My Frugal Ways this Past Week 1/29/17!

We've been making our own half and half again this week. 

I ate breakfast and drink coffee at the Master Gardening class on Thursday morning. The class is in charge of bringing snacks and they have been great so far. On the flip side, husband when left on his own enjoyed Tim Horton's coffee and donuts with his spending money!😃

Husband nailed back together our little cabinet that holds the washing detergent.  It's on it's last legs though, so this is my garage sale list for the Spring.  

I used the rest of the french toast fixings to make enough for the next few days.  I just store them in the refrigerator and microwave them for a minute the next day.  

I made turkey broth from the turkey we had last week. 

I was able to buy another $5 gift card from Swagbucks for IHOP.   I now have two and hope to enjoy a breakfast date soon.   Their senior meals are great!  

The ways I've prepared my house this week (thanks to The Working Pantry):

Starting filling up milk cartons full of water for storage and for empty spots in the freezer.

Sorted the medicine cabinet.  We need some more bandages and pepto bismol.   I plan to make a trip to the dollar store soon.  

Went through the batteries we have. We are good with all sizes. Good to know.

I have been working on putting pictures in my photo albums/scrapbooks.   I've found this will take some time.  I haven't done this in a couple of years.  It was so hard to look at pictures for awhile.   


Write a book review.
