Last Week's Frugality
Hope you all had a great week! I have had a very good week myself!
I posted some redneck wineglasses on a Facebook yard sale page and sold 4! I cleared $20 on them!! Cha ching!!
I had a grad cake order and cleared $22 on it! Yippee!!!
Our local Meijer had hotdogs on sale for $.69 per pkg. I was able to add 10 to my freezer stash. They also had cake mix for $1 per box and as I have a wedding cake to make in June and my Granddaughters birthday cake in 2 weeks, I added 20 boxes to my pantry.
I added 2 jars of pepperoncini to my Christmas stash this week--both were on sale at Meijer. Walmart had jars of roasted red peppers cheap so I bought one of those for my Christmas stash also. I now have all canned veggies/olives for the antipasta tray I serve on Christmas eve. My Christmas stash list (on the side) is growing!! Every bit I pick up early will make the holidays much better financially!
My Goodwill trip was pretty successful--I found a top for just $1.39 and it is nice enough to wear to work. I found thank you cards for an upcoming shower and a bag of stuff--4 pkgs. beading cord, leather cording and miscellaneous odds and ends for $1.00. This will be great for bracelets for gifts!!
I saved $.30 per gallon on gas using my Kroger points.
I purchased a nice looking rhubarb plant to add to my garden. Perennial veggies are awesome! I look forward to Rhubarb pie and jam for years to come. While this was a small outlay of cash it is an investment for our future pantry!
Well, that is about everything for me! What have you saved money on lately?
