This Week's Frugal Tasks Saturday 7th September 2019

I've spent most of the week resting and trying to recover from this nasty cough and infection.  It's been wonderful to watch tv during the day which is a rarity for me.  I'm slowly on the mend and feeling better each day.  I continued my cleaning work but worked at a slightly slower pace.

Here are my frugal tasks for the week -

*  Used a gift card to eat dinner out for our wedding anniversary on Monday..

*  Gave Megan a haircut.  She loves the feel of freshly cut hair.

*  Bought blocks of chocolate at half price to put in our family's Christmas stockings.  I know I'm a little early but I don't like paying full price for anything if I can help it.

*   Cleaned the dishwasher with bi carb and vinegar.

*  Gave the washing machine a good wipe out with vinegar.  The drum and pipes were cleaned with Epsom salts on a hot wash.

*  Emptied the last of a Dynamo laundry liquid bottle and swished water around to get every last drop out.  This made up a 600 ml bottle of liquid which will be used over many washes.

*  Finished making a lace bunting using old doilies I no longer use and ones I bought quite cheap at op shops.  This bunting will be used instead of balloons and streamers at many family celebrations in the future..

*  Dried all the washing on the line.  I'm glad to have the clothes horses packed away for a while.

*  With the weather warming up a little I resisted the urge to turn the heater on during the day.  I made sure all curtains were wide open especially when the sun was shining.

*  Went to the Savers op shop 50% off clothing sale.  I picked up two Winter tops for myself and two tops for Luka in larger sizes.

*  Used handmade cards and recycled gift bags for Father's Day and anniversary presents.

*  Picked silverbeet from the garden as our green vegetable for three meals.  I love to shred it finely and cook it in the spag bol sauce.  I've been doing this for so long that spag bol doesn't seem right without it.

*  Jessica did a cook up of butter chicken and froze all the leftovers into single portions.  Sometimes she doesn't know if she'll be home to eat dinner with us.  By having her own freezer meals it saves her money and reduces the urge to get takeaway on the way home from work.
