I received a grocery coupon for $5.00 off your next purchase. I used it to purchase a gallon of milk, loaf of bread and a package of bacon. I spent $1.07 out of pocket.
It made an easy BLT dinner on a hot evening.
My sister needed a new refrigerator due to a temperature control issue that had already been repaired once. They decided not to put any additional money into a 14 year old frig. That benefited us as we have the same model.
Chuck picked it up and striped parts off of it. We now have a working ice maker for no money out of pocket! Eventually the frig will be taken to the scrap yard earning a few dollars.
We were given three free sandwich cards as a thank you for some volunteer work.
Thanks to the cards and planning carefully we were able to enjoy a frugal dinner. We each used our sandwich card then added a large waffle fry to share, a small shake for Chuck and Megan and I shared an iced tea. We were able to eat a meal out for under $6.
For entertainment we spent many afternoons cooling off in the pool.
Since the pool is in my parents' backyard the only cost was gas.
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 find it encouraging to hear about other frugal adventures.
May your day be filled with joy and contentment!
