Frugal Friday 153

Happy Frugal Friday!

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

- Saturday morning we enjoyed a FREE breakfast for Law Enforcement Officers and their families at the Legion in Franklin. Our family was thankful for the wonderful breakfast and support of local law enforcement.

- Annabeth and I enjoyed Saturday evening at the pool for just $2. We went in after 5 pm (when everyone is just $2/person) and I had a FREE children's entry coupon.

- Monday night Annabeth and I enjoyed a FREE night at the pool as part of a birthday party. Thank you to Drew Sherry for the invitation to his 3rd birthday! We had so much fun!

- We took advantage of Kids Eat Free Tuesdays at Chilli's and Mr. O had his first kids meal! A big moment! We saved: $9.98!

- Mark and Annabeth picked out a new, larger fish tank and a new fish for our family. Our first 8 fish have all died this summer and, after a lot of research, we are hoping that we have figured out how to be better fish owners. We gave our old tank and supplies to Mark's mom who works in a school office. We know the kids and staff at Trinity will enjoy a fish in the office!

We all love to watch our fish swim

- Mark worked one night at his part time job.

- Mark brought home food left over from scout summer camp. He brought: one bag of cereal, 3 lbs of bologna, 2 lbs of American cheese slices, one bag of Doritos, one unopened syrup and one box of pancake mix! This will feed us quite a few different meals! We love free!

- As we were leaving the dentist office on Thursday, Pam Parker from JP Parker Florist was taking an arrangement in. Annabeth's eyes lit up because she loves flowers. The two of them talked flowers for a few moments. Then as Ms. Parker left, she got a beautiful arrangement out of her van and gave it to Annabeth. It made Annabeth's day so special! Thank to JP Parker Flowers!

 Thank you JP Parker Flowers!
These made our day!

We had a great second week of school and are looking forward to a busy weekend with the Rileys.

Happy Savings to All!
