September 20, 2016 to September 27, 2016
The week began with our summer vacation. We spent a night away from home at a the Ainsworth hot springs. We brought a cooler full of snacks to eat along the way and instead of going out for dinner.
Our morning began with morning coffee at a near by provincial park: http://explorebcparks.ca/nancy-greene/
We stopped at a small town along the way full of cute artsy shops but I didn’t buy anything. A frugal win! I did find a book in the free pile outside of a book store. The book is in German so I won’t read it. Instead, I will add it to my craft supplies.
i came back from our vacation feeling relaxed and invigorated. As a result, I added 7 pints of apple sauce and 3 liters of apple pie filling to the pantry for no money out. I saved the poor quality apples for my mom’s horses.
I made some bubble jet printer for an experimental craft project/Christmas gift and I went through my stash of fabric and notions to make another Christmas gift. Hard to believe, but Christmas will be here in 3 months!
How about you? Leave a comment and tell me about your frugal week.
