Frugal Friday With Marsha -- Staying Busy

Yet another week that has been one activity or thing to do right after another!  Today is definitely no exception as it's my mother's payday, my grandson, Jacob's, 9th birthday, and I have to go get the rummage sale set up at church.

Has it been a frugal week for me?  Not really. 

I made another trip to Dodge City to stay a couple of days with my hubby.  Of course that is eating out except the free breakfast from the motel.  I did get smart though and brought a bagel, cream cheese, margarine, a muffin, and yogurt up to the room from the breakfast room.  Those made great snacks throughout the day.  We lost $98 this week at the casino. 

Nope nope nope, going to the casino is not a frugal thing to do.  I am well aware of that, and as I told hubby, I am glad that we don't have one real close to home.   It is a treat to be able to go, and I'm proud of us for not staying until all of the allotted amount for the trip was gone. 

This week, for some reason, they chose to give my hubby the honeymoon suite (they actually call it the executive suite) at the motel. (Best Western Plus)   That was such a delight having a hot tub right there in our room!!  Every time we get in one we both say the same thing-- "we really need one of these at home". 

Back to the rummage sale at church.  I have been trying to find boxes of rummage sale stuff in our garage to take to it.  That's been a challenge, and I've not been able to find much, because our garage is so jam packed full of stuff.  The stuff will NOT come back to our house.   Here's hoping too, that more people from church will bring in things for the sale.  I will know when I go this evening to put things out.

Before I forget, here is today's Friday Freebie from Kroger:

Free CORE Hydration Drink for Kroger & Affiliates

I've not had much of a chance this week to send off for freebies, but here is a list of the ones that I want to check out when I do find the time:

Free Sample of Bvlgari Omnia Pink Sapphire Fragrance

Free Samples of Astroglide Lubricant

Free Subscription to Woman's Day Magazine

Free American Farmland Trust 35th Anniversary Lapel Pin

Free Sample of ProSoap Water-Activated Hand Cleaner

Free Subscription to LEGO Life Magazine

Free Sample of L’Oreal Pure-Sugar Grapeseed Scrub

Lots of goodies to check on!

Hoping that this next week isn't near as wild with me being away from home and that I have more to report.

In the meantime, if you have posted anything that has to do with being frugal, simple living, saving money etc, please do link up.

WIP Wednesday -- Is There Progress?

I missed posting last week.  I didn't mean to miss, just totally forgot.  I was in Dodge City with my hubby.....which is where I am heading again for a couple of days......pretty much right after I get this written.

The week before I mostly worked on getting tissue box covers and pin cushion/scrap bags made.  I needed to complete them to turn in at guild for the boutique booth in June.

I made a total of 4 of the pin cushion scrap bags, but forgot to take a picture except of this one that I made for myself.

Here are the 3 tissue covers that I made to turn in.   I do plan on these being what I make this year for the adults on my Christmas list.

I went to "get r' done" at the quilt shop and now my Charming Stars quilt is ready to have the binding sewn on.

I got the flannel out that I had bought on the bus trip and got a little more done on the 2 rag quilts that I am making.  Once again they are at a stand still until I run across more flannel.

That's it for me.  I link up with the following blogs, so check them out as well. Lots of things being made and inspiration to be had.
