frugal friday


  • I cleaned out a purse and found a bunch of (unexpired) Cholula packets and salt packets. You bet I used them up.
  • Several more items were sold online so I got them shipped out.
  • As shown above, I soaked some cucumbers in salt and vinegar and dehydrated them to make chips.
  • I joined a local city's library (other than my home county) on a digital basis, so I have access to all of their ebooks and audiobooks. I managed to get a copy of The Ballad of Songbirds and Snakes by Suzanne Collins for free versus Amazon's $17.99 Kindle price tag.
  • Decluttering has been at the top of my to-do list the last month or so and I've gotten a lot of things out of here that I just didn't need. My potting bench (really a baker's rack) had just become a dumping ground for clutter, so I sold it and some extra flower pots I didn't love on Facebook Marketplace. A lot of other odds and ends I've been giving away in a local free Facebook group.
  • For Christmas, I had requested dishwasher pods as a gift and my mom took that notion and ran with it - she gave me dishwasher pods, some all-natural laundry detergent she had tried and enjoyed, rubber spatulas (I use these all the time) and I am super grateful for every item because life is expensive! She did give me some fun stuff, too - a DIY stamp kit, some jimjams, some great slippers, and more!
  • Unfortunately last year my grandparents lost both of their elderly dogs. They passed on their canned dog food to me for the boys. It's helped me pad out their food, but I'm just sad for the reason.
  • I watched Doctor Who through the end of 11 and then promptly canceled my HBO Max subscription, but my boyfriend gave me his login, so score! I exchanged my Hulu login with him.
