I dug mache (corn salad) that had self-seeded in my garden in a clump and moved it to more places in the garden so that each one can grow larger.
I did the same with self-seeded lettuce plants.
I planted paperwhites that had multiplied in my garden into pots that I already had.
I made a triple batch of laundry soap.
My son, who works at the grocery store, texted me to let me know they had Lindt chocolate for 90 cents a bag, and asked if I wanted any (regular price is $9 each). I said yes, and I went to his work to see what other Christmas clearance was available. I will use the chocolates for the children for Valentine’s Day. I also bought graham cracker and chocolate pie crusts on clearance for $0.33 each, 4 white taper candles for $0.15 each, Scotch tape, bags of Hershey’s miniatures for $0.40 a bag (regular price $4), bags of peanut-butter M&M’s for $0.30 each, and two sets of measuring spoons, two cookie scoops, and two candy thermometers on clearance that I will gift to the next two oldest children at home when they move out (it is time for me to start putting together items for them as I find them).
One of my daughters went through her clothing and decided what things she no longer wanted. I ended up with a skirt, a blouse, a cardigan, and a dress for myself. Anything her youngest sister didn’t like and that I didn’t want we put in bags for donation (or a garage sale; we are still going through items in the house).
