What can YOU get for $5??

What can you get for $5?  Let's see, about a gallon and a half of gas, lunch from McDonald's Dollar Menu, a gallon of milk and bread.  About right?  NO!! We Frugal Friends can get a whole lot more than that for five bucks!!!
I thought this would be another fun weekly feature to add to the blog and the idea actually came from a conversation I had with my Dad this weekend.  He gave me $5 to pick him up a couple of the Schick Hydro Razors at Walgreens this week.  And that got me to thinking, what can I get for this $5? So, here's what I got....

So here you go Dad, this is what your $5 got you this week!  Actually I've got about $4 in this, so Thanks for the $1 tip :)  What can YOU get for five bucks?? I know there are some AWESOME Frugal Friends out there with some great shopping skills!  Leave a comment with your $5 shopping trips!

  1. Went shopping yesterday at Kroger, Walgreens and RiteAid. I sorted through my "finds" to see what I got for $5. 2 Baby Magic lotions, 1 Colgate t-paste, 12 Butterfinger Snackerz, 1 32oz Coffemate creamer, 4 Old Spice bodywashes, 4 Old Spice deodorants, 2 Dawn dish liquids, 1 Airwick Freshmatic and 1 pack (12 rolls) Charmin toilet paper. I only spent $4.95 on all of this. The only things I actually paid for was the Charmin and the deodorants--all the rest, I received for free either with coupons or store rewards!!! I love "FREE" shopping!!!!
