Great week for grocery savings

May 24th, 2007 at 08:20 am

There are some great deals at the grocery store this week, because of the Memorial Day weekend.
I saved $40.05 at Albertson's, and spent $26.70 , so I will add the $40.05 to my challenge money.

We are going to stay home this weekend, and fire up the grill. With a great yard, and porch so sit on, to view the mountains, I would rather avoid the traffic and the high gas prices.

For everyone who is traveling, may you be safe, and have a great holiday weekend!

Active frugality

Today, I made laundry detergent, and shower spray. It was so easy, and inexpensive, after the initial purchase for the ingredients. The shower spray recipe came from Denise, in Pennywise Meanderings, and the detergent recipe is easily found on lots of sites. The detergent recipe is supposed to average one-cent a load. Can't beat that price.

My ING account is increasing, and it is great seeing the interest increase too. I am more than half way to my savings goal for the year, which is pretty much on target.

DH has had a bad week, however. Yesterday, he accidentally put unleaded gas in his diesel truck, and that cost $400.00 to remedy! Then, he had a root canal which cost $800.00. I told him he is a "high maintenance man". Next comes another root canal, and two crowns. Yikes!
