Printed out a ton of coupons (at work) and took advantage of a super Catalina where I got a bunch of free food and $10 on top of that (when you take Catalina - cost). Another (less awesome but still good) Catalina got me 4 DiGiorno pizzas for $0.97 each, or about $0.40/meal equivalent (cost/800 calories).

1) Made granola bars for our day trip tomorrow. Also, made 70 buns -- some for the trip, the rest for the freezer.

2) Turned heat off during the day, back on for the evening though.

Made "energy balls" to start using up some random ingredients and to infuse some extra "health" into our systems.

Have the thermostat 3 degrees lower and using the space heater in the bedroom as an experiment to see if it will bring down the power bill.

Loaded the free weekly item from Kroger to my card.

Our above ground pool suddenly sprang a leak, very near the bottom.   We drained it down about half way and to keep from draining it all the way down, I climbed down into the pool to patch the hole.  It was 39 degrees out there.  Probably saved me at least  $100 in water fees, but I hope I never have to do that again.

Instead of going to the store to get some, I made coconut milk from dried coconut that I had. Worked really well for my recipe!

Cut cable TV, kept cable internet and added netflix.  Net gain of about $70 a month.  Started using Ibotto for grocery coupons.  There isn't a lot of savings there, but every little bit...  For my parent's birthdays I gave them $250 towards their new car fund.  I opened a capitalone360 referral account for them, so I will get $20 and they will get $25.  Net gain = $45 in free money for opening a savings account.

Walked to the gym. 
Longer than usual walk with the dog (2 hours)
Cooking from our food stash.  I made black bean chicken quesadillas with leftover shredded chicken (froze it last weekend when I made too much for enchiladas).  I made soft pretzels to eat tomorrow. 
Plan to make a few more items this weekend, but I'll have to pick up about $10 worth of groceries.  Butter, brown sugar, and avocados.  I'll walk to the grocery store too.

Made more pizza dough in the bread maker today. Would have made bread too, but I'm out of flour until I go grocery shopping Sunday

Yesterday I used up the last dough and made pizza. I had no cheese, I didn't have enough tomato sauce (technically I still have a full can left, but I had very little homemade tomato sauce left), I had no pineapple, and nothing that was a usual pizza topping. AND I didn't want to go to the store because I'm waiting until Feb 1, so I had to get creative. Used Thai Chili sauce on half the pizza, with a few frozen veggies and ground venison. The other half I just used peanut oil and spices. Then I used some ground meat and the rest of the tomato sauce to make a dip for the spice pizza. OMG delicious. Thai Chili pizza was ok, but it's missing something and I'm not sure what.

Exchanged feeding my downstairs tenant's cats this weekend for a free dinner next week.

Made flour tortillas, used (free) re-fried beans and spices to make burritos (14 of them). Froze 12 of them for future lunches. Each one cost me like $0.05 :).

Fixed our sink/dishwasher air gap myself. Consolidated our pantry food shelves to better see what we have and try to eek out a third week in a row with less than $20 grocery purchase.

Picked up portable food to take on my business trip this week; will walk the ~6 blocks from hotel to grocery store to get some fruit and veg when I get there.  Hoping to only eat dinners out during my trip.

Got photos, video and measurements today and am working with a shop in the UK to take advantage of the current exchange rate to get a new saddle @ about 30% less than if I bought the exact same thing from a US shop.

Bought two new kinds of loose green tea at an Oriental grocery store.  Noticed that they had a sale on tapioca starch and grabbed it on the way out.

Usually I stock up on shredded cheddar cheese when it is on sale, but I found myself out of cheese and resigned myself to paying the regular price of $4.99 a pound. When I got to the store I noticed the two pound blocks were on sale for $5.99, so I gave the cheese grater at home a workout, saved $2.00 a pound, and now we're stocked up on cheddar cheese for probably a couple months.

Accepted some awesome second-hand things from my Mom, who is moving.

A queen-size bed - between her and new housemate they had 4, and needed to get rid of one - my 10 year old is incredibly stoked to receive it, its great quality, and will last him into adulthood

A few pairs of second-hand work shoes - coming from my mom, I don't mind that they're second-hand, as we are the same size/foot shape, and she always buys decent quality.

