My Frugal Ways this Past Week 2/14/16

My Frugal Ways this Past Week 2/14/16-Vickie's Kitchen and Garden

This was the only picture I took this week.  It's my beautiful granddaughter in the outfit that I crochet for her when she was born.   It was supposed to be the size of a newborn but she is just now getting into it.  Either the pattern was wrong or I crochet extremely large!

Here are the ways I've saved this week:

Was able to get my Sunday paper for free after Walgreens rewards

Downloaded a coupon from Meijer pharmacy rewards that will save us .50 a gallon of gas. I'm not sure where you live but here gas can go up and down here drastically within just a few hours minutes.  We decided to use this when we saw that gas was $1.29.  We went home for a couple of hours and come back with the car that needed it most and it had jumped to $1.59 at that gas station.  We decided to save the coupon and went down the street to the gas station that hadn't jumped up yet.

Washed my ziploc bags

We ended up saving $400 a year on car and home insurance by going with another company.

I accepted my daughter's modem and that will save us $10 a month on our cable bill.

After watching many youtube videos and following directions completely, we realized that our dishwasher was finally a goner.  We knew this would be happening eventually and were prepared for it (well the best you can be).  We went shopping last night and by comparison shopping we were able to save $50.  All it took was to go across the street to the next store.

What ways did you save last week?
