Monday, with it being a national and school holiday, I took the girls bargain grocery shopping for items on sale at various stores that are on our February and March shopping lists. I can now say we safely have a year’s worth of meat in our freezer along with a pantry chocked full of staples. We spent less than $60.
I took the girls on our “date night” for pizza and salad bar. It was kid’s day so their meals were half price. Our entire bill was $12. The last time we went out to eat was in November to celebrate the girl’s birthdays.
I signed up for a free sample of Tide stain remover and Purina One dog food. I also printed a coupon good for a free can of dog food at Petco. No, I don’t have a dog but I have friends with dogs.
I printed six coupons from coupons.com. Two are for milk!
I worked on both of my scrap yarn afghans throughout the week.
I used the money in my PayPal account to pay a bill.
I made a big pot of soup out of leftovers in the refrigerator. We enjoyed two suppers and a lunch out of it.
I finished off a trial sized bottle of lotion that had been rattling around in my bathroom cupboard for quite some time. I recycled the bottle.
I darned my daughter’s favorite knit gloves. One finger and one thumb had developed a hole.
I used up all the odds and ends of fresh veggies in my crisper drawer to make a delicious chopped salad.
I bought 7 jelly jars at a thrift store for 35¢ apiece.
Our chickens blessed us with 13 eggs this week.
