I already follow Brandi at The Prudent Homemaker and her weekly frugal post. So I will be joining her in posting at the beginning of the week. I hope you will share with me some of your tips and thoughts each week.
My fails this week:
This week I made bread, but over cooked it. Ended up tossing one loaf and making croutons with the other loaf.
I was also suffering very badly from allergies, so we ended up eating out for 3 meals that I had not planned on.

I got two bottles shaving cream for my husband at CVS for $1.49 total.
I ordered from Bountiful Baskets this week, and managed to make it to volunteer, this got me two extra bell peppers. This weeks basket was full of things we eat and now I don't have to buy at higher grocer store prices. I also got a few things I'll be gifted to a friend.
I cashed out for a $5 amazon card on my swagbucks account.
I sent in a bag of cheese packaging and a bag of babyfood pouches off to Terracycle, this really isn't "frugal" but by sending in what would otherwise be trash I can make donations to charities of my choice, and these two packages put me over the $10 donation minimum.
Made it to Costco and bought several things of salsa, they have the best pricing on the salsa we like.
Also got butter, and canned dog food. My poor dog has no more teeth she is now on a soft food diet.
I also hit $20 on my Checkout51 and cashed it out.
Collect water from my sink when heating up water, use this to water trees and garden.
Downloaded some new books on my Nook.
Watch free tv shows using my Amazon Prime acct.
I also made several felt quiet pages, I used felt I had bought for other projects, and Timmy is not the only loving these, Middlest is getting into playing with her, finally something they enjoy together.
