The Vicky Challenge: May 30th, 2016

I/we had a better week in the saving department this week, read on to see what I mean ...

I/we saved/earned $502.87 this week in The Vicky Challenge!  

Here’s how it breaks down:

We were given this whole trailer load of wood, cost to us … gas to go get it:  Saved: $400 (When this is split and stacked it will be enough wood for our heating needs next winter. We stand in awe of God’s provision for us!)

Harvested 70 spring green onions ($.92 per bunches of 10); one and a half pints of raspberries ($4.64 per pint); 3 medium cucumbers ($1.30/pound); 1 ounce of lavender ($2.06/ounce) ... Saved$ 20.82

Was given fresh from the ground potatoes, squash fresh off the plant and broccoli cut fresh from the plant. Saved $12.56

We were also given 2 loaves of bread. Saved $5

Chickens laid 2 dozen eggs this week:  Saved $6

Saved $12.50 by taking advantage of sales, coupons and clearance items. 

Downloaded Lovely Lavender, the Universal Herb for free.  Saved:$5.99  

Yard work/gardening/landscaping (does not include mowing) (4 hours x $10 per hour for labor):  Saved $40

Thus far this year my Vicky Challenge savings/earnings have been $6,550.45, add this week’s amount ($502.87) and I/we have saved $7,053.32.  I'm really enjoying seeing how much I/we save/earn through being frugal!
