Happy Friday from Hong Kong, my friends! TGIF...and because Monday is Buddha's Birthday, we have a 3 day weekend. Nothing big planned, and I am so looking forward to sleeping in.
Here are 5 things I've been doing to save money this week:
1.) Does anyone else make sure that they get every last drop of detergent out? I do with most everything. Always surprising how much you can eek out if you try:
2) Another little thing...rewashing plastic bags. I don't always do this, but if they aren't too dirty I do.
3) I bought a gift on ebay. I can't tell you what it is, but I saved almost $100 USD by purchasing the item on ebay instead of Amazon. The seller says it is a new product and that just the original box was damaged. I'm pretty excited about this one!
4) I clicked through Ebates first (now renamed Rakuten) to get $4.37 back on some items I needed for Maine this summer. Everything helps! I also got a $29.00 "big fat check" from Ebates this week. They payout quarterly and put the money directly in my Paypal account.
5) My husband and I are going on a date tonight using gift cards from a friend, so the meal should be free or almost free! Keep dating people....almost 27 years, and he's still the best date!!
I also packed salads for lunches for the whole week last Sunday, picked up a free book, Stash Camomile tea and some cooking oil on the free table, walked to work everyday and talked to 3 different friends about how to get good deals on airline tickets and credit cards.
How about YOU?? What thrifty things did you do this week??
