Sharing Ways We Save

Picked a trampoline (small one perfect for exercising or for kids from neighbors curbside pile) it is now on our front porch.

Officially listed my bracelets for sale in several places one of them is a page here on the blog.... From Trash to Treasure

Made peanut butter cookies and dumplings from scratch.

Received  free medication samples from my endocrinologist when I visited.  I am supposed to restart a previously prescribed medication, and start new insulin.

Had lunch at the Senior Center on Saturday.

Visited the library and borrowed books and movies to watch over the extended weekend.

Met a lady when we went out today and she was no longer going to be a teacher so she gave my kids their pick of books. We also packed our lunch and a couple drinks to avoid spending any money.

In our travels we found one item that I picked up for $2.00 to give our son as a birthday gift.  A documentary on the Vietnamese War.  He is very interested in military things right now.

On the not so frugal end, my husband is no longer employed, and after I thought all my health concerns were clear I have found a lump in my neck that I am going to try and scramble and have looked at next week before our insurance is cancelled.  Prayers that it is nothing....all other tests have been clear, but lumps make me extremely nervous.

I don't know what is on the horizon for us, we wait.  It's an extended weekend, my husband does have some work leads to look into once the extended weekend is over. One day at a time is all we are doing.  I am sure we will be fine for at least the next month.  We will see what the Lord has for us in that time.

Hope everyone is having a great week.  Let me know if there is some way I can be in prayer or of assistance to you! <3 my readers!

Oh and here are two tips for the week in case you didn't know.  Check your area.  Most Wendy's are giving away a free small Frosty on Memorial Day, and on Tuesday 05/26 most Sonic's are having .50 corn dogs!



  1. So sorry about your husband's job. I will pray for him, as he hunts for a new one.
    also, will be praying for the lump and pray God take care of it right now.. That the doctor will find nothing wrong.
    You have done a great job with your frugal ways..
    Thanks for sharing about the sales.. I love when Sonic does the .50 corn dogs.. Cheap supper that night.ha
    Have a great week.

  2. I am sorry about the job situation. There is never a good time for something like that to happen. You will be in my thoughts as he follows the leads, which will hopefully lead to something even better.

  3. Ouch. Having no insurance, myself, I know how panicky you must feel about that lump and scrambling to get insurance to cover as much of the lab costs as you can get. Praying that all the lab tests come back clear!
