Frugal Friday....the June 10th Edition

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

*  Not really frugal but a win nonetheless.....

I culled more items from the house to send off to charity.  4 more bags of clothing that is too big now, some handbags/tote bags, a couple of Christmas ornaments and a knee support that didn't. *snort*
More stuff out of our lives that we can't/don't use. 8-)

*  I received a Rakuten check.......

Actually got it last week but I cashed it in this week.  It's not much as the only online shopping I did was from Easy Spirit this Winter and 2 Rite-Aid online orders in May(which I didn't pay any $$ for-just Bonus Cash).  Free money back for not spending any cash at least at R-A?  Yes please!

*  The only eating out this past week was on Thursday.  We went to Applebee's for lunch and used one of the gift cards I have.  The only OOP was for the tip.  

*  I sold something on eBay!

3 boxes of limited edition Starbucks K-Cups.  I picked these up in Jan. or Feb. for $2 a box.  Sold them before their Best Buy date.  Go me.  After fees I'll net a bit over $10 profit here.

*  As we get work done in the house we will be having to purchase stuff at home repair stores so I picked up a Lowe's gift card at Rite-Aid.  This gave me $16 in BC so I'll parlay that into more free stuff from R-A. 8-)

*  Hubs and I went to Ollie's(Good Stuff Cheap!)on Thursday and used a 15% off coupon they had mailed me before it expired.  I picked up some food items....

Popcorn and Pretzels to keep me from eating worse things.  Some pasta noodles, canned soup(can't make it for this cheap), water flavoring, a graham cracker pie crust for 4th of July pie making, applesauce cups and a bag of Brownie Brittle(so I don't eat much worse in the calorie count  brownies).  All this cost me $15.57.

*  I did some Ibotta and ShopKick deals at Walmart.....

All this cost me $20.98 after tax, minus Qs and $10 in fee gift cards.  I earned back $25.05 between Coupons dotcom digital Q, Ibotta rebates and bonus and Shop Kicks earned(I also earned some ShopKicks from scanning products in store that I didn't purchase).  So a net gain of $4.07 back.
The cereals will go into my Food Bank donation box, the toiletries/HBA may be used or go into a Giveaway and the veggie dogs and raisin bread will be eaten.

*   I found money this past week!  

When I was out on Tuesday I found a dime at the Rite-Aid South of here and a penny in one of the self-checkout machine change returns at Walmart.
Not a big win but it's better than getting skunked 2 weeks in a row. lol

Total Found in last Week.... .11¢
Total Found This Year.....$13.03

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. Sounds like a good week, Sluggy. I liked your knee support that didn’t comment. 😂

  2. I’m going to pick lettuce and spinach when the rain stops. Found the first little zucchini that should be ready in a few days. I planted four zucchini plants this year so should have a buttload soon.

  3. I think anyone clever who sells anything on Ebay.
