Can you believe it? My final Thrifty Moves post of 2014!
I peeled the label off of the empty pumpkin roll scented hand soap dispenser and used Goo Gone to get the adhesive cleaned off. I refilled it with soap and put it back on the kitchen sink to use rather than sending it off to the recycle bin.
I rendered some bacon fat and refilled my dripping jar that I keep in the refrigerator.
On Christmas Eve I made a huge salad by clearing out the crisper drawer and using up a huge variety of veggies I found in there. There was enough salad to go with our dinner that night and again on Christmas.
On Christmas morning I collected any reusable gift bags, gift boxes, tissue paper, bubble wrap, and bows. I put them away for next year.
I used up three egg yolks left over after baking macaroons by making a lemon curd for a cream pie for Christmas dessert. I had a graham cracker crust in the pantry I had purchased at the dollar store a few months ago and also some leftover whipped topping in the freezer. I had originally planned to make a pumpkin pie but the lemon really called to us. It was delicious by the way.
I made a pint of Creamy Italian Salad Dressing and another one of 1000 Island.
The day after Christmas I watched some tutorial videos for free on Youtube so I could learn a few new crochet stitches. It inspired me to dig out my knitting bag which is filled with odds and ends of yarn left from finished projects. As a result I started my first Christmas gift for 2015.
I printed six online grocery coupons.
I shopped the weekly ads online and made up a new grocery list for January. I was excited to see several items from my "Stock Up" list were in the Albertson's ad.
We watched Castle on Hulu for free. I also watched The Blacklist after the girls went to bed.
How was your thrifty week?
