Days 3 and 4 of the frugal week.

June 17th, 2010 at 01:04 pm

Day 3 went just great, I did not spend a dime. Three straight days of no spending. I did have to drive to town to cash dh's paycheck, so I could give him his allowance.
But on day 4, I caved! Bi Lo has steak on sale this week and we both love steak. I try and stock up on it whenever it is on sale. (That is the one meat that dh will eat even if I freeze it first.
So, yesterday, I spent $20 and got 2 rib eye steaks, 3 N.Y. strip steak, a large container of Hood low carb chocolate milk and regular milk. (We were all out)

I am back to being good today. According to my receipt, I saved $6 on the steaks; the braves won last night, so $7 goes to my challenge money.

Prev. total $10,033.00
today 7.00
new total $10,040.00

    I really wanted to do the frugal week. I just can't pass up deals where I make money. I am planning a frugal week when there are no moneymaking deals. It has to happen eventually.

    A challenge is only good if it doesn't hurt you...I would say catching a sale is a good reason to suspend the challenge for a day!

    I think steak is a great reason to cave! Enjoy!
