Frugal Friday

I went to a craft show last Saturday here in town. It's wasn't really frugal since I did buy a couple things for myself...one of the things that I bought was a bundle of bittersweet (pictured above) for $2 which I hope will dry to keep past this fall season...hmm, if I had my own yard I would consider growing it to sell. I did get a couple really cool craft ideas which I can't share now because it may give away a Christmas gift.
-
I thought these were some pretty good deals this week...
Hawkins
Chicken leg quarters $.79/lb
Pork roast $1.68/lb
Red Potatoes, 5 lb $2.98
-
Kroger (I did comp pricing at Walmart for milk and strawberries)
1/2 gallon milk 10/$10
Whole boneless pork loin $1.77/lb
Strawberries 1lb clamshell 2/$5
Organic salad $2.99
-
RiteAid
Kotex pads or tampons $3 - $3 rebate = Free
GE Power Strip $5 - $5 rebate = Free
Oral B Artica Toothbrush $2.49 - $2.49 rebate = Free
GE Indoor extension cord $2 - $2 rebate = Free
Adidas deodorant, body wash or spray $3.99-$ 3 = $.99
Brita pitcher or replacement filters $14.99 - $5 = $9.99

There are also some decent deals using coupons at Walmart. This link will give you the whole list. (Our Walmart prices are not always the same as what is listed here, but it is still usually a pretty good deal) Also, there is a good Progresso soup $1.10/1 coupon here.

As far as Halloween candy goes...if you didn't get any (like those of us without kids) or want more, Walmart marks all of the Halloween candy 1/2 off the next day...if you are trying to get rid of the Trick-or-Treat candy, you can take it in to Dr. Gregg and get paid up to $5 for it - now that's frugal and good for your health!

First of all... I can't believe someone sat and typed in all those deals at walmart on Money Saving Mom! How much time did THAT take!!!

And Dr. Gregg is great! Such a neat idea.

Oh, and I hope I'm one to get a cool homemade craft for Christmas :)

I agree with all three of Julie's comments!!!
I'm not sure about drying the bittersweet. I would think so. I always wanted some but never found any. One teacher always brought some in to decorate for the Nov. social from the woods around her house- so pretty
