This Week's Frugal Tasks Saturday 2nd February 2019

The hot weather continues in Melbourne but thankfully we've had a couple of milder days so we can get things done around the home.  Our new lounge suite arrived yesterday.  The outdoor deck is finished ( just a few touch ups to do ) and finally our home is back to it's normal tidy self.

The frugal tasks I've listed below are from the last two weeks and in order as I completed them.

*  Made a double batch of Anzac biscuit dough.  I baked enough biscuits for Megan's birthday afternoon tea and the rest of the dough was frozen for future baking.

*  Made a bottle of Miracle Spray for Megan and Kurt and another two bottles for myself.  I use this fabulous cleaner at most of my cleaning jobs as well as around my home.

*  Made 2 litres of foaming hand wash for Megan and Kurt to refill their hand wash pumps around their home.

*  Baked four loaves of wholemeal bread with extra goodness.

*  Cleaned the washing machine with Epsom salts and hot water.  It's amazing how much gunk comes out of the outlet hose.  I try to do this twice a year to keep the machine in tip top condition.

*  Mended a top with loose threads and a pair of trousers.

*  Jessica and a friend made a double batch of chocolate brownies.  We ate some and the rest went into the freezer for Megan's baby shower.

*  Sold two jars of plum jam and two dozen eggs to a cleaning client.

*  Did extra cleaning work for a client.

*  Gratefully received little tomatoes from my Dad's veggie garden.

*  Gratefully received quite a few department store gift bags from a friend.  I'll be making them over so they can be reused for gift giving.

*  When the hot weather arrived,  I cooked enough baked potatoes,  boiled eggs and pasta salad for a couple of days of eating.  They were served with a salad.

*  Made two litres of foaming hand wash to store under the kitchen sink.  I also filled up all spare refill bottles.  I should have enough made for the next six months.

*  While I was making the foaming hand wash I found an empty vinegar bottle so I  made another two litres of double strength Miracle Spray.

*  Sold a bottle of Miracle Spray to a cleaning client.

*  Made pita chips for snacking.

*  Picked a few tomatoes and a handful of raspberries.  .
