Thrifty Tuesday

A few thrifty things happened around here this week.

Along with the usual laundry, baking bread, and windows opened to allow cool breezes to enter the house thriftiness we managed to fit in a few others.

I turned three of Kris's dress long sleeved dress shirts into short sleeved dress shirts. Saved the buttons from the cuffs as well as mended a small hole he had in one of them.

We have been watering our plants with water from the rain barrel. It was getting pretty low, and the grass needed water badly....Well today we got rain! Free grass watering, rain barrel filled and I did not have to water our plants. The car even got a free wash, something it really needed as well.

Took the vehicle in for an oil change which was free. Free is always the best in my books.

Everybody have a wonderful day.

God bless.


  1. I sure am enjoying reading your daily updates... I agree with you, Free is always a good thing for sure!

  2. Free is good! I too, am working at being more thrifty in my home.
    Hoping to stop by your blog again.
