Recent frugal efforts.
I made some apple cinnamon oatmeal cookies to use up some oatmeal before it turned bad.
I got a 5 quart programmable slow cooker for $2.xx after rebate.
I took the survey on the Fred Meyer receipt for free fuel points.
I turned in my summer reading chart and got a $5 coupon to put towards fines and a coupon for a free used book from one of their book sales.
I read free books from the library.
My husband purchased some used tools from my coworker at a steep discount. This helped her out because she needed the money, and it helped him out because it was some things he's been wanting, and now he won't have to spend a lot of money down the line to obtain them because he has very particular tastes for some things.
I redeemed an Amazon gift card from Bing (now Microsoft Rewards) to put towards my son's new "comfy socks."
It's time to put the AC away, and the nights have been cold. I'm hoping the insulated curtains I got for the bedroom awhile ago (at a discount in exchange for a review) will keep it from getting too cold at night. So far I've noticed a difference, but it's really tempting to turn on the heat, which is stupid expensive.
I ordered 120 colored pencils at a big discount for part of my mom's Christmas present. After all these years she mentions that she used to color, and when she realized all the new adult coloring books that are out now she added a lot of coloring supplies to her Amazon wish list. :)
My husband gave his coworker our son's old Halloween costume for her little boy.
A coworker brought in some Italian plums so I took some to my mother in law as a special treat.
What have you done to save money recently?
