Frugal Friday.....the July 23rd Edition

 Some frugal stuff went down this past week and here are a few of the wins.....

*  Sissie her hubby and I went to Ollie's(Good Stuff Cheap!)as we found there was one pretty close to where they live.  I had earned a 10% off coupon so I shared it with Sissie and she loaded up on cheap stuff she needed. ;-)

*  There was no drive-thru Mickey D's Iced Teas after last Friday nor on my ride home.  I had brought single bottles of iced tea with me so I made sure to ice a couple down the night before I left for home.

*  I purposely stopped for gas(had just under a half a tank when I left Sissie's house)before I hit PA as MD gas is cheaper due to our outrageously high gas taxes in PA.  I used Gas Buddy and found the cheapest gas($2.95.9 per gallon)at a 7-11 in Thurmont, MD right on the road I took home.  Not a big savings as my fuel tank is tiny but it was .30¢ LESS per gallon than what we pay at home!

*  I found money!  Or rather "we" found money.

I got out at the drive-thru at Mickey's while Sissie drove the car up to the window.  I found this change before the window where you pay in the drive-thru lane.  I found another coin(a nickel I think?)by the window so dropped that one into their charity slot. 8-)

On Monday Sissie and I found all this........

Sissie found 2 pennies at the PO and I found 1 penny at the Giant grocery and then 2 pennies at the Aldi.  Sissie gave me her winnings.  I know Kim is hollering, "No Fair!" as she reads this....hehehe

Total Found This Week... .37¢
Total Found This Year...$12.46

*  After the Ollie's stop Sissie and her Hubby wanted to go to a neat old place to celebrate their 37th wedding anniversary so I was the 3rd wheel.  They insisted on treating me so who was I to decline? ;-)

*  And Kim made an appearance outside the restaurant........

She is the red one in the middle in this shot....*snort*

*  Sissie loaded me up with goodies before heading home.......excess pantry goods, she gave me a loaf of lemon pound cake for my Hubs and a container of peanut butter rice krispy treats.  Plus BUD the cat, my dear feline friend, gave me a bag of Peach Ring candies which are one of my favs(though I'll have to ration them out if I want to continue to lose weight).

* I stopped at a Rite-Aid on my way home and got all this.......

Spent down the Bonus Cash $8.92 and converted $20 to cash.

*  I went to Weis(PMITA)Markets on Thursday to pick up a few things, including some Buddig lunchmeat packets and got this Catalina.........

After coupons and Ibotta rebate each packet cost me .15¢ or .75¢ for all so this Catalina makes my cost for those lunchmeats free.  woot!

That's about all for the past week from Chez Sluggy and Chez Sissie........

What frugal wins did y'all have this past week?  Let's here all about them!
