Today I'm saving pennies this way:

- no money spent at all today
- making fish patties from fresh caught fish

How are you saving pennies today?

Lets see..
I'm making lasagna that will feed us for two meals out of stuff I already have at home.

Bought some perennials at a wonderfully inexpensive Mom & Pop place $1.15 a 4 pack. These will be enjoyed for many years to come.

Went to vote on the school buget. Hopefully the changes will be made on the board to have people who think before they propose budgets that are full off things we don't need & cannot afford.

Dh and I ate the left over dinner from last night.:)

I am about to hang a load of laundry on the line.

I stocked up on peanut butter. It was .99 cents for a 500 ml. jar. It's so rare that happens around here...

So that's what I did today.:)

I ate leftovers for lunch and am going to teach 2 piano lessons after school, the money from which will go directly into savings.

Saving Pennies today here...

-Gonna hang laundry after it has finished washing
-Will eat all meals here, instead of eating out
-Supper will be tacos, the hamburger meat bought was bought at SAL, and was reduced to a low price.
-I will be cleaning house today with stuff I either made, or bought on sale, and most will be diluted.

Doing my laundry with half a cap of laundry soap. Every thing for dinner was bought on sale,including the roast. I have all the lights off and the windows open(even though it's gloomy) I used up the one piece of leftover chicken(homemade shake and bake) to make a chicken salad sandwich.

Making large chicken dinner so will have leftovers for tomorrow. It has more veggies and noodles than chicken, but good chicken flavor.

No money spent today. :D

Made lunch for Gabe so he didn't grab snacks. (well I do this usually anyway)

I saved today by:

-Using coupons at the grocery store

-Using 1/2 of what is needed for laundry

-Richard is making money by mowing the baseball fields today

-We will be eating free supper...even though it isn't the healthiest, but FREE non the less. When I work the concession at the field, we eat free. (Nachos, hotdogs, sausage wraps, brisket sandwich, snow-cones, cokes, chips, etc. All that yummy concession stand food...lol!)

I wasn't as good:( as the rest of you! I am working a split shift today, so the boys and I had Dairy Queen. HOWEVER, I used a coupon and all three of us ate for $8.85.
