This Week's Frugal Tasks Saturday 17th August 2019

It's been a shorter week for me this week.  I arrived back from my card making weekend late Monday night.  We had a fantastic time away and made some great cards.  The weather was glorious with lots of sun to warm our souls.  Delicious homemade / baked food was served by Carol our host and her home was cosy and welcoming.

Here's my frugal list from the last few days -

*  Purchased a padded valance for our bed for $4.  I'd been searching for one for our bed for nine months from Target but they always sold out within days of getting new stock.  After contacting head office a few times they located one for me and sent a $20 gift card for my troubles.  The valance scanned at $24 so I only had to pay $4.

*  Filled up my car with petrol and used a fuel discount docket which bought it down to $1.23 per litre which is quite cheap.

*  Cooked all meals from scratch and ate some meals from the freezer.

*  Limited the dryer use to drying uniforms.  The rest of the clothes went on clothes horses.

*  Juiced and froze the last of the gifted lemons.

*  Made potato cakes from a couple of spoonfuls of left over potato / pumpkin mash and enjoyed them for my lunch.

*  While in Tasmania on the card making weekend,  I purchased a few shower squeegees for $1 each from Shiploads ( a discount store ).  The exact same thing costs $2 in The Reject Shop.

*  Gratefully received some donuts leftover from one of Jessica's jobs.

*  Made chicken stock for the freezer from a chicken Jessica bought for our dinner.

*  Fed the compost bin every two days with kitchen scraps.

*  Saved the shower warm up water.  Turned lights off whenever possible..
