Penny Smart #4

This a place where I share how I've stretched a penny, saved a penny and in many cases spent no pennies.

Graciously accepted five oranges from a friend.
I've been enjoying my free magazine subscription.  I'd love to share how to get this magazine, but I don't remember where I signed up.  Sorry! 
Accepted a free sample as I was walking out of Sam's Club. 
It had two packages of dish washing detergent, a bottle of degreaser, and a bottle of glass cleaner.  All things I will happily use. 
Scored some dish washing detergent from the clearance rack. Each bottle has 32 oz for $2.79.  The regular price was $3.99.
As I was going down the cleaning isle I looked at the shelf and noted that the current $3.99 bottle of Dawn has only 28 oz per bottle.  The new shopping game... same price, same product, less quantity.  They're sneaky if you aren't watching!

Accepted a discarded dishwasher to add to our scrap pile.

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!


  1. Love this post, great ideas. Keep them coming!

  2. I put the verse from Proverbs on my spare change jar after I saw it here. Thank you!

  3. Indeed, every penny counts, these days.
    And we have to be smart, to do the best we can, with what God gives us.
    Have a blessed weekend!

  4. I love these posts! I also got Dawn marked down at Kroger. Now I know why! Changing the amount in the bottle so new packaging is needed. I got 3 for 99-cents each, great deal!

  5. What a great post and you really did score a lot of items for free, as a few at a really great price. Good for you.

  6. Those are all great saves and they do add up!

  7. This is my first time on your blog, I've come over from Mountain Top Spice. I look forward to following your family's adventures!

  8. Wealth gained hastily will dwindle, but whoever gathers little by little will increase it.
    Proverbs 13:11 ... This is a wonderful Bible verse. I am going to keep it in my Home Journal. Also, thank you so much for visiting Homespun Cottage and for sharing your kind words. I hope that you have a lovely week. Homespun Hugs ♥ Teri

  9. It is always exciting to save a penny, or two or 100! Loved all the extra little bargains that you were able to come across, and I have noticed that shopping game goes on all the time. It is frustrating when trying to save pennies, for sure. Hope you are having a lovely start to your week :)

  10. I love reading about your bargains and frugal doings. :) Have a great week my friend!

  11. Free food is my favorite thing. Those oranges look so good. That cleaning kit is a very nice free sample. My husband says I have the magic to turn a nickel into a quarter. Little by little it all adds up.

  12. I really likes your blog! You have shared the whole concept really well and very beautifully soulful read!Thanks for sharing.
