thrifty thursday #27

  • After dropping K off at the airport (tear), I came home and worked on listings and started my free online concussion safety course for the upcoming little league season.
  • Tuesday and Wednesday were no spend days and I made a sale on Mercari each day.
  • I contacted a company that I ordered a cold brew cup from after I broke the matching straw that came with it. I inquired into how to purchase a replacement, and they offered to send me one for free! I got it in the mail a few days later. Great customer service!
  • Made a few more quarters on "any item" rebates via ibotta*, along with $0.43 at Poshmark, $1.75 at Food Lion, and there's a couple pending orders for Amazon. I made a dollar via Saving Star for the same Food Lion trip.
  • I was an actress in a Murder Mystery Dinner Theatre last week and I had a ton of fun and my meal was free since I volunteered. The food was absolutely amazing. I wasn't the murderer.
  • I had to renew my driver's license before my birthday in April but since I was eligible to renew it online, I saved a dollar.
  • I combined errands (meaning I waited a few weeks to have enough to justify driving north) and snagged lunch at the Indian buffet, picked up everything I need for an upcoming wedding, some tax paperwork, a comic book I'd ordered, got my nails done, and returned some library books before going straight to softball practice.
Frugal Fails
  • I forgot about the second toll on the way to a scrimmage so I had to pick up an IOU at the booth. A simple 70 cent toll turned into $2.25.
How about you?
