This a place where I share how I've stretched a penny, saved a penny and in many cases spent no pennies.
Purchased a kit that contained all of the spices I needed to make dill pickles for $2.99.
I've been using rain water to water my flowers. Free from Mother Nature!
Patsy at A Working Pantry has a $5 or less pantry challenge. She will take five dollars a week and add to her pantry. This is separate from her regular grocery spending. Since adding to my pantry is a goal of mine I decided to take up this challenge.
I added seven cans of pork and beans. They were on sale for $0.62 cents making my total $4.34. Yes, I know I could increase my savings by using dried beans. Both Chuck and I were raised eating these and it's our preference. Sometimes it's better to pay a few extra pennies to have something you enjoy and know that you will eat.
Wealth gained hastily will dwindle, but whoever gathers little by little will increase it. Proverbs 13:11
It's a great reminder to tackle our financial goals bit by bit. 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 these days. I find it's much harder to stretch my pennies into nickles. *smile* I find it encouraging to hear about other frugal adventures and I hope you do also.
May your day be filled with joy in the journey!
