A Penny Saved #2

There were some frugal misses this week, but some successes too.

  1.  Made a batch of my favorite soap recipe using half mango and half peach fragrance because I had a little of each to use upDSC02396.jpg
  2. Switched to Kirkland brand laundry detergent.  I had been using Tide Pods for the super practical reason of thinking they looked good on the shelf in a clear container.  I realized my laundry room is not beautiful, and went for the big orange jug.DSC02356.jpgOh wait my laundry room looks like this:DSC02347.jpg
  3. We stayed home through a very rainy weekend that felt boring.  But we persevered! DSC02354.jpg
  4. But then… I spent $200 ordering berry plants from Gurney’s, and then since my pepper seeds seem to have at last croaked, I ordered more of those, AND giant jalapeño seeds that intrigued me, AND early girl tomato seeds since I’ve never grown them before, AND a new seed starting set up.  All of this is okay, but AFTER I ordered I read dozens of very poor reviews of the company.
  5. Kept the fire going all week and the heat didn’t kick on once.
