thrifty thursday #20


  • Our boss gave N and I a bag of fresh garden tomatoes from their family. They're delicious and I'm so glad they thought of us!
  • The local Shell has started taking Shell Rewards* cards, so it's a bit easier to get cheaper gas while home. I save 5 cents per gallon because I have Gold Status.
  • Noodles & Company emailed me a bit ago has now started a nifty little program for rewards (try my code KatelynCar669)* and I signed up. We went yesterday and I earned enough points for a free side, salad, soup, or mac!
  • I ordered a couple things from e.l.f. when they offered free shipping one day. I saved $4.95 on shipping and have their Moisturizing Foundation Stick and their All Over Cover Stick on their way to me to try! If you haven't joined their Beauty Squad yet, head on over and join* with this $5 coupon!
  • Another item sold on Mercari as well as another on Poshmark.
  • While out in Tennessee, I scored some Shopkick* points, 606 Fetch points, and made $0.50 via ibotta*.
  • Via the Panel App*, I cashed out my points for a $5 Amazon giftcard.
  • On the trip home from TN, we filled up our Nalgene and Sip by Swell* bottles with water and two ceramic coffee mugs with fresh coffee. Not a penny was spent on road drinks! In fact, the only money spent to come home was $1.75 on a vending machine bag of chips to keep me awake and alert.
  • I had gotten out of the habit of refilling my Nalgene* bottle, but I've recently started carrying it again and while I did stop at Wawa for dinner after coaching a softball game, I saved the plastic and money of not buying a bottle of water since I knew I had some in the car. I even carry it onto the ball field when I coach and umpire instead of getting a bottle of water at the concession stand.
  • We had a bunch of leftovers from dinner at my mom's, so N and I brought a bunch of them to work today. We both got fried squash mix, I got the salad, and she got the Tofurky chick'n. Win!
  • N asked if I wanted any Chinese food today for delivery and since I still had squash, I said no. Win!
Frugal Fails
  • I returned some library books late and that resulted in some fees. Still cheaper than buying the books and the fees help the library.
How have you done lately?
