What Did You Do To Save Money This Weekend?

June 30th, 2014 at 12:26 pm

Hello all. Hope you had a good weekend.

What did you do to save money this weekend? I made dinner at home on Saturday night and didn't leave the house, so I had a NSD. Yesterday, we had several home improvement projects that my husband and I accomplished. Funds spent on materials only. It was a long, hot day, but we were so pleased once finished.

Today, I brought my lunch from home and will make dinner at home this evening.

I also spent my $500 requirement on my new Chase card and will receive $225 back in bonus cash. (Thanks CCF! for the idea).

What did my frugal SA friends do to save money this weekend?

Barclays Arrival MasterCard - $400 CC Bonus

June 23rd, 2014 at 06:45 am

Hello all!
Following CCF's snowflakes, I was intrigued by the Barclays Arrival Travel Mastercard, which has a $400 bonus for travel after you spend $3,000 in 90 days, which we could easily do and pay off with some business expenses for my husband.

We may be traveling for my Daughters's soccer team in December, so i though this might behoove us to apply for it.

Any thoughts - negative or positive? CCF - do you have this card?

I just did the Chase card where you earn $225 for spending $500 in 90 days. That will be easy to finish.

Thanks for any advice on this card.

What Frugal Things Have You Done today

I love hearing everyone's ideas and thoughts about how to be more frugal (CreditCareFree! gives me great ideas, hope to get even more from everyone here!)

Today, I earned a $6.00 debit card which I added to my Amazon account.

I paid for a small Subway sub with my points, so no money out-of-pocket.

Hubby cleans the pool each day, so no $$ spent on an expensive service.

Will use up a .44 and a $1.15 gift cards on a coffee tomorrow, my daughter's and my Saturday ritual. Hey, its money!

What frugal thing did you today?
