Thrifty Tuesday

It is already the second week of the month! Christmas will be upon us before we can say Santa Claus is coming to town.

The temperatures have dropped dramatically. When I awoke this morning it was -29C with a wind chill of -38C. Brrr, the perfect weather to stick close to home and get things completed.

As far as thrifty moves this week goes there are a few that stand out.

Harvey had a few socks that needed to be darned and a few that were way past darning again. Those that were past being fixed I cut up to be used to tie plants up next growing season.

Opening the drapes to let the sun in heats up the house just perfectly. We have been lucky in that the sun has been shining and the heat that is generated usually means the furnace does not kick in until later in the day. Shutting them keeps the cold air out of the house come evening.

I have made soup a couple of times this past week, using up the little bits from the crisper. Tonight I actually used up a package of frozen leftover roast beef making beef barley soup. The remains of which are cooling in two containers and will be put in the fridge in a bit (must remember to label them first). 

Everybody have a wonderful evening.

God bless.

  1. We got cold yesterday too. I'm hoping the forecast is correct and we'll see a bit of a warm up by Sunday.

    Stay warm!
