Welcome to Frugal Friday! I hope everyone had a relaxing and festive Thanksgiving. We did an intimate lowkey meal here with just daughter and son in-law though we heard from our two sons, my brother and the nephew via text and phone.
Please keep the folks and their families who were gunned down at the Walmart in Chesapeake, Virginia in your prayers. That's the Walmart near my brother's house which I have been shopping in many times when visiting there.
Here are a few frugal wins lately.......
* Spent last Saturday with son in-law parents and extended family for a Turkey Day gathering. So much food his mom put out and it was all yummy! I brought a rather lackluster mac and cheese....it turned out too dry as I baked it the day before and I had to use a new to me brand of pasta....yeah, I am blaming that pasta. lolz
* I am slow sometimes(shut up Anne, Kim and Sissie!). Our dogs like a little wet food, specifically Bella brand,, in their kibble for meals. I had been buying it at Walmart, the least expensive place in these parts to get it. I finally had a lightbulb moment and checked online sources and found it cheaper at Amazon if I do a subscribe & save deal. My first order arrived on Tuesday and it's enough to cover the puppies through the end of 2022. Bonus points because I used Amazon credits to cover most of the purchase so 36 trays of food cost me $13.38 OOP
* Daughter has decided she'll watch the puppies while we are on our cruise so we won't have a kennel boarding bill to pay afterwards. We'll still have to pay to park our car at the Dallas airport for 2 weeks so that sort of negates any savings on the kennel but I'm not complaining.
* I found money this past week!
Found a penny in Walmart on Saturday.
Went to a different Walmart on Sunday to pick up Rxs and found another penny on the way out the door.
Same trip I picked up Wendy's for lunch while doing laundry at my Daughter's house. I found 2 quarters in the Drive-thru. Who throw away quarters? Score!
I also used an old gift card to pay at Wendy's so double win.
Then on Monday when I cleaning in what will be my sewing room I found a dime and a penny wedged under the baseboard trim in that room. This house just keeps giving and giving. lol I've found a total of .15¢ so far and Hubs found a nickel under the back porch when he was under there cleaning up trash.
Total Found This Year.....$23.80
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!
