QOTW....Frugal things today......
Tue, 11-10-2009 - 12:48pm

What are some frugal things you've done in the last 4 hours?

My list---

Did a load of laundry in cold water and have it line-drying in the basement.

Fed 2 ds breakfast of fresh homemade waffles. Froze the rest of the waffles

Packed lunches for my 2 ds to take to school.

Did some cherry-picking at Walgreens and 2 grocery stores. Used some RR/catalinas to pay for some of it.

Traded coupons w/a friend.

Mowed/bagged the leaves in the yard myself. Instead of subscribing to yard waste pick-up w/out trash co., I'll be taking to them to the next town's recycle/yard waste center which is cheaper.

Planned menus for camping this weekend using what we have on hand.

Dinner for tonight is planned plus have tomorrow night's dinner prepped in the fridge in the crockpot.

Pre-ordered some dvds (Christmas gifts) from Walmart w/free shipping.

And now, I'm getting ready to go eat my lunch of homemade bean/rice burrito that was in the freezer and read my book which is borrowed from the library.

Hmmmm this will be easy seeing as I slept for 3 of those hours. :) I scanned in a rebate check from WOW. I returned the modem back in good condition so they gave me a rebate. :)
