I've missed a bit with my thrifty week series over the summer. Since it's been such a popular series, and it keeps me thinking thrifty thoughts, here's my thrifty and frugal week:
~I made homemade bread and rolls.
~ I went to a bag sale at the thrift store brought clothes for my children, school supplies, and a nice gravy boat for me.
Yes! I stuffed all of this into one standard sized brown paper bag!
~ The next day we went yard saling. We found a waffle maker, some Legos, and more clothes for my girls. Emily was proud to say that from head to toe she spent only $1 on a really cute blouse, skirt, and new shoes for Sunday! Go girl!
~ This was week three of the big eat down. I've been doing my best to use up what we have in the fridge, freezer, and cabinets rather than buying groceries. I did pretty well. I did buy a few things to supplement. Last night, however, my husband told me that he wanted to make waffles this weekend. I had to buy everything, including flour and sugar, except the baking powder! I told him that if I don't grocery shop this weekend, we'll be eating some really strange things this coming week. ~smile~ His vacation starts this afternoon, so I think he'll want to eat some good things.
~ I stayed home again most of the week. I did have a couple of errands I had to do, but I didn't go anywhere for pleasure.
Well, that's about it for now. Think thrifty and be creative!
Use it up, wear it out, make it do or do without my frugal sisters!
Happy at Home
May I suggest?
