I have been working a little harder at Kroger eCouponing (is that a thing?) but it's difficult because I have to "clip" the coupons on my phone, then write all of those coupons down, and then match my coupon list (with expiration dates) to sales. This week I saved $0.70 with eCoupons, and got two free items with additional eCoupons. These coupons were for vegetables, cream cheese, salsa, and a sugar-free/grain-free snack bar. Coupons are not just for junk food!
Note: I uploaded my videos without music this week. Sorry about the furnace going in the background!
2. Sold two bars of soap and seven dozen eggs. My husband actually sold most of this to HIS customers! I think he is a better salesman than I am. :) It is so nice to have some hobby farm income again.
3. Made yogurt. I also used my discount ham to make ham broth for future meals. It was really easy to do- I just put the ham bone, some chicken feet, water and apple cider vinegar in the Instant Pot and let it do its thing.
4. FREE LIMES! My mom brought over three bags of limes to share with me. Over the weekend we had two potlucks, so I used some of the limes to make key lime pie. I am looking forward to finding uses for other two+ bags. What is your favorite way to use limes?
5. Scavenged a graham cracker crust. I was going to buy graham crackers, or a pre-made graham cracker crust for my key lime pie, but instead I used the crust from a boxed cheesecake mix that I had.
6. Collected cans. I have been trying to walk at least a mile every day for health reasons. This has been pretty profitable in terms of cans. If I vary my route, I can get at least two or three cans (worth $0.10 each). One day I walked two miles and came home with at least $1.00 worth! It doesn't sound like a lot, but 3 cans x 5 days = $1.50 per week. I think most weeks I can get more than that, especially if mix things up with a 3-4 mile bike ride here and there.
7. Modified a piece of clothing to make it last longer.
8. Watched a show on Netflix. For the past few weeks we have been watching "The Great British Bake Show". The first season was excellent! The show is very clean, educational, but still fun to watch because of the competitive nature. The second season has been less interesting (I feel like they were not as picky about their contestants), but still fun to watch.
I think that is about it for the week! What were some of your frugal accomplishments?
