We picked up a bike in the trash (ok he picked up the bike but I was in the car directing him). Husband will fix the tire without a problem.
We've picked about 4 quarts of strawberries total (a lot were just eaten so fast). I've saved maybe two quarts. I think by Friday the sprained foot will be better enough to make a small batch of jam. I've never made jam with my own strawberries so I'm excited even if I only get 2 small jars. It's been a great year for strawberries.
I've picked chives, green onions, garlic scapes, thyme, and mint out of the garden.
We were gifted 7 full bottles of shampoo, two bags of sanitary napkins, and brand new razors by a friend who was cleaning out her bathroom pantry. So very nice for her to think of us.
We did go to Meijer's to pick up a flashfood order and I'm so thankful for those motorized wheelchairs. Our Meijer is a big store. Oh, let me tell you about that order. Well my order was Kool-Aid Kool bursts for the kids, a bag of gold fish crackers, can of chicken noodle soup, and a big container of greek yogurt. It was all damaged or opened when I got there except for the yogurt that was in the cooler. I told the service desk and they said they were so sorry and to make sure that I ask for a refund from Flashfood (already given). Then they told me to keep the yogurt and gave me a $10 gift card for my time. I was so surprised, they were just so nice. A unexpected blessing for sure!
How did you save money last week?
