- I made a quick stop into Safeway and noticed a coupon next to the cash register for 88¢ eggs. I asked the clerk if eggs were on sale, and she answered that neighborhood customers had received the coupon in the mail. I commented that I lived in the neighborhood, (which I do) and she told me to go grab some eggs. I was able to buy two dozen and am now set for the next couple of weeks.
- I drove across town to pick up my sister from her friend’s house, and we stopped in at our father’s house afterwards. He’d just baked bread and sent us home with a fresh loaf.
- My visiting niece was feeling poorly all day, but had perked up by the evening. I asked her if she wanted to leave the house for some fresh air and she readily agreed. I took her to a big local park (Mt. Tabor) where I let her use my phone to hunt for Pokémon. We had a lovely time without spending a penny.
- I turned in another Clark Howard article, I put together three Craigslist listings, I signed up for September hospital shifts, I watered plants using my family’s abandoned water bottles and I used a free car wash coupon for my bigger car, making sure to drive through with a full passenger load for full entertainment value. “Release the kraken!”
- I didn’t buy a Lear Jet.
Now your turn. What frugal things have you been up to?
