Frugal Accomplishments

Frugal Happenings

1. Kroger deals

Kroger had a great deal on Kool-Aid Jammers (69 cents each….I got 10!) and I found that our favorite brand of yogurt was marked down to half off due to the cardboard packaging being damaged, so I happily scooped up all three packs.

2. Dollar Tree

To make our week go a little smoother, I sometimes resort to bribery:)  Every Friday, if my son has behaved well and not complained too much during homeschool, he is allowed to pick out a prize from our goodie box.  I have found the Dollar Tree (or the Target dollar aisle) is the best place to find fun little bribes rewards for cheap.  This time around, I let my son pick out a few things to add to the box and he has been eagerly waiting all week to pick out his prize.  **His favorite prizes so far have been fake mustaches, candy, gum, silly putty, and magic towels.

3. Plane Tickets

We are taking a trip later this year to Denver and I know from experience that flights get more expensive the closer you get to your departure, so I jumped online and found the cheapest ones available (cheap is a relative term)

4. “New” Dresser

As you may know, I have been trying to not buy any new items this year, so I was pleased when my mother offered to let my son have an old dresser that she decided to replace.  We had been hanging up the majority my son’s clothes and keeping folded items in little baskets in his room, but now that he is getting bigger, the basket system was not working as well.  So this was a nice frugal surprise:)
