A Thrifty Week at Harvest Lane Cottage #27

I'm not sure where this week has gone.  I've been doing something.  I'm sure of it.  Oh well, here's what I remember. ~smile~



~ I used a sweater shaver to remove the pills from one of my husband's sweaters.
~ My thirteen year old had a homemade birthday party with lemonade and cupcakes she made and decorated with her sister. She used some leftover streamers and balloons that she found in our gift wrapping box.
~ We used that yard sale box of wrappings so that we didn't have to buy any.
~ We gave her several small inexpensive gifts.
~ We stayed home and ate homemade sauce from the freezer with spaghetti instead of going out for pizza.

What have you done this week?

Have a thrifty week!
Blessings,
Laura

  2. I believe that when we are thrifty we are more creative! The week has went slow at our house, I have the bug! So I have had lots of downtime just wish I could BREATHE! Have a great weekend!

  3. Dear Greatfull,
    Be healed in Jesus' Name! You and your household!
    You are right about being creative. I almost need those constraints sometimes.

  7. I feel like that at the end of my workday sometimes. "I know I've been doing SOMETHING all day...." I doubt the boss would appreciate that though, if she ever happened to ask what I had accomplished that day! :-)

Hello! I love it when y'all talk back!

I read all the comments I receive. I answer as many as I can.

Right now, I'm healing from breast cancer surgery on October 20th and dealing with the side effects of chemotherapy. Please understand if I don't answer. This is all new to me.

THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR PRAYING FOR ME!!!
I treasure your prayers and your comments.

If you have a question, be sure I can reach you by email or subscribe to the comments.

Be blessed!
Laura
