This Week's Frugal Tasks Saturday 9th June 2018

This week I took some time to recover from all the preparations for Jessica's 21st birthday party.  Then it was back to work as usual,  cleaning my own home and stockpiling some great bargains.  Here's my frugal list for the week -

*  Served homemade yummies of slices,  scones with my jam,  sandwiches,  mini quiches and sausage rolls at Jessica's high tea birthday party.

*  Made a paper doily bunting for the party using supplies I already had on hand

*  Ate leftovers from the party for dinner that night.

*  Made This And That Pasta Dish using bits and pieces from the fridge.  An almost free meal for three people.

*  Stocked up on tinned soups to use in casseroles.  I now have enough for the next 2 - 3 years.  They are on sale in Coles for $1 a tin until next Tuesday..

*  Dried all the washing on the line.  We've had some great weather in Melbourne this week.  Considering it's Winter,  I feel blessed to have sunshine on my wash days.

*  Took snacks and lunch with me when I was at cleaning jobs.  When I have food in my tummy I can resist the takeaway option.

*  Used the shower warm up water to water our mango plants.

* Fed lots of weeds,  grass and bread to the chickens.

*  Combined all my errands and supermarket visits when I was travelling home from cleaning jobs.

*  Jessica bought plain vanilla cakes from the supermarket and turned them into a beautiful birthday cake for her party.  I think she did a fabulous job.

*  Used containers for all leftovers instead of using cling wrap.

*  Gratefully received lots of muffins leftover from Jessica's work.  I cut them in half and froze them in recycled bread bags.
