******I had a FRUGAL week, almost just like any other frugal week............... and I thought i would share my experiences with you............here are some of my "tips and tricks" for the frugal life of living lavishly for less!*******

  • turned off most lights and replaced as needed with longer lasting FREE lights that I have collected (ie stockpiled)
  • Mystery Shop x2 - FREE DINNERS + lunch packings (doggie bags)
  • got accepted into a HOUSE PARTY for planters (looking for a few cyber guests too let me know if you can join via skype?)
  • rec'vd 6 gifts in the mail that I used "christmas cross of deals to order for free or almost free"
  • extended my "onhand items" to lower my usual $40 week bill to eat, drink, clean and beauty supplies to reduce this weeks spendings to $32 after coupons
