Frugal Friday with Marsha--Shopping with Apps


Due to our financial situation, that I won't go in to, I am now responsible for earning all money to buy groceries and such.

I started out this week by using some of my amazon gift card credits to buy the cat food and cat litter.

This morning I have gone through my apps to make my shopping list.

Ibotta is full of any brand items that are on my list: bacon, pasta sauce, onion, bell pepper, cheese, eggs, milk, bananas.

The cheese, milk, eggs, and bacon are also on the Target cartwheel for 5% off.

The bananas are also on savingstar this week for the healthy choice offer as well as on checkout51.

Other items on my list are Reeses Puffs cereal with rebate from savingstar (which I have printed a coupon through swagbucks to earn back 10 swabucks for using it) and HoneySuckle White turkeypatties from ibotta.

Dr. Pepper is our vice and I can get it 10% off at Target through cartwheel (also printed coupons from swagbucks and inboxdollars for credit!). Also Cheez-Its are our favorite snack cracker and they are currently 20% off through cartwheel.

I have $20 in Target gift cards to spend as well as a $5 Walmart gift card and $2.88 on my Bluebird card from the Walmart Savings Catcher.

Can I buy everything on my list for the $27.88 that I have to spend? I will give an update next Friday as well as give you my new list.

p.s. Most of my gift cards I have earned from swagbucks, and also some from PerkTV.

In the meantime I look forward to the frugal type posts that you choose to share too.

Writer's Unite 5/14/15


Getting back into the 'groove' after vacation last week.  I have done one of my reviews with giveaway so far but have one more review/giveaway, and 2 other reviews to get written on products that came in while we were away.
It's best for me to just ask you to wish me luck.  Re-establishing any kind of a routine since coming back home is proving to be a lot harder than it should be.

I do look forward to checking out any of your writing that you choose to share this week.

WIP Wednesday 5/13/15

Last week we were on vacation.  The only sewing I did was in the car while hubby drove us to Branson, and while he drove us back home later in the week.
I'm sure glad I didn't forget to take something along!  I did, however, forget to put a needle in my box.  We found the first store along the highway and stopped to buy me some.

I made7 more yo-yo's.  All of these needed to be added to my yo-yo/hexagon storage box:

And, I sewed up a total of 48 hexagons!  These too will be added to the storage box.

I have yet to check what this month's color is with the soscrappy blog, but will do that today.   I will try to get some things made for the color, but I also MUST get my fractured pineapple quilt worked on.   I will make that my goal to have those 2 things to show you next week.
