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
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!
What did you do to save money last week??
