The Ways of My Household 8/14/2017

We've had a rainy, humid and hot week weather wise which meant not much outside work was done.  We had plenty of things that kept us busy though!  Here's what our week looked like pantry and savings wise ...

I made this low-carb granola.  The only thing I did different was I left out the stevia extract and used ¼ cup Gentle Sweet instead of Swerve.  It was plenty sweet.  I really like this so it’s going in my collection of low-carb recipes.  (I used a coffee/herb grinder to grind up the nuts.) 

I earned a $10 Amazon gift card through Swagbucks.  

We found Skippy Natural Peanut Butter on clearance, 2 (40 oz jars) pack for $5.91. We were glad to find this as peanut butter was something we were getting low on.

We also found 5 lbs of Red Mill gluten free flour on clearance for $.91.  We added a couple of bags of that to our pantry as well.

We found cherries on sale for $3.49 for a 3 lb container.  This made them a little over $1/lb which is a very good price!  I had intentions of  de-seeding and freezing them to go in the freezer for smoothies … but that didn’t happen!   They sure are tasty!

I finished reading Harvest of Blessings by Charlotte Hubbard and started reading The Christmas Cradle also by Charlotte Hubbard.   Both books came from the library!

The horn went out on our vehicle.  My husband purchased the needed part and repaired it himself.  This saved us quite a bit!

I read on Harvest Lane Cottage about how Laura treated a cut on her finger that had gotten infected, using colloidal silver and bentonite clay.  This goes along with the research I've done on both of these, so I've added it to my herbal/home remedies.

We continued to do our normal savings things, feed the compost bin and cook from scratch.

That’s it for me this week, what did you do to build up your pantry or live frugally?
