Weekly Wrap Up

Is it really Friday? I have no idea what happened this week. It is time again for the Weekly Wrap Up over at Getting Ahead. Here is what I did this week to be frugal.

*Took advantage of the Zoo membership we got for Christmas from grandparents and took the kids this week. We took our own lunch so we spent no money!
* I really paid attention to my recyclables this week. We didn't produce that much trash, but my recycle bin was very full!
*We ate dinner each night at home except Monday. Mondays are so hectic for us.
*I filled out rebates for items at Menards.
*Shopped at Goodwill for some clothes for the family. Only spent $15 for 5 items.
*The weather was so nice I had the heat off almost all week.
*I stocked up on cheap meat big time at Target this week.
*Filled up our play area with FREE mulch!
*We are preparing to plant some seedlings this weekend to get prepared for our garden!

How did you do? Head over to Getting Ahead to see how others did this week.


  1. You had a great week, I wish we had a super target, so I could get meat too. I keep seeing people doing that deal.

  2. You had a great week!! We're still in the planning stages of our garden. My husband is building me a square foot garden box to have a salad garden!! We plant everything else in our flowerbed and in containers!

  3. You picked some nice days to enjoy the zoo!

    Sounds like you had a great week!
