THRIFTY THURSDAY  

Posted by: Julie in , ,


I guess (if you are still around reading) you've seen my lack of posting on my frugal purchases. Why the lack of posts? Well, I've just not been buying anything. Can you get any more thrifty than that? LOL!

Our Ice company has hit a lull since we've been having cool, wet weather and, of course, that affects our finances. We've also had to pay out some VERY unexpected bills. One was replacing the windshield of our ice truck after kids threw a rock through it and Two was replacing a tire that blew out on the ice truck when DH was delivering ice this week.

We've just been eating out of the pantry for a while. I did go to CVS earlier this week and I got 1 pack of Huggies diapers, 1 pack of Plushies wipes and 1 CVS version of Tylenol. I paid $4.60 OOP and got back $3.99 for the medicine. I hope to get a few more items from CVS to build up to the $25 so I can get the ECB's.

My daughters need shoes for my sisters wedding that is coming up in May. I had my nearly 5 yr old with me today and we popped in Target and found a deal. The cutest white, Mary-Jane shoes with pretty little flowers across the strap for $4.49!!!! They were just her size and she loved them. We grabbed those bad boys in a hurry ;-)

Later I made a Walmart run to pick up sodas, syrup, cinnamon danish, and butter. I spent under $8.00 OOP.

We're hosting a Ben 10 party this Sunday and even those snack foods will come from the pantry. We're going to have pizza rolls, popcorn, and homemade chocolate chip cookies. Crazy combo, but the kids just want snacks and this is what my son requested.

It's been so nice knowing that we had everything we needed already at home and I didn't have to burden my DH with asking him for grocery money while things are tight.
