he usual thrifty things have been happening around the old homestead. I am still in a use it until it is gone kind of mood, and it seems that this just might be a way of lowering our food bill. Now if I could just get carnivore Harvey to be willing to eat more plant based menus more often, I just could get a handle on spending at the grocery store.
Also if I could manage to find a food our aged kitty liked for longer than 3 days things would be much better spending wise.
Still a few new thrifty things happening. I got some hand soaps given to me by a neighbour who it turns out had a skin reaction to them. I should be able to last until the end of the year before having to buy more.
Then at our Prayer Shawl meeting, one of the ladies brought me a bag of cut up t-shirts. Could be that rug is getting even closer to being made. Just have to cut everything to the right size.
I have had 6 no spend days over the last week. Helps with the total for the month.
Hemmed a pair of Harvey's jeans and fixed the elastic on a pair of pj's. I also patched his painting pants. He can get a few more uses out of them.
Best thrifty move was doing all the painting in our bedroom by ourselves.
Everybody have a wonderful evening.
