I used up some spinach that was just beginning to wilt by adding it to a batch of Italian Black Bean soup and also a spinach quiche for our dinner.
My oldest used up some sour milk in a double batch of whole wheat waffles.
I made a bottle of salad dressing.
I thinned down a jar of pesto with a little olive oil. It seemed extra thick to me. We added it to some pasta with a little parmesan for a quick meal.
I watched Downton Abbey on Amazon. We also watched our copy of Pirates Of The Caribbean. The girls borrowed books and a copy of Harry Potter on DVD from the library.
I reorganized the pantry and made up a new shopping list. I also checked out the ads and made decisions on what to buy this week and at which store based on the weekly sales.
I grocery shopped at two stores this week stopping at each one on my way home so as not to waste gas or time. On Tuesday I stopped off at our corner market for a couple produce items, eggs and milk because they had the best price on these items this week. Wednesday I stopped at Fred Meyer and picked up items from my shopping list that were on sale as well as some additional produce items that were well priced. I used several store coupons as well as manufacturer coupons.
I stocked up on frozen chicken breast tenders on sale for $5.99 per 2.5 lb. package. I bought two. They will last us for awhile.
My greatest buy this week was two one pound boxes of Ronzoni pasta that were on sale for 79¢ each. I had a $1.00 OFF coupon on 2 making my final price per box just 29¢!
I got my hair cut and colored by my stylist for the first time since October. I was due. J
I recycled a Snapple bottle and two gallon size zipper bags to reuse for food storage.
What great thrifty things did you do last week to save money?
