They went to the local nature preserve for classes the last part of the week and had a great time. The total cost for 2 classes for the youngest and 3 for the oldest was $25.00. It was money well spent. The oldest learned how to make slime, filter water for survival, make a shelter out of sticks, had a picnic, saw many frogs and turtles in the ponds, and learned all about rock formations. The youngest had story hour, made crafts, saw the frogs and turtles, and had a egg drop.
What a wonderful memorable week they had.
We went to two estate sales yesterday (Sat) and I spent $25.00 total. It was the second day of both sales so it was 50% off. Some of the things I bought were a yogurt maker (works great tried last night) for $3.00, clothes, towels, Tupperware, and my most craziet purchase ever at an estate sale was pop (soda) for my youngest daughter. She was so happy! I bought 4 six packs for $4.00. The great thing about this deal is for every six pack I will receive 60 cents back in bottle returns so my total cost for each six pack was 40 cents.
It was finally dry enough that I was able to get in the very back yard so I could trim both apple trees and the blackberry bushes. Probably should have done this earlier but it was very wet and I would have sunk. Well, actually I did sink the first time I tried going back the first part of the week. My shoe got stuck and came off. I had to hop to get back to it on one foot and them pull with all my might to get it out. Yeah, I'm pretty sure someone had to have seen that.
Till this last rain I was able to start composting kitchen scraps again. The compost bins are in the wet part of the property too.
I bought peanut butter on sale this past week and stocked up.
What are the ways you saved this past week?
