Thrifty Tuesday

 This is going to be a short post. I did something to my back while shopping today (and it was a massive spending spree mainly because prices have risen so very much even in the past week). I do believe that I did get enough for the two weeks, perhaps even a bit longer in some cases. I am also hopeful that with fewer shopping trips less "wants" will end up in the cart.

While there didn't seem to be any empty shelves there were a couple of items I could not seem to find. One was shelf stable milk and the other was green peppers.

Today I darned another sock (my socks seem to be wearing out with great regularity). 

Fixed some hooks on a bra.

Used up lots of leftovers for lunches. 

Moved the ripening tomatoes to a place that I can easily see them and use them up.

Got the gladiolus bulbs drying so I can store them downstairs for the winter. 

Sewed batting together to have a big enough piece for my friends quilt. Collected the bits to use in other projects.

Saved the plastic bags to use for recycling, and to clean the kitty litter when Kris brings Eiko, the grandcat to visit.

We had a meeting with our financial planner as Harvey has reached the age where he had to move retirement savings into another vehicle instead of an RRSP. We moved the one into my name as I would be paying the lower tax.

Hopefully my back will be feeling better tomorrow so I can continue on my quest to get a few more of this months projects completed.

Everybody have a wonderful evening. 

God bless.


  1. Wow, prices rose noticeably in two weeks. I haven’t noticed that here but will be on the lookout. Feel. better soon!

  2. My back pain is ongoing (I have scoliosis), so you have my sympathy. It's no fun at all. Fingers crossed that you are feeling better!

  3. I sure hope your back is feeling better soon. It's amazing how many muscles in our backs that we use for everyday movements...and don't know until we hurt it.

    I haven't started my grocery list for this week but I have noticed prices are constantly increasing.

    Take care, stay well!

  4. Oh yikes back problems are the worst. Take care my friend. Love your heating pad.

  5. I wish you lived closer to me Jackie. I got 48 large peppers for $5 at the produce market last week. I would gladly have shared with you :)

    I hope that you & Harvey are both feeling better.
