Our mind is saying Spring but the seasons keep jumping around right now. We are doing all we can outside on the good days, when that snow isn't flying around. You know though we have been lucky that it seems to melt in one day, so that helps a lot.
Here are the ways I saved this past week:
|I just noticed the grass is getting greener!
Found two lawn chairs in the neighbors trash. These are perfect for watching the grand kids in the back yard. Our previous two chairs broke so it was amazing these were just waiting for me to grab them up. Savings of about $30.00!
I planted lettuce and green onions in my grow bag. The lettuce came from the winter sown jugs. I bought this bag at a garage sale and thought I would try it out. The garden is way too wet to even think about planting there yet.
Staples sent me another $10 off $10 coupon. I bought Starbucks coffee K-cups for about $2.00.
I was able to buy butter for $1.99 a pound at Aldi's this past week. I now have 12 pounds in the freezer.
I used the rest of the grilled hamburgers that no one ate last week and made a hamburger stew. I then added a can of beans to make the stew stretch one more day.
We celebrated a birthday this past week. Granddaughter had a great time helping me mix the cake. She is just all about cracking those eggs.
We sold an item this past week. We will have more outdoor toys that the grandchildren have outgrown to sell soon. We don't tell them because they would want them forever even if they are too big for them. They never seem to think about them after they are gone. ha ha!
Goals for this Week:
Help husband to clean the wood pile (this didn't get done last week -that snow happened on the day we could do it instead).
Finish Spring cleaning the guest bedroom.
What are the ways you were able to save money last week?
