Last week wasn't a very frugal week but here goes!
I packed my lunch 3 out of 4 days, I was off Friday for my birthday!
I usually buy a box of Pappas Eggs opera creams for my family for Easter, but I decided to make a batch of Opera Creams instead! DH loved them but the kids were not as impressed. I thought they were amazing though! I'll post on how I made these later this week!
I found a spiral sliced ham on sale for $1.15 per lb. for Easter dinner. We also had roast beef and gravy using a roast my Aunt bought for me for Christmas. She always gives me a ham and lately a big beef roast as well! Thanks Aunt Jane!
I made pies instead of buying a premade dessert for Easter dinner. My children love butterscotch and lemon meringue pie. They were very happy campers let me tell you!
I used my Kroger points to fill up the gas tank. Saved several dollars! We use the Kroger Pharmacy so our points add up quick!
I just found out I get a 3% raise effective yesterday! I plan on increasing my savings at the credit union by this amount.
Instead of buying expensive dinner rolls for our Easter dinner, I asked my daughter to pick up several loaves of the Everything bread from Walmart. It is usually just $1.00 per loaf and it is stinkin' amazing. For less than the cost of a bag of 6 rolls, we have enough bread for the entire family and then some! I know baking my own would be much cheaper but I am not that skilled in bread making yet! So I am happy with this alternative!
That's about it for Last Week's Frugality--How did you save money last week?
