My Frugal List: Week of May 14. 2018
Wednesday I had to go to the dentist for a cleaning. I have a cracked filling, so I made an appointment to get that fixed. I was given some items for free.
There is a Stop & Shop near my dentist's office so I stopped in there after my appointment. The meat manger was marking meat down. I love when that happens. I got chicken cutlets for $1.29 a pound. That is a crazy good price for around here. I also got some other marked down items.
Thursday was back to work. We went to the local college that night to look and see what was being thrown away and boy was there a lot. We did great. It was raining lightly so not to bad. We got 8 mini fridges, that my son cleaned out for me. We got a small vacuum that I took apart and cleaned. It works great and had all of it's attachments. It is light enough that YD can carry it upstairs. Our vacuum is heavy and she always needed help. We were hoping to get back another night but the night we wanted to it was pouring rain. Neither one of us wanted to get soaked to the bone so we skipped it. I will be listing most of our finds on Craigslist and put the money towards the college fund.
I was asked to work on Friday because of all of the rain and Deadpool 2 came out. It made up for me calling out on Tuesday.
Saturday was YD Junior Prom. They do a cruise around Manhattan. We had paid for her ticket earlier in the year. She did her own hair, makeup and nails. She wore a pair of OD heals. All I had to buy was the dress. I used a coupon for it. She looked amazing. We have 2 weddings later this year. She can wear it to one or both if she chooses.
Sunday I was asked if I could work. Raining again. So I took the extra shift. It ended up getting nice during the day. Hubby tilled part of my garden that needed it. He then cooked dinner. Isn't he great. So after dinner I planted 50 tomato plants and 50 lettuce seedlings. So happy to have it started.
We ate very well this week. Dinners were pasta with meat sauce, fried chicken cutlets, cheese quesadillas, chicken fajitas, and pancakes. I did get a pizza one night with a $2 off coupon.
We paid bills online, hung laundry on racks, use cloth rags instead of paper towels, combined errands, brought lunch to work. I filled out several surveys, requested 2 free samples and used Ibotta. I added codes to Kellogg too.
We had a busy week but we did get a lot done. We also made some great memories. What did you do this week that was frugal?
