Frugal Friday

I'm so ready for Friday. Another long week, as we are deep into Q4 at work, and things are there usual crazy pace right now.

Here are some of the frugal things we did this week:

  • Had an offer for $5 off of a $30 purchase at our local grocery store, plus the purchase would generate a $5 off coupon. I don't shop at the grocery store often (we do most of our shopping at Costco & a local produce stand), but I needed a few things for Thanksgiving that neither of our primary stores carry. The store had recently remodeled, so they were also having a few great offers on specific items, so I made a list & bought quite a few things for $27 ($22, after subtracting the future reward.)
  • All meals made at home (or, free at work). No eating out
  • Sold an item I'd had listed on eBay for a while, earning $20. I love those kind of surprises. 
  • Started packing things we'll need for Hawaii. Portable snacks, coffee pods, laundry pods, etc. 
  • I revised my list of everything I can start listing on eBay in the next month or so, or more likely January when I'm not traveling.
  • Passed on an opportunity to go to Las Vegas for a long weekend (free room, free food), because with time off of work & flights, it would still be expensive, and we will just be coming back from Hawaii. Aside from the money, I don't enjoy two trips so close. I like to have time to really enjoy them, and find that doesn't happen when they are stacked on top of each other.
What about you? Any frugal wins this week?

  1. I don't like trips close together either - I would probably have passed on it too since you are there regularly. A week without eating out - a huge win in my books.
