I made a bottle of maple pancake syrup and a pint of chocolate ice cream syrup.
I sold a scarf and ear warmer set to one of my blog readers. Thank you very much!
The only grocery shopping I did was to pick up two gallons of milk at $1.99 each.
I picked my first blueberry. It was delicious!
I went through my pantry and pulled some stuff to make a big bowl of trail mix for us to snack on last week. Peanuts, multi grain Cheerios, Craisins, raisins and M&Ms.
Since appetites are a little off with the summer heat I made a nice veggie platter and kept it in the refrigerator for snacking along with a variety of salad dressings for dipping. We also kept our Brita water pitcher full and drank a lot of ice water.
Since I don't have a Costco card I ordered our Kirkland brand vitamins online through Amazon. They shipped for free in two days and I got the discounted price for being a Prime member. I think that made them less than at the store.
I stopped at Walgreens and picked up three packs of sugarless gum on sale for 69¢ each. I used a $1.00 OFF coupon making my final price 1.07 plus tax. I kept one pack for myself and put the other two in my stocking stuffer stash.
Also at Walgreens I bought four sleeveless undershirts on sale for $2.oo each. I plan to pair them with some sleep shorts for the girls to have as summer pajamas.
I printed off six online grocery coupons from Coupons.com.
I took the girls to the dollar movie Tuesday night. We saw Mall Cop 2. They thought it was pretty funny.
I set up the toaster oven from our old RV in the garage so we can bake things without heating up the house.
I composted coffee grounds, tea bags, the core from a head of cauliflower, egg shells and onion skins.
We took advantage of the cooler nights and mornings and opened up the doors and windows. I also did my watering at this time as well.
I renewed a couple listings on Craiglist for items I have up for sale.
I splurged and bought four used, but in very good condition, DVD sets of Burn Notice, our favorite TV show ever! Seasons 1 through 4. I found them on eBay for $20.50 and free shipping. While little missy is still recuperating I thought we'd have a marathon over 4th of July weekend.
I watched a few TV shows online for free.
How thrifty were you last week?
