Last Week's Frugality

 Hello Dear Readers,

     I had a so, so, week for savings. Here goes:

    Last week I packed my lunch all week.  I ate Breakfast at home before leaving for work!

    I was able to get 24 cans of green beans and 12 cans of corn for my pantry for free!  I used the Meijer rewards I had earned and the canned goods were on sale for 3/$1.  Nice addition to my pantry if I do say so myself!

   I batch cooked all of my meals for the next week on Sunday and also packed my lunches for the next week!  I did purchase some plastic 1 cup containers for this purpose, but they were on sale and I had a coupon!  They will be paid for in a week or less of packing my lunch.

      I did get some bad news.  I have a small avulsion fracture on the same foot I broke back in the summer. So it is casted and I will be off my feet for at least another 2 months.  Therefore I will not be able to get all of the canning I wanted to do done this fall.  I had been waiting until I got back on my feet but that is the way it goes. 2  months or more on crutches.
My Pretty Purple Cast!!
We did save $.30 per gallon on gas using our Kroger's rewards points!  $3 is $3!!
We have been staying home pretty much with my new fracture and all but that is good right?  Saving on gas and by not going out!
 My Mother make a large pot of beans and cornbread and shared with us for one night's supper. Yummy! Thanks Mom! No one makes cornbread like my Momma!
Well, that's about it for me, what have you been saving money on?
Please share so we can all learn from each other!
Frugal Blessings,

Fall Favorites


    I love Fall. I really love Fall!  I love warm apple cider, candy apples, sweater weather, pumpkins, leaves and just everything....Fall!   Here are a few of my favorite Fall things!  Enjoy!

Warm apple Cider--Easiest way is to heat cider (gallon) in crockpot and add 1 cup of cinnamon red hots to it and stir!!  This is wonderful!  You can add orange slices or cinnamon sticks to it if you want!
