I did take Helena's outgrown clothes to the second-hand store

God grant me the serenity to change the things I can, to accept the things I cannot change, and the wisdom to know the difference.

We were thinking of going to the movie theater this evening, but this has been a tiring sort of week, so we decided to stay in and watch movies at home! That's at least a $20+ savings for us--and mainly time spent at home just resting and relaxing which we really need.

Stopping to rethink if I really needed an item of clothing--even when it was on clearance! Clearance or not-decided it wasn't needed and back on the rack it went!

Thought about going shopping after work yesterday, but had to remind myself, do I really need anything??? The answer was "no"--so no $ spent on things I may not even have needed.

Trying to concentrate on using the foods already in the pantry and freezer--instead of going shopping and purchasing more than what we need or what we already have!

Was thinking of going shopping at our local thrift shops yesterday, but then I rethought it all--realizing I need to get rid of alot of things and simplify life, rather than add, so decided best not to go and get tempted by what I may see or think I would want.

I fixed my tv. We got rid of cable last month. But couldn't get all the channels available on the antenna because our tv had a lock code on it. ( It was used when we bought it and didn't get the code) So I did a google search and found a video on youtube. My tv is now unlocked and I changed the code. We get more channels now. And I didn't have to call a technician to come out and do it.

I got some ground chicken for 50% off at TOPS. I used it to make taco salad and it was so good!

Dropped into a thrift store and found a soft, fluffy sweater marked down from $7.50 to $2.00. I wear such sweaters instead of pajamas. Warm and they look okay to take out the garbage.

An even bigger find: a couch in a rare color I've seen for much more expensive, a color I've been longing for. This one was only $50! I figured it was an omen.

I wish we had an Aldi's in our City--definitely a good way to save the $!!! But I saved the $ by not going shopping yesterday nor will today. It's too easy to see or buy things that I really don't need when you get down to it.

I shopped at Aldi yesterday instead of Walmart and actually saved money. I don't have a car, and the bus goes right to WalMart, but it stops 3 blocks away from Aldi. Plus, Aldi opens at 9 a.m., and during the summer here, it's usually extremely hot by then. With my lupus, I have had to shop at WalMart for the summer because I can go really early, but now that it's getting cooler, I can go back to Aldi.

Where I was spending my entire $50 a week budget at WalMart, and more, I got more food for only $44 yesterday. Aldi has sales, where WalMart doesn't. Produce is much cheaper at Aldi, as are things I never bought at WalMart, because they cost too much, like nuts. Greek yogurt at Aldi is 53 cents, while it's 88 cents at WalMart.

I was so thrilled when we got an Aldi here!

I have totally stopped buying coffee in stores. I walk daily and would go to the local conveience store after for a cup of coffee, daily, at 1.58 each, that added up, 7 bucks a week at least.
So, I have eliminated that and now I have my coffee at home before and or/after walking.
That is one small expense I have eliminated.
And since I just recently started trying to repay a student loan, TRY being the word to focus on here. Every penny found on the sidewalk counts!

I talked myself out of buying a pair of pants on sale. Later, I found in my closet that I had a pair almost exactly like them that I had gotten for FREE at a clothing swap weeks ago before I went on a vacation. I hadn't worn them yet and had forgotten I had them!

Today, I was going to go to the store, but decided to do without and use what I have in the house, so saved time and money there. I try to have as many "no spend" days as I can.

Yesterday, I went to a dental clinic for work instead of a regular dentist. They were so nice, and it cost me 1/4 of what it would have cost at the dentist.

We just got a new Aldi store here in town only 1.2 miles from my house, so I can walk there pretty easily. Nice, since I don't have a car. The bus also goes right to it as well. Beautiful day today, in the 60s, so I walked to the store and bought produce and other things for my diet. Not only did I walk out with what would have been $50 easy at Publix (the only other place to shop closeby before Aldi and Super Walmart opened) for around $29, but I got 2.5 miles of walking exercise in.

