A look around finds these frugal happenings for this past week...........
* A earned a free meat item at Weis.
The receipt showing what it cost if I didn't get it for free with Weis Points. I had almost 600 points(only used 400 for the ham), most of those were earned doing surveys and not from spending $$ at Weis.
* I earned $4.70 in Ibotta this past week. Mostly that was at Weis, not Rite-Aid. There was a $2 Hatfield ham rebate good at Weis, but the single ham steaks also qualified. Ham steaks were 2/$5, got $4 in Ibotta rebates so they ended up costing .50¢ each.
* I got the Weis freebie last week.........
Just what I needed after getting that GALLON jar of olives at the Amish discount grocery that week before for $3.99.....another free small jar of olives. lolz
* I found money!
Another quarter at R-A in the corner by the register peeking out from the floor mat last Friday.
Then this crusty, salt laden penny, also at R-A, next to the cigarette butt holder outside by the front door on Friday.
This penny at Malacari's produce that same day.
There was another penny I forgot to photograph that day at Rite-Aid as well. Total of .27¢ on Saturday.
This nickel was found at Rite-Aid on Sunday in the middle of the entrance as I walked in right out in the open. Sweet.
This dime was found, where else but Rite-Aid, back in the Pharmacy area on Tuesday.
And another crusty penny found that same day on the sidewalk outside of Rite-Aid.
The day after Christmas I got dragged out "after Xmas shopping" and I found these two pennies in Staples. I didn't buy anything so I was "up" 2¢ for the day. lol
Grand Total of last week's take........... .71¢. 8-)))
* I combined a 3 day Q(Spend $15 on select Beauty items/Get $5 off)at Rite-Aid with an In-Ad $2/1 Nivea lip balm/men's items and a 50% clearance on one type of Nivea shave cream with 2 Cover Girl deals(1-Spend $15/Get $5 BC 2-$5 BC wyb certain CG foundation monthly)to buy this stuff.........
Should have been $10.51 spent in BC and $15 earned back in BC.
Of course I bought the wrong Cover Girl foundation(should have bought the Matte finish)so I had to return them and bought the correct ones(they were $1 more each than what I bought so I couldn't just exchange). I got $8.51 back in BC AND $9.28 in cash(huh?? prolly all those Qs I used).
The the return/rebuy I "spent" $9.76 in BC and earned back $20 in new BC because rebuying 2 Cover Girl triggered the weekly $5 wyspend $15 CG deal again, so the 2 x $5 CG foundation worked and the $5 wyspend $15 G worked again.
I should make mistakes like that on purpose more often. ;-)
That's about it for this week. Christmas and having family here has kept me from going out and spending money lately.
What frugal wins happened to y'all this past week?
Tell me all about it!
