FIVE FRUGAL THINGS Tuesday Morning Edition

  1. I spent $76 on groceries last week and am working to make that last through most of the month with a mix of pantry staples.  I made chicken and green beans for lunch for the rest of the week and will probably be making pork and then pork fried rice and another crockpot of mexican chicken.
  2. Instead of going out so much I have been taking time to train my dog at home.  He has almost mastered watch me, touch, puppy pushups and have mastered sit, down, up, off, gimmepaw/businessdeals.  We also have been going on longer walks.
  3. Swagbucks is having a Team Challenge this week and my team is in second place!  All the more reason to stay in and not go out this week.  I’ve got about $50 in Amazon giftcards sitting waiting for when I need them!
  4. FALL IS COMING THE WEATHER IS SO COOL!  I don’t pay the utilities but for the last few days I have been able to leave Wally with just a fan and a window open instead of running the A/C.  And I haven’t had to use my A/C at night so we’re saving our appliances and electric bills!
  5. Biking to work saves me $4.50/day.  $22.50 per week!  $1,125 per year!!  Of course I can’t bike every day but I don’t need to buy the expensive SEPTA passes because I get by on my feet, bike, and SEPTA tokens.
