Hello Dear Readers,
My Aunt passed away several weeks ago and as my Uncle started cleaning out her stuff (she was a borderline hoarder) he set aside a box of stuff to give me. Practical things like band-aids, gauze, first aid tape, hydrocortisone cream, Benadryl, Neosporin, aspirin and much much more. I was delighted and thankful to get it all. Now my first aid stash is much improved! Thanks Uncle Howard!
I saved 60 cents per gallon of gas at Kroger using my Kroger points from buying our meds. Saved almost $6.00 on one fill up!
As Easter is almost upon us, I used some chocolate wafers I already had and made some Easter Chocolate lollipops for my Grand daughter's and niece's Easter Baskets. I did buy them each an adorable doggie purse at a hospital fundraiser. I really didn't want to spend that much but the profits go to patient services at our hospital so it was for a great cause! I have cut back on the amount of candy I usually get for them so it evens out.
Speaking of Easter. I have my Easter meal planned and most I already have in my freezer or pantry. I have a ham and a large roast in the freezer that I plan on serving along with my make ahead mashed potatoes, green beans from the freezer and 7 layer salad. My mom is making carrot cake and I plan on making butterscotch pie! The only thing I will have to buy is the veggies for the salad and rolls. We will have lemonade and iced tea to drink. I think it will be a very nice meal that won't cost a fortune!
I found several items of summer clothes for my Granddaughter at the Goodwill Saturday. I also found several garden flags for a dollar each and purchased 5. They are so adorable and would have cost at least $9 each at the store. I did find a top for me--kind of a Boho look but I love it! With a price of $3.49 and half off of that, I can afford to try and change up my style a little bit!
I have some plans knocking around in my head that I am contemplating but will not be posting until things are firmed up! I hope to be sharing more in the future though. Keep your fingers crossed for me!
