Last week was pretty low key and quiet for us, which was kind of nice for a change. Not a whole lot happened around our place.
We prepared our meals using things we already had on hand in the freezer, refrigerator and pantry. We had quite a bit of produce accumulated too. I did not do any grocery shopping, or any other shopping for that matter.
I used a rubber spatula to clean every last bit of mayonnaise out of the jar which yielded enough for two and half sandwiches. I then washed out the jar to save and reuse for food storage for camping.

22 years is long enough to put up with this!
The best thing to happen last week was our friend came back by and put in the new light/fan/heater in the upstairs bathroom. We fondly bid farewell to the last piece of 1979 that remained in our house. Looks so nice and works great too. I am so incredibly happy about it.

Works better too!
I used up every last bit of hand lotion I had in a bottle I had set upside down.
We used our fireplace as needed to take the chill off the house, but for the most part we really didn't need any heat.
We gave our kitchen scraps to our happy little flock of chickens. I composted coffee grounds and egg shells.
I worked a little overtime, about an hour and a half.
Kind of crazy, but that was pretty much it. How was our thrifty week?
