Man can I grow weeds!
Leftover roast and a bunch of leftover vegetables became beef barley soup along with homemade whole wheat biscuits for our Sunday meal. I got up early and assembled everything in the slow cooker and let it go on low until it was time to eat. Perfect meal on a damp and windy day.
Monday, after picking up my youngest at school, I stopped into the dollar store to pick up a few things I wanted for the motorhome. I am super excited to share with you what has caused me to make three trips to Dollar Tree in the past week. Watch for those posts in the coming weeks.
|Did I mention the chicken curtains hanging up in Laverne|
The girls thought that was the reason I bought her - ha, ha!
We were down to our last sheet of copy paper so I used my $10 voucher coupon from ShopKo to pick up a new ream as well as a replacement red T-shirt to replace the one that was worn and faded and is now relegated to my painting and change the oil on the truck T-shirt.
I used a text coupon to treat the girls to dinner out at one of our favorite restaurants for less than $20.
I picked a huge pile of dandelion greens out of our yard for the chickens. They really loved that treat.
Saturday I ran errands. First stop was Walmart to return a couple things I didn't need and pick up a few I did. Then the mall to pick up a couple items at JC Penney and use my $10 OFF a $10 purchase. Because both items I selected were $5 each I didn't pay a penny out of pocket. Yaay!
We stopped at the Franz bakery to load up on bagels and whole wheat bread. I spent $8. Lastly, a quick stop into Fred Meyer to get a key made and pick up a gallon of milk for the girls. I also picked up bananas, apples, potatoes and a couple packages of stir fry veggies. The stir fry veggies were on markdown.
I used the dregs of the metallic spray paint to give the ash tray in the motorhome a little face lift.
How was your thrifty week?
