A Frugal Run Around Town

Here's my frugal errands from Monday while my daughter was in dance class. My son and I:

1. Dropped off two boxes of books and magazines at Half Price Books and made $10 cash.

2. Went to Walgreens and got one more Skintimate Shave Cream stuff for $3.24 (with tax). I paid with my Walgreens gift card (zero OOP) and got back $3.00 in Register Rewards. I "saved" $.60.

3. Used the Redbox at Walgreens and borrowed Being Green for the kids. It was free using the Free Redbox code on Monday. Sign up and they send you a text on Monday's with a free rental promo code. Mine didn't come this week....ekk! So I searched the web. :)

Monday, I also hit up a thrift store and got my son a Ralph Lauren polo shirt for $2, my daughter a pair of Limited Too capris for $2 and a "new in package" pack of Color Wonder paper for $.59. Not to mention a few odds and ends for eBay.

Today in the mail, I got $2.99 from Arm & Hammer (dryer sheet rebate) and two samples! Yay!!

Anything fun and frugal happen to you this week? Leave a comment!
