Did a bunch of work around the house and yard.  I think my wife knows how to motivate me, by casually dropping the line, "Maybe we should just pay someone to do ____."

That would probably work on me too -- but she also knows what else motivates me!

- Did 2 full loads of laundry in cold water; hung 1 load to air dry
- Eating out of the pantry and freezer this week; will only need to buy some fresh produce and fruit to round out the meals
- Waiting on some planned purchases to see if the retailer will have a July 4th promo code
- Staying at the office during lunch hours instead of running a few errands each day; waiting to combine all errands on one day to save gas

Presoaked some bean seeds to improve germination, and planted them. Hopefully these seeds (packed for 2018) will still be viable! Likewise, I put a damp paper towel in a ziplock bag, and scattered basil seeds from last year on them. After two days, they all have germinated and today I should put them in soil. If the seeds work, I'll donate the extras to the library's new "seed library".

My strategy to fight inflation is not only to spend less, but produce more: grow more food, mend useful things and give them away.

-I'm back to the office a few days this week, so took advantage of free gym classes offered through work (spin & yoga) this week, as well as free breakfast & lunch.
-Dug out a freezer meal my mom made for us when she was here in April, and had chicken enchiladas for dinner last night. Clearing out the freezer vs going out is always a win
-Using lots of garden items for salads & sides for meals. Lettuce, tomatoes, basil, cilantro, peppers, cucumbers, strawberries, lemons, spaghetti squash, etc.

Took off the carb and cleaned it and put in a new spark plug and my backup lawnmower started right up again. It's rusty and old, has no features at all, and parts of the push bar are wired together, but it works.

Sure, it has at least one feature. It cuts the grass, doesn't it?

1. Decided it was time I redeemed my stash of Amazon GC's - $325. - I had no idea I had this much:).
Together with what I have accumulated at Swagbucks around $50 or more, this is enough to purchase the new fountain for the garden.
Prime days are coming up in July...

2. Got enough tomatoes, onions, garlic chives, peppers, oregano, celery, rosemary and parsley to cook up and freeze one last big batch of tomato and pepper sauces.
I thought the garden harvest was over for our Florida season but this turned out to be the best veggie garden production we ever had.
I'll have plenty more to freeze and/or eat fresh - tomatoes have slowed down but I still have good pepper production.

True, that is it's only redeeming quality.  Of course the $699 Makita self propelled battery powered mower would do that too 😉

I replaced the leaking fittings on two old garden hoses instead of buying new hoses. Cost: $8/hose.

I've listed all my errands in order so that I can keep gas usage down. I'm using two cc rebates to get almost a full tank of gas for free!
I used some gift cards and loose change to get a gift for a friend.

Spotted two grohe faucets on a free sink coming back from treating my sister to burritos. At least 8 pounds total of brass on those suckers. With a couple turns of the retaining nuts I had some metal to add to my pile and paid for lunch. On the rest of the walk back we hit the neighborhood blackberry, mulberry, plum and apricot trees for dessert, a very satisfying walk home.

We are in the process of renovating our old house. We won't be done until next year, but today I accidentally ripped the last bed sheet we had left. I have been trying not to buy new sheets because I want to buy new ones when we're done, that match our decoration.

We're still in the "ripping things out" phase of renovations, we have decided where we'll put new walls and electrical outlets and the like but we have absolutely not made any kind of decoration decisions at all. Most of our furniture will go away because it's all second (third-fourth-fifth) hand Ikea that we got for free a decade ago, and when we're done we want to really re-decorate our house with stuff we actually like - good quality, nicely designed used furniture. But the style and colour will depend on what we're going to find, we don't know yet.

Because we really needed new sheets I decided to have a look at the Dutch alternative to Craigslist and found two sets of name-brand sheets, still in plastic, for Ä25 shipping included. That's extremely cheap, even in the cheapest department store the cheapest sets are Ä25/each. Downside is they're extremely ugly so we're not going to want to keep them long-term when we're done decorating. But they're 100% my mum's style so next year when we have a new bedroom and two beautiful new sets of sheets, these lightly worn sheets will be passed on to my Mustachian mother and she'll use them for the next 30 years.

