Frugal Friday 2018, week 27...


Successes:
1.  Happened across a station, off of my normal route, where gasoline prices were 10¢ less per gallon than the regular place I stop.

2.  Worked/working two days this week.

3.  I took a smoothie to work both mornings for breakfast.  

4.  I've been wanting some magnetic sheets to cut to size to organize and store some metal craft dies.  Did lots of web surfing and pricing.  Came across a tip that Home Depot has magnetic vent covers...8" x 15" and three to a package...for $4.98.  When Carey said he was going to HD, I pulled up the photo of the package online and asked him to bring me one package.  Works perfectly for my needs.  Easy to cut to the size I want.  Holds well.  Lower price than most alternatives I found, and no shipping costs.

5.  I cooked a large pork shoulder roast in the slow cooker this week:  street tacos one night, burrito bowls tonight, and some for the freezer that will make pulled pork sandwiches later.  I also saved the liquid from the pot.  I will remove and discard the fat from the top, and then use the liquid to make a pot of beans this weekend.
