Frugal deeds for the day: Today, I went to Wal-Mart and did my grocery shopping. Even though a few items are cheaper at Aldi - it wasn't worth the drive to me. Seems gas prices jumped another 20 cents in a week. Also, my Wal-Mart giftcard was purchased with paypal $ I earned selling items we no longer wanted. So, no additional $ out of my pocket. I also gassed my husband's car up. So, I used up the Wal-Mart giftcard and a bit of the $25 VISA card I won. I still have $ on the VISA card and will use it to round out groceries next week. I did a stock-up shop today - so, we really shouldn't need much next week. The Demo lady at Wal-Mart was giving out .50 mfg coupons for 2LT Diet Pepsi - my husband has cut way back - but still drinks the stuff. I asked the lady for a few coupons and she was generous. I did get 1 free 2 LT Pepsi Next with a coupon that made it free - but the .50 coupons will go to a grocery store that doubles - and hopefully, the stuff will go on sale for $1 or less - so more free Pepsi for my husband. My husband is working on the flooring - we are making progress. Added: Shortly, I plan to make a big pot of Chili and Triffle for dessert - I have some dried out cake and scones - and plan to add a few other ingredients so that they don't go to waste.
