|Wishing for a little more of this lovely stuff that we enjoyed in November.|
Here's what my thrifty week looked like.
~ I reviewed a free copy of Ruth Soukup's book, Living Well Spending Less.
~ Although I don't usually pay for my review books and DVDs, the company expects that I will actually write and publish the review. ~smile~ Therefore, I always feel like I've settled a debt when I hit publish. There's a list of books and movies in my sidebar that I'll be doing reviews on in the near future.
~ I received a free copy of Nourished to review. It feels so nice in my hand. Things like that matter to me.
~ I made skillet oatmeal using a bit of butter in a fry pan, some dry oatmeal, a few leftover pecans crumbled, a bit of leftover honey, and a little maple syrup.
~ My girlfriend cut and styled my hair and my Emily's hair for us Thursday afternoon. She did a little extra for mine, but I'm not going to mention it on the internet!
~ Okay, if you're squeamish, don't read this next one. Everyone got their eyes covered if you need to? We ate squirrel and dumplings for dinner Friday evening! My son went hunting and shot some squirrels. I am so not this kind of girl! It wasn't bad, but I'm not going to request it. It was frugal. I bought the potatoes on sale, so we spent about $.75 on them, a stick of butter $.70 (baby girl didn't know she wasn't supposed to use a whole stick in the potatoes), half a dozen eggs $.90, and some flour. $.50... and a $.12 shotgun shell.
Now, I figure I may as well stop right here. I don't think you're going to want to read anymore after that last entry! I hope I haven't scared you away forever. ~smile~ I'm just trying to be a good, supportive homeschool mom.
You've got to keep an open mind if you want to live a thrifty and frugal life.
Have a wonderful week!
Happy at Home
