Here are the ways we saved this past week: 




I took an early morning picture of what our world has been looking like the past few days.  I never measured but it's a good 7 to 9 inches after it has finally has stopped snowing.  If it stays cold we should have a pretty White Christmas. We have decided this afternoon to get out and enjoy it so we are taking the grandson sledding (free fun). 

Repaired the hole in the husband's pocket in his fleece jeans.  I first had to fish out all the change that went in between the layers! I put the change in to the piggy bank to save for our next vacation or No Spend January!  


Sorry about the pictures just getting used to the new camera.   Hope you get the idea though.

I made buttermilk from the buttermilk I already had.  I then used it to make biscuits and freeze them.  This took up the last of a bag of self-rising flour so I split the bag and laid it out flat so I could use the inside of it to roll the dough.  

We were able to get .20 cents off a gallon a gas at Kroger.  We filled up both cars.  

I took the Kroger survey again for more fuel points.  We  also bought pork loin for .99 a pound (Saturday only deal) and sliced it into pork chops to freeze. 

We were so busy a couple of days clearing off snow or shopping, that we decided to just have sandwiches and soup instead of what was on the menu.  Saved us from going out to eat.  

My Goals for this week:

Hopefully mail out my sister's present!  I'm late. 

Wrap the rest of the presents. 

Have fun things prepared to keep the grandchildren happy and busy while they are on their Christmas break. I love Rhonda's idea for the easy faux gingerbread houses.
