I opted to order all of my garden seeds from one company this year. It saved on shipping since Baker Creek Heirloom Seeds offers flat rate shipping.
I was not able to get any lunchbox pepper seeds as Baker Creek does not carry them. Instead I bought lunchbox peppers which were on sale this week. I will eat the peppers and plant the seed!
I thought about buying birthday cards since I had not gotten around to making any for February birthdays. In the end I got in my craft room and made birthday and anniversary cards for this month. I will work on the cards for the remainder of this year over the next few weeks. I saved myself a minimum of $4 this month and $30+ over the entire year. It just took a bit of motivation to save the money.
I made some note cards for writing to friends. I realize I could write letters on plain paper, but I like to send letters written on fun paper.
I used some coupons on planned purchase items at the grocery store to save some money.
I used an Amazon discount code to get inexpensive vitamins. I ordered a couple of things for the shoeboxes and chose no rush shipping. I have enough credits for a free movie rental for February and a cheap date night.
I have been drinking water in a reusable water bottle.
I intentionally chose flower seeds for my bee/butterfly garden that are drought tolerant and will reseed.
I watched tv shows and some movies for free though Crackle and Vudu.
