We stopped at a estate sale while on a ride one day and most of it was just marked too high.  When it's like that I mostly look for little stuff.   I managed to find a box of sewing notions plus an unopened big box of Meijer's Plastic Wrap for a $1.00 a piece.    




Stopped at our local libraries book sale and I got these books for $2.00.  I love old cookbooks and christian romance novels.



I have to show this again.  An old coupon was in the Pie book.  Just for 5 cents off a Betty Crocker Dessert Mix!  

We haven't went to our local VG's grocery store in awhile but when they had a buy 2 get 3 free sale for bacon we decided to go. That made it $2.00 a package so we bought 10 to stock up.  The price of bacon has skyrocketed it seems.

I completed the surveys for both Kroger and VG's.

We walked to the lake one beautiful day-free exercise.  Since then it has been cold and rainy.  We will have to start walking again in the mall or the church's walking track soon.  I love the mall because you actually get to meet and greet people.  We are known as the slow walkers I'm sure!  

We went to Greenfield village on $5.00 day yesterday.  We saved $81.00 on admission for 5 people!  It really does cost that much unless you have a deal.

I have been doing surveys on AARP's rewards for good this past week.  I'm still exploring so I have just mostly been entering the sweepstakes they have with my points.  Apparently they have a special deal everyday at 3 p.m. The last one was for a Starbucks $5.00 gift card for 500 points.  I'll try to remember to look at it today.  

My Goals for this Week:

It's going to be a busy week so I'll just try and clean out the refrigerator (I have gotten behind with this task).

What ways have you saved this past week?
