What I Did This Week to Save Money 7/14

It was a short week for us after coming home from vacation mid-week, but we did make some money-saving moves with the days we had available.

  1. We came home to potted spinach plants gone wild!  I got out and planted some new seeds.  Spinach grows quickly and you can always find a use for it.

  2. Our electric bill was over 100.00 below what we had saved in our budget.  You know I am devoted to the time-of-use rate program!  We put the excess money into savings.
  3. Took advantage of a double-coupon day to stock up on items for this week’s meal plan and also food for our upcoming block party.
  4. Had a quick budget review with my husband.  We agreed to start saving a little bit each week towards Christmas expenses.
  5. Cleaned the front-loading washing machine in an effort to keep it in good condition.
  6. My husband found that our car dealer takes oil change coupons from any competitor.  We had a $ 10.00 off coupon from another business and used that with no problem.

Hope your weekend was a good one.  See you tomorrow for Meal Plan Monday!

      Hi Pennywise – I located two comments from you in my SPAM comment folder for some unknown reason. I will check there more often. Just wanted to let you know I do appreciate your comments. Hopefully my WordPress can be trained to put you in the right file! 🙂

    I posted a comment under this post a couple of days ago. I hope you have received it as it is not showing… anyway, I just wanted to say it’s great when you get to save on a regular basis, every little helps 😉

      I am glad you mentioned this because I found the original comment in the SPAM comment folder, where I have not been checking regularly. And yes, here’s to saving bit by bit!
