I stuck to my grocery budget this past week. Yeah! That felt really good. With the upcoming holidays I know those on or under budget grocery trips will be fewer.
We had a moving sale over the weekend. I advertised on Facebook and through a radio station's free call in program. We sold quite a bit of stuff and had nothing out of pocket since the sale was held in our old home.
I decorated for Thanksgiving very inexpensively. My mom offered me some small artificial pumpkins to put on the mantle. I used more of the cotton bolls. My only expense was a pumpkin purchased on clearance for $1. I will use it for decorating through Thanksgiving. After that I will save the seeds to plant next year and feed the pumpkin to the chickens.
I finally harvested my roselle (Jamaican sorrel) and dried it in the dehydrator. I use this in my herbal teas so it is nice to be closer to knocking one more item off my purchase list. I will be saving seeds to plant next year.
I baked four loaves of bread this week.
W and I had a movie night at home with a used DVD I had purchased and snacks.
I did the usual too - hung clothes to dry, packed W's lunch, cooked meals at home, and avoided any unnecessary shopping.