It's not mustachian but I'm over 30 and I've never owned a sheet I liked. All of them came from thrift stores or from deceased relatives and the like. I am actually already excited about finally picking out two sets of sheets with a lovely print made from the best fabric. I'm excited enough about finally having furniture I like instead of whatever happened to end up in our house for free, but oddly enough I'm most excited about those awesome sheets I'm going to buy next year.

I tried to get my eyebrows professionally groomed this morning as I have an event with folks I havenít seen since high school  this weekend and there will be photographs taken, but alas the threading shop is closed on Tuesdays. 

This evening I called my mortgage to see if reamortizing was a possibility.  Sadly it is not, so there we go.

Made my own chicken broth in the Instant Pot from a rotisserie chicken carcass.  Worked great, so that will probably a nice steady source of savings and waste reduction.

We pay for my parents flights, when they come to watch our teens. Bought flight gift cards at Costco, saving 10% off the price. I also earn a bit back on my Costco card. Found a great deal on the flights themselves, and then pulled the trigger. Travel is all over the place, pricing wise, these days, so it was nice to combine a drop in pricing with the gift card deal.

Took breakfast, lunch, and snacks to work. It adds up really fast when I buy those from the cafeteria.

Resisted the impulse to run errands, which usually means going to stores where I will spend money.

I didn't buy one single thing for Prime Day.  I did look over a few things that I'd been thinking about, but no great deals on any of them, so I passed.  I might get a new FireStick on Black Friday because the remote to mine stopped working awhile back.  For the time being, the app works fine so I'll live with it.

I didnít buy from Amazon but last year I stumbled on Chewy discounts concurrent with Prime day and got a years worth of pet flea and tick meds very discounted, so of course I made note of that and waited to make my order. I donít think the discounts were quite as big this year, but it was still a significant savings.

Our dryer was over 20 years old and needed to be replaced. New they are over $600, so that wasn't an option.
  The spouse has a friend in the scrap metal business, so he called to see if the friend had any dryers that he hadn't scrapped and may be functional. Unfortunately, he didn't.

 More research turned up used dryers on Craigslist or FB Marketplace going for over $200, or $75 for an ancient model. Used appliance stores in town didn't have any dryers for sale.
 Just when we were looking at traveling to another town to pick up a used model, the scrap metal friend called. It seems that a couple hours after my spouse called, someone had him pick up a dryer they didn't want. The dryer is a decade old, much more modern in looks and style than our previous one, but it had some dings and stains, and the plastic on the front panel was cracked.
  The spouse went and picked it up, unscrewed the panels, cleaned out the air intake and the electrical coils, replaced the vent ducting, and voila - a working dryer. We gave the friend money for his time and effort picking up the dryer, plus what it would have earned him at the scrap yard. And of course he took our old dead dryer.
  But the spouse and I were both excited. It was serendipitous that the friend happened to get the call about a dryer that day. And my husband was willing to put in a bit of time to clean up the dryer. VS $600+ for a new, or over $200 for a used, we paid $20, a 90% savings over the other used dryers. And the friend came out ahead too!

We had free dinner at work tonight, which was great. :) I put my packed lunch in the fridge for tomorrow.

I also did laundry before work and put it on racks to dry, as usual. I typically only use the dryer to briefly tumble the wrinkles out of uniforms without heat before hanging them up.

I need new sunglasses but I've been putting it off and using my old wonky ones (my good ones are prescription, and no longer adapted). The old wonky ones are good enough, but they totally suck when I'm working out outside, and the nose thingy keeps falling off and getting lost.

This morning I got an email that I had a $40 rewards coupon at the online store where I bought the prescription ones last year. So I clicked, and the model I like was on sale. So I ended up ordering them for about $75, saving more than $150 on a pair of good-looking, high-end sports sunglasses that will last years. Even if the lenses aren't the color I'd prefer, but these weren't on sale.

I always clean up garbage in carts when I return them in the parking lot of the grocery store. Saw one with two free coupons (one for an avocado, one for a dozen eggs). Used that, and picked up the Friday Freebie, which was my favorite protein bar.

