This past week, my frugal adventures were:
• I took advantage of the wonderful November grocery sales at Kroger and used the opportunity to stock up several items in our pantry and freezer, in order to see us through the year, until next November.
• I used coupons in a booklet I was given at Petsmart (because we adopted our cat from the local shelter) to receive free cat and dog foods. I simply presented the adoption paperwork and the little flyer I was given at the shelter to the cashier, and she handed me the coupon booklet with many "freebie" coupons, and several money saving coupons, on a variety of pet supplies! I still have some coupons for free items that I will use next time.
• I washed and dried a sheet of foil that was only used to cover a cake in a 9x13" pan. I also continued my habit of washing, drying and saving zipper style bags. If they are easy enough to wash quickly, and haven't stored greasy items or raw meats, they are fair game to be reused, in my opinion!
• used a coupon for a free container of cat litter, saving us $7.99!
• a $40 fee was waived for us on a service that we needed to have performed! (Businesses have been lenient on certain things in this area since hurricane Harvey's flood waters devastated so many lives here.)
I hope this offers encouragement to you if you are attempting to save money for things you may need or want or just trying to spend less!
