Here is our week:
*Accepted a free box spring for my son's bed. He decided he did not want the smaller room with the bunk bed, so he accepted the bed frame my husband got from a customer instead that we were originally going to use for our daughter. I was blessed when my best friend had one in her attic. With the bunk bed he had not needed a box spring for his mattress.
* My husband was given a sack of snacks from a coworker that had like 8 or 9 bags of chips that my daughter and I can eat during the week for snack or lunch
* I inventoried our cupboards and freezer and I made a MEAL PLAN! It is just a little two week one....but it's a start. We are just using up what we have for a bit, but I have already made a shopping plan for our tiny grocery budget for the month ( I won't shop till the 15th)
* We continued to make some home made dog food out of stuff we have on hand.
*Collected a few feathers from the chicken pen to use on craft projects
*Made homemade stain remover using blue Dawn, and peroxide. It did a decent job. I rubbed it in with a toothbrush and put a little baking soda on top and let it sit for an hour.
*Have gotten my daughter to drink more water...she always says she hates it but here is what we did. One day she was throwing a fit about how she didn't want water...well I always stick a glass in the freezer cause I like mine as cold as it can get....it froze some and I told her that Elsa must have snuck out of her room and froze my water. So now we pretend and call it Elsa water. She likes the thought, and she will drink it.
Frugal Flop: I fell off the No Spenduary band wagon and bought two little Ceasar's Pizza's the other night....I was disappointed in myself, but here is my confession in an effort to "keep it real." Even though this happened, if this is the only thing we do it's still a huge difference compared to what we usually might spend.
Things to consider. I also belong to a group where we are doing a declutter challenge....and I usually just donate the stuff to get it out of the house, but I can't decide if I want to try and sell any of it to make extra cash....it's not always easy....the kids see stuff of theirs and they want it back etc...so is it worth the hassle, or should I just donate it to the church thrift store where they sell each bag for $1.00 and let it bless someone else.
How was your week?
