Hi All! Happy Friday. The end of a crazy, but good school week. Our main computer is having trouble so I can't put up any pictures...bummer...
Some great frugal highlights (okay to me they are):
-Taking the teen Financial Peace with our teens - It really has given me a push to keep going and is it more intense than the adult version!
-Use leftover anything, ie. birthday plates! We used some for serving dishes (from Valentines day ) for our littlest chicks birthday this past weekend. (One mom commented on how cute they were!)
-Don't throw out if it seems cheap enough to rebuy. Those items add up!
This week I found a chip in my pyrex measuring cup (it's my old friend...). Superman being the clever man that he is, took my baby down stairs and filed her with a metal file until she was nice and smooth. What would a baker be with out her! (Actually I'm a dab here, a handful there kind of girl.)
Now, I also want to make a disclaimer!!!! Make sure it's really smooth (no chips, cracks,etc) and won't hurt any of your brood! When it DOUBT DO THROW IT OUT!
- If your into eating lot of veggies find a produce co-op, community garden, or 4-H to get involved in. Your Local Extension Service is there to help you with all your needs and cheer you on. We live in a very sandy area, 7 minutes to the nearest beach; so there has been a HUGE
learning curve in gardening for us!
-Don't buy it on clearance or at a rock bottom price if you can't use it within the next 6 months! Have I had to remind myself of this one!!! How many pairs of $1.98 shoes can one child wear??? The Lord has REALLY BEEN REMINDING me that HE is in charge and will take care of us. I don't have to buy shoes for little Jimmy 3 sizes to big. HE will bring other blessings my way when they are needed and sometimes just wanted.
Not to original, but a good reminder. For more Frugal Friday tips click on Biblicalwomanhood in my side bar. Have a great day!
