We use our yellow Keurig everyday so find the cheapest coffee K-cups and coffee pods is key. Frugal tips and where to get the best price on k-cups.
Relieved that this week has been less expensive than last week. Here are some things we did this week in our frugal living mode.
Called our insurance agent about our vehicle insurance again just to go over whatever we could do to lower our rates. Our college age daughter, who we still pay for, was on a separate policy. By putting her in with our multi-line policy plan we will be able to say over $300 a year. That is substantial and worth the time I think.
I have to replace our windshield on my car and found out if it costs more than our deductible, it will not hurt our rates to file a glass claim for whatever amount is over our deductible.
I am cooking food out of our freezers this week trying to just clear it out so it can be reorganized and to avoid having to throw away something that is freezer burned. If we cannot eat the food we hope it is something the chickens might like but most times, I manage to make some sort of meal or food out of it.
I have a banana bread in the oven right now that I am using bananas from the freezer, some almonds that need using and some dried blueberries that have been around for a while.
I shop for many of our food and supplies from Amazon. I will do a post very soon on what I find to be worth ordering. But if you know me at all you know both hubby and I love coffee and have a Keurig we love and use daily. The pods can be expensive from stores so we have found a coffee we absolutely love and is very economical to order from Amazon. It is the San Francisco brand and our favorite is the Fog Chaser. We also love that the cups are not plastic but the little mesh bags.
In the stores the coffee pods run about .60 - .70 per pod and some more. We like good coffee so when we discovered this brand we were excited. The pods run for a box .36 a piece and if you do like us and get it on subscribe and save they are .31 a piece. Compared to Starbucks I'd say a bargain. I put the link below because folks have asked me what brand I buy knowing my frugal queen ways. It is an affiliate link so I would get a small portion that would go to help offset the costs of running this blog.
