Frugal Things In November

1.  Coffee with friends at McDonald's using a McDonald's coffee card to earn a free coffee.

2.  Eating From the freezer and cupboards.

3.  Buying laundry detergent free of dyes and scents for a friend for 99 and 94 cents each after sales and coupons.

4.  Making homemade apple cider vinegar.

5.  Making grape jelly with homemade juice from gifted grapes.

6.  Making broth from the turkey bones and salvaging enough meat from the bones for four more meals.

7.  Cooking a pound of dry kidney beans, that cost me 50 cents at salvage, and ending up with $2.10 worth, if the cans of ready to use beans were also purchased on sale.

8.  Making my own pectin for jelly from apples I already had rather than making a special trip to the store.  Saved the cost of the pectin and the cost of the gasoline.

9.  Washing and reusing Ziploc bags.  I wash them with my kitchen towels.  Over 50 are being reused and kept out of a landfill for a little while longer.
