Simply Saving Saturday - January 25

While at the grocery store I noticed an unadvertised 50% off clearance on a few different kinds of cereal.  I had coupons with me that I was able to use and paid just $1.00 - $1.50 per box.  I bought 12 boxes and I'm hoping to make these last for 6 weeks.  I also bought whole chicken on sale for $.99/lb. and bread at the bread store for $.99 each.  

This week we tried Taco Soup for the first time.  I added some shredded chicken leftover from another meal and we all enjoyed it.  I was thrilled when our child who doesn't care for soup ate it without complaint.

We borrowed movies and books from the library.

I cut our younger son's hair.

I saved the stickers from a Disney offer that came in the mail to put in Operation Christmas Child shoe boxes.

I reused plastic zipper bags.

Our on-going savings:

**Keep heat set at 66 degree during the day and 52 degrees at night.
**Wash laundry in cold water.

**Use online bill pay to pay our bills.

**Earn Swag Bucks for Amazon gift cards that I use to buy gifts.

**Earn Recyclebank points for gift cards, coupons and free magazine subscriptions.

**Husband takes lunch to work everyday.

**Turn lights off when not being used.

**Use scrap paper for notes and lists.

**Drive to town once a week for shopping and errands.  

**Buy less cereal and eat oatmeal and other homemade breakfasts several times a week.

**Reuse plastic and paper shopping bags for small trash and recycling.
