I made a hamburger stew to help us stay warm after we cleared off the snow. Well, after he cleared the snow with his plow. I tried to shovel the patio but determined it was heart attack snow and ran inside. I did help clear off the cars though so I wasn't totally useless, ha ha.
We received a coupon for a free pizza in the mail from Hungry Howie's for his birthday. This came in handy one day this past week when we got busy.
I made yogurt.
I earned enough points from Old Orchard Juice rewards to order a hat for my husband.
I sent in some clothes to Thred Up and received approximately $5.00 that went into my bank account.
The grocery shopping budget went out the window when we made a trip to the Amish store. We stocked up on meats and went way over (we failed the test). We are doing great on the rest of our No Spend January so I'm just going to finish it out right the rest of the time. Kind of act like it never happened. I think any amount saved is great. Don't give up!
Cleaned out the bathroom cupboard and found lots of dental floss so I was able to take that off my list to buy this week.
Goals for next week:
Keep within the food budget.
Finish cleaning out the bathroom cupboard (who knows what I might find). Then, I want to clean out the spice cupboard. I'm getting in the Spring cleaning mode I guess.
How did you save this past week?
