This Week's Frugal Tasks Saturday 14th July 2018

Keeping warm has been my biggest task each day.  I find it helps if I keep moving.  Wednesday's post on this topic had lots of people chatting about their ways to keep warm.  There were some great ideas to add to the list.

Here's what else I've been up to this week -

*  Made dried bread crumbs from saved bread crusts.  When I need seasoned bread crumbs I'll add the seasonings.

*  Cut up a cereal bag to use as go between for crumpets and hamburger patties.

*  Fed the compost bin with coffee grounds from a café,  kitchen peelings and used tea leaves.

*  Juiced lemons and froze the juice for future jams,  lemon butter and other meals.

*  Cut up a few odd socks to use as garden ties.

*  Froze tuna pasta bake leftovers for future meals.

*  Gratefully received lots of muffins from Jessica's work.

*  Bought an overlocker from Aldi on clearance for $129.  It was reduced from $199.

*  Made a bread pudding in the slow cooker using saved up bread crusts.  Such a frugal recipe and very yummy.

*  Made chicken stock in the slow cooker using a chicken carcass.  Today I'll be making up a big pot of chunky chicken and veggie soup.

*  Saved washing machine water, shower water and drink bottle water as per usual.

*  Stuck to the 2 light rule with some nights only needing one.  Also turned off standby lights,  closed ducted heating vents in rooms not being used and closed the curtains just before  dusk.

*  Received our latest electricity bill and it was $111.90 cheaper than the same time last year but does include a $50 credit for switching to a better discount.  So you could say we really saved $61.90.  The new discount is for part of the bill period so we hope to save more on the next bill.
