Frugal Friday File 2017, week 38...


Successes:
1.  Replaced the screen of broken Kindle 3 Keyboard myself.  Yippee-skippy!  Patting myself on the back and LOVING reading the repaired lightweight Kindle 3 so much more than the heavy Kindle Fire I've been using in the interim!

2.  I have been refraining from shopping, which seems to get easier with practice.  I did buy a used book on Amazon this week (shaved $6 off the price of buying a new copy).  It was a specialized book about a topic (which I will no doubt blog about at some point) that I felt was important to share with family.

3.  Preparing for the quilt retreat coming up.  I had to be in neighboring town today to pick a key for work on Monday, so I did go to Joann's while I was there and picked up some quilt batting using a 60% off coupon for one and a 40% off coupon for the other.  I bought a few small on-sale items for card making as well, then used an additional 20% off entire order coupon.  That took my total from $120 down to a much better $62.  Hobbies are expensive, but I try to keep my hobbies to ones that produce practical items.  :)

4.  Also filled up my gas tank while in same neighboring town at 10¢ per gallon less than it is being sold locally.  And I was nigh on empty, so I was happy to get a deal.

5.  And I drove the speed limit which saves on fuel economy and speeding tickets.

  1. I'm still impressed with your tech skills. I could just picture my Kindle's guts spread out all over a table and then quietly swept into the trash as I order a new one from Amazon.
