Frugal Friday With Marsha -- Senior Discounts and More

Senior discounts are one of the great perks that come with getting older.  You can start collecting from some stores as soon as you turn 50.  Dealnews has put together a comprehensive list of senior discounts from A to Z.  You will want to click the image below and check them all out!


This week I spent right at $20 for my food for the week.  I bought a lot of the same stuff--a banana, an orange, a yogurt, 2 Lunchables, 2 Michalini frozen entrees, a string cheese, a snack cheese, and 3 2 ltrs of Dr Pepper.  I also splurged on a package of cookies.   I found that the Oscar Mayer ham and cheddar lunchables that also include 2 cookies were on sale for just $1 each.   My oldest daughter bought me 2 more to save to take to my quilt retreat since the use by dates on them go into June (my retreat is the end of this month).

I'm re-thinking this food stuff.  In my mind I thought I could live on lunchables and frozen meals, throwing in some cheese, yogurt and fresh fruit, but I found this week that I am already tired of this.  I will be figuring some different things for next week such as buying a dozen eggs since you can do so many different things with eggs, bagged salad, and such.    I wanted the ease of the others, but it doesn't hurt me to actually spend some time fixing myself a meal.

My online and app earnings were pretty good this week with a couple of surprises:

**$11.35 PayPal from magicaljourneydownlinebuilder.  I was lucky and won the $10 top prize in one of their promos.
**$6 PayPal from gsn games.  I had 77 cents in my account so just used it to play in a solitaire tournament and got lucky and won $6.
**$25 amazon from Swagbucks
**$2.04 PayPal from Promoslice
**$2 amazon from Shopkick
**$1 added to my Perk Plastik card from PerkTV  (use code 860efbf6 for bonus points for signing up)

Today's Friday Freebie is Kroger Kettle Chips.  This will help me with snacks for the week.
