Last week went by so dang fast it was kind of crazy!
I mailed out a Christmas package using priority mail. I did the label online and even had it picked up from our door for free. That saved me a trip to the post office and standing in a long line.
I worked on some craft projects using supplies I already had on hand.
I purchased some recycled ink cartridges for our old printer and they work fabulously. I'm super excited about that. They were only $15.99 for both a color and a large capacity black cartridge, which is a really great price too.
I trimmed some greenery from our front yard to use to decorate our mantel.
I baked a nice loaf of homemade bread. It has been awhile since I've baked bread. Boy was it good!
I hosted a Christmas luncheon for my friends on Saturday. I made the entire meal out of items I already had on hand in our pantry refrigerator and freezer.
We wrapped Christmas gifts using supplies we already had in our stash.
I used money from my emergency fund to pay for some unexpected medical expenses. I'm sure glad I have that emergency fund to use when it is needed.
I had quite a bit of extra produce last week so the chickens got some "salads" to enjoy along with their regular feed.
I made and added new calendar pages to my day planner. I washed the cover beforehand so it is all ready to finish out the year and begin a new one.
How was your thrifty week?
