Happy Friday: Frugal Picnic Hip2Save Style

Sent from reader, Kim:
The idea that I’d like to share is my family’s nearly free picnic. We collected everything in the photo (including the bag) and had a wonderful picnic. Many of the items were mentioned on your site, a few were not. The apples were “purchased” with a rebate coupon from Fred Meyer – get $3 off $3 of produce, and the eggs were a freebie from signing up with the new Safeway program. It cost us about $1.50 out of pocket – including milk for our tea, and the extra we paid for the lunch meat, which was only 20 cents a pack. It was a great family experience to collect and gather the necessary items for a picnic!

Do you have a funny, “Hip”, or unique photo to share?! Email us at happyfriday@hip2save(dot)com. Every Friday, I will post one photo, submitted by you and/or another Hip2Save reader, that gives us a glimpse into your frugal lifestyle or simply makes us smile. If your photo is published on Hip2Save, we’ll email you a $10 Amazon e-card!
