Okay, It's 7 am in the morning but really it's 6. Time change really kills me. So what time did I get up this morning? It was 4 but really it was 5. I went to bed at 11 but it was really 12. This did not work out for me at all. Someone explain again why do we do this?
Spring I think is also trying to blow in today. I hope it succeeds. We have went what seems like weeks without sun, so it's good to see it coming back. When I sleep longer, I dream about gardening.
Here are the ways I saved over the last couple of weeks:
We went to a estate sale with the granddaughter. I warned her not to touch anything and she was so good. She was so excited to find toys and just expected I would buy them (I did). We found her 3 porcelain dolls in a wardrobe box ($8.00) and 2 pairs of princess shoes ($3.00). She refused to put on her boots and wore the shoes home. I think her Mom carried her through the snow to the car.
I found a chair for my antique sewing machine and he found some tools of course. We were very happy with this company as they tried to work with you on prices the first day of the sale.
Using my food sealer I made trail mix for future road trips. I cleaned and reused a bag I had sealed some cookies in. I found out how to make these small bags on you tube. Some people are so smart.
I received my coupon for recycling my ink from Staples. These always come in and expire before I need ink for the printer. I decided to spend the $6.00 coupon on two bottles of dish detergent and only paid a dollar more.
It seemed like it was just a few days later I realized I was out of printer paper ( I blame it on the sickness). Determined to get a deal but realizing printing was hard without printer paper, I started turning over all the things I printed but really didn't need (I call this printing remorse). A few days later I felt like I had struck gold when a $10 off $10 Staples came in the mail. I immediately went to the store, bought two packs of paper, and paid just another $1.00.
I finished knitting my first scarf! I almost quit and tried something easier because it was taking so long but in the end I stuck with it. I must have ripped out a million rows. Although it's not perfect, I hope with lots of practice to get better. It's amazing how warm it is.
For those who are new here, I've learned how to knit from You Tube videos. Everything you want to know about knitting is there, casting on and off, changing colors, getting better tension, etc. No expensive classes were needed just lots of practice. I still need lots of practice!
I made two pizzas (low carb) and froze one.
My Goals for this Week:
Finish crocheting a baby blanket.
Get back to sewing the princess dress. I finished the bodice before I got to where I decided rest was probably the best.
Clean the rest of the fridge.
What are the ways you saved this week?
