Despite the coupon doublers in the Sunday paper I decided not to do any couponing this week as there isn’t anything I truly need that was worth the trip to Walmart.
I made homemade granola, refried beans, pancake mix and three different salad dressings.
I repurposed two empty oatmeal tubs by covering them with a handmade label and storing the granola in them.
I finished organizing my sewing room using bins and boxes I already had on hand in my garage.
I thoroughly used up my bottle of shower gel and finished off two small bottles of bubble bath that had been taking up space in my bathroom cupboard forever. I recycled the bottles.
I laminated a soap sliver to a new bar so it would get used up and not wasted.
I used a store coupon at Walgreens to purchase my Valentine’s treats for my girls – final price 78¢ per gift.
I bought 3 skeins of yarn at Fred Meyer buy 2 get 1 free to finish two afghans I started by using up the scraps in my knitting bin. Two afghans completed for $6.40. Not too shabby!
A trip to our favorite thrift store to find jeans for my oldest netted her a nice pair for $2 and for me 8 paperback books for 50¢!
I cooked some carrots in my little slow cooker that a friend had given me. They were getting a little old and she thought my chickens would like them. They definitely do! Chicken candy.
Despite the frigid temperatures our chickens blessed us with 14 eggs this week.
