My Frugal Ways this Past Week 4/23/17!

Here are the ways I've saved this past week: 

I was able to make ahead two Cookie Sacks for Christmas Gifts yesterday. This only took with cutting maybe 10 minutes at the most.  Since I have been making them they have really come in handy for last minute gifts.  I found the spoons at a after Christmas sale. 

Used the eggs we dyed on Easter to make potato salad and deviled eggs.  I also ate some for breakfast.

The neighbor and I trimmed the grape vines in the backyard.  They were terribly overgrown.  I used my newfound knowledge to help trim them.   I hope they live!  I just keep saying to myself over and over what the instructor said "you can't kill them."   I hope he is right.  We will share the grape harvest (if there is one).  

We sold more things online.  This has been somewhat frustrating but for what we have it's better than a garage sale.   Patience I think is the key.  

JC Penny was handing out $10 off $10 coupon and my husband and I went early to get one.   We both found things we needed.

We went to a Earth day/Arbor Day celebration for the kids at our nature preserve. The theme was the Lorax.  I received a free elderberry bush to plant at home.  

I bought a whole pork loin for $6.00 and we grilled enough for 3 meals yesterday.   I froze one and we will have another one today.  

What was on the dinner table last week:  

Monday       Leftover from when we went out to eat

Tuesday       Ham sandwiches, potato salad, and deviled eggs (made with dyed Easter eggs)

Wednesday   Out to eat

Thursday      Hamburgers and potato chips

Friday          Hot dogs and Baked Beans

Saturday      BBQ Porkchops, Mashed potatoes, and corn

Sunday         BBQ Porkchops, salad, and bread

My goals for next week:


Clean guest room-I'm only half done

Keep putting items up for sale.

Plant flowers and mulch trees.  


Read and review a book
