We went to an estate sale by us (a mile up the road) and bought some home essentials. I got these Swiffer Sweeper pads for a $1.00 each, plastic eggs and Epsom salt were both $2.00. Husband bought a charger for $6.00 and some oil for $1.00 each.
This is our favorite way to get some things we need. Just this past week I cleaned and organized my medicine cabinet and Epsom salt is one thing I didn't have. I thought I was out of Band-Aids but found our stash from an estate sale last year. It pays to Spring clean to know what you have and that way you don't to buy for a higher price than last year. My motto now is to make sure to look for it, you probably already have it! On the cabinet above we have a lot of hand sanitizer that was bought for a great price. I think we are good!
The first day the gas prices went up we didn't go anywhere ..we stayed home and got over the shock. Husband said no more rides (he is the head tightwad). Thank goodness the next day we had to go out for errands ha ha! We even found gas for $3.99 a gallon for cash. We filled up.
I think sometimes it doesn't pay to get all the deals. For instance, milk may be on sale over here or pickles are cheaper at this store. Now though the price of gas and time may need to be added in to the deal. I have to ask myself is it worth it.
We would walk, ride bikes, or something but there is ice on the pavement, some deep, feet grabbing mud in the yard, and more snow has just fallen here this morning. It is still winter in Michigan. I can't wait for Spring!
What are the ways you saved this past week?
