 What wonderfully frugal things did you do this past week?  If you had any frugal goals, did you accomplish them?

I bought my biore nose strips and got a free cleanser with a coupon :). Also we transferred Jason's medicine prescriptions from walmart to kroger and got a $25 gift card from kroger. Another nice thing was we got three inhalers for $40 while we were paying $20 each at walmart so it's like Jason got one for free :)

My goal for the month was to stay below $300 for groceries, and (excluding pet food), I DID IT!  I spent around $280 for 5 people (2 adults, 2 teen boys, 12 yr old girl)!!!!!  I was also able to add to my stockpile.

I got twelve cans of progresso soup for 8.16, usually 2.19 each, i was super excited!

I do make homemade but progresso is perfect for a busy night

It has been quite the week for me. I bought a bread maker for $20, plus supplies to go with. I've made 4-1 lb loaves so far. I really like it.
Finally made laundry soap and fabric softener. It was wonderfully easy.

Today, I scored 36 rolls of TP for $7 at CVS! Plus 2 tubes of toothpaste for free.

I'm fixin' to figure out meal plans. The next 2 weeks are going to be tight! :) but we will be fine

Oh, and I didn't realize I have been racking up points with my debit card. We got a $25 gas card in the mail today as well!

I stayed way underbudget for groceries, everything I needed was on sale, plus I had a lot of coupons!  Target had a baby/toddler sale and I got shirts for $6 each including a yo gabba gabba shirt.  Not much more expensive then getting second hand at the thrift store.

I bought a digital camera for $20.  It's a Konica/Minolta Dimage Z2, I've seen them for as much as $500.  This one works great...it's just missing a memory card and the cord to plug it into the computer....which I already have from a broken camera!
