FREE WORK PLANNER
I hope you've had just a wonderful day!
I wanted to try out a new nightly feature here on PPP, and would love to hear your thoughts on this one if you have just a minute today.
Almost every day, our family tries to save on something, so I thought it would be fun to show you how we've saved each day.
And, I would LOVE LOVE LOVE if you'd take a minute to share how you're saving too. (It's no fun for me to talk to just sit over here and talk to myself each day! You can leave a comment right over HERE.) 🙂
Okie dokie, here's how I saved today:
- Took my girls to our local water park ~ it was bring a friend day for $12.99 (we just got the girls summer memberships since it's hard to find neighborhood pools in Ohio), so we paid $12.99 for me (regularly $29.99).
- Scored 50¢ Wendy's Frosty Ice Creams along with free cups of water on the way home ~ spent $1.09 total for 2 frosties for the girls (I *think* most Wendy's are offering this over the summer ~ such a fun little frugal treat in the summertime!)
- Paid $9 for Papa John's pizza tonight after the 40% off coupon we posted over HERE. I really really really should have made dinner at home tonight (we have plenty of freezer meals in the freezer!), but after just being out late last night I forgot to pull a meal out this morning. I'm heading to the freezer this evening as soon as I finish up this post to make sure to get dinner done tomorrow!
- Cancelled our Xbox Live Membership ~ this has been a HUGE bone of contention in our home as our kids have never used this membership but we've tried to cancel numerous times in the past without any success. (The cost is $30 every three months ~ I'm embarrassed to say my husband catches it on our debit card once a quarter, but for whatever reason it just never seems to get completely erased ~ ugh!) After a 75 minute phone call today I *think* I finally have that membership completely cancelled, so I'm thrilled to save $120 this year finally (especially since our kids never even use our Xbox!)
And, while we didn't use this today I am loving all the deals that are in our Entertainment Book which I just ordered for $7.76 with the code JULY4 at checkout. I'm not sure how much longer the code lasts, but ours included BOGO zoo passes, water park passes, OODLES of restaurant coupons (at restaurants we actually go to), and is well worth the $7 cost! If you're interested in one, hurry over HERE to snag one for your hometown.
Have YOU saved big today? I'd love to hear what you've done to save some moolah ~ leave a comment to share!
By the way ~ we could save WAY more by staying home, but today was one of those rare days when we actually had time to scoot out a bit (something we really don't do all that often.) Hopefully in the next few days we'll have a no-spend day rather than a spend-less day, we'll see! 😉
