This is what we did this week to save some extra money:
- Stayed home alittle more to save gas and spending money
- Took Shawn to Home Depot for the free building workshop and made my last run to Kmart while we were out there
- We stopped at BJ’s and saved about .09 a gallon from the station across the street on gas.
- I used a coupon at CVS when we got Shawn’s prescription filled, it was only for a $10 giftcard but it’s better then nothing.
- We’ve been keeping the A/C around 78-82 and it’s starting to let up outside and cool down a bit. Hopefully I’ll be opening the windows soon.
- I used the crockpot twice this week and made double portions which were reheated in the microwave to keep the house a little cooler.
- I’ve started getting ready for the yard sale, it’s slow going but I hope to get alot done today.
- Since they refuse to fix my dishwasher I continue to wash dishes by hand and I believe it' saves some electricity unfortunately it doesn’t save time.
- I continue to unplug everything at night and am surprised at how few things I actually turn back on during the day.
- I open my paid emails, search with Swagbucks and check my youdata account everyday to make a little extra.
