thrifty thursday #30

  • I've been using up some sunscreen I bought on clearance for my games. It's the lotion kind that I really rather hate, but it was cheap and I don't want to pay big bucks for aerosol spray. I did sadly forget sunscreen one Saturday, so my forearms and ears ended up burnt.
  • Made a few more sales on Mercari and Poshmark. More items out and a few more dollars for my savings. I'm very happy to still have some sales trickling in since I've been so busy with work that I haven't really listed anything much at all lately.
  • One evening after work I attended a business event with my coworkers and received a delicious dinner and a couple glasses of local wine. It was a fun evening!
  • Instead of buying a new tumbler with a straw for my desk at work, I managed to unearth my ABP cold cup I had gotten years ago. It holds 24oz, which is nice because I don't have to repeatedly fill it up.
  • I've been eating alot of meals completely comprised of leftovers. Like, slice of pizza, half an eggroll, some fries, and cherry tomatoes type of meals.

  • I had brought some Trader Joe's soup for lunch one day and then my boss brought in some salads for us, so I managed to halve the soup and salad and stretch both for a couple days' lunches.
  • Branded Surveys (formerly Mintvine) has rewarded me with another $10 for earning and redeeming points with them.
Frugal Fails
  • Still burning up gas going to games. And I haven't been price shopping, so I know I've overpaid a few times for convenience sake.
  • Eating out way too much. I've just been exhausted and it's easy.
  • Since I've been sick, I went home at noon one day at the office and was home sick the next day. While I didn't make any money, I didn't spend any either. Kind of a fail/win.
How have you saved or made money lately?
