Frugal week

Stopped at Walgreens and got Hubby vitamins on sale with a coupon and picked up the pic Daughter4's daughter sent me of her in uniform (ROTC, she's 15(turns 16 in July) in her 2nd year of college that she wanted my Daddy to have for his 91 st birthday this week .Told me today she wanted to follow in her Uncle's (Son2)footsteps. I didn't want to tell her she already blowed way past him as he definitely was not in college at 15. 

Stopped at Krogers and got fuel and facial tissues as we were out completely and it counted for my 5th trip (6 trips this month and get $10 digital coupon) Tomorrow I will get bottled water for 209 and milk

April grocery budget is at $208.14 so should be under the budget of $250 with buying the milk and water tomorrow.

Opened the house and turned off furnace on warm days. Opened the  house at 209 to WARM the house as the house is so well insulated that it doesn't allow the heat of the day to warm it up that much either... good and bad on that.

Changed our big meal to lunch and went to eating either leftovers or appetizers/soups for dinner. Hubby was starting to pick back up the weight he had lost and that simple change he had started losing again.We are working hard on 209 and here during the day and pretty come to a stand still at dinner time.

Hubby watched some shows using my Amazon prime.

I have drove Hubby nuts with "is it on sale? Can we wait until it's on sale? Is that the best price we can find?" mode of everything.

I cleared an area at 209 to plant some plants even though I will have to carry water to them if it doesn't rain. I got a lot of plants including herbs for 50% off as with it pushing May most won't care to plant cool weather crops now. 

I mended a pair of jeans for Hubby, a top for Daughter2 and fixed a dress that was given to me.

We used gasbuddy to find the cheapest gas. Used Speedway fuel points that Hubby cashed in for gas and Kroger points that I got with groceries.

We have taken our drinks and a couple times our lunches to 209. If we eat out while there(mostly to get inside some where WARM) we either get the special at the local store or go to the Chinese restuarant during lunch hour which on the cheap side (can't eat at McD's at that price)

Blessed Be