Took the family to a free all day event at convention centre -- it was excellent and kids came home with lots of freebies.

Took a picnic dinner to the event.

Yes, it's scary, but it's just a modification of the same model I already have, and there are no dealers within 1,000 miles of me, so I'd be doing everything remotely no matter what.  I'll be holding my breath until I've strapped it on my horse and my butt's in the seat though!  My first custom saddle and hoping it lasts me for the 20 or so working years my horse has ahead of her.

The plastic pitcher I use to chill drinks finally broke after six years of constant use, so I had to get a new one at Target today.  I used a gift card leftover from Christmas so it didn't cost me anything.  I then baked a fresh loaf of french bread using our bread machine and ate a lunch of leftovers from last night's homemade dinner.  Then, I read a book.  What a good day.

Made hot chocolate mix
Remembered to use a coupon for dog food purchase
Fried up some previously boiled potatoes with veggies to take for lunches
Had leftovers for breakfast and lunch
Found a pet store within walking distance from home that can order the type of food I use for pup. Though it remains to be seen if it will cost less yet.
Used sewing machine to repair a shirt.

Filled a thermos and packed a 50 cent box of granola bars to take with us hiking today.  Came home wet, cold and hungry and warmed up the last of the chili plus some added leftover beans.  The Hub said, "I had forgotten how GOOD this chili is."

Made scones for breakfasts. 
Cooked sweet & sour meatballs and rice for lunches. 
Made guacamole from scratch (recipe cost about $3)

Picked more lemons from our tree to give to a coworker tomorrow.

Walked to the gym.

A low key, but awesome day.

Brought snacks from home and a steel water bottle on the plane today.  Filled the bottle after going through airport security, and had enough snacks to avoid going out to dinner after making it to my hotel.  Drinking some free in-room tea and going to bed.  Scoped out the cheap street food vendors on Yelp so I can grabl lunch for under <$5 tomorrow.

Repaired a friend's top in exchange for a take-out coffee. 

February is 'don't buy coffee or chocolate' month in our house, so this little bartering exercise has preserved my precious half-jar of ground coffee for another day :)

Today I found a pet sitter who will live in my house while I'm away for 15 days next May through a reputable source (also I noticed that this pet sitter and I have a mutual friend not associated with said reputable source).

Her rates are only slightly lower than the boarding place I usually take my pup, but no sales tax. Also I would have to drop him off the day before if I was taking him to the regular place, which has an added cost of 1 night. Between the lower cost, no sales tax, and 1 less night, I calculated $80 savings!

Also I save 3 hours worth of driving time and fuel cost, since she comes to my house and the boarding place is 45 min away. AND I get a free house sitter. Pup gets less socialization, but gets to stay at home.

Not confirmed yet, but she's available the days I am gone and is coming over on Friday to meet us. :D

Just tried to fix some unset grape jelly with chia seeds.  A friend recently told me she makes chia seed strawberry jam and her kids can't tell the difference (she just tells them its strawberry seeds).  So, I googled some recipes and mixed 1/4 cup chia seeds into a pint of unset grape jelly and will check on it in a couple of hours or in the am and see how it went.  If that worked I will do it with the rest one jar at a time so I don't have to recan it.  I may try it with some blueberries we have in the freezer too that need used up.

In case this doesn't work...lots of things you can do with jelly/jam that didn't set well.  Stir in yoghurt or oatmeal.  Add to BBQ sauce as the sweet component. Add to club soda to create your own soda pop.  Add to a smoothie.  Use a meat glaze. 

Some of these ideas work better with some flavors than others.  Just don't ask me how I know all these techniques for dealing with less that perfectly gelled jelly.

1) Hung a load of laundry

2) Lots of varieties of tea made at home today to keep me warm

3) 1 gallon of milk becoming jars of yogurt

4) Furnace off during the daytime

5) Soup stock from Friday's chicken bones is becoming a chicken-barley-vegetable soup in the crockpot for tonights dinner. Buns made Friday will be toasted with a little cheese to accompany the soup.

