Frugal Accomplishments

Frugal Things

1. Thrift Store finds

We had a pretty good week for finding things at the thrift store. Ben “hit the jackpot” as he likes to say:)  He found two full size action figures for $1.99 each, a Phineas and Ferb t-shirt for $1.99, and an Avengers t-shirt for $1.49.  Emma found three hardback books in a series that she enjoys for $1.50 each. I found a copy of Mansfield Park to use for a unit in our High School English class next semester for $1.

2. Kroger finds

Kroger had a lot of great deals this week again.  I stocked up on ribs and pork loins for $1.39/lb and one pound blocks of cheese for just $2.50 each.

3. Repaired clothes

I mended a pair of shorts for my husband and took in the sides of a shirt for myself.

4. Halloween decorations

Hocus Pocus

My children decorated for Halloween with items we reuse each year and we watched Hocus Pocus to get in the spirit:)

5. Canned goods

I used home canned pumpkin to bake pumpkin bread for a bake sale….this is the recipe I always use….the only substitution I make is to use brown sugar instead of the suggested white sugar.  This recipe always gets a lot of compliments!
