I would love to make this a weekly post. Tell me what thrifty thing you did this week. Doesn’t have to be anything spectacular just something that you did this week that was thrifty. We might just be able to learn something from each other’s thrifty ways! I believe very strongly that in order to be truly thrifty thrift has to be practiced in all areas of your life, not just one. Let me know in the comments your thrifty thing, or email it to me. I’ll add it to this post so we can all share in your thrifty triumph!
One thrifty thing I did this week was dry bananas for a cheap healthy snack. It didn’t help though that I ate them all as I was taking them off the trays….
Here are some of the thrifty things you did this week:
I harvested my daughters sunflowers seeds and baked them instead of buying them. ~jlphotomom
We are currently “pantry eating”. We noticed how many groceries we have last shopping trip, so we are going to eat what we have and only buy perishables. This should last us about 3 weeks. ~ Nikro
I have lots of wipes containers now from all those awesome coupons, so after reading an article I didn’t to figure out ways to use them around the house. The article mentioned using them to store plastic bags – I had been trying to think of a better way to do that anyway! I also cut the lids off a couple and put 1 in the junk drawer to hold all the pens and markers together and 1 in the babies drawer to hold all her socks together. Then I used a couple in the bathroom to separate all the free samples I have been receiving =) ~ Valerie
Hubby and I went on a very cheap breakfast date. Our local Hardee’s has 2/$1 sausage biscuits right now and we are sr. coffee age so our coffee is 39 cents. Really cheap date! We love to sit and drink coffee and talk. ~ momma-lana
My husband is a mechanic. We took 1420 pounds of scrap steel parts we had collected over the last month to the scrap yard and made over $90. We turned around and bought groceries for the next two weeks, with lunch money left for the inevitable days that he forgets his lunch at home. ~ Danielle
We will be walking to our local grocery store for pears tomorrow, rather than driving! It’s a couple of miles, so I need to remember to wear real shoes instead of flip flops… ~ Megan
