Penny Smart #10

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

I found broth on clearance for $0.33 a container.  I added 8 to my pantry.
Someone from church upgraded their refrigerator and chest freezer.   They asked Chuck if he wanted them for scrap.  When he picked them up he realized they were still working.  Our electric company allows you to turn in two working appliances a year and pays $50 for them.  We turned them in and receive a check for $100.
Our local Chick-fil-A offers free Chicken Minis every Tuesday.  We took advantage of them this week along a free hash round on my app.  Megan and I we're able to eat breakfast for $2.28.  The cost of drinks.
Said yes to free canning jars.
Hit a garage sale and Megan purchased all of these fishing items for $2.  A great price since the plastic containers go for over $3 new.  She was able to feed her fishing hobby obsession for little out of pocket.
Since we are taking about money lets talk debt also.  If you follow the numbers on the sidebar you may have noticed that we added to our debt.  It's medical debt from when I ended up in the ER with a colon infection and the ensuing test .  *bummer*  I'm not happy about it at all!  You do what you have to do to stay well.  

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.

Difficult roads often lead to beautiful destinations... keep moving forward, friends. 


  1. Free jars? Yes! Those little plastic divider boxes are useful for other things. Sorry you had the infection. Bummer.

  2. Great deals! Especially with your electric company, that's awesome!

  3. Wow...Im always looking for bargains. You got some fab deals..

  4. It is hard to get out of debt, but you are doing the right thing. Great deals especially the electric company.

  5. Great deals!! I'm waiting for our Chick-Fil-A to offer free minis, they usually do it about twice a year for a month each time. I'm so sorry you were sick and I'm sorry it added to your debt. I totally understand that, my medical debt from last year still has me behind.

  6. Medical bills are a bummer. But good job with your money saving this week!

  7. I’m sorry about the setback but your other goodies are so Good!
    I’m sure you know it already but your husband is very resourceful.

  8. No one in this country should have medical debt, it's absolutely shameful.

  9. Great bargains.

  10. Getting out of debt to tough for most of us. My daughter would have been debt-free by October, but they both at the same time lost their jobs. Life happens! Loving the free canning jars. I have been teaching my girls all summer to be conservative with paper products, laundry detergent, shampoo, and conditioner. By doing so, it save us money not to buy them as often.

  11. brush the powder along your hairline beginning at your ears. Use a cosmetic sponge to blend well, then brush your hair over the hairline.
