I am working my way slowly to getting this post back to Sundays. I am slowly getting there.
This past week I repaired a pair of jeans. The metal button had fallen off a pair. I used it to find a similar sized regular button from my craft supplies which I sewed on.
At the grocery store I stuck to my budget in spite of buying meat (bone-in chicken breasts, a Boston butt, and a turkey). I used part of the chicken and the Boston butt to make a large pot of Brunswick stew. This was divided into meal sized portions and put in the freezer. I am slowly working to restock the freezer with some easy meals.
I ordered a few more Christmas gifts using gift cards earned with Swagbucks. I placed an order for in store pickup through Swagbucks to earn some points.
I purchased a large flat of succulents on clearance for $5. These were regularly $17. It was enough to fill two window boxes and a flower bed along the porch with room for them to spread. Now that the chickens no longer have access to the flower bed they should do well. (Pictures tomorrow)
I worked on a handmade gift of matching games using supplies I already had. I also made 35 tubes of lip balm to use as gifts. The initial cost of the lip balm was not cheap, but I have enough supplies to make lots of these. When the cost is spread out, it is very cheap.
