I have been busy using things up and storing the excess food from roasts and such in the freezer.
Did some hand hemming on a pair of Harvey's dress pants.
Turned a collar, or two as well as darned a couple pairs of my socks.
I have been working on next years planner, using up paper from when I used to work. I just may have enough to last a few more years. I use an old binder and a few pages and 2 calendar pages printed out on the printer, then lined paper for the days chores (the page holds 4 days lists). To buy one costs around $12.00, my version costs at the most $2.00.
Now for the not so thrifty things.
We bought a new TV stand for the living room, which Harvey will pick up tomorrow. This one has an electric fireplace insert so when things get a bit chilly I can turn it on. Eventually we will mount the TV on the wall giving me a bit more room to place some pictures and such on the top.
Then while making supper (I use the microwave to partially cook the potatoes for scalloped potatoes and ham) my 20 year old microwave gave up the ghost. Since I use this appliance all the time this means I will need to replace it as soon as possible. I only hope which ever one I manage to buy lasts as long as this one did.
Everybody have a wonderful evening.
