Weekly Savings

I made an attempt to keep up with my savings each day of the week rather than try to remember them all at the end.

I juiced the remaining lemons and ended up with 3 cups of lemon juice.  I divided it into three jars and froze it for future use.

I rented "Jurassic World" for free from Amazon using a coupon code and credit from choosing No Rush Shipping.

I made two homemade pizzas.  One was served for supper, and the other went into the freezer for a future meal.

I picked peppers from the garden in case the cold ended up as a hard frost.  Part of those peppers went onto the pizza.  Others were used in fajitas.  I still have a bag full in the refrigerator.

I used some apples to make a yummy fresh apple cake.  The peels and cores were cooked down in some water.  I plan to use the apple juice to make apple jelly.

I have been using more yarn scraps to crochet hair bows.  It is a really nice way to use up pieces that are not enough for a big project.

I bought Leo two collars at the Dollar Tree.  He plays hard with one of my parents' dogs and either loses or breaks his collar.  We have tried the more expensive ones, but it is honestly easier to lose a $1 collar.

With the mild weather one of the raised beds is full of clover.  I have been pulling it up to give to the rabbits, ducks, and chickens.  It has been a nice, free treat for all of them.
