Frugal Friday! How I Saved This Week!

Prices seem to go up every year for just the basics.
Unfortunately, our income often doesn't match the pace
of the increase for costs of goods.
"A penny saved is a penny earned"
is something I heard very often while growing up.
So, here are a few of the ways I saved some of our pennies this week,
which in turn allows us to live comfortably on less.
With the snow on the way and the temperatures dropping
I took the time to make sure all our windows were locked and sealed,
which keeps the cold air out, the warm air in,
and saves on our heating costs.
I used cloth napkins instead of paper napkins.
I used old grocery bags to line the garbage cans.

From a bit of leftover roast I made a Beef Noodle Soup
which will be hubby's lunches while he works night shifts.

made some homemade bread.
More economical than buying bread,
which is quite pricey right now
and also better tasting!
I took the bits of meat off from the turkey bones
and made a dinner of Turkey Stew & Dumplings!
Very yummy indeed :)
How did you save money this week?

  1. Christmas is coming up and I determined a while back that I was going to make as many of our Christmas gifts to give away as possible. This made making soap on the priority list this week. I made three batches so that will be plenty to give as gifts and plenty for us here at the house. The only soap I buy anymore is Ivory to grate up for my homemade laundry detergent. :)

    1. I so enjoy homemade soap! My mom usually gives me some every year. I do have to admit though, it is one thing I have not tried making myself!


Thanks so much for stopping by and taking the time to leave a comment. I enjoy reading each one so much and will try to get back to each one of you. Have an amazing day!
