My Frugal Ways this Past week,What Was On the Dinner Table and My Goals for the Week 10/30/16!

We picked up a couple dozen Blue Ball Canning Jars someone had put out to the curb.   So pretty!

I was kind of disappointed that I didn't get to Swagbucks as much as I wanted.   On Saturday though I searched and earned 99 swagbucks!   Yeah!

I realized that we were not going to have a date night that I planned when I came down with a cold.   I looked on the Groupon I bought for a moonlit hayride (sigh) and realized I could still use it at their farm store for the amount I paid for it.  

I took the Kroger survey for more fuel points.

I started catching up on my Recyclebank reward points.  It has been a long time since I've done that.   It's great to get free magazines with the points.
