Last week I packed my lunch all 5 days!! Yeah for me! I have to keep it up!
I was able to pick up 20 cans of tuna for my stash at a great price--loss leader. Our local grocery
I have been garden dreaming lately, so I was inspired by Pinterest to spray paint 2 of my Goodwill bowling balls for faux gazing balls for the yard. My cousin gave me the paint so this was a cheap project!
I also spray painted a lamp I found at the Goodwill last month. It was hot pink, but now it is black and it looks great in my living room!
Another item sold on E-bay this week so I am $5.00 ahead because of that. Every little bit helps I guess.
We are still catching water in the shower bucket and using it to flush.
My Momma treated us to KFC last week! It has been quite a while since I have tasted the Colonels secret herbs and spices let me tell you! Thanks Mom!
I finally found a pair of brand new work shoes at the Goodwill Saturday! They were $6
but I received the 10% senior discount. So $5.40 for a pair of brand new shoes! Score!! If you remember, I had to buy the gel insoles because my old shoes were so worn on the inside! But I have managed to make do until I found new ones! Good things do come to those who wait!
I was able to get my cabbage chopped and frozen for future pots of soup!
We have been eating as much food from the freezer as possible. I need to get it cleaned out for future garden bounty! I am thinking positively!
I just about had a heart attack when I received my electric bill. Most of you know I have been playing Light Nazi and have been hang drying my towels. I thought this would help but my electric bill was $306.00 last month! That is right, $306.00!!
We use propane for heat and hot water and it was still $306.00! The bill said the time period was longer than last month, and the cost went up. Boy did it go up. This is unacceptable.....totally unacceptable! I am still working on a plan to reduce it, but if you have any ideas, I would love to hear them! $306.00 for February--I am gobsmacked! Just think how much it would have been without hanging the towels and turning off the lights!
Well, that's about it for me. How have you been saving money this past week?
