A Coastal Encounter & Frugal Accomplishments
Joining in with Brandy with this week's Frugal Accomplishments:
I harvested okra, tomatoes, chard, lima beans, pears, parsley from our garden (J also harvested potatoes, peppers, the last pumpkins, & onions)
dried laundry on the line
gave pups baths with homemade dog soap
As you can see from the photos, we took a few days vacation at the coast last week. Though there were a couple of lovely dinner's out, we also had some frugal moments. On our drive to the coast, I spied a discount grocery store, which we stopped at on our way home. I found several good deals, including Maranatha organic peanut butter for 2.29 (reg. 7.29 - I bought 8), a 14# bag of Evolve grain-free dogfood (reg. 24.99) for 6.99, and Annie's organic mac & cheese for .69 (reg. 3.50). All of the above expired sometime in 2015, so nothing out of date. Too bad they're several hours from us. We do have a couple of new discount grocery stores in Asheboro. I've been to one a few times, and plan to visit the other soon.
My list will probably be a little short this coming week as well, as I will be getting ready for a show. I have 6 dozen bars of soap to wrap, along with other preparations. I saw mention of a maple latte online, and have been enjoying them this weekend, homemade of course. It seems just right for the early days of fall.... yum!
