Frugal Friday


I have been remiss in posting this past week. I have even been remiss in visiting everyone. It is going to take me awhile to catch up with everyone.

So what are my frugal and thrifty habits for this week.

1.  Opening drapes to allow solar heating to occur. 

2.  Using up meals from the freezer as well as working on cleaning out the pantry and cupboard. I haven't been shopping for over a week and I hope to extend this for a few more days.

3.  Used up 7 balls of yarn from my stash making 2 prayer shawls. I think there is enough for two more (might have gone a bit overboard purchasing this yarn).

4.  Pinned together some 4" squares to make another quilt top and use up the ever growing stash that seems to accumulate.

5.  Reading free downloaded novels on my ereader.

6.  Found $0.75 on my walk and put that in my change jars.

7.  I will add darning socks here, which is also a thrifty habit.

8.  Walked most days for exercise, however there was one day I did something I should not have and so did not walk much at all the next day.

9.  Harvey is doing the laundry under my supervision and has even been hanging things on the lines downstairs.

10.  Saved some elastics and twist ties from produce.

Everybody have a wonderful evening. 

God bless.


  1. You have many good frugal habits. I hope you are feeling better every day. Have a good weekend!

  2. Hi Jackie, been doing a few of these myself, using up freezer meet, leftover containers, and I save the plastic little square ties too, and rubberbands from produce. Thank for stopping over. Enjoy your weekend.

  3. Wow you seem to be clicking right along. I hope you are stopping to relax or snooze. Jean

  4. I love the title of your blog. I've just read many of your posts. You do keep busy with your daily activities including stitching. A temperature quilt as you describe would be wonderful, I think. I too cut lotion tubes to get it all out, LOL. Heal fast now and stay safe.

  5. I don't even want to know what you did that you shouldn't have!! :) I just hope you're okay.

  6. Sounds like a good week for you, Jackie. That number two on your list is an ongoing thing here as I'm sure it is for you too. I hope you are continuing to mend and heal. :)

  7. I wouldn't worry about posting or reading blogs, you're still in recovery. It sounds like you're keeping yourself and Harvey busy. :)

    Take care, stay well.

  8. I've not been posting so much lately either. Not an awful lot going on to post about I'm afraid.

  9. Dear Jackie, your "remiss" is my "on the ball" - lol.
