thrifty thursday #17


  • I had an Etsy order for a destash item. One more thing out and a couple dollars in my pocket.
  • After reviewing some paranormal evidence, N and I stopped for a nice Italian dinner. It was a bit of a splurge (well not really), but we did get 10% off by checking into Yelp!
  • When we finished dinner, we walked next door to the grocery store. I picked up some frozen vegan lunches and some power grain waffles that were on deep closeout. At the register, the catalina printer spit out a coupon for a FREE pint of Halo Top ice cream. I won't eat it, so I'm going to give it to N.
  • Speaking of Yelp, our local (awesome) donut shop will give you a free donut if you check in on the app.
  • I brought home the leftover bruschetta from dinner and had it for lunch the next day.
  • I went to Aldi and picked up a bag of plums and a bag of nectarines for only $1.98 each. 
  • Made a quarter via ibotta* with the above grocery store visit.
  • I recently joined the survey site InboxDollars*, and I'm slowly chugging away at the $30 redemption mark.
  • I'm on Chipotle's text messaging list (scroll to the bottom to sign up) and I got a message a bit ago. I completed the little activity and was rewarded with a buy one get one free coupon.
  • I worked at a restaurant years ago and after I left, the manager roped me into helping with their booth at a brewfest serving food. It was pretty enjoyable and fairly easy work. Well, every now and then she'll ask if I can help with an event. Most of the time I'm working my current job but I was able to score two evenings' work at their booth at the local fair, so I'm happy to help out and earn a little pocket money at the same time. (Plus I don't have to be there until 4pm so I still get to enjoy the majority of my days off!)
  • Finished up a couple Zevia's that have been in the fridge forever, made a big batch of red quinoa I got free from work because it's date ran out, and used up a couple wrinkly tomatoes and the rest of some gazpacho for a sauce.
  • I put a ton of books I've been wanting to read on hold or my to hold later list at the local town library. They have such a selection compared to my county's smaller library.
How about you?
