Thrifty Week at Harvest Lane Cottage!
I'm so glad you've found me! Each week I share my thrifty and frugal projects, ways of saving money, and my blessings from God.
Harvest Lane Cottage
I am so glad you dropped in for a visit today—or tonight!
Do say hello!
IT'S HERE! Fall is my absolute favorite time of the year. I've been doing some end of summer things, some preparing for Christmas things, and some use it up, wear it out, make it do, or do without things this past week. I'll be having surgery on Wednesday. Your prayers will be appreciated. Hopefully, I will recover quickly and be able to take full advantage of this wonderful season.
Here's what I've been up to lately.
~ I have been using Walmart Pick-Up. Fewer impulse purchases.
~ I planned to purchase a new tea, but my friend brought me a box before I ordered it! Blessing! Thank you Joyce!
~ Joyce also brought me some jalapeno jam. Yum. I'll serve it over cream cheese with crackers. Thanks Joyce.
~ I ordered another set of sparkly nail polish strips from Lily & Fox for $2.99 with free shipping. They're a fall color called Point Blank. Yay fall! They are so easy. I make them last longer by using Sally Hanson's shiny gel top coat.
~ I returned a pair of shoes that didn't fit my husband by mail. Hoping the refund comes without trouble. I sent it priority mail for only twenty cents extra, and it came with $50 insurance.
~ I am reading The Unlikely Yarn of the Dragon Lady—a book I received for free from the publisher for review. Enter the giveaway here.
~ I'm knitting socks for gifts using yarn that was given to me or I had on hand. Thank you so much to the ladies who have given me sock yarn! You know who you are.
~ I made iced tea several times. I use one family size Lipton tea bag and one single serve Constant Comment, peach, or peppermint tea bag. Refreshing!
~ Not sure if you'd call it thrifty, but I've been eating lots of salads especially for lunch.
~ I mended my daughter's big fluffy pink bed pillow.
~ I sewed three buttons on a dress. It will last another season, though it's beginning to show wear.
~ I reviewed Courageous Legacy. I highly recommend it. It's in theaters now!
