Last Week's Frugal Accomplishments

June Arrangement The Prudent Homemaker

My son and I repaired a leak in the garden.

I signed up for a free online mini-class.

I used a $15 off coupon at Joann fabrics on top of purchasing items on sale.

I collected shower-warm-up water and used it to water potted plants in the garden.

We picked blackberries and apricots from the garden. I cut green onions from the garden.

I mended a hole in a pillowcase and a hole in a pair of shorts.


What did you do to save money last week?

    Here are my frugal accomplishments for the week:
    * I went to the library to check out books for myself and some for my granddaughter. (She is visiting over the 4th of July.)
    * Cashed in points for a $50.00 grocery gift card. I will use this to cover the extra expenses over the 4th of July week.
    *Used and repurposed leftovers to elimanate food waste.
    * Hung laundry to dry.
    *Worked on my small patio garden. I am growing heirloom tomatoes. I started them from seeds that I saved from last year. I am also growing yellow beans, peppers, chives, and flowers.
    *Saved water from cooking vegetables to water my patio garden.
    *Planned and cooked all meals at home.

    Thank you all who share your ideas. I love catching up with them on Sundays before church.

    This week was my daughter's 13th birthday. Fairly simple affair; gifts were actually 2 souveneirs (a shirt and a personalized pocketknife) we had bought on travels; 2 clothing items bought from a company going out of business; and then tickets to the Lion King that we got through discount through the scouts. She had 2 friends over for swimming at the neighborhood pool and cake; no one noticed that we didn't get ice cream.

    Feeling very blessed with "only" a $500 car repair. I noticed my car making a strange noise and took it to the shop; a hose had burst and if I had driven a few more miles there potentially could have been catastrophic damage to my engine!

    Meals this week have been largely from the freezer and garden; trying to hold any extra spending. We did buy burgers and chips for the birthday dinner to cook out at home and the splurge was lamb brats from the farmers market (which were twice as expensive as I had imagined, but they did give me a dozen eggs too.)

    Used coupon at joanns and my Girl Scout discount for birthday gifts for a twin's party; they have lots of kids kits on clearance right now so this may be a good time for folks to stock up.

    There will be lots of swimming pool time to stay cool this coming week. Praying our AC is not going down (we are in a heat emergency here).