Gas was down 15+ cents per gallon this morning so I filled up using 50 cents per gallon off from a loyalty program and put it on a card getting 5% back this quarter. 



I don't know about "saving," but I booked tickets to Six Flags and a night in a hotel (close enough that I won't have to pay for parking) for about $150 less than the same night at Great Wolf Lodge.

Used an unexpected Amazon gift card to buy some things on my list I'd been needing. When I told the givers thank you in person, and that I'd already used it, they asked what I'd gotten myself. Oh, the toilet plumbing root treatment my plumber recommended, some undershirts, and some shaving stuff. They were a little nonplussed at the items, but they were happy I got things I needed. It seemed they were expecting that I'd bought a new outfit or something more frivolous, but those items make me happier than a new outfit :)

I joined a group buy and purchased a weekly pass for a posh club with outdoor and indoor swimming pools, fitness classes, and a kids play area. Cost us $120 for 7 days of keeping DD amused. Typically, individual day passes are $60 per person.

Returned some old products I didnít need that I could still return (unused, within the return window, etc.).  Now have a negative balance on that storeís account.  Called them to request a check/electronic transfer.  Can literally take that money right to the bank.

Saved $1,300 on Tuesday!!

Went out with the coworkers to a swanky gastropub before a baseball game. Drink, apps, and beers flowed. It's amazing that 10 individuals could run up an $6,500 tab in 2.5 hours.

The service was slow and the Opus One served in regular wine glasses. Caviar was meh.

Company was paying, but we had to do the right thing.... 

Instead of a monetary tip, we shared feedback (aka tips) that will help the future generations of these peasants ear their keep.

jk - We called Geico and saved 15% on our car insurance

Called my business bank to waive a $36 overdraft fee. I had a separate account setup for sales tax that normally just has a few hundred dollars in it for each quarter. My new bookkeeper cleaned up several quarters of previous filings that the previous bookkeeper screwed up so it over drafted for being short about $50. Meanwhile, my main checking account had thousands in it, but I had never setup the automatic overdraft protection. Took about 3-4 minutes on hold to get to a person but he waived the fee as soon as I brought it up and setup the overdraft protection.

Sold some stuff we don't need. It's all small amounts (Ä25, Ä40) but it adds up over time. Most of these things were bought used as well and are sold for roughly the same amount as we bought them for.

We're getting lots of produce from our garden now. Grapes, zucchini, tomatoes.

We decided to cancel some upcoming activities, which is a shame but will save us a couple hundred at least.

Picked up a bunch of wild blackberries when I went for my run this morning. I had a spare (clean!) ziploc bag in the car so I used that. I'll make sure to carry those every run for now on, until berry season ends (it's just starting now, yum).

Actually, you can call Geico and tell them you own Berkshire Hathaway stock, which you certainly do if you have an index fund although they don't actually check, and Geico will give you a discount.  For some it can be a lot.  Try it.  It will take two minutes and could be worth 5 to a hundred plus bucks.

Had a hodgepodge of various food in the fridge and not enough to really make a dinner with so I decided to mix them all together, add some sauce and put in crockpot to heat up. I added some more veggies to it when I mixed it up. Came out pretty tasty and had quite a bit once all mixed together.

I read about a lady who collects leftovers and puts them all in a bag in the freezer. When it gets full, she makes a goulash or soup out of it. Pretty clever way to not waste food!

We ran some earplugs through the wash. Good as new!

I did that with my small pocket knife. Clean!

Got a free lunch yesterday at a work event, and we had enough left over that I had a second free lunch today.

I washed out some plastic drink bottles to fill with juice from a large grocery store jug instead of buying the single serving ones in the cafeteria (work fridge isn't big enough for a jug of juice).

Figured out a way to drill a 1 inch hole in my concrete wall without having to go buy a hammer drill.

Someone complained that my footwear was rather, "unfashionable". The next week, found a new pair of good looking Air Force 1's in my size a block from home on the street in a free pile. Got a compliment the next day from the same friend who teased me earlier.
