Thrifty Tuesday

Being thrifty is cool, but at this time of year thrifty can also be warm.

My thrifty moves for this week have been more along the lines of making sure we stay warm inside and out.

I darned some of Harvey's warm winter socks, fixed a couple of seams on a lap quilt that Harvey wraps up in on these frosty mornings, filled the truck tank with fuel that I haven't seen cost so little in years, and hemmed a pair of winter weight pants for myself.

I have also continued with the use it up from the freezer. Soup that had been previously made and the excess frozen was taken out for a meal. A few slices of the leftover pork was thinly sliced and made into a stir fry tonight (more left for another meal....cook once, eat twice again). I have been using other kitchen appliances to cook with more so the oven is staying off saving electrical costs.

The draught dodgers have been cleaned and made ready to be put in front of the doors to keep out cold winds and to help with energy consumption.

Grocery lists made with coupons and sales in mind as well as what is already in the house.

Bills paid on line saving time and stamps.

Gifts being worked on using up remnants of fabric and yarn.

All in all a thrifty week.

Everybody have a wonderful evening.

God bless.


  1. It feels so good to complete those small tasks doesn't it. Being able to cook once and eat twice is always a joy too.

  2. Good thrifty work Jackie, as always.
