Frugal Steps and Stumbles


Frugal Steps:

  1. I used my Kroger fuel points to get 80 cents off per gallon. I paid $18 to fill my minivan’s tank.
  2. I I got free issues of O magazine and Country Living in the mail.
  3. My mother made two huge fruit trays and dip for the birthday party today.
  4. I watched Victoria on the PBS Roku app, Big Bang Theory on, and the Gilmore Girls on Netflix.
  5. I borrowed a book from the library to use at our Girl Scout meeting.

Frugal Stumbles:

  1. My son got McDonald’s twice this week. I stopped and got a ginormous Coke at Wendy’s after having to supervise students on the OB unit the morning after teaching until 10:15 PM. I am old and I can’t burn the candle at both ends like I used to.

  • Yeah – we stopped at Wendy’s today – each got a Jr. Bacon Cheeseburger ($1.89) and a Jr. Frosty (free). I’m thinking lunch for 2 on the road for $4 – that’s still winning. Our Mc D’s has started doing “any size soda $1” – so I go there when I can for drinks. 🙂
