Frugal Living

Frugal Friday

Lots of frugal finds this week that had me saving dollars.

  1. Penzey’s Spices had a deal that you got free hot cocoa with a $5 purchase.  We needed a few things, so I took advantage of the deal.  Plus, Bill Penzey hates Trump as much as I do.  So, I am more than happy to spend my hard earned money at his store.                                                                                                                                               IMG_0551
  2. We actually took advantage of grand opening deals and prizes at a local, newly opened, gas station.  Free pizza and donuts were our prizes.  Sure, not a lot, but the pizza made for a nice lunch on Saturday.

  3. My daughter bought new tires in November.  She recently ran over something metal that required a new tire.  The manager at Tires Plus was amazing.  Instead of charging her $125 for a new tire, he offered her the road damage warranty for tires she bought in November, retroactively, for $75 instead.  He did not have to do that, but it was smart business.  We are going to give Tires Plus as much business as we can in the future.
  4. In March we will be spending the night at a hotel out of town. We needed 3 rooms for all of us. I prepaid them saving $60.
  5. I recently remembered that I have an Aveda Pure Privilege card.  I don’t buy a lot of Aveda because of the packaging, but I figured it was worth my while to check out how many points I have.  I had enough points to redeem for my favorite, way too expensive tea. Score!                                                                                                                    IMG_0553

What other great ideas are out there to save money?
