Frugal Steps and Stumbles

Frugal Steps:

  1. I did a CVS survey for $10 in Extra Care Bucks.
  2. I got a $15 Ebates check in the mail.
  3. I pay for Hulu with Swagbucks gift cards. My membership expires in 3 days, so I requested a $25 Hulu gift card using Swagbucks. That should cover me for about 3 months. I try to earn at least one $25 gift card per month.
  4. My mom watched the youngest twice this week while I took another child to appointments.

Frugal Stumbles:

  1. My son picked up a nasty stomach bug and passed it to us Sunday and Monday. I had planned on working some hours both days but instead spent it napping and zoned on the couch bingewatching episodes of Downton Abbey for the 90th time. I might pick up a few extra hours tomorrow to make up for it.

  • I love Ebates. Honestly, I kind of assumed it was a gimmick until my wife convinced me to try it. Well, I got 10% cash back on a computer! My only regret is not signing up sooner.

  • Hope you’re feeling better…
