Groceries for $1.96. The drinks are a treat for lunch boxes and were $0.98 each after coupon. The lettuce and bread were free with a $10.00 purchase. I was already going there to spend over $10.00 so this was a bonus for that shopping trip!
The air conditioning has been off and the windows open for three days this week. Mid August in Central Indiana... wow!
We recently ordered pizza (yes, I know not frugal!) and they had a deal that you could add on an additional large pizza for $0.30. The extra pizza was frozen and made for a quick, inexpensive meal on a night when I had no desire to cook. We still have enough in the freezer for another meal and a lunch or two.
Picking goodies fresh from the garden.
One the slats on the blind pictured on the left had broken. The OCD in me can't stand it when blinds don't look nice. :) Chuck had saved some slats when he shortened the blinds and had it replaced and looking good as new in just a few minutes.
So there you go. I hope this encourages you to do things to save money. The old adage that every penny counts seems to apply more and more as I see prices of just about everything increase. I am not sure I will have five things to post about every week as many times my frugal accomplishment is simply staying home and making do with what I have. I find it encouraging to hear about others frugal adventures.
May your day be filled with joy and contentment!
