thrifty thursday #19


  • I completed a silly survey on my Dollar General receipt and got a coupon for $3 off my next $15 purchase. When I used that coupon on essentials, I got another survey offer.
  • I sold two items on Mercari, one on Poshmark, and an item to a friend - I'm really downsizing and it's nice to make a bit of cash at the same time. I'm going to use recycled shipping supplies to send out the packages.
  • Grocery shopping hasn't happened much around here, so I've been eating from the pantry like a madwoman. I just really want a fresh salad.
  • My mom gave N and me two tickets for a local movie theatre, so we used them to go see mother! and even though the movie was weird, we didn't pay a dime!

  • I was perusing Cartwheel and noticed there was a 50% offer for the complete series of The King of Queens*, which is my favorite show ever, so I checked it out in store. The series used to be $150, but has since gone down to $49.99, so I snapped it up for a cool $24 and change. It's on sale online right now for only $37.99!
  • I earned a quarter back from ibotta* and submitted receipts to ReceiptHog.
  • The omnivore of the house never eats leftovers but puts them in the fridge. I loathe food waste, so I eat these leftovers even though they may have dairy in them. The dollar vote has been cast already, though not by me, so at least there's no waste. Sigh.
  • I help coach a softball team and before practice I filled up some empty water bottles that were around the kitchen to give them a couple more uses before I recycle them.

Frugal Fails:
  • I hit a curb one night and ruined one of my expensive tires on the car. I was so upset since I'd just gotten the tires in June, but $93 later I no longer have a donut on my car.
  • Ordered takeout at work two days when I forgot lunch. I need to get on this meal prepping wagon.
