Frugal Friday Wrap Up...Kind of...week ending 1/26/200
So this is kind of a Frugal Friday Wrap Up. I say kind of because I did not keep a running tally of all that we did this past week. All I can do at this point is go from my rather foggy memory.
~We met with our banker and made some changes that will save us thousands in interest and fees.
~I called and got a credit onto our account for our internet service which has been spotty over the last few months.
~I made bread and a double batch of biscuits.
~I made a double batch of sausage gravy.
~A huge pot of potato/corn and chicken chowder was made from the carcus of a deli chicken after we had the legs and one of the breasts for dinner a different night.
~We borrowed more movies and books from the library.
~I found a big bag of oranges for $2 at Walmart.
~Honeycrisp apples were $.79 a pound at one of our local stores so I bought 8 huge apples.
~Jeff found a container of marked down powdered caramel creamer for $1. He is a very happy camper!
~Caesar's medication dropped in price saving us about $5.
~I mixed up more spice mixes to have on hand.
~After running errands and doing some shopping, we came home and threw a frozen pizza (which we had gotten on sale previously) into the oven to bake while we unloaded and put away groceries. I made a salad to go with it along with some apples slices. I also made some salad dressing to go over mine while Jeff chose to use some Ranch dressing that we had in the refrigerator.
~I've been using homeopathic treatments to deal with some infections and ailments. They work better than perscription meds for me.
~We got more free magazines and a sample of some perfume in the mail.
~We found some marked down hogie rolls so I divided them up and froze them for future meals.
~Jeff called and reduced the amount we are giving in charitable contributions/tithes since we have had a substantial cut in income.
That is all I can remember at the moment. It's been a rough week pain and brain fog wise with very little sleep happening. I've been doing my best to just cook in large batches to keep us fed and trying to keep up on laundry for the most part. Thank God for my amazing hubby Jeff who picks up the slack for me. I would be lost without him.
