Last Week's Thrifty Moves

Sunday my oldest girl got home from her trip and boy was I happy to see her.  I sure missed her those five days she was gone.  And no robotics all week so I got a reprieve!  Which was really good because last week was all about cheerleading and the youngest had a pretty full schedule - two basketball games, practice and a competition.

Monday I went straight home from work and stayed home!  Nothing on our schedule that evening and it was Heaven!!  It's the little things I tell you.  I had even done my chores for the day in the morning before I left for work so other than fixing dinner my evening was free and clear.  Didn't do a dang thing either.  Oh wait, I did play with the chickens.  Loved it.  So did they.

I'm sure the cat thinks having the hens in the house is pretty nuts!

The rest of the week was a complete blur with so much going on it was crazy.  The cheer competition on Saturday was a lot of fun and my daughter's team won for best choreography which was pretty dang awesome!

Sometime in all of the week's busyness I did manage to sneak in some grocery shopping.  I found some good buys and even managed to get over to Cash & Carry to pick up some things I like to get there including a 5# bag of grated cheese that was on sale. for $10.97.

I made some refill solution for our foaming hand soap dispenser in the kitchen.  If it seems like I am always making refill solution it is because I am.  I wash my hands a lot so it is really good that I came up with a homemade solution to refill the dispensers and save some $$ in the process.

I added water to the last of a bottle of laundry detergent.  Gave it a good shake and had plenty of soap to wash two loads of laundry.

I hardboiled a half dozen eggs for some quick grab and go breakfasts and snacks.  I used one in a yummy Cobb salad I made as well.  That was a goooood salad!

Honestly, I can't think of anything else that I did.  Like I said it went by in a blur.  How was your thrifty week?
