Frugal Friday

I mentioned yesterday that I had been sick.  I was under the weather most of the past week.  W did make one quick run to the dollar store to pick up a few things.  Otherwise we have both stayed close to home.  He stayed clear of me, and I stayed clear of him.  Thankfully he avoided getting sick.  I did realize that I need to stock up on a few "sick person" items over the next few weeks.  It would have prevented the extra run to the store.

Unfortunately I got very little of what I had on my list done this week.  Fortunately none of it was pressing.

I had managed to do some work in the garden.  I finished weeding one bed that had the most herbs sprouting.  I have stevia, marshmallow, blue hyssop, chamomile, and yarrow growing again from last year.  It is frugal in that I will not need to replace those.

We skipped grocery shopping this week.  I had plenty of things for Warren to take in his lunch.  He had milk and cereal so we can make do with everything else.

I received a free product coupon from a sweepstakes I had entered.  That was a nice surprise.  I will use it to get a package of bagels.  I also received an assortment of coupons from the grocery store I shop at most often.  I was happy to note that all were for items I already buy.

Those are the highlights from the past week.  I hope to stay healthy and accomplish more in the coming week!

I used to keep a shelf stocked as a sick pantry in the kitchen and another in the bathroom (pills and cold meds etc). I need to do that again. AND to study up on how diabetic needs change things. I think should I have a virus that involves stomach issues I have to actually INCREASE sugar intake. See? I need to brush up on this information! Fortunately I have only ever had stomach virus twice in my adult life. But it's best to be prepared, despite that fact.
