Frugal Accomplishments ~ Week Ending 22 April 2018

It’s frugal accomplishments day again! Brandy’s post for the third week of April is up and there are tons of inspiring comments to peruse as well. We had a fairly quiet week, so my list is a bit short. Hope this finds everyone well!

  • Downloaded two free Kindle books and borrowed one on Kindle Unlimited
  • Received $3.42 on Ibotta ($0.42 rebate and $3 April boost bonus)
  • Collected Swagbucks and InboxDollars codes; did the SB daily survey; clicked thru several SB emails that gave me a few points just for reading them
  • Used handkerchiefs and personal cloths
  • Opened & closed windows/blinds/curtains as necessary to cool house
  • Daughter won a $15 gift card to a fast food place through a school raffle; she used it to purchase 1 meal, which leaves her enough to get another meal later
  • Bank’s text savings program: $21 in savings in one week
  • Read a Kindle book that was published this week, which I had ordered previously at a pre-release sale price
  • Kids and I used our gift certificates from a book trade-in at the local bookshop; I used mine to order print copies of some books I really enjoyed on Kindle, purchased a used book, and bought a birthday gift for a family member
  • Charged my phone in vehicles whenever possible
  • Bought some magazines at the base store, where they are 10% off the cover price; husband needed new running shoes and got them there, where he saved sales tax
  • Attended the last session of our free amateur radio class
  • Stopped for lunch afterward, but the servings are so big, all of ate for several meals off of each
  • Husband needed Shop-Vac filters – I ordered them on Amazon (Prime prepaid shipping) through Ibotta (should be 3% back)
  • We watched DVDs from the library and made sure to put the DVDs and borrowed books by the door so I can turn them in when due tomorrow, to avoid late fees
  • Used ceiling fans as necessary instead of turning on air conditioning
  • Husband is watching a TV series on Amazon Prime
  • Used wool dryer balls when using electric dryer
  • Spotted a penny on the ground and told son so he could have it for his bank

  1. Those library books!!! I paid off my fines with food right before I went to D.C. and so have a clean slate for now:)

    Looks like you had a good week.

    • Hi Marybeth! Thanks for stopping by! We are lucky our library is on the way to/from school as well. That really helps consolidate things and keep my diesel usage down. My husband is watching The Sopranos. We’ll have to take a look at Humans too. Sounds interesting. Hope you’re doing well!
