Frugal Friday

Once I again I planned laundry around the weather so I did not use the dryer again this week.  Truthfully W has not hooked up the dryer since we moved into the new house.  This winter has been so mild that I have not felt the need to ask him to fix it.

We watched a movie for free from Amazon with a coupon code and shipping credits for choosing no rush rather than two day shipping.  I have found that most of the time the no rush shipping is only a day or two longer if that.  It is worth a bit of a wait to rent a movie for free.

Except for one day when the weather was bad the rabbits have had lettuce, clover, or greens from the garden areas.

At the grocery store we found several packages of our favorite chicken discounted.  We opted to buy all of the marked down packages. We had one for dinner and the rest went into the freezer for future meals.  I ended my pantry challenge just in time.

I received some magazines from free subscriptions.  I have a few magazines that I will pay to get.  Most of my magazines are from free subscriptions.

I baked hamburger buns rather than buying them at the store.

I planted some grapefruit seeds and lemon seeds.  It will take a bit longer to see any fruit this way, but both the grapefruit and lemons were gifted to us.  Any trees will be completely free.

I resisted the urge to buy a cookbook or two.  Cookbooks are definitely my weakness.  Saying "no" is a win for me!
