Pantry Challenge #33 ... 2015

This week found me finally giving in and going to the doctor for a respiratory issue I’ve been fighting for about a month.   One of the medications I was given sent me into a 36 hour period of no sleep and then I only slept for 1 hour before I was wide awake again.  I have never been able to not sleep; I’m one of those people who only have to get still in order to go to sleep so this has been quite an experience.  I’ve taken the medication before, but it has never affected me this way!   

This experience has certainly factored into what I was able to do this week ... but like I always say, a little is better than none!

I harvested the last of the elderberries.   We were able to grow enough this year to meet our needs.  Yeah!  One more thing we don’t have to purchase!!!

I had some stained clothing that I removed the buttons from before repurposing.  I added the buttons to my button jar.

I made scones using this recipe!  It was super easy!  We added a bit of low sugar jelly on top and had a nice treat.

We butchered and preserved more chickens this week.  The meat part of our pantry is getting a much needed boost!

I planted 4 more lemon seeds that I had sprouted.  I’m anxiously waiting to see if they will come up!

We purchased some marked-down bananas we found while out running errands one day.  We rarely buy bananas unless we find them on mark-down.

I made granola this week for an upcoming event.  I made the granola at 4 a.m. when I couldn’t sleep!

We upgraded to Windows 10 this week free of charge.  I like it better than Windows 8 and you can’t beat the price!

I shopped from my gift trunk for a wedding gift.   This is the second time within the last month that I’ve needed a wedding gift and both times I’ve been able to shop from my gift trunk!  Win!  Win!

Now it’s your turn, what have you done to build up your pantry or live frugally?
