Money Saving and Stockpiling Challenge Day 6
Yesterday was back to work day....BOO! It was also a Monday and it rained all day....double BOO! However, this weekend is looking fabulous weather wise, so I'll take rain when I'm stuck indoors all day, and warm and sunshine when I'm off and able to enjoy it! Here's how I saved money yesterday:
--I went to two stores, one to get a DVR box (but I couldn't get it b/c I didn't have the old one, and I wasn't going to pay the extra $5 to have both, only to return the old one today) and Shop-rite. It's in the same little strip mall and it was raining hard when I got there (figures). I parked between the two stores and walked in the rain, instead of moving closer to one, so I saved some gas and got some exercise.
--At Shop-Rite, I got apples that were on sale for .99/lb, some bananas that were .79/lb, rolls for Mike for lunch, lettuce on sale for .99 each.
--I had the code for the RedBox thing, so I got 'The Day the Earth Stood Still' for FREE!
--We did a dinner and a movie date at home. We had some Freshetta pizza that I got on sale a few weeks ago and ate it in front of the TV with only 1 light on.
--I worked out to a DVD at home, saving money by not having a gym membership.
--When I took a shower last night, I turned the water on and hopped right in. Normally I will let it run for a few minutes to get the bathroom nice and toasty before I strip down, but I need to stop doing that, so I started last night.
--DH and I took a shower together to save on water.
How did YOU save money today? Any other tips you have about saving money, please share!
