This covers a couple of weeks since I never got around to posting at all last week.
I stuck close to my grocery budget only going over slightly this past week. That included stocking up on sale priced butter. It will all balance out in the end.
I have tried my best to make good use of leftovers which helps with the grocery budget. W also requested that I try to use up the food that we have on hand before we move. Even though we are only moving across the yard, it is a good opportunity to use what we have rather than continuing to buy more.
I made envelopes for mailing letters to friends. I used colorful copy paper and a glue stick. These envelopes are fun and a fraction of the cost of a similar purchased envelope.
I gave myself a manicure.
I have been enjoying the TV show "Chef's Life" via the PBS channel on Roku. The cooking tips are very good, and it is an interesting show.
I avoided buying any of the "deals" offered online. I enjoy looking at all of the sales. If I do not need something though, it is not a deal. Saying no means saying yes to a larger goal.
W fixed our sound machine which I need at night to sleep. It kept cutting off randomly in the middle of the night at which point I would immediately wake up. It took a few minutes of time, but it is now as god as new.
I sent cupcakes to work with Warren for him and his co-workers to enjoy. They were made from scratch and were budget friendly since they helped use up some buttermilk.
We used a coupon at Lowe's for something we needed for the new house and saved $10.
I used more scrap yarn to crochet hair bows for the Operation Christmas Child shoeboxes.
I am sure there are more items, but this covers the highlights. What did you do to save money this past week?
