I sewed a seam that had come undone on a dress.
I took apart an old, broken earring to which I had lost the match over 20 years ago. I added a jump ring and a chain and turned it into a necklace.
I looked online on how to rip a CD to my computer. I was able to rip a cd that I bought last year at a garage sale for a dollar to MP3 format. I’ll be converting some more cds after this! I don’t own a stereo and our dvd player is no longer working. I can move these to the computer for easy listening (without having to constantly change cds). Plus, my computer is usually on during the day, and the speakers are decent, so the only extra electricity I am using is to turn the speakers on when we want to listen to music (I usually have them off) rather than having to turn on the television and the dvd player, which is what we did before.
I harvested one zucchini from the garden. I also cut basil, parsley, rosemary, and chives from the garden. I picked a few lemons from the garden.
I made inexpensive presents all week.
I bought 25 dozen eggs for .99 a dozen. I also bought 3 Lindt candy bars (my favorite) for $1.49 each. I used 3 $2 off coupons for the candy (all Internet printables), which made the candy and a dozen and a half of the eggs free.
I purchased 2 small turkeys (hens at 16 pounds each; I could not find any toms) for .59 a pound, and 10 pounds of frozen sweet peas for $9.45. On top of that, I used a $5 off store coupon.
My niece gave me some small black velvet scraps.
Liberty was invited to a birthday party. I pulled something out of the gift box that I had bought several years ago for her to take as a gift.
I used some free beauty samples that I had.
I planted some seeds in the garden.
What did you do to save money last week?
