This Week's Frugal Tasks Saturday 10th August 2019

As you read this post,  I'm away in Tasmania with the card making group I belong to.  Four glorious days of chatting,  eating,  drinking tea,  making cards and relaxing.  One of the ladies from our group moved to Tasmania about 18 months ago and is hosting us for our very long weekend.

While I'm away,  my family members back home will ( hopefully ) be cooking up the meals I've left them in the freezer.

Here's my shorter list of frugal tasks I've completed before heading off on my little getaway -

*  Made up a triple batch of laundry powder.

*  Made two containers of dried bread crumbs from saved bread crusts.  I'll season them when my container gets low.

*  Descaled the kettle using citric acid.

*  Decorated a few department store bags to reuse as gift bags.

*  Ate freezer meals a couple of nights.

*  Saved the washing machine rinse water and shower warm up water to pour into the washing machine.

*  Baked four loaves of wholemeal bread with extra goodness.  I wasn't due to bake bread last Monday but with me being away over the weekend I wanted the family to avoid buying from the supermarket.

*  Dried the washing on the line and clothes horses.

*  Gratefully received some lemons from a friend.

*  Froze all leftovers including gravy.

*  Picked silverbeet from the garden to add to the spag bol sauce.  I also picked fresh rosemary to add to the roast veggies one night.

Are you picking anything from your veggie garden or flower beds ? How did you save money this week ?

Due to my getaway I am unable to post your comments until Tuesday.
