It’s been semi-easy not to spend too much money in the last 2-3 weeks (except for all the steady bills) due to me working late most of a day, each day. I put T. in charge of grocery shopping (sent him off with a detailed list of course) and except a few small things that he put in a basket on top of what he was sent for, he did well. 🙂
I am still going strong with brining all my lunches to work. Since June 20th I only purchased lunch twice!
I am pretty sure we went out for dinner only once this month. I felt a complete work burn-out and I had zero ideas what to make. Tuc Tuc in Long Island City came to the rescue and it was a $25 very well spent. Plus no dishes to do. We ‘killed two birds’ and called it a date night.
I got $10 of $10 purchase at JCPenny. I never shop at JCPenny so not sure how come I got the coupon but hey, I’ll take it. I think new socks never hurt anyone.
Made a trip to CVS using a 30% off email plus other coupons from the ‘red machine’ and some more from inserts. I got $102 worth of ‘stuff’ for $33. I used to be able to pay much less (I used to be an avid cvs crazy coupon lady a few years ago) but nowadays I just don’t have the energy to plan out coupon scenarios and search for inserts etc. Saving 70% made me very happy and all I got was what we actually needed (vitamins, toilet paper, feminine products, face wash, etc).
I already mentioned in my previous post a great deal I got for a return airfare to Poland for this November. $603? Never happened before. I am very excited to see my family soon and saving 50% of what I was usually paying for flights.
Keep calm and stay frugal. X
