Last Week's Frugality

Last week wasn't a great week for frugality at my house but I did manage to save quite a bit and add to my pantry in the process!

  We went to Aldi and purchased the loss leaders that were advertised. Saved quite a bit there! I bought 8 lbs. of carrots to can. I love cooked carrots but they take so stinking long to cook.  My home canned ones are cooked during processing and are a snap to prepare for supper!

They also had corn on the cob 4/$1. Blueberries were $1 per container.  My mother loves blueberries so I bought 6 containers.  While she is eating on 2, I used the rest to make blueberry pancake syrup. I made 4 pints for the cost of $4 for the berries and the cost of 4 cups of sugar! If you haven't priced blueberry syrup lately, this is a huge savings! And let me tell you the syrup is flippin' amazing! I know cause I tried it on my waffles this morning! Yummy!
  I only packed my lunch 3 days last week.  I know, I know I have to improve on this.  Such an easy way to save money! 

  Well, that's about it for me !  How did you save money last week?

Frugal Blessings to you all,
