This Week's Frugal Tasks Saturday 9th March 2019

This week has been quite a busy one.  I've had four days of work,  a couple of visitors in the house for two days and trying to stay on tops of the cleaning and meals.  Here's what else I managed to do -

Made one kilo of yoghurt using two tablespoons of natural yoghurt as a starter.  We've been having it with stewed rhubarb as a delicious dessert.

*  Gratefully received lots of little tomatoes from a friend.

*  Sold one dozen eggs.

*  Made a double batch of scones.  Some were taken to church for morning tea and the rest were frozen for our own eating.

*  Made 6 jars of jam from the white peaches I was given 1 1/2 weeks ago.  I had to wait until they were ripe enough to cook up.

*  Cleaned the dishwasher using bi carb and vinegar and ran it on a long hot cycle.

*  Stockpiled lots of choc bits for baking.  They are 1/2 price in Coles at $1.97 this week until next Wednesday.  Mostly I use the white choc bits when baking cranberry hootycreek biscuits.  The milk choc bits are using for choc chip biscuit and muffins.

*  Made a batch of dried gravy mix using plain flour,  beef stock powder and a few other seasonings.

*  Made dried seasoned bread crumbs from scratch.

*  Redeemed another $10 worth of points onto our Flybuys card.  We use this money to buy groceries when we go on holidays.

*  Gratefully received some card making supplies and magnetic strips ( from an old fridge door ) from a friend.

*  Saved and recycled household water as per usual.

*  Picked up a pretty single bed doona cover at Savers for $6.99.  I'm not sure what I'll make from it.  Maybe aprons,  decorated hand towels,  jam jar hats and produce bags.

A stockpile worthy price
