I cannot honestly say that this was a frugal week. We had car expenses, we had to replace all the hens we lost to wild dogs with new chicks, we had a doctor bill, a computer repair. In other words, life happened. Fortunately, we had money in the bank to cover the extra expenses. The next couple of weeks need to be extra thrifty to make up for these extra expenses.
That said, here's our thrifty week at Harvest Lane Cottage:
~ We bought a like-new trampoline for the children at a yard sale. This was an answer to Amy's prayers and saving. We all pitched in. $100!
~ We spent Memorial Day afternoon with family at our creek instead of traveling or going to the pool.
~ We started listening to a set of history CDs called Hero Tales that I received for free for review.
~ I did not take our planned trip to the library, so I saved about $10 in gas.
~ Emily made a pair of palazzo pants into coulottes.
~ I made cream of mushroom soup from a gigantic Chicken of the Woods mushroom that a friend gave to us. It was delicious.
~ We ate dinner at church before service Wednesday.
~ I stayed home and did not spend money. ~smile~
May I suggest?
