|Hooray for fresh, nearly organic produce from our garden!|
Last week I picked squash from our garden! Yeah! So far we have harvested 1 yellow squash and 3 zucchini. If I had bought those 4 squash at the Farmer's Market they would have cost 3.00. I am thinking about keeping track of what we harvest from our garden this year and how it benefits us financially. In many ways it is hard to really put a price tag on fresh picked, hand grown produce. The excitement on Elijah's face was priceless!
We had some good friends over for dinner this week. I made homemade BBQ, Baked Beans, and Strawberry Poppyseed Salad. Our friends brought a wonderful peanut butter pie. It was so great hanging out with them.
We also had my sister and her boyfriend over for dessert after church. I served peach cobbler with vanilla ice cream.
|Elijah and Evangeline enjoyed making forts and all sorts of hide outs in our den.|
Our family headed to our local city park where we had a great time walking around the lake.
We combined errands together to save money on gas.
I purchased 10 lbs. of chicken leg quarters on sale for .59 a pound. I cooked leg quarters twice last week. I skinned them this time and they tasted great!
I read a book that I had ordered for free through our library's inter-library loan program. I'm glad I didn't buy the book because it turned out to be a big disappointment. I am thankful that I saved at least $20.
I received a free book to review in the mail.
Eva has outgrown some of her 12 month summer outfits so I opened up her next tote of size 18 months. Thankfully there were a few summer outfits in there. Both of our children have small wardrobes since I wash their clothes twice a week. This means that they only have to own enough clothes for a few days. I always do laundry when we visit family and if we stay at a cabin for vacation there is usually a washer and dryer.
The happy hubby and I used a gift card for Olive Garden.
I cut out a dress to sew for my cousin Anna. It is a birthday present even though her birthday was a few months ago. :)
What frugal things did you do last week? I am trying to grow huckleberries this year. Does anyone have any advice?
