Happy today everyone!
Over a period of fourteen weeks last summer, I shared what I did each week to be thrifty. Since it was so popular with y'all, and I am so much thriftier when I'm keeping track, I've decided to write A Thrifty Week again. Here are some things I've done in the last few days:
~ I returned a package of fuzzy fungi (button mushrooms) to Aldi. They will refund your purchase price and replace your product with a fresh one.
~ Litfuse notified me that I'll be receiving Karen Barnett's new book, Out of the Ruins, to review in May for free.
~ I had my children measure out just 1/2 cup of cheese crackers for a snack. I bought them at Aldi.
~ I put pickle slices on a plate to serve with dinner. They were gone at the end of the meal. If I'd put the jar on the table, it would have been nearly empty by the end of the meal. I have some pickle monsters. ~smile~
~ We attended a trade show in Branson. There were lots of free food samples. We didn't even have to buy lunch.
~ The children were blessed to see a movie at the Imax as a gift from one of my husband's friends.
~ I invested some money in good tools- a mini shaver to get pills off sweaters and a new iron. My husband insisted that I get a good quality iron that will last for several years. My last one was a little cheapy that someone gave to me. I was thankful to have it, but it began leaking profusely after just a few months.
~ I shaved the pills off my husband's favorite sweater vest. I invested forty-five minutes, but I couldn't make it or make the money to replace it in forty-five minutes.
It's been a really busy week. It's been a good week.
Be blessed and be thrifty!
Happy at Home
