Frugal Friday....the April 30th Edition

 This week's Frugal post will be short as I am rushed for time.

* I did a crazy number of Rite-Aid transactions the end of last week..........

These photos don't include the two online orders I placed.  Total OOP was $2.52 just because the online orders wouldn't let me use part of a R-A gift card. 8-(  

*  I made a trip to the P and R discount outlet for some produce last week.  They had freebies with a purchase up by the front door and I picked up these bags of cooked cannellini beans.......

I may end up freezing them and waiting until Fall to make a ham and bean soup for Hubs.

*  I knew I was leaving town soon so when I was over by the cheapest gas station this week I filled up.  With the discount I paid $2.84 per gallon rather than $3.02 at the most expensive station closer to home.

*  I found money!

First was 3 pennies at my Rite-Aid last Saturday.

I found a penny by the Customer Service desk at Weis(PMITA)Markets while I was talking with the CSM there.  I showed it to her and said that's cool but next I wanted to find something better, like a quarter!

So I go over to check-out and found a quarter at the self-checkout!.  Of course after I finished checking out I HAD to go  back and show the CSM the quarter.  She laughed and said I needed to buy a lottery ticket. lol

Then I found a penny at Walmart on after I checked out and was leaving the store.

Total Found Money This Week.... .29¢
Total Found Money This Year....$2.78

I did find a quarter when I was cleaning out my car on Wednesday in preparation for my short trip but that was already my quarter so I am not counting it here. 8-)

That's about all I can think of right now.

What frugal wins did y'all have this week?



  1. Does loose change just come running when you are around?

  2. My neighbor said he hates mushrooms and asked if I wanted some yesterday. I said “sure” and they turned out to be a bag of morels! My husband also hates mushrooms so I coated them in a beer batter, air fried and ate them all.

  3. I look for change but never find any. Of course you have to actually go somewhere to find it.

  4. Oh my goodness! Look at your Huge amount of RiteAid freebies, just wow!

  5. How neat on the free bans. I love it when stor4s do that.
