I was able to wash, cut, and freeze a gallon size bag of strawberries. These will be great in smoothies or I will use them in the summer when I make mixed berry jam.
I made three loaves of lemon poppy seed bread.
I requested a bunch of cookbooks from the library. I always get cookbooks from the library first. If I find that I am constantly rechecking out a book, then I search for it on Ebay. This month I purchased three cookbooks Don't Panic--Dinner's in the Freezer, Don't Panic: More Dinner's in the Freezer, The Girl Who Ate Everything. They are all ones I have been eyeing for a while. I am really excited I was able to add them to my collection of books. I was able to snag them each for under $10.
I resisted the urge to buy some cute home decor stuff at Target. I consider that one of the biggest accomplishments this week! Haha! It was hard though...like really hard. They have metal bins, chalkboard signs, and cute clipboards right now. I filled my cart, walked around the store and got what I actually came for, and then I put the home decor stuff back on it's shelf. Anyone else do this? Sometimes it is hard to resist all the cuteness and Target knows my weakness for Chevron and burlap people! I swear they do. This week I won though! I got your number Target!
I rearranged some things in my home, instead of buying new decor:)
I worked out at home. I don't have a gym membership, so I borrow DVDs from the library and get my work out on. Right now I am loving Denise Austin's Boot Camp. It is kicking my butt!
When I got a cold I used toilet paper, instead of running to the store for tissues.
I also made our meals at home this week, except on Libby's baptism day.
What frugal things have you all been up to this week?
