My Frugal Ways this Past Week 12/20/15




We took the grandkids to see Santa at a local restaurant- they received a free breakfast. Granddaughter didn't like this Santa any better than the last one!   Then we went on to Barnes and Noble for a Free Christmas Story hour

Accepted some wonderful Mulberries from a friend -I have used them in yogurt and my oatmeal this week.

Kroger was my go to store this week (although we also went to Aldi's) -Bought diapers for free with a digital coupon and also made sure to pick up my Free Friday download.   I bought my gift cards there for 2x the fuel rewards and also made sure to do the survey at the bottom of the receipt.  We bought a large roast in the marked down section for $3.13 that we used in both steak and cheese sandwiches and stew.

I made all our meals at home (daughter paid for my breakfast).

I made Christmas fudge (Miss Eisenhower's Million Dollar Fudge). Although it seems like a lot to spend for ingredients it actually saves a lot of money.  I would have spent a fortune to buy this much fudge!  It's never ending but it gives me enough to give to others plus our household for Christmas.  I like this recipe because it's easy and you don't need a candy thermometer. It has never failed for me.

I hope you have a Merry Christmas!
