Frugalicious Things - Week at a Glance

Hey folks!! Just wanted to drop a quick blog about some of the frugalicious things I have been doing. It's been a busy couple of weeks, but I still managed to be frugal!! Here's a list of things. I know I probably forgot a  few, but I'm still proud of my list!!

  • Dropped off clothes in the donation bins
  • Gave away items on Freecycle
  • Combined all errands and limited driving as much as possible
  • Potlucked, especially for the holiday
  • Cooked and ate leftovers
  • Gave away lots of coupons
  • Skipped excess shopping and wore or used things we had
  • Used recyclable bags when I did shop
  • Recycled the plastic grocery bags at Kroger (they all take them)
  • Substituted ingredients and used what we had in the cupboard/frig
  • Changed the furnace filters
  • Got gas for the lowest in the city (checked Gas Buddy before filling up)
  • Skipped the bottled water and drank tap
  • Donated a huge bag of shredded paper to a cat shelter
  • Donated toiletries (I got for FREE) to a local Family Resource Center
  • Had a few $0 spending days
  • Visited our new casino and did not gamble
  • Won free tickets to a concert/festival
