It's been a relaxing week here at the cottage. Mister has been home on a two week vacation! Wow! The first one in twenty-five years! We've been busy about the house sprucing things up, relaxing, watching some movies, getting caught up on paperwork and such.
Here is my thrifty week:
~ I patched five pairs of jeans, two for each son and one for my daughter. I spent $1.98 for thread versus about $100 for new jeans.
~ I hemmed a pair of jeans that were looking a bit frayed for my husband. They'll look nice for awhile longer.
~ I made easy peasy laundry soap. RECIPE
~ I filled up my IBC root beer bottle with dish soap. It has a little olive oil pour spout in it that makes my dish soap last a long time.
~ I cut up some old t-shirts for cleaning rags. My husband had snuck my rag bag out to his shed and was using the ones I had.
~ I pared apples from our tree for an apple pie. Hubby made it and it was delicious!
~ I read books that I received for free in exchange for an honest book review.
~ I used a Starbucks card that I earned through Swagbucks for using their search engine. You can find out more by clicking the link below. If you sign up through this link, I get credit.
Well, that's all I can think of right now. Have a terrific weekend!
Happy at Home
