The kids were a lot of fun and so smart. Very well behaved.
I made bird suet this past week. I used the leftover lard I had from a new recipe I tried, frying chicken without flour. It didn't turn out the best but we ate it anyway.
I reused a large shopping bag for a trash bag,
We bought a ham at Meijer's for 88 cents a pound for Christmas. I believe they are on sale again this week. We also bought the grandson a new winter jacket with their santa bucks coupon this past week for 30% off.
I reorganized the pantry. You wouldn't think that was a frugal thing but now I know that have plenty of chicken soup and I won't need to buy more. Saves money on groceries!
I was able to get a free candy bar that JCPenny was handing out with a 30% percent off the total purchase coupon in it. They were already on sale so this made the gifts I was buying very affordable. As we walked out of the store a church had a table and wrapped the gifts I had bought for free. Such a nice time and I got my mall walking in that day too.
I forgot last week to say that we went through our local historical village with our car to see the lights. We all piled in the van and only paid $5.00 to drive through. It was so pretty and fun.
My Goals this week:
Finish wrapping presents (just a few more coming in the mail).
Clean out the spice cupboard and fridge.
Keep walking (the capitol had 91 steps in it so I considered that and one mall walking enough exercise last week)!
How did you save this past week?
