These were not the actual Duplos we bought, but are one of Ben’s many creations

 

So far so good!

This week at the thrift store, we bought a set of Duplo blocks for $3 and a beautiful twin size quilt for $3.

9. Five dollar weekly challenge

 

charity
$20 bought all of these items to donate this month!

 

My mom had lots of coupons for toothbrushes and toothpastes, so we used those at Kroger and got a nice variety of items for just $.38 each.  I also added some pantry items that we had gotten for free/cheap over the past few months that we will not use to donate to my church’s food pantry.  Overall, I have been amazed at how much $5 a week can buy for charity, especially if you have coupons and find great sales.
