This Week's Frugal Tasks Saturday 2nd June 2018

This week has been a week of stockpiling.  I'm thankful I had a good amount of money put away in the grocery slush fund for bargains.  Stockpiling is a way of never paying full price and ensuring we don't run out of anything.

Here's my frugal list for the week -

*  Made lemon slice and chocolate truffles  for Jessica's 21st birthday party.

*  Gratefully received lots of bread bags.  They were used for wrapping meat,  lining bathroom bins and for scooping up kitty poop.

*  Kept the heater off as much as possible when the Sun was shining.

*  Stockpiled toothpaste at $2 a tube and teabags 200 for $4.99.  I now have enough toothpaste for 2 years and tea for 2 1/2 years.

*  Dried most of the washing on the line.  Some things were finished in the dryer.  Darren is still painting so clothes horses would get in the way.

*  Cooked all meals from scratch except Jessica's birthday dinner.  We went to a local restaurant to celebrate.

*  Fed the compost bin  and worm farm with kitchen scraps.

*  Started using the door snake at the front door to prevent the cold air coming in.

*  Put the Winter doona on our bed.  With the temperature dropping overnight,  we won't be tempted to turn the heater up.

*  Jessica and I were in Kmart just as a staff member was filling up the discount trolleys.  Jessica picked up a stainless steel kettle for $17 and a couple of jumpers for $8.  I picked up a few makeup / toiletry goodies to go in the girl's Christmas stockings.  I also bought clips to seal chip and biscuit packets for 75 cents a pack.  I bought lots for us to use and some will be put in the present cupboard.

*  Saved water in the shower,  washing machine and kitchen sink.

*  Bought lots of butter from NQR for $3.69 for 500g.  I've put a few blocks in the fridge and the rest went into the freezer.  $3.69 is a bargain price considering butter increases in price just about every week and is now selling for $5.10.
