Thrifty Tuesday


The end of another month, really time is just whizzing by.

So what thrifty things have I been up to this week. 

I walked pretty much every day thus saving fuel and the cost of a gym membership.

I darned a pair of Harvey's socks and he actually said he can't even tell. 

I am using up all those small tubes of hand lotion that I received as gifts from students, and will soon start on the larger ones that Kris always seems to get me when he gets me smelly bath things.

I added some water to my shampoo bottle and will now get some more washes out of it.

Did up the budget numbers today and we are once again under budget. I am hoping that continues until the end of December. It would be nice to finish off a year with extra cash in the bank. 

Everybody have a wonderful evening.

God bless.


  1. It would be nice to finish December with extra cash in the bank. Sounds like a great week for you.:)

  2. Good on you for managing your budget so well, especially at this time of year.
    Have a good day!

  3. great way to enter into a new year. It's nice to walk this time of year it is so fresh

  4. I agree! Extra cash in the bank is a woohoo!
    I laughed when you said Harvey didn't notice anything different with his socks after you darned them. I hope he noticed the hole was gone! haha
    I empty those small bottles into my larger ones and don't worry about different brands. It all helps and cleans them out of here.

  5. Wow .. darning socks .. I cannot yet darn so that it is not felt by the wearer. Need to do more work on that.

  6. I flatly refuse to darn socks but Resident Chef has decided that he will darn the ones I've knitted for him. I'd sooner knit a whole 'nother pair than darn!!

  7. That's wonderful that you are under budget. Well done Jackie. I need to crunch numbers too, but we won't be under budget.
    Have a great weekend!
