After frying bacon for Sunday breakfast I saved the rendered fat in my glass collection jar. I used a small amount of that fat when I fried our steaks later that night.
My girls gave me their heart shaped candy boxes in hopes I could come up with something clever to reuse them for. I'm sure I probably can. Since I have the room I put them in with our gift wrap supplies.
They also gave me two glass jars that a friend gave them candy in at Christmas. I can definitely reuse those. In fact one is already in use.
I baked two loaves of whole wheat bread. I've not only been missing fresh baked bread but also the act of making it. I find it very satisfying and comforting. I plan to do it more often.
I finished my grocery shopping for the month.
I had extra pancakes after Sunday's breakfast so I reheated them in the microwave and served them to the girls for breakfast before school. They don't often get pancakes on a week day.
Because of leftovers I only prepared half the meals I originally intended to.
I mended a tear in my youngest daughter's jeans. I also reinforced the knees of another pair of her jeans with iron on patches as they were wearing thin. I put the patches on the inside so they don't show.
I made two batches of homemade salad dressing.
I made a batch of homemade pancake syrup.
I used up a very ripe banana by making a loaf of banana bread. I plan to use it next week for breakfasts.
I made homemade Hershey's syrup for ice cream.
I listed and sold more items on eBay.
I was very conservative with my gas. I put less than twenty miles on my automobile this week.
How was your thrifty week last week?
