thrifty thursday #16

  • On very rare occasion, I'll contact a company with a complaint. I typically try to only send compliments, but I'd picked up a little Dr. McDougall's Foods black bean soup and it just wasn't edible. I love this brand and had had that exact soup many times before, so I sent over an email about it to let them know. In return, they unexpectedly sent me several free product coupons!
  • I used the clear bag from my new gear bag (needed to avoid a $200 oversize fee if they decide to measure my current bag when flying) as a trash bag for the kitchen.
  • I've made a few more sales on Poshmark. I desperately need to declutter, so that's helping some.
  • After making a pot roast in the slow cooker, I sent some with Kyle as he went through to the next town for work. It'll save him some money for a couple lunches.
  • With the roast I sent with Kyle, I also sent some utensils. I picked up a fork, spoon, and knife for 10¢ each at Goodwill along with a small 99¢ pouch to keep them in. I washed them up and now he won't have to use wasteful plastic utensils and they were way cheaper than buying a bamboo set.
  • I did my best to avoid Prime Day, but couldn't pass up the 60% off pet food if you signed up for subscribe and save. I scored a 40lbs bag of the pups' food for $15.11, saving me pretty penny from the usual $41.
  • I passed on a 'free mascara with online purchase' email offer from Ulta and saved that money.
  • I finally finished a book that's been cluttering up my nightstand so I'm gonna pop that over in a listing to sell it.
Send me your frugal wins!
