August 8, 2016 to August 14, 2016
My frugal accomplishments were largely due to the generosity of those around me. I am so lucky to have the friends I do.
I helped the land lady next door move some furniture around. She brought me over a box of canning jars and two small garbage cans.
One co-worker cleaned out her closet and I took home a few shirts. Another cleaned out her cupboards and I was the happy recipient of a bag of rice flour and a container of xanthan gum.
I recycled my bottles at work and used the proceeds to pay for half a paint set to make a Christmas gift.
I picked a box of pears, I think I picked them at the right time. I have set them out to ripen and I will try canning them sometime next week.
No canning this week. I did however, buy a very large pork lion from work for an excellent price. It will be cut up and froze for meals this winter.
How about you? Leave a comment below and tell me about your week and how your friends help you out.
