Here are the ways I've saved this past week:
I've been using grass clippings for mulch in the vegetable garden. Today I will be getting more when he mows the yard. This is working well so far but next year I will start saving it earlier in the Spring. I need a lot more!
Sometimes you have to try again:
I bought a couple of pumpkin plants half off at our local green house. I planted them in the empty spot where the corn never came up.
I took the granddaughter to free story hour at the library. We also signed up for the summer reading challenge (including me). They received a tote bag for their books and free parking passes to the county fair when we signed up.
Later in the week we went to the local nature preserve for a dinosaur program aimed at both their ages.
Bought strawberries at Aldi's for a $1.00 a quart and made strawberry jam. I used the sugar I bought on sale for .99 a bag awhile ago.
We sold two items that I had given up on. Just out of the blue two people called and bought them. Never give up I guess. So nice!
What was on the dinner table last week
Monday Cheeseburgers and hotdogs
Wednesday Baked beans and summer sausage
Thursday Hot dogs and chili
Friday Grilled cheese and soup (this was a busy day and we needed something quick, It was not very filling but it was okay)
Saturday Out to eat
Sunday Grilled pork chops, Green beans, Mustard Greens, and cornbread.
My Goals for This Week:
Harvest and dry oregano.
Work in the garden (keep killing weeds).
What ways have you saved this past week?
