I turned two brown speckled bananas into three loaves of banana walnut bread. I used walnuts my father-in-law gave me from his tree at Christmas. He had even shelled them.
I showed my oldest daughter how to polish a pair of leather shoes. Mine! She did an excellent job.
I watched the first episode of the new season of Downton Abbey on PBS using our Roku.
I served it with some asian condiments to garnish with too - Thai chile paste, sweet chile sauce and soy sauce. Delicious!
On the way home from work I stopped at Walgreens and picked up some sugar free gum on sale for 69¢ a pack to put away for Easter. I also used a 50¢ OFF and a 25¢ OFF coupon on some dish soap they had on sale for 99¢ each giving me a little jumpstart on next month's non food items.
I received another Customer Appreciation coupon booklet from Fred Meyer in the mail. I plan to use several of these coupons as I used quite a few this month from the last batch they sent me. One is for $2 OFF produce and another one is for $3 OFF meat. I love that they do this!
I crocheted a lot this week. Using more yarn from my stash I made two more scarf and ear warmer sets. I think I'm going to work on making some inventory to restock my empty Etsy store either this summer or in the fall. I have a ton of ideas swirling around in my head of items I would like to make and sell. I also made myself an ear warmer to go with my coat from a leftover bit of soft gray I had from when I made my big afghan. Now I have one to keep my ears warm when I'm out in the cold, which I definitely needed.
I finished up every last bit of a bottle of shower gel I had turned upside down in the shower the previous week. I still have one upside down bottle of lotion I'm working on too.
I printed off several more online grocery coupons.
How thrifty were you last week?
