Welcome to Frugal Photo Friday! All this month I have been partnering with Rebekah from SimplyRebekah.com. Each Friday we’ve been sharing pictures of simple ways that we save money. This week’s theme is: Anything Goes! For our last week, we want to see any kind of savings you have to share.
So um, I was speaking at a conference on Friday. And I was just a wee bit distracted by all the wonderful people who were there.
People like Rebekah from Simply Rebekah, who is hosting this series with me. Here’s photographic proof we were together — I just wish we had gotten her adorable little Noah in the photo, too!
In the process, my Frugal Photo Friday post never went up. Because I never got it finished. But I figured you probably wouldn’t mind if I posted it on Monday. So here goes:
As I’ve mentioned many times in the past, we’re huge fans of oatmeal at our house. It’s quick and easy, it’s filling, and it’s nutritious. Best of all, it’s very inexpensive. I got a 25-pound bag of organic oats from Azure Standard awhile back and we’ve not gotten to the bottom of it yet!
We love to make our own homemade instant oatmeal packets as it makes it so easy for the girls to make their own oatmeal. Plus, it’s just more fun to have it all pre-measured out in a little packet.
The freebies that come in our mail are always fun. You never know what will be showing up next in the mailbox. And every once in awhile, it will be a pretty fantastic freebie like a free razor, or a coupon for a free bottle of Herbal Essence, or I’ve even gotten free Starbucks gift cards before!
The best thing about the mailbox freebies is that they cost me absolutely nothing — just 15 seconds or so a few times per day to sign up for the freebies that are available. It’s totally worth that to me for the surprises that arrive in our mailbox on a regular basis!
Head over to Simply Rebekah to see her Frugal Photo Friday post. And thanks so much for participating in this series; it’s been fun!
