Frugal Friday....the May 20th Edition

So here are a few of the frugal-ish things that happened here at Chez Sluggy this past week.......

*  I made two online orders at Rite-Aid this week.

This transaction was a $1.67 moneymaker.

This order was a $5.74 moneymaker.

*  Of course holding the Stockpile Sale was pretty frugal.  Got some coins for items obtained for little or nothing and those who bought the items from me got a great deal.  Razors, hair coloring and deodorant for $1?!!  Great deals.  Honestly I could have stood to get rid of more of it but I am happy with what left.

*   Spend a long day/night working the election, earning myself a few tax-free dollars. woot!

*  Went shopping with Hubs on Thursday to Ocean State.  I used free gift cards and we bought a few things with no OOP.

*  The painting in the house is almost done.  Just the kitchen and den left to go.  We have saved a bit by not hiring this job out.

*  We had a big lunch out on Thursday at Applebee's.  I used a gift card(it wasn't full so didn't quite cover the full cost + tip)and we paid a little OOP.  Better than paying fully OOP for food out. ;-)

*  It's been unseasonably warm here this past week as well as last week.  That= means not running the heat=we'll have a lower than normal electric bill for May.  Works for me!

*   I found money!

This penny at Rite-Aid on Friday.

This dime also on Friday at Rite-Aid.


This penny at the stockpile sale.  A gentleman dropped it and I picked it up to hand it to him but he said keep it.  You  don't have to tell me twice! lol

I went to Rite-Aid on Monday and found this dime there on that day.

Not bad for a found money week considering I only went to Rite-Aid two times this past week and I didn't go anywhere else besides to work the polls.

Total Found in last Week...... .22¢
Total Found This Year......$12.51

That's about all I've got for this past week.  

Any frugal wins in your neck of the woods?  Let's hear all about them!

And have a good weekend!  



  1. I set a personal record with Ibotta. $25.20 back for Impossible products and some money maker Nugz. Phocus water was also free.

    It looks like comments are working so I’ll be around with my oh so exciting stuff. 😀

  2. Alas nothing frugal around these parts.
    I did make a vat of chicken soup using nothing but old things in the fridge. It came out good.
