Fathers' Day Frugality

Thanks to someone at a blog I can't remember, I got a GREAT idea for a father's day gift for my Honey. My honey really enjoys washing the car - in a crazy way that makes no sense to my female mind. The tip was that over Memorial Day weekend, ACE Hardware had this huge sale and all these rebates and as I perused the list I came up with the following: 1-64 oz. Concentrated Car Washing liquid stuff (because you can't wash the hoopty Lumina with dish soap), 1 no hands tire cleaning stuff, 6 Microfiber Auto Cloths, and a 50 foot no-kinks water hose. Yes, folks, a car washing dream (and probably the equivalent of a blender for mother's day).
"Oh frugal rockstar, how much did you pay?" you are asking. I answer, humbly yet with a monster grin, "$5!!!!"
Go Me!
Go Me!
It's Your Birthday!
It's Your Birthday!
I included this tidbit for my Honey as part of his gift so this post will be no surprise for him :)
Now, I have Bunco this weekend and $5 to spend on a "Summer Fun" themed "prize". How much do I think I can get. . .

And how did Jeremy like the gift? Not the price, the gift? M
