My grocery spending has been a bit out of control for the past month so I put myself on a budget to get things to balance back out. More details on that later in the week. The good thing is that I stuck to the budget.
We closed our safe deposit box at the bank. It was a bit silly to see the things we had been storing in there. Nothing was irreplaceable. We received a 98 cents refund but will save $45 a year from here on out.
We ate strawberries from my parents' garden and four blueberries from ours. This is the first year for our blueberry plants so I was not expecting much. I cannot begin to describe how delicious my two organic, fresh picked blueberries were.
All of our laundry was dried either outside or on drying racks inside. I also used a sample of detergent to wash two loads.
Meals were all cooked at home, and we made an effort to eat leftovers.
I cooked dried beans in the slow cooker twice this week. It is cheaper than buying canned beans and also healthier. I can control the amount of salt when I cook them myself.
I did no extra shopping this week. I did not let myself get tempted by any Amazon deals or in store sales on things I did not need.
