March 8 to March 14, 2016
It seems like we spent a lot of time inside this week recovering from our adventures and avoiding the rain.
We did clean up the living room and set up our new-to-us couch. It is so nice. I can’t believe how lucky we were!
The sun did shine for a day. I took advantage of the solar energy to dry my first load of laundry on the clothesline. We also hauled some old boards down from the barn and made the first of 3 (4?) raised beds for this year’s garden.
I did spend a little money. I bought a couple of tickets to a local musical theatre production of Mary Poppins and treated my mom to an afternoon out. Of course, I can’t leave her house without her loading me down with gifts. This time they were all edible gifts – a dozen eggs from her hens, a couple of bananas that were about to turn that she didn’t want to deal with (hello banana bread!) and a box of frozen chicken breasts. All very much appreciated.
I bought myself a gift certificate for the groceries. I will continue to do this in the future because it really helped us stay on budget this week.
How was your week? What frugal tips do you use to save money at the grocery store?
