- I fixed the objects in the picture about using a 50 cent tube of super glue. You can read more about that here.
- I processed some squash up that we had been storing. I used every bit of it - the flesh is for us to eat, the seeds I made into a snack for us as well and then the skins and any bad seeds went out to feed the chickens and ducks.
- Mara and Jonathan were needing new jeans (those kids just keep growing on me!) and so I stopped in quickly to look at a thrift store. I found 2 pairs for Mara (one might end up being for me instead) for 50 cents each so that was nice. I am going to have to keep looking for Jonathan.
- I also found 2 old hardcover books for free at the thrift store. They were in pretty good shape and seemed like fun old stories.
- I made up a batch of laundry soap.
- I was able to use a 7 cents off per gallon of gas coupon when I filled up yesterday.
- We had thought we would go downhill skiing this evening but decided to stay home and work on building projects in the basement instead. This definitely saved us money and got some work done too. That was especially nice just now as next weekend we have a lot of company coming and we are trying to get ready for it. My parents came over to help some this afternoon too. My Dad installed the door to Megan's room as well as doing other things and Mom helped me in cleaning up the basement. I am very blessed.
- I mended an old sleeping bag by sewing a used sheet inside. Now it should be warmer and more comfortable and be usable even longer.
- Jonathan made "Cream of Wheat" for breakfast the other day by simply grinding wheat in our grinder and then bringing water to a boil and whisking the flour in until it is all smooth. We also added a little almond flavoring. It tastes like the store bought "Cream of Wheat" but is much cheaper.
Did you work on any frugal projects? I would love to hear about your week.
