Frugal Friday........the October 29th Edition

Let's see what frugalness I got into this past week.......

*  Not so frugal now but it will be in the future.  Ocean State Job Lot had an event this week-Spend at least $30 and earn 40% of what you spend on a Crazy Deal Card.  I went 2 times this past week.  I picked up some Christmas goodies as well as houseware needs(new door mats)and some food items.  Between a trip to the Produce Market and the food items I stocked up on at OSJL my food spending was $174.87 which put me at $296.49 for October.  So I won't have the ultra-low grocery spending I was shooting for in October but I am still well under my $400 target AND I have 40% savings on everything I bought so when I go back to OSJL I have lots of free money to use! woohoo

*  I decluttered some more items and Hubs hauled them off to Sallie's.  I didn't get any photos before they left but it was another 32 items so we decluttered a total of 50 items in October to the Salvation Army.

*  Last Friday this all went to the food bank. .......... 

64 more assorted items from food to toiletries.

*  I received that $10 Visa card for buying Pepcid a couple of weeks ago.........

*  I got my flu shot at R-A.........
It was free and I received a $5 off a $25 order coupon to use in the store.  I also got a free bottle of hand sanitizer from the pharmacist.

*  I found money!
This dime at Rite-Aid last Friday.

Then this dime at the Salvation Army store on Monday.

Found Money This Week..... .20¢
Found Money This Year....$18.88

That's about it this week.  

What frugal wins did you experience lately?  Tell us all about it!!

Have a great weekend and Happy Halloween!



  1. We have a Mike's Discount in the get twin cities but it's far enough away to be considered an outing for me. Until my daughter can eat regularly, I won't bother but it sounds similar. We just don't have much for discount stores here, not even bread anymore.

  2. I made an extra mortgage principle payment yesterday and the new payoff date is March 2023. Increasing the monthly amount in December so that should take some more time off.
