We have had a two day reprieve from the rain and it feels so good to see the sun shine. Today husband will mow the lawn for the first time this year. Only the front yard though because the back yard is too wet. Someday we will dry out but not any time soon according to the forecast, the rain starts back tomorrow.

I found money! Okay, I admit it was my own but still it was a windfall. When we go on a trip I use my camera bag as a wallet and stick extra money in it when we leave the car. I thought to look in it this past week and found $71 dollars! Yeah!
I had 10 cents off per gallon Kroger rewards, so husband went to fill up the gas tank there this past week. The man in front of him was filling up his gas cans plus his car and told him he was sorry it was taking so long. Husband said no problem, you take your time. After he was done he came back to our car and asked if husband wanted a $1.00 off per gallon that he had on his card from the previous month that was ready to expire. That nice act saved $16.00 on filling up our car. Husband gave the man back $5.00 and told him to buy himself some coffee. Gas money saved from a very nice man $11.00!
Received a bill from AARP to renew and I remembered seeing a deal on their website. I ended up saving $7.00 for a two year subscription.
Sold an item on Facebook.
I went to the Dollar General's clearance sale and bought some great deals. I also only spent $50.00 in groceries this past week.
We had the glass in our 3 top front picture windows replaced. We have six windows there and each one had their seals broken. This saved us over 50% or more of having new windows installed. We will replace the bottom three next year.
Went to many garage sales and found tools, clothes for grandchildren and me, brand new cookie sheet pans, new twin size sheet, winter boots for grandson, winter coat for granddaughter, plus more. We also went to the M15- 60 mile long garage sale but it was so busy you couldn't find a deal. We decided to skip this one next year unless it was on Friday.
Granddaughter found a princess dress, shoes, and dolls. She loves Fridays and can't wait to come to our house to go to the sales. I love this princess stage!
Goals for this next week:
Clean and organize the pantry and the canning shelves.
