Tuesday afternoon I popped into Dollar Tree to see if they had any new Christmas craft supplies and they did! I picked up snowflake embellishments, bells, a package of glitter glue, another pair of red fuzzy gloves and a pair of red fuzzy socks. I had earmarked $25 for craft supplies this year and so far I'm staying within my little budget.

Saturday evening was the band competition. I had bought my tickets ahead and saved $2 plus the band got a share of the proceeds that way. We ate a late lunch just before we left to save on concessions as they are extremely expensive at the stadium. Don't tell anyone but I also snuck in a couple of water bottles too. It really bothers me how much they charge for a small bottle of water. They should be ashamed of themselves.

We also did the other usual thrifty things too. I washed out a two gallon Ziploc bag to reuse. We gave the chickens lots of kitchen scraps. The neighbors let us use their compost bins again this week to fill up with branches and set at the curb. And that was that.
How was your thrifty week?