With the cold temps we're having, we were going to buy an electric heater to warm my home office when I'm home. When I'm not home, we'll just close the door and keep the heat in the main living area. BUT, kept thinking we bought one during the Summer at a super low price and, sure enough, in the basement I go and, sure enough! A brand new one still in the box. My find saved me quite a bit and it'll be perfect for what I'm looking for!

Last night's meal was all from the pantry and existing veggies.
I wanted jalapeńo, didn't have it, used red pepper flakes and the dish was fine. After a lime spritz to add the fresh note to the sauce.

I'm making verde sauce for enchiladas this weekend from frozen Hatch peppers. I have some sad spinach I tossed in the freezer for the filling. A bit of cashew ricotta will finish it up. All ingredients are in the house.

I live in a situation where staples are easy but fresh veg and fruit has to be bought a couple times a week.

I'm vegan. For this week's protein sources I bought dehydrated fake meats from the local Vietnamese market (you reconstitute them in water before cooking) and a 6-pack of tofu.

I saved almost $5 by buying the tofu as a multi-pack, and several dollars per bag on the dehydrated fake meats (vs buying the refrigerated or frozen options.)

We met with friends yesterday for lunch and my hubby and I actually split our entree. The portions are rather large at this restaurant and both of us aren't really big lunch eaters, so he ordered the steak that he likes and I enjoyed the salad and roll that comes with it that is served on another plate, so we both ate for the price of one plus we were able to eat the food that we wanted without having it go to waste.

I checked out the marked down jewelry items at the department store where I work and found rather pricey jewelry that was drastically marked down already, applied my employee discount and, as a result, have a few gifts ready for the Christmas gift-giving season!

If we see a garage sale sign emoticon we are definitely going to stop and we did yesterday! WOW!! My son's girlfriend collects Coca Cola items--and I hit the jackpot for her! I was able to buy brand new items for her for a few dollars! Her birthday is coming up and I think I'm going to add a few of the things to her gift -- she'll love it and I saved a few extra dollars at the same time!

emoticon the office where I used to work at also brought in doughnuts every Wednesday---and eventually we found that people weren't eating them as much, so we changed it over to someone bringing in another sort of snack for the office--and, most of the time, alot healthier choices!

It's time to organize the freezer and fridge a bit today and start my grocery list for items that I need -- and then onto the local grocery store ads and see how many of the "needs" are on sale and which items I can put off until they are on sale!

My office provides free fruit to us on Tuesday and I always take advantage of it.

I DO NOT take advantage of Donut Fridays, though. It's not a bargain if it's unhealthy for me.

Let's walk!

I washed and waxed my car yesterday: it looks nicer, it helps to maintain the value of the exterior, it's cheaper than paying someone to do it for me, and it was a bit of exercise for me.

Let's walk!

emoticon idea! Today I'm saving money by NOT leaving home! It's amazing sometimes how many stops a person can make to pick up this or that, or even stop and shop for pleasure--but the purse is staying home today!

We ate out, taking advantage of a lunchtime special, rather than paying more for the same meal for dinner.

While out and about going to appointments, I saw a garage sale, stopped and shopped! I bought a super huge bag of used sheets, and other linens, for $1.00 that I'm going to cut up in strips and use for the wagon wheel rug that I'm working on with my parents!

Planned my travel route today--every mile saved is more than a penny earned these days with the prices of gas!

I took some vanilla ice cream that was beginning to frost up...gave the frosted to our dog and used the rest with the pineapple mango juice to make a smoothie

Colored my own hair -- I like the way it looks and I save time and money by not going to a salon.

I cut my own hair today -- not too bad of a job! Plus, I just saved $60 or so by not having to go to a salon!

I prepared extra food to cook on the grill when we barbecued on Sunday -- it made quick, inexpensive lunches and dinner this week.

Instead of filling up the gas tank which is normally around $55. I put in just $15 which is the cash I had on hand and will be enough gas to get me to/from work for the rest of the week.

Helped others save today. Picked up free groceries for two disabled people so they would have more resources for other expenses.
