5 Things I Did That Were Frugal This Week

I guess I missed last weeks 5 things.  But it has been a busy week.  Here is what I did this week though :)

1. Sold a few more items and made $35 this week :)  I will be using this money to help finish up my Christmas shopping.

2. Found a great deal on chicken leg quarters.  I bought two family size packages.  Put one in  the crock pot, the other in the freezer.  When the one in the crock pot was done, I skinned and de-boned it.  Used half the shredded meat for White Bean Chili.  Saved the other half for another dinner.  I then put the bones and skin back in the crock pot and made chicken stock. 

3.  Made a big pot of Chicken and Rice soup with the chicken stock from above and left over rice from the frig. This went right into the freezer to be used at a later date for dinner.

4. I did not go Black Friday shopping..........enough said lol :)

5. Bought a turkey for 77 cents a pound which seems to be the cheapest around here.  Place it in our deep freeze for a later date.


  1. I am excited because pork loin is on sale tomorrow at sr for .99lb. I am planning on getting at least 15lbs to stock up!!! We have to grab the prices when they are low

    1. OH I would be excited for that price also Judy! I have not seen pork loin that cheap here in forever!

  2. I made myself promise not to do #4, as I always spend WAY more than I save by buying things for myself. This year I did pick up some pajamas and a few clothing items for the kids, but didn't go over my budget or buy anything additional. And, I was done in 10 minutes, so I consider it a victory. ;-)
