On Sunday I grabbed a couple coupons and went to Fred Meyer and JoAnn Fabrics to pick up some skeins of yarn on sale. The coupons added extra savings. Most of what I bought was to add to the yarn I already had to make some projects.
I crocheted another scarf and ear warmer set using one of the skeins I bought and leftover yarns from my stash for the contrasting colors. I also started crocheting a baby afghan.

I pretty much cleaned out my crisper drawer in the refrigerator making two nice sizes salads that we enjoyed throughout the week. My oldest made salad dressing.
I watched another episode of Downton Abbey using our Roku. I also started watching the fifth season of Justified on Amazon Prime for free. As a family we watched a few episodes of Numb3rs.
I used up some extra milk I had that was getting close to the expiration date by making a batch of chocolate pudding from scratch. It was a yummy way to use it up before it soured.

Friday evening after work I went to Fred Meyer and restocked the empty crisper drawer using a $2 OFF coupon I received in the mail.
|My daughter found these in a clearance basket.|
We are stocked for the summer.
We had a movie night and watched free movies on Amazon.
Early Saturday morning I took the girls out to breakfast at one of our favorite old diners located in downtown Boise. It is pretty darn popular and you have to plan on waiting in line for a table but it's worth it.
On the way home we stopped at Cash & Carry to pick up some items on sale. I bought 50# of whole wheat flour for $13.44, a 25# bag of old fashioned oatmeal for $13.75 and a 5# bag of grated cheddar jack cheese for $13.48. I will be deducting these purchases from future grocery budgets as I won't be using the flour or oatmeal for awhile, but the price, especially on the flour was too good to pass up. Since I had a few extra dollars I decided to go ahead and make the investment now.
I went to Albertson's and picked up four dozen eggs on sale for 88¢ each.
I used up some sour milk I had saved and an apple that had gone a little soft by making a loaf of Apple Cinnamon Walnut Bread. A new recipe I'll be sharing with all of you very soon. I love this bread!
How thrifty were you last week?
