Despite being sick last week, and spending most of the week in bed, I did manage to do several things to save money.
First, I treated my cold with lots of water and rest, and good dose of Pinterest. (Why yes, I did pin several new things last week!) Meals were very simple and we had fruit salad twice as a main course, including once for dinner.
We accepted a free girls’ bicycle when it was offered to us by someone who had outgrown it.
I planted more seeds in the garden. These are seeds I had leftover from last year.
I cut open a sample tube of facial moisturizer and was able to get enough for another week’s worth from it.
I used a sample of conditioner to make 2 bottles of detangler. I had already used it once, so I had three batches all from one sample.
I made a batch of orange cleaner with orange peels and vinegar.
I received a dozen eggs from a friend who has chickens (this was from the service exchange). She said she can give me a dozen each week this month, which is a wonderful blessing.
I cut green onions from the garden.
I carefully dug seedlings in the garden, thinned and transplanted the thinned ones to other places in the garden.
I started some seeds indoors.
My oldest and my husband went to the National Archery Competition this week, where my daughter took second place in the state in the junior high girls’ division. She came home with her first trophy–a 30″ one!
Two days later they returned to watch the NFAA World Archery Festival, which was free to attend.
