I'm saving these pennies today:

- making my jam with rhubarb from the garden, strawberries I had froze last year and sugar I got on sale. Jam here is very expensive and both dh and ds#1 use it lots.

- purchasing eggs from a local farmer, saving me 75¢ for each doz. rather than purchasing them at the store

Who is next?

I am making dinner with ingredients I got for free, shepards pie.
Going to Eckerds to stock up , they are doubling to 1.00 so I plan on buying as much as I can for free.
Going to make a loaf of bread and cookies rather than buy buying.

I had to order groceries online but even though I couldn't use any coupons I did save around $10.00 off my order:) .
One of my skirts that I ordered is out out of stock as well so the company emailed me & deducted the amount off my total so I am saving $$ there too:( (I really wanted that skirt lol}.

Hi Ladies!:wave:
Today I have done 2 loads of laundry in cold water and have them hanging out on the line (including a load of sheets).
:cool: I weeded the vegi garden and one of my sons weeded one of the flower beds. We also planted our beans and our second crop of lettuce. We have some strawberries that should be ready to pick this afternoon (Yummy). I alerted my friends to the Kraft deal online so that they could save $$$ too! Tonight we're going to grill dinner on DH's new BBQ grill (Father's Day present) so I need to marinate some potatoes to grill!

Hmmm, I don't know how I saved money today except for the fact that we have dental insurance. Dakota had a dental visit. The insurance helped save money.

I washed our sheets in cold water with half the amount of soap needed(sams brand) and then hung them on the dryer rack(yep they fit lol,can't hang outside cause of dd's asthma)Washed one load of dishes in the dish washer on light cycle and air dryed(saved 30 min of it running)Kept air on 78 degrees with the fans running( its only ran once and its hot and muggy outside).Made my lists for this week and cut my grocery budget by half of what it was for the next 8 weeks.( It was $50 a week so now its $25)


Pretty thrifty day compared to last Wed.cause both dh and i got new vehicles!So new car payments(2 of em)
