My Frugal Ways this Past Week and the Menu Plan for 5/27/18!

Here are the ways I've saved this past week:



Hung clothes on the line when it was hot and sunny (this is a recycled picture).   It helped to keep the house cool and it seemed like they were dry in an instant.

My heart skipped a beat when the washing machine wouldn't turn on a couple of days ago.  My husband put on a new plug and we were back in the laundry business.  Total cost was $5.00 for a good plug. 


I stocked up on many of the Memorial day grocery deals. Hamburger, watermelon $1.99, Buns $1.00 (with my coupon there were 80 cents), Kroger Pop 4 for $9, and strawberries (99 cents a quart). 

We received had 30 cents off a gallon a gas after shopping at Kroger and filled up both vehicles.  

I also recieved a survey from Kroger for fuel points.

Fixed a window screen.




Used grass clippings to mulch what we have planted so far in  the garden.

Enter the county fair online and saved 1/2 of the cost of entering ($5.00).   

I was able to buy another Walmart gift card through Swagbucks for Christmas.  

Menu Plan:


Monday              Picnic and parade to honor the veterans  (hot dogs and hamburgers)

Tuesday              Leftover picnic

Wednesday         Grilled chicken salads made with leaf lettuce from the garden

Thursday            Hamburger helper, mashed potatoes, and green beans.

Friday                 Smoked pork chops and a salad

Saturday              Out to eat

Sunday                      Roast w/fixings if it's cooler or we will figure something else out.


I'm so thankful for our active and retired military for keeping us safe.  I hope you have a great Memorial Day.

What are the ways you've saved this past week?
