My canning shelves are just about full this year. Such a great year for the garden. Just to explain a little bit about this picture.
*The cans are mostly three deep.
*I have my cans of salsa from this year on the same shelf as the cans of tomatoes that were left over from last year. I keep my canned goods for two years.
*I have made 14 jars of sauerkraut so far that are not on the shelves. They will be stored at my daughters house in a dark corner of her basement.
*On the bottom shelf is a row of canned peaches I found for a good price at a store up north. Peaches are high here. At the farmers market this past week a half peck of peaches was $8.50.
* Right next to the peaches are canisters of my husband's favorite drink -Country time Lemonade. We bought a ton of it on sale for .99 a piece.
We stayed around the home mostly this week to get things done. We took the grandson to the local playground and bought him a Mcdonald's ice cream. He was just happy to be with us.
Home and Car Repairs:
We had a storm last week come through and it blew the backyard swing through the garage window. Husband with the help of a neighbor replaced both windows on the garage for $150.00. The windows were old and cheap so it was good to have new ones.
The swing is now away from the windows....
We also have had to repair a car. Most of the work my husband can do but when it requires it to be hoisted in the air he gets it done at a local shop. By calling around he was able to get it done for $100.00 less than most quotes.
What ways have you saved money this week?
