I downloaded a free sewing pattern for a dinosaur stuffed toy this past week to sew. I plan on using a unused flannel pillowcase that I have for material and I already have the stuffing. I love gardening but winter time is the time I catch up on crocheting and sewing. I also started crocheting some dish scrubbies to replenish my stash for the next year.Granddaughter was the one who excitedly cut out the pattern, so I kind of thought it was time to teach her how to sew. I got out the Singer toy sewing machine I bought at a garage sale for about $3.00 a couple of years ago. I was so hoping she would like it when she got old enough. Well, she is in love with the idea of sewing. So fun!
We took some pants back to a store because we picked up the wrong size (a farm store). Lucky thing we did, they said we were close to the 30 day mark and they don't take returns after that (even with a receipt).
While we were there I bought some Honey Buns -12 for $4.99. This saves a lot when the grandkids want a snack or a fast breakfast on the way to or from school.
Although I spent most of our grocery budget for the pantry challenge, I saved a lot. With the shortages and the prices going up I'm glad I went ahead and spent it.
You know, I didn't think Grandma's school would open back up again but we are back worse than where we were I believe. The case rate for their school for students and staff is so high they are going to start virtual again for a week. I suspect it will be two but we should hope for the best outcome. At least we all know what we are doing!
What are the ways you saved this past week?
