|A lovely sight to behold|
I used up some sour milk and made homemade whole wheat waffles and fried up some ham slices for Sunday breakfast. We also used our homemade syrup.
I made a pan of cornbread with whole wheat flour to take with us later that afternoon to watch with friends as the Seahawks slaughtered the Broncos. It was pretty tasty with the chili that was served. Along with all the other great foods that were there I totally overate.
I sold and listed items on eBay.
One day it was warm enough to actually hang a little laundry outside to dry.
I watched some documentary programs and a few of my favorite TV shows on Hulu for free.
A couple weeks ago I had printed some meat coupons off the internet. I'd been keeping my eyes open for good prices and lucked out on Monday to find ground turkey on sale for $2.99 a package. I bought five packages and used all three coupons that saved me 50¢ on each package. Just in time too because they expired on Tuesday. I don't find meat coupons very often so I was excited to get to use them.
I bought a package of 5 pork chops from the markdown bin for $3.16.
I bought 3 tubes of Carmex on sale at Walgreens for 3/$3 and used a $1 off coupon. I put them in my gift stash.
I did my major monthly grocery shopping. I carefully made my list, checked the store ads and paired coupons to some items on sale. I went to two stores and purchased six bags of groceries for less than $55.
I was able to add some items to the new freezer. The markdown bin in the bakery department provided me with three loaves of bread (2 at 99¢ each and 1 at 79¢), a package of whole wheat hotdog buns (89¢) and a package of whole wheat English muffins (79¢).
I treated myself to a peppermint scented candle from the dollar store.
Friday I made two beautiful homemade pizzas to take to our friends house. They needed some company and a little pick me up after having to put their kitty to sleep. We ate with them and enjoyed watching the opening ceremony for the Olympics.
How did your thrifty week pan out?
