I harvested red noodle beans, Armenian cucumbers, Asian pears, and Bartlett Pears from the garden.
I read an e-book from the library: The Alice Network, a historical fiction piece about female spies in WWI.
I needed more garbage bags for the kitchen trash. I went to the store, where everything had been repackaged into smaller sizes. I took out my phone and used the calculator to determine the price per bag of the different store-brand options to make sure what I thought would be the least expensive was actually the least expensive. It was a good lesson for my son, who was with me. He pointed out how we were literally throwing money in the trash by buying garbage bags. (I buy the self-tie Up and Up brand 13-gallon trash bags from Target, for those who were wondering. They come out at 12 cents each. My trash can is a 5-gallon bucket under the kitchen sink).
We gave two sons a haircut.
Winter told me that she bought herself two pairs of winter boots from Ebay for less than $15 a pair, brand-new! She’ll be well-set to keep warm this winter.
What did you do to save money last week?
