Thrifty Tuesday


Not many thrifty moves this past week but there were a few.

Packed all food (except for a couple of items like eggs and milk) for our vacation.

Made a lunch to eat while coming back from leftovers from the trip and brought what we didn't use up home.

Darned a pair of socks today (the extent of mending for the week). 

Using up all that I can.

Borrowed 2 recipe books from Kurt that struck my fancy and found lots of recipes in the one I have perused. Some are even good for batch cooking which is what I would like to do, others that I have looked at make you cook a lot for one meal and then the leftovers can be made into other meals that are totally different.

I did my shopping today and I am hopeful that I bought enough to last us for two weeks. What with the Delta variant taking hold here I am hopeful of keeping visits out of the house down to a minimum. 

Used orphan balls and yarn that has been around for awhile in my knitting projects. Hopefully this will clear out space.

Everybody have a wonderful evening.

God bless.


  1. I still darn socks but it is something few people do these days.

  2. Batch cooking is something I enjoy doing, but now that I'm down to just the fridge freezer it doesn't work as well. On the other hand it has reduced the amount I purchase as well as waste, since I don't lose things in the freezer like I used to.

    The numbers of Covid are certainly concerning, at least for most of us.

  3. You know packing food for a trip and making your own is a real savings.

  4. I know what you mean about not wanting to go shopping at the moment. We have discovered the joys of online grocery ordering and then using the curbside pickup feature. At least that way there's minimal human contact.
