I harvested two kinds of lettuce, Swiss chard, and Meyer lemons from the garden.
I made a triple batch of laundry soap.
Albertson’s offered me $5 off a $5 purchase on the app. They had eggs on sale with a digital coupon (limit 2 dozen) for $0.97 and lettuce for $0.97. I also bought celery and cucumbers, spending $4.83 total. My husband was offered a free frozen pizza on the app, so we went together and he picked up a frozen pizza. We combined this trip with a trip to Sam’s Club, keeping cold things in a cooler in the back of our van.
I made pancakes, biscuits (with scrambled eggs and cheese), Spanish rice, French bread, spaghetti, oatmeal (I buy oats in bulk from Winco), pumpkin chocolate chip bread (using pumpkins from the garden), and crepes.
I cooked a turkey from the freezer.
I received my water bill. I compared it to last winter, before we put the landscaping back in (when we weren’t watering most of the backyard).
It was only six dollars more than last year.
So for six dollars a month, I am growing quite a few things! I definitely think that is money well spent!