Walked to the library to pick up the books I ordered.  Thought about stopping for coffee on the way home but came home and made a pot of tea instead.  Perfect after a wet, cold walk.

Or whap it onto pancakes! I once made a huge amount of cherry jam from a tub of sour cherries.... had about six cups of juice left that never really set into jelly. But man, it was good on pancakes. Especially with sour cream instead of butter.

I was snowed in today, so after I finished shoveling I redeemed online rewards programs for $15 in Amazon gift cards.  Those should come in handy.  Then, I played My Vegas for a bit while cleaning up the house and earned another 3000 points toward our nearly free Vegas vacation this summer.  For dinner, I made chicken a la king with stuff I had lying around in the freezer and pantry and served it over some of the bread I baked yesterday.  Another day without spending any money -- other than what I had already spent for the stuff I used today.

Drank free trade show coffee instead of hitting Starbucks.  Passed by the hotel bar and had some free tea in my room even though I really wanted a beer (which I would have regretted anyway when it impacted my sleep).  Who knew Sacramento was so expensive?  I got a sandwich and a small bowl of chile today and paid $16.  No chips or drinks or anything.  Thinking Ill go on a voyage to Safeway tomorrow.

Last post I mentioned the fancy pants saddle Im ordering - today I lined up a buyer for my current one, so no advertising or ebay and shipping fee BS and makes the net cost of the new saddle fairly reasonable at the end of the day.

Called Century link and requested they reduce my rate to match their slow speed for my internet (i only get 2.5 here, far from the nearest node, but they are were charging me for 7.  Saved 25/month.  Now if i can only figure out how to get them to give me faster speeds....

Late summer here in NZ and I combined biking and foraging tonight and picked a 2 litre icecream container of delicious blackberries. Can't believe I'm yet to see anyone else doing the same. Aiming to get enough for blackberry porridge all winter. Yum.

I took apart three live christmas wreaths I had purchased in November to decorate my barn for the holidays.

I saved the metal form and the three red bows. Stored them away until next year when I will forage for greens and make my own live wreaths.  Although I could not bother with wreaths, I will because I enjoy them, this will make them free for at least several years as I reuse the materials.

Hung several loads of laundry on drying racks in front of the fireplace and have been crazy vigilant with food waste. Is anyone interested in leftover homemade chicken fingers, taco salad and butternut squash for dinner?

Not exactly money saving, but my bf packed lunches last night, completely of his own initiative! (Typically I am the lunch-packer. Which isn't like The Worst but it's always good to see support for one's goals and methodologies!)

Got cash out on the way to work and paid for my lunch with it, avoiding the dodgy $10 minimum electronic payment requirement at the place next to my work which means I have to buy 2 items.

It would have been better still to bring my lunch from home but a smaller spend is still a small win.

*  Brought lunch to work today (as usual, but I had a few "buy lunch" days last week, so back on the wagon)
*  Will take advantage of using a free gym tonight to work out (which I need to make a habit)

Rented our place in the parkinglot for a half year, so we don't have too pay for it ourselves.
I speak and understand English, but my writing is not so good. I'd like to learn to write better so if you see a mistake that is really stupid, PLEASE tell me so that I can learn from it! Thank you very much :)

Discovered an errant turkey in the bottom of the freezer.  Cooked it for dinner last night.  It tasted slightly freezer burned.  Made mole' sauce.  The Hub (who doesn't know the reason for the sauce) is raving about how good the burritos are.  Just ate another one for breakfast.  Damn, they are GOOD.

Is anyone interested in leftover homemade chicken fingers, taco salad and butternut squash for dinner?

I am, I am!  I'll bring dessert.  How did you prepare your butternut squash?  I usually just roast in the oven.  Not very exciting, and I'm looking for some simple tip and tricks.

Called phone company to ask why I owe them money if I cancelled service on the last day of last period.  They waived the fee.

Have ting cell phone pricing for my dad.  He's currently paying $20, but with ting, he would only pay $9. Does it count if you save someone else money?
