Summer brings other expenses, but I have managed to keep spending on yard items to a minimum so far this year. We could use another umbrella on the deck, but that might have to wait for another year or until I can find one on our online garage sale sites. We shall see what happens.
Thrifty happenings here this past week have been small but mighty.
I made sugar scrub as I have gone through the scrubs I have made previously.
Windows open at night when it has cooled off.
Using up items in my fridge and pantry well.
Getting rhubarb harvested in the garden and either freezing for use later in the year or using up now. I would love to try and make rhubarb vodka or brandy. Need to get on that with the next harvest.
Making sweets for later in the summer when it gets too hot to bake very much.
Cut up some t-shirts to use for rags.
Tried out my new wet mop pads, and will need to tweak them a bit.
Not using the stove or oven as much, finding different ways of cooking our meals. This keeps the house cooler.
Everybody have a wonderful evening.
