Last Week's Frugality
I saved my apple peels(we love our fried apples for breakfast) and cooked them in water to get a pint of apple juice and a pint of apple butter. Nothing like making something yummy from scraps you are going to get rid of! I made good use of my strainer from the Goodwill!
I was able to pick up salad mix, and rolls in the reduced section of the grocery store and saved several dollars on Tom's birthday dinner. I also found packages of cake mix that are half the size of a boxed mix on sale for 25 cents each and bought 30 of them. Picked up 2 Taco Bell taco kits for 50 cents each! SCORE! I found a box of Hamburger Helper (I don't usually buy this anymore but potato stroganoff is my favorite) for 25 cents--I just couldn't pass this up! I found bags of cheese doodles reduced to 25cents per bag--they are DD#2;s favorite snack. I bought 4.
I have to tell you that as I write this at 3:51 in the am, that I am being serenaded by my DH and Shih Tzu snoring. :) Yes, I blog sitting in bed at 3am! What can I say, I cannot sleep! Lol!
Well, I guess that is it or at least what I can remember! What frugal things did you do last week?
