I was frugal today..

I had to run some errands today and pick up some neccesities at Wal-Mart so I had to come up with something quick and cheap for lunch and usually the kids throw a fit for McDonald's because they have Barbie stuff in the happy meals right now...lol but, today, I actually just told them that we were going to Sonic to get a blue coconut slush (they love those) and a cheeseburger and they were actually fine with it!! Yay for well behaved kids!! :) (I was really expecting a fit!)

Anyway, I ordered off of the dollar menu and it was 2:02 when I ordered so our $1 drinks were .50 cents!!!! YAY!!! I ordered 3 Jr. cheeseburgers , 1 small order of tator tots, 2 small blue coconut slushes and a medium sweet tea for me and my total came to....... $6.00!!!!!!

That's right, folks, $6, to feed me and ALL 3 children!!!! I think that was pretty reasonable for a fast food lunch and the cheeseburgers were really good!!! :)

How have you saved money lately???? Inquiring minds want to know!! Please share!!

The sonic dollar menu is great, the cheeseburgers are really good. My son prefers McDonalds too, so I usually only go to sonic when he's not with me. I'm not doing great with saving money, I feel like i spend so much right now. I can spend $50 just on formula and diapers. I have cut back on my credit card spending though, but still I don't feel like I'm saving much at all these days.
