frugal friday - february

The year is flying by! Somehow my Frugal Friday post for January got deleted, so here's starting the year with February. 😑
  • Grocery deals: $1.49 blackberries, $2.99 strawberries, $1.44 markdown spring mix, free bag of Cheetos, $3.99 Freschetta pizza, $1.99 bag of Thomas bagels (into the freezer), $1.49 two liter of root beer, 99¢ tube of Colgate toothpaste, $3.99 bag of Totino's pizza rolls, $1.88 markdown bag of butter lettuce, 2 red peppers for 99¢
  • I redeemed a free ebook from Amazon First Reads 
  • After months of searching, I finally thrifted a push-lever salad spinner for $10!
  • While I did order delivery food, I stayed in to watch the Super Bowl via Paramount+'s free trial week
  • Over a four-day weekend, I only ordered one meal for delivery
  • I picked up a second job that's part time. I really like seeing the number in my high interest savings account go up.
I'm still decluttering!
  • A book on Pango - sold and mailed using recycled mailing supplies
  • I unsubscribed from a bunch of email lists
  • A slow feeder that was just a little too deep for Og, a Clarisonic facial brush - sold on Facebook Marketplace
  • My old hair dryer that I had upgraded, four Yeti stickers - given away on Facebook
  • The table and six chairs I borrowed for Friendsgiving - passed back to my dad when we met for lunch one weekend
  • The 12 belly bands from when I had my two late elderly dogs - mailed to a senior dog sanctuary
I've done really well with food waste lately, so hopefully I can keep it up into February
  • I used up a bunch of leftovers from work - cheesy mac, some delicious soup, salad toppings
Frugal Fails:
  • Ogden has now chewed through four phone cases since the beginning of December, I'm on number 5 now
