    And the winner is...... loritolman! Congrats Lori! I will send you an e-mail and you can reply with your contact info so I can mail your Cold Stone coupons and either my book or DVD.

    FYI - As I indicated in the Valentine's deals post, I included all their names as well so there were lots of folks in the running for this prize - and I can see why - Free Cold Stone! Thanks again to Cold Stone Creamery in the Triangle for their generous donation of the free product coupons!

    Thanks to everyone for sharing their frugal ideas. I love reading them and discovering new ways to save money.

    Now it's time for me to work on a good deals list for the Harris Teeter Super Doubles starting tomorrow! I should have it posted in a couple hours.

    I packed my lucnh for work and also took enough for my co-workers. That way we all saved money! We had wings they were great.

  • Faye Prosser - Smart Shopper Feb 15, 2010

    Love all your frugal ideas!

    We have van picnics all the time jjlbrown - they are so frugal so much healthier than most fast food.

    I am happy to see so many of you using leftovers so wisely. I can never understand the folks who throw away perfectly good food because they won't eat leftovers. Half the time, the leftovers are better than the original dish! FYI - you can pretty much throw any leftovers in a tortilla with some cheese and sour cream and you have lunch. Wonder if that will work with the leftover red velvet cake from last night?! lol

    Less than 24 hours til we pick the winner of the Cold Stone giveaway!

    Had to run errands with my kiddos all morning, so we packed a lunch and had a "van picnic" instead of eating while out. The girls thought it was a treat, it was way cheaper than fast food, and no line to wait in! Great all the way around!

    We ate dinner at home every night this week, we also repurposed leftovers for some of our meals, we usually put them in the fridge, forget about them and end up thowing them away on garbage night.

  • dchesney Feb 15, 2010

    I have eaten 8of 9 meals from food at my house. This is an accomplishment due to my previous eating out habits. It would have been 9 if I had not visited family. I have also decreased my grocery and food bill by 40%. I already notice the difference in my account. Now only if I could get my husband to take his lunch more often.
