Frugal Endeavours

This is how I saved money this week.

It was a long weekend here in sunny British Columbia and a spendy one at that. The purchases were planned but it still hurts to see all that money going out.

I did accomplish a few frugal things. Several loads of laundry were hung out on my clothes horse to take advantage of the sunshine. I added some languishing celery and bell peppers to my dehydrator. I needed some bobbins for my embroidery floss for a new projects so I made some. I think they turned out quite well as they are nice and sturdy.  Perhaps I will try my hand at writing a tutorial…

Our neighbour was called out of town on family business and gave us food from her fridge that would not last until her return. I took care of her cats and garden while she was away and she thanked me with a large bottle of home harvested maple syrup from family friends she visited while she was back east. Yummm.

Hope you all have an enjoyable weekend!

  1. you did great on the blog. what did I learn from my Mom back then and still try and use, my arm in the front seat for a seat belt, I still reach in front of my grandson to protect in case of a crash. He is wearing his seat belt. But old habits die hard. 😉 Laura Young from the Tea House
