thrifty thursday #15

  • I've been digging in the freezer and eating up frozen chicken and sides I had hoarded from things I got from the kitchen.
  • I redeemed another $5 Walmart gift card from Microsoft Rewards.
  • Venmo paid me a dollar for using my card three times in the last three days. I didn't know they did that, but I'll take it.
  • Subway sends me coupons via text and I redeemed a buy one foot long get one free coupon.
  • I had rooted a piece of my Monstera and sold the little guy locally for $5.
  • Mypoints has rewarded me with a $50 Lowe's giftcard for the points I've earned!
  • I cashed in some points via Mapco Rewards for a total of 33¢ per gallon. The rewards for cents off are cumulative!
  • I was assigned tomato and lettuce for a cookout and since no one was going to eat them after the burgers, I took them home and got three salad lunches from the leftover lettuce.
  • For June's First Reads, I picked up Trance by Adam Southward. It looks pretty good!

sunscreen deal @ ulta

Around mid-June Ulta had a special on sun care products. Any product on their selected list received 5x the rewards points. Our favorite brand, Sun Bum, was on the list AND buy one get one 50% off!

I got both of these for $23.94 including shipping. I used the 20% off coupon on top of the bogo 50% off, which took off another $4.50. Regularly they would've cost me $28.98 before shipping, which is $5.95. I also received 111 rewards points for my purchase, which is enough for $3 off, bringing it down to $20.94.

Kyle and I both use this brand when we umpire because it's cruelty free, coral safe, vegan, and it smells like bananas! (Their face line is fragrance and break out free.) Definitely check them out!

free basil plant

This past weekend I went to the county fair and as we were walking around, the 4H table offered me a free basil plant after I'd bought a raffle ticket. I had initially said no, but as my Thai basil plant isn't taking off like it should, I decided I'd take one when the lady offered again.

Hopefully this one fares better and rewards me with fresh herbs!
