*  I also got a couple of Zataran's boxed bean/rice mixes at Weis that day.  They were 50% off on clearance......

But they rang up full price so it was off to the Customer Service desk for a refund.........

* On Thursday I had a semi-annual dental check-up.  No cavities meant just a cleaning so nothing paid out of pocket.
Plus I got a goody bag of samples............

*  I found half a cooked chicken breast and a leg pushed to the back of the fridge earlier this week.  It was still good so I used the leg meat & part of the breast to add to Chester's dinner a couple of nights after his surgery to get him to eat again.  The rest of the breast got made into Chicken Salad(I had an abundance of grapes bought at Aldi this past week for .99¢ lb. and an open bag of pecans so salad was a no-brainer.)for a couple of lunches here.
Keeping food waste at bay once more is a win!

*  I found money!

This shiny dime was laying under the self-checkout as I walked out of the Weis(PMITA)Markets last Friday.

This penny was found in an aisle in Weis on Saturday when I went there to attend their Open House(food tastings).

This dime was found in an aisle in Rite-Aid on Saturday when I went to use the rest of my Tresemme coupons.

I found this penny at Price Chopper as we walked into the door on Sunday.

And this dime also at Price Chopper on the way out of the store by the registers.

And the 2 pennies in this photo were found in two different locations in Rite-Aid by the pharmacy and the quarter was by the register up front so .27¢ richer when I left Rite-Aid on Tuesday.

A trip to Rite-Aid to return something after my dentist appointment netted me this .35¢, a quarter AND a dime on the floor at the register.

Weekly total..........94¢
A very good week for change!

*  I went to Weis on Saturday around noon for their product Open House.  In order to convince you to buy their products for the holidays(and to order pre-made goodies like bakery stuff and deli platters)they had samples set out all over the store with food items.  Cold Shrimp, Hummus and chips, apple cider, clementine oranges, 4 kinds of "gourmet" cookies, 2 kinds of cake/pie, smoked sausage, Jarlsberg cheese, mashed potatoes and mac and cheese were the stores offerings.  I left not needing to eat lunch! lolz

*  One day for lunch I got a 2 Subs for $11.99 text code from Subway so Hubs took my phone up to get lunch there and he used a gift card to pay.  Making the gift card go just a little bit further with a coupon code is a win in my book.

* Cash earned this week(refunds and/or rebates)came to $22.32 ($16.17 at Rite-Aid, $2.60 at Weis, $3.55 at Ibotta).

*  Kohl's sent me a 30% off Q and a $10 off anything promo chit this past week.  Not needing anything I went with Hubs up to Kohl's so he could find a pair of shoes for wearing out in the "poop field" with the doggies.  He wanted something that would be easy to slip on and off.  He won't buy shoes online(he has to try them on first-his rule!)and the only thing we could find in the store that met his criteria were these..........

A pair of Crocs.  He likes Crocs and has 2 pair but they both have ventilation holes in them so not so great to wear in the Winter with snow and ice.
It was the only pair of these particular color/style and they were miraculously in his size......and on clearance!!
So they were, after % off and $10 free chit, $13.99 OOP.
And even better, they sorta match the Crocs I bought at the shoe outlet in Rehoboth, Delaware last month..........

That's about it from here......

What frugal wins did y'all have last week?
Tell us all about it!



  1. Hi Sluggy, People in your town like to throw money away the way you have such great finds all the time. My area once in a while might find a coin. Did you have the 12.00$ coupon on Stouffers lasagna at weis I got party size 90 oz. for 99 cents what a buy.Keep on saving.

  2. Sounds like a good frugal week, Sluggy. You did find a lot of change. The Gold Bond lotion is very good.

  3. I am jealous of your money finding skills, I have found zip. Are people out there just too lazy to pick up the money they drop?

  4. I love finding change. It always makes me happy.

  5. Wonderful tems from you, man. I have be aware your stuff previous to
    and you are simply extremely excellent. I actually like what
    you've bought here, certainly like what you are stating and the way during whijch you
    say it. You make it enjoyable and you continue to take care of tto
    keep it sensible. I can not wait to learn much
    more from you. That is really a tremendous website.

  6. You always find so much change just lying around! I guess people don't think it is worth it to pick it up. Love the hubs new shoes!

  7. That is a lot of money! Well, a lot to find just lying around. I went to many places and did not find money. Maybe I need to look down more.

  8. I SWEAR you are a money magnet - I seem to be the total opposite - money just disappears around me!!

  11. I got a mailer with the Subway coupons and need to get them in the hubs car as he will frequently get a Subway and yes, saving a few pennies on something he will spend on anyway is good. I actually passed on my last Kohl's promo and Q because we just really didn't need anything. I've bought too much in the past to "save" money.
