Frugal Friday

This week has been quiet around the old homestead. There have been many small frugal goals met this week, but nothing really big has happened.

1.  I have gotten the saved seeds out to be started in the next few weeks. 

2.  Using up leftovers to advantage and being able to make quick changes to the monthly menu plans to do just that.

3.  Used a gift card from Christmas to download some novels to my ereader.

4.  Used some coupons when shopping this week.

5.  Planning sewing projects to use up fabric left from other projects.

So not really too badly done on the frugal front. There are a few more small items such as using up samples, combining errands, and walking for exercise when I am able to do so.

This is what we woke up to this morning.

It got steadily worse until I could not see down into the valley at all.

Then, all of a sudden, just before supper....

It cleared up completely. The wind has caused some fairly large drifts, but at least we have a bit of a break before the second wave hits.

Everybody have a wonderful evening.

God bless.


  1. It sounds like you had a good week for should write a book, giving us all such great, money-saving tips...

  2. I save seeds as well as buy them.
    Stay warm.
