Fun with Gardening Frugal Friday 5/27/22

 We have been mixing fun with gardening this week.  


We went to a huge car show by us Sunday Morning.   We had a great time looking at all the old cars and trucks.  So funny we always wish we could have saved many of our cars because they are now classics!

Entrance fee was free and we ate a free grilled hot dog given to us by the local furniture store. 


Husband plowed the garden one more time then it was ready to plant. In between the rains here we have planted my cabbage plants and marigolds from the green house, greasy green beans (saved seeds), and some red and Yukon gold potatoes in the garden.  We have a lot more work to do.  I think the vegetable garden gets bigger every year.


I paid $14.97 for a flat of flowers and made three flower pots out of it. These are my own style of course you can pick what you want.  So around $5.00 for a pot.  So save your pots and fill them again next year!   I know there is only two...I was a bit too proud and dropped one.  It's looks sad but it's making progress in the recovery room. 

Although I haven't found a lot of meat in the Flashfood app, we have bought milk through the Flashfood App. for a $1.79 a gallon, lunchmeat,  and Tide.   If you would like to try Flashfood my referral code is VICK36PZH.  If you first purchase is over $10 we both get $5.00 in rewards.  

How did you save money last week?

Don't Judge Other People's Cart and the Menu Plan for 5/24/22!

 



So, we decided to go to Sam's on Sunday where we have been able to get our low carb bread for about $3.50 a loaf.    Listen when you buy a loaf of bread for $3.50 a loaf, you eat the heel.  Anyway the shelf was empty.  Second Sam's and still no bread for us.    

It wasn't a wasted trip though, we went ahead and bought everything else we needed though while we were there.  Like their roasted chicken and they had a good price on the strawberries.  That's where I ran into him, the produce department.  The older gentlemen (older than me) in a motorized wheelchair as I was picking out my strawberries.  He blocked my path and said why did they move the produce dept. (like I worked there).  I hadn't even paid attention to that, but that made me look and I realized that they had temporally moved it across the aisle.  His wife and him seemed really upset by that.  Some people can't handle change I guess, even temporary. 

Before I could move away, he looked in my cart and said, I wouldn't buy that chicken at all, what a waste of money (a $5 chicken already cooked).  I said really, and he explained how there was hardly any chicken left after you deboned it.  I said oh, ok.   I thought to myself he doesn't know, I could have have a family of 8 at home and we could all debone that chicken in one meal! LOL

Then he started talked about my strawberries I had in my hand and said they would have no taste because they were so big.  Well.

I left him after that, just smiled, and went on my merry way.  I don't remember, but I think I said two words in the whole conversation.  Sometimes that's the best. 

I don't judge other people's cart.  I'm not sure about their situation and usually I'm in my own little world, looking for my deal. I've heard so many people talk about well she was on food stamps and bought this or look at all that pop they bought, you know that's not good for them.  It's none of my business really. They are getting what they need for that moment.  

As I was in line telling my husband the story, the lady behind us heard it and said she was buying 2 chickens for her two dogs.  She said it was cheaper than dog food.  I know nothing about dog nutrition but this sounds so smart.  

My advice: don't go to Sam's on Sunday.

FYI:  I found the bread at Meijer, it's not as cheap though.  I'm going back for the pop I found on sale by the way.  


Menu for this Week:

Monday              Breakfast for dinner, sausage, hash browns, eggs, and toast

Tuesday              The chicken we bought at Sam's, mashed potatoes, and green beans

Wednesday         Work done on house so we will just grab something out

Thursday            Chicken and Dumplings

Friday                 Chicken salad

Saturday              Grilling out (no rain in the forecast) hamburgers. hotdogs, and whatever else we can find.

Sunday                Some of the grilled out food!  


Breakfast:  there were 3 sausage patties left from dinner yesterday so I made three breakfast burritos this morning with 2 and I will warm up the other sausage for me in the morning.  We will also have oats and fried bologna the rest of the week.

Keeping up With the House and Eating less Meat 5/20/22

 





I planted some of my marigolds from the green house in one of my planters yesterday.  I'm going to plant some Zinnia seed in the other one.  We haven't planted the main garden yet, I'm glad we waited because we are expected to get a lot of rain this afternoon (this happens just about every year).  The seeds and potatoes would have rotted.

We ate less meat last week.  We split two steaks we had bought from the Flashfood app awhile ago so that three people could have some.  We also used the left over taco meat in the Chili last night.  I'm glad I bought meat while I could from Flashfood awhile ago, I rarely see any meat on the app anymore in my area.

It's going to be hot before the rain, so I'll be hanging up a load of laundry outside today.  

Not much going on this week except keeping up with the house.

The Price of Flowers and My Menu plan for 5/17/22

 

My White Bleeding Heart in my Garden


The Price of Flowers

Pretty soon we will be going to buy our flowers at one of the greenhouses around here.   I grew a lot of plants but my little greenhouses cannot hold everything.  Besides the daughter wants to buy me some for my Mother's day present!

For a  flat of  annual flowers,  prices can range from $14.97 to $17.97 around here, according to one of my local Facebook group.  I have to figure out the cost of gas if I want to go to the least expensive route because my greenhouse closes to me is the highest.  

Are their flowers any different?  I don't believe so..but they might have the prettiest or they may have varieties no one else has.  It's a dilemma that we will have to figure out this weekend.  I think we will go to the one closer first than figure out what we want to do.  Flower day yay!  

By the way we don't usually plant till Memorial Day Weekend but I will look at the long range forecast to see if I can plant or not.  I can always keep them in the garage if I think it's too cold.  

Here is what's on the menu this week:

Monday         Chili Cheese dogs

Tuesday         Tacos (I have a taco bell kit)

Wednesday    Steak and Potatoes

Thursday       Leftovers

Friday            Spaghetti

Saturday        Hamburgers on the Grill

Sunday          Grilled chicken, mashed potatoes, and corn

What's on your menu?
