My Frugal Ways this Past Week 5/19/19!
This week the rain has slowed down some and we had a few nice sunny days. This picture was took when I let the cat in the porch yesterday morning just as the sun was coming up. It was a beautiful start to the day.
Here are the ways I've saved this week:
Taking care of our house windows has been our big home improvement for the year. We have replaced the glass on the top three huge front picture windows instead of getting replacement windows (seals were broke). This week we have been getting estimates on completely replacing two more windows. Both estimates came up to the same price..to the penny. We plan on getting one more estimate but so far we are amazed at the cost of labor. We might just have to learn how to install the windows our self.
We also got estimates and then replaced our well pump this week before it went completely out. Both of these are major expenses but we saved and planned for them.
After we went to the zoo and found that the grandson really liked taking pictures, we have been thinking about getting a camera for him. We were so happy when we found a great starter camera at a garage sale for $3.00. It was like new. It was the last day of their sale and they wanted rid of it. I think many people just like using their phones.
I also found some great like new t shirts and husband found a coat at other garage sales. I just love this time of year.
I went to Kroger and bought the Friday and Saturday deals. I bought 5 pounds of butter for $1.99 and used two coupons for .40 cents off they sent me in the mail. I also picked up the Free Friday deal (water), Kroger cheese, and 5 jars of Prego for .99 each.
I filled out the Kroger survey to receive more fuel bonus points.
I made low carb english muffins and cookies for the kids this morning (cookies are in the oven).
Buy and plant some flowers. Hopefully we will get to plow our garden soon.
Get back to posting my grocery deals on Saturday.
What are the ways you saved this past week?
