My Frugal Ways This Past Week 2/28/17!

Vegetable Tray

I cleaned and chopped the vegetables in the refrigerator and put them on a tray.  I hope this will stem the tide of throwing old vegetables away.  Thanks to Rhonda for the encouragement!

Strawberry Muffins

I bought 10 quarts of strawberries for .99 a quart.  I made strawberry syrup,  strawberry muffins, and then froze the rest. 

Pop and the grandkids playing with play dough

The grand kids were over and we had the homemade pizza I put in the freezer.  So good to be able to just spend time with them. This picture of pop and the kids was from a few weeks ago.  I'm still finding play dough in the carpet!  

Made bean burritos from the leftover soup beans and froze them for a meal or two later.  

We needed a new console for our truck.  Previously, we had a homemade wood box console that was covered in a quilt. We decided we needed a new one but had trouble finding one that would fit the small space.  I bought some batting, nails,  and leather like material at Joann's with a coupon and we recovered the box.   It's not perfect but we are both happy with our work (he helped). Total cost $20.00. 

What was on the table last week:

Monday              Open faced roast beef sandwiches covered with gravy, mashed potatoes, and corn.

Tuesday              Pork chops and soup beans

Wednesday         Chicken and dumplings

Thursday            Baked chicken (from Sam's)

Friday                 Out to eat

Saturday             Pizza (homemade freezer meal)

Sunday               Lasagna and garlic bread (freezer homemade meal)

My goals for this week:

Fix my Kindle is the #1.  Most of the books I review are downloaded on Kindle, so it's very important.  It will not connect to the internet.  I've tried all the suggestions that I know to do while at the same time finding out that that devices can make me cry.  I just don't know what to do about it.  Hopefully I figure out something soon.  

I'm still working on my husband's side of the closet.  I have finished the pants and I just need to finish the tshirts and organize a little.  I will then be done!

I hope to stop procrastinating on my homework for the class I'm taking.   I tend to wait till the night before and get a little stressed out.


Write a book review.  Next up is Annie's Recipe by Lisa Jones Baker.  This sounds like a wonderful Amish Romance.  So glad I've got a hardcover!
