Friday Five - April 5

this week's dose of what I'm loving, FINDING, and buying on a budget

1. Wedding Registry Event

Adam & I went to the Crate & Barrel Wedding Registry Event - a free event where store associates help you choose practical items for your registry. They even gave each couple a gift of two free C&B stemless wine glasses as a thanks for coming!

2. Dessert that’s under $3.

One thing I love about my hometown is you can get dessert for under $3. Buckeye frozen custard from my favorite dessert spot - Whit’s!

3. Friday Night In

Budget-friendly date night in - a library movie rental, Mary Queen of Scots, and red wine from our favorite restaurant.

4. Grocery Store Freebies

Do you have the Kroger app? Almost every Friday, Kroger offers a “Friday Free Download” coupon for an item they choose. All you have to do is open the app, click the item, and click “add to coupons” and you have a free item to get next time you’re at the store! It’s usually a small item like a candy bar or a drink (but hey, free is free).

5. Colorful Tupperware

Found this set of Martha Stewart tupperware on clearance at Macy’s, which were perfect for transporting cookies for a recent get-together with friends.

Price: $11 for set of three
