The Ways of My Household 8/21/2017

This has been one of those 'out of my normal routine' kind of weeks but that didn't stop me from acting on my 'pantry mindedness!'

Yes, I have 'pantry mindedness!' 

While doing my pantry inventory a couple of weeks ago, I found some applesauce that was getting close to ‘the need to be used date’ so I turned it into fruit roll ups using my dehydrator.  I then froze and added them to the freezer part of my pantry.  These will make a good snack for the twins when they come to visit.  Waste not, want not!

You've 'heard' me mention the headlamps I used during the power outages of  Hurricane Matthew and about how handy they were.  My husband found this one on clearance at Home Dept for $7 and snatched it up.   He did good!!!! 

Annabel from The BlueBirds are Nesting inspired me to fine tune my thrift store shopping preparedness in a topic she did for me in my private WP group.  I have an ongoing list of things I look for when I have the opportunity to go thrift shopping that I keep on my phone but now, as a back-up, I also have it written down in a small spiral notebook that fits inside my purse.  One of the other things she mentioned was always having a tape measure with you when thrift shopping.  That way you will be able to measure to see if an object will fit where you need it to before buying … and of course you will have the dimensions written down on your thrift store list. I’m housing my notebook and small tape measure in my purse.  A girl’s got to be prepared; you just never know when a thrift store shopping stop might present itself!   

I had a 60% off coupon for JoAnn's but all the things I had on my list were on sale. The coupon wouldn't work on sale items and the sales were really not that good so .... I walked out of the store not having time spent one cent!

That's it for me, like I said it's been an 'I'm out of my normal routine' kind of week!

What have you done to live frugally or build up your pantry this week?

She looketh well to the ways of her household … Proverbs 31:27
