It's time for Lucky #13! Happy Frugal Friday!
Here is what we did to save money/spend money wisely this week:
- Annabeth enjoyed making two fun and frugal Turkey Crafts
- We also took advantage of a free morning dance class at our local library.
***If you think your local library is only for books or research you are SO wrong! In each place I have lived I have taken advantage of many adult activities: free classes (arts, computer, crafts, financial, etc), book clubs, discussion groups, and social outings. Now that we have Annabeth, I am also enjoying an array of children's activities: story time, dance time, tot-art, etc. Take advantage of FREE family fun at your local library**
- Annabeth enjoyed a FREE package of apples at McDonald's thanks to a Halloween Coupon from her Auntie Cassidy and Uncle Luke. Saved: $1.00
- My sister and I made a trade when I went to visit last weekend. I traded three magazines for two shirts and a skirt!
- I did an online survey after a Kroger shopping trip and added 50 extra fuel points to my Kroger card
- I did one of our two grocery trips for the month and with in store sales, ecoupons, and paper coupons saved 20% of our total bill. Saved: $14.78
- I was able to use coupons to get the following items TOTALLY FREE: 1 box of cake mix, 1 box of Cheerios, 1 Kroger frozen veggie, and 1 soup from the deli. Saved: $8.54
- Mark traded some of our venison for pork.
- Now that Annabeth has to have soy milk in addition to Mark, our milk bill has gone up quite a bit. I went to Silk.com and registered to win free Silk for a year and also signed up for coupons. We do not have a printer so I signed up for the USPS option. I am anxious to see how quickly our first coupons get here.
Total Saved: $24.32
What have you been doing to save money this week? Do you and your family take advantage of free library fun?
Happy Savings to All!
