Hello Frugal Confessions Readers!

Here is my confession of the week:

I am super happy to report that after several weeks of diligently hypermiling (not in a dangerous way), I have increased the Mustang’s average miles per gallon from 21.6 to 22.2!!!! True, this does not make a huge difference, but I am optimistic that the trend will continue.

What is your confession of the week? I’d love to hear it!

Mine is that I just scored a trenta sized ice brewed coffee at Starbucks free because I brought my own cup :) I think she said it was earth day or something to that effect. They’re doing it all day today…..

I went into the bank to deposit some cash and was asked about my savings account. Turns out I was eligible for 3% interest instead of my current 0.5% because of my student status. The only requirement is that I transfer money on a regular basis (which I already do anyways) and it took away my minimum requirement (I don’t usually go below, but when I have to pay tuition or have an emergency cash flow problem, it sometimes does) which is a bonus.

Hello Lauren! 3% is SO much better than 0.5%–what a nice surprise. Thanks for sharing!

I try hypermiling but I only seem to do an okay job at it when I’m driving long distances, like on the highway. My husband, however, is really good at it. He can squeeze out a couple of extra miles per tank – definitely makes a difference!

Hello Little House! Thanks for sharing. I just got back from my Easter break with my family in PA, and while Paul was driving our car it went up to 22.3! Hurrah!
