Frugal Friday 73

Happy Frugal Friday!

Here is how we saved money/spent money wisely/made extra money this week:

- Shutterfly had a deal for 101 free pictures. I combined the free photos with a gift card from Christmas and was able to get the prints plus shipping free. Saved: $23.70

- While visiting Evansville, our friends Debbie and India brought over a whole bag of hand-me-downs for Annabeth. We were able to keep a few dresses, shorts, shirts, and even a beautiful Snow White costume! The items that are too small or will be too small by spring/summer we passed on to Annabeth's friends Julia and Emilia.

- Mark and I had a date night. We did our usual "Evansville Date" sushi then a trip to Target. We enjoyed finding some good post-Christmas clearance deals for Annabeth and #2. We also purchased a gift that we will give later this month. We used a gift card to help purchase everything. Saved: $25

- After using nearly all of our return address labels during the Christmas season, I ordered new ones through Vistaprint and took advantage of a 25% off offer. Saved: $4.02

- Mark shovels snow in the winter. This week a client paid him $20.

- I found an awesome deal on a stroller (on a Facebook garage sale site) that will fit both Annabeth and #2. It was purchased new by the family and used only a handful of times. It is basically brand new and is much lighter than our single stroller. I only paid 40% of the retail price by buying used! Saved: $90!!

and the back seat :)

- I sold a pair of Annabeth's ruffle pants on Facebook. These were a huge splurge for me and I loved her in them! I was so happy to sell them to a high school classmate who has the cutest little girls! Made: $15

- I earned a $10 credit on ThredUp when a friend shopped through my referral link. I look forward to having that money to spend when I see something that I might like on the site.

Extra Made: $45

We had a good, but very cold week here. I felt pretty good for a couple of days and, for the first time since October, even was able to cook and serve real dinner one night. 

Happy Savings to All!
