Frugal Friday March 8, 2019

by - March 08, 2019

Welcome to Friday! I'm happy because I am feeling better and at three o'clock today we will be on Spring Break for a week. 

Days Worked:

This week I worked all five days, so I'm definitely happy it's Friday. I'm looking forward to having the next week off. 

The weather turned off cold on Sunday evening and I had to bring out my big winter coat. It was 27 degrees in the morning. We had to salt the stairs as they were iced over from all the rain. 

My daughter went sourcing yesterday and ended up at Ingle's where she found two great deals. 

The first one was two of these corned beef roasts. They were originally over $12, but on mark down they were $5.99, so she bought two of them and I already have them in the freezer. 

The second great deal she found was on corn tortillas. This was not in the sale flyer, but was an in-store special. These corn tortillas were only 50¢ each! 

These make other foods in your home stretch to make great meals. We use them on a regular basis. We bought twenty of them as they freeze well and we'll use them to make great frugal meals. 

She also found two pizzas on markdown at Kroger priced at $2.99 and $3.49. She made them for dinner on Thursday and we had plenty leftover for lunches today.

She was so sweet, she even packed my lunch for me today. 

Dinners This Week:

Saturday: Homemade Pizza, Salad
Sunday: Tacos with lettuce, cheese, tomato, and onion
Monday:  Taco Salad
Tuesday: Chicken & Dressing, Mixed Vegetables
Wednesday: Homemade Chili
Thursday: Pizza
Friday: Chicken & Dressing as we still have some left. 
Other Stuff:

Our garbage man quit in February, but I was already able to hire someone new to take his place. I advertised on my Facebook page (which was free) and had someone new in about five minutes. 

Since I work as a sub and know the majority of students at the high school many of them are willing to do this small job for what we're paying. 

I've been playing Scrabble online for free this week. It really helps to keep my brain active, which is good for the aging process and it's also fun to try and come up with the best words. 

That's all the news I have from here this week. Thank you all so much for your concern with me being sick. It meant a lot to me. I hope you have a great weekend.
