During a moment of weakness we thought we'd dash up to the corner and get some frozen yogurt. I remembered ice cream was on sale at the grocery store near us so we dashed up there instead. We were able to get two cartons of ice cream for the price of what three individual cups of frozen yogurt would have been. I used funds from our dining out and entertainment budget to pay for the ice cream. Much better deal and sweet tooth satisfied.
I picked up bread and bananas from the markdown bin at the corner market. When I got home I discovered one loaf was past its prime. The next day on the way home I stopped back in at the market and they happily swapped it out for me.
We managed to use the heater very little last week, only turning it on to take the chill off a couple of mornings. It has still been rather cool and wet around here but the weatherman has promised some warmer temperatures soon.
I bought cardstock and envelopes online for half the price of what I could find here locally. I also got free shipping.
Thursday was extra wonderful as both girls had their music concerts scheduled that day. My youngest one's concert was in the afternoon and they did a wonderful job. My oldest daughter's was an outdoor concert on the grass in front of the school. We were treated to not only the band but the orchestra and choir as well. They did a phenomenal job. I was very proud of my girls.
Friday evening was anything but thrifty because we attended a meeting at my oldest daughter's school about the trip to Europe next spring. She is hoping to raise money to put toward this trip with fundraisers and yard sales. I hope she is successful because the cost of this trip is easily going to run $4000. I'll post more about this later on.
I refilled my smaller laundry detergent bottle from the HUGE container my friend gave me. The soap was so thick I filled the bottle 3/4 of the way and filled it the rest with water. It is still pretty soapy stuff and I'll need to use even less than I thought with my next loads. I also refilled my fabric softener bottle. The smaller bottles store better in the RV.
On Saturday we re-organized the chest freezer. For anyone who owns a chest freezer they know this is a constant chore as they easily can become un-organized. I try to keep it somewhat tidy by using various plastic bins to keep stuff in rather than just tossing it all in there.
After the freezer was done I went ahead and did the refrigerator too. The pantry is in really good shape so I didn't have to do anything with it. Now I know what all I have and what I don't. Our meat supply is beginning to dwindle so I'll need to work on building it back up in the next couple of months.
We watched two episodes of one of our favorite shows on Hulu. I was able to watch the final two episodes of Suits on Amazon. We completely missed a season of another one of our favorites and thanks to our Amazon Prime subscription we'll be able to get caught up on that one over the summer.
