How was I thrifty over the last week?
Really each week I seem to get a bit more into a more thrifty mindset. With the constant increase or limitations on the purchase of meat, I am finding new and interesting ways to take a small amount of meat and fashion a meal that my carnivore of a husband enjoys.
Extra meat is packed away to be used in another meal or three when I make a roast or a chicken.
Today I made a tank top from fabric I bought for at a church rummage sale. Actually they were going to give me all the fabric I picked up for free, but I thought a donation would only be right. So for around a dollar and a bit of work I now am the proud owner of a rather dressy tank top. The scraps were collected and may end up being the edging of another top or perhaps a skirt.
I darned a pair of my socks today, and a pair that was too worn I cut into ties to use in the garden.
Everybody have a wonderful evening.
