What did I do/buy this weekend? (January 27-28, 2018)

Wow! what a weekend! This weekend was particularly fun because I was in very frugal environments each day. My favorite places to be at! Come see what I did this weekend! 🙂

On Saturday, I went to my most favorite store in the world… Goodwill! 😀 And MAN, did I have fun in there! I stayed a little longer than usual because they had really good stuff this weekend!

Check out my big haul!

Yaaaaaas, I love everything in this picture! So let me tell you, my awesome readers, what I got at Goodwill this weekend! First , I got this cute little stuffed giraffe that stands for about a buck and I love him. ❤ He’s currently on my bookshelf looking cute and decorating it. 🙂 I also got a cool Kitchen Aid timer that is really loud when it goes off so I will be able to hear it from upstairs. LOCMom hates it, but I love it. I got the little guy for $3.20 and retail for one is $12.99. Score!  I also got some brand new Avery binder dividers for future use in case I would ever need some good ones that were not from Dollar Tree. $1.19 for those. 🙂 And then an item I actually needed… Scissors! $1.19 for those as well. Also found a cute Xmas Wal-Mart throw at Goodwill unopened for $3.19. I figure they’s about 5 bucks new at Wal-Mart, so I’m guessing I got a good deal on it. 🙂 And last but not least, measuring cups for LOCKitty’s food and a sketch pad for LOCMom! Both were $2.19 and that sketchpad was an absolute steal because they can go up to over 7 bucks a pop ON SALE for those types of sketch pads. Yeesh. > _>

So all and all, a very good day at Goodwill! 🙂

After that, I went home and relaxed. 🙂 But LOCMom and I finished the night off by visiting LOCAuntV and her black standard poodle, Boogie! We had a wonderful time and maaaaan, did Boogie ever like to play with his toys, haha. 😛

On Sunday, I felt in my heart that it was such a nice day that I decided to sleep in! Was that ever relaxing! 🙂 Today was also the day I started my diet again. In other words, the day where I don’t eat candy in between meals and exercise outside every day. 😛 So far, so good! LOCMom wanted to walk with me around our neighborhood, so we did that and then went home. Walked about 1.3 miles for 32 minutes! Woohoo! Good stuff! 😀

Then I went to the Frugalpants Grocery Store and bought some food for my diet. I actually skipped the rotisserie chicken this time because I had a salmon fish fillet at home. I have been kind of naughty buying rotisserie chickens this month instead of just eating the meat I have at home… But when I do buy them, they are never wasted because they are so delicious! *drools* I also bought some toothpaste there instead of at the dollar store because I needed some right away. I’m not crying too much over it because the toothpaste I picked out is what I have liked using in the past, so I am happy that I will be able to use it again! 🙂 So… 17 dollars later, I left the Frugalpants Grocery Store and went home and cooked dinner!

For dinner, I had salmon, maybe a little too much roasted broccoli, and yams. Then some ice cold water to wash it all down! SO GOOD! ^ o^

Lots of fun stuff went on this weekend! Hopefully more fun days to follow! And remember how I said in another Weekend Update this month that I went cashless in January? Well, it is at the end of the month now and my cashless experience was a resounding success! *insert party hard Dumbledore GIF here* I’m going to continue going cashless next month as well since I find I spend less money using my debit card than using cash. In fact, always in the past, I have always hated depleting my checking account of money I’m just going to spend anyway because I like having money in my checking and never taking it out. Going cashless fixes this problem for me and is a WIN-WIN all around! 🙂

How was your weekend?
