Household Frugality

October 23rd, 2015 at 09:30 am

Our household expenses have skyrocketed lately - partially due to baby and part due to being home more. I am working hard to make every purchase be as productive as possible.

Target has a deal on toilet paper - I was able to get TWO packages of 48 Double Rolls for $29.25. They have a subscription promotion, I used my Redcard Debit card.

Then I used a $25 gift card I earned on a diaper deal from the other day. After all that, I paid $4.25 out of pocket for 96 double rolls of toilet paper. Can't beat that deal!

I also got a great deal on paper towels as well. Two Bounty Huge Rolls (set of 8)at discount for $26.59. I used a $20 gift card from my deal the other day, paying $6.59 out of pocket.

We still have $20 in Target gift cards from the Diaper deal. I am keeping an eye out for a good paper towels deal LOL

I also was notified by babies'r'us that their promotion for our Baby Registry has hit. They gave us a $169.38 gift card to use there by Feb 23, 2016. That will go a long way! We also still have $200 in BRU gift cards that we have been gifted. I hope to use them well.

    If your household expenses have skyrocketed because you're home more, has the dining out/going out expenses decreased accordingly? If so, I wouldn't be too hard on yourself.

    Oh yeah, dining/going out has decreased. The household expense increase is mostly special diet formula, diapers, wipes, a new diet for my post gestational diabetes, etc. Being home more, we use more dishes and go through more TP, paper towels, etc.

    I am definitely not down about it as much as I want to limit these increases as we have other goals - saving for a new home being the important one!

    I saw that deal on toilet paper, but didn't act on it quick enough. It's good to stock up when you find a deal.

    Do you like the red card debit card? I too have a new one, plus older kids...hooray on family and hugs, but ouch on the finances! I've also plugged in info on the Enfamil website. They sent me a free huge box of different types of formula (at least $40 worth).

    I like the Red card - instant 5% off can't be beat.
