Sunday I made two loaves of oat bread and two loaves of whole wheat. The girls ate almost an entire loaf of oat bread right out of the oven for lunch. I also used half a dozen Easter eggs to make a big bowl of egg salad to go with the fresh bread. It was pretty darn good.
I cleaned out and reorganized my bedroom closet purging several items, including five pairs of shoes, that I set aside to donate. In re-organizing a couple of bins I had in there I was able to eliminate one of them completely as I had used up most of what was stored inside. Whoo hooo!
After work on Wednesday I went to JoAnn Fabrics to get more white muslin and use a 40% OFF coupon that a friend gave me and it expired that day. Four yards for $10.15! While there I was looking at the quilter's cutting mattes and the clerk informed me they were going on sale for 50% OFF the very next day. Needless to say I had no problem waiting a day. I headed back on the way home from work Thursday and picked one up. And a ruler too, also half price.
I treated the girls to dinner out at our favorite pizza buffet restaurant near our house. I used a gift card a friend had given me at Christmas. No money out of pocket and I still have a little left on the card for another time.
I did an online store survey for Fred Meyer and earned an extra 50 bonus reward points toward a fuel discount.
I didn't do any grocery shopping this week!
I did buy some lighter weight cardigan sweaters, however. I found a really nice black one on sale for $17.88 at ShopKo. I wore it and I love it. The right weight, the sleeves are long enough (I really struggle with that), soft and it fits me really nice. By Thursday I had convinced myself it was okay to go and get the royal blue one. I've always wanted one in that color. I checked out and was handed a $10 OFF $10 coupon. I went right back and bought another one in fuschia for $7.88! Now I have a sweaters in every color to compliment my wardrobe. I won't need to buy another sweater for a looooooooooong time. J
I relisted four crocheted baby afghans for sale in my Etsy shoppe.
We fed our kitchen scraps to our chickens. I sold two dozen eggs to a friend and a dozen to our next door neighbor. The girls have been super productive this week!
I washed out two gallon size Ziploc bags to reuse.
How thrifty was your week?
