You should come to any or all of them! It’ll be fun!


I look up to my father in a lot of ways–one of them being his, umm, “frugality.” See, my dad isn’t what some people would call “cheap.” He just wants to get the most out of his hard-earned money–I mean, who doesn’t? The following is just one example of his frugalness.

As many of you know, Kroger has this promotion where if you spend $100 or more on groceries in a month with your Kroger Plus Card, you will receive 10 cents off per gallon the next time you fill up. Most people would just take their car the next time it needed fuel, get their discount, and let that be it. Not my father. No sir.

He waited until all three of our families vehicles were in need of a fill-up. So, we caravaned ourselves to the nearest Kroger, positioned all of the cars around the same pump, and he then proceeded to fill up every car on the same receipt so we could all benefit from the discount. We saved almost $5.00! That’s five Jr. Bacon Cheeseburgers from Wendy’s (plus tax)!

Does your dad do anything that cool? …ridiculous? :-)
