Because I have some random things to share!
I’ve been having an awful lot of fun taking photos to share on Instagram (I’m thefrugalgirl on Instagram, of course), and I’m looking forward to learning how to better use my iPhone.
I realized yesterday that I have a My Publisher Groupon that expires at the end of May. Whoops. Somehow I always put these things off until they’re almost expired. Although realizing this two weeks prior to the expiration date is better than usual!
I read about a pretty neat company (Trade as One) on Tsh Oxenreider’s blog this week. It’s basically a subscription that gets you four boxes of ethical, fair trade food per year for about a dollar a day.
Yesterday, I got an email saying that Gathr.com is being discontinued. (insert sad face)
I have no idea why they’re shutting their doors, but I’m bummed out because I really liked the package I put together for myself.
I jotted down a to-do list this week and wrote, “Order pot.”
And only later did I realize how funny that looked.
I was reminding myself to order an All-Clad stockpot because I saved up enough Christmas and birthday money to make it happen. Yay! It should be here in a few days, and I’m so excited to have a non-warped pot.
This is sort of an odd time of year to buy a stockpot, as soup season is pretty much over, but oh well. I’ll get to make the most of it when fall rolls around.
I had a $10 L.L. Bean promotional gift card that was due to expire soon, so I ordered a work shirt for Mr. FG and I remembered to go to TopCashBack first. Yay, me! I like that they offer 4% back vs. the 2% that Ebates offers.
(Cashback sites are clearly not going to fund my retirement or anything, but if I’m already buying something, I’m not going to complain about a little 4% bonus.)
Also, I just noticed that I can get an extra 5% bonus on my earnings if I redeem for an Amazon gift card. Sweet.
Oh, and here’s a 7th thing…Food Waste Friday is up at Simply Being Mum today.
Have a lovely weekend, frugal peoples!
