Today I am sharing kind of an odd mish mash post. Just a few thrifty things that I did throughout the week.
I have spent a lot of time going through stored dishes. I am doing a major purge and downsizing all my beautiful treasures. However, there are always things that I plan to keep for later uses. Above is a picture that I took of some items that I am keeping. I took a picture of the items and printed on the picture what was in this box. Then I printed out a small copy of this and tapped it to the box. I learned my lesson and make sure that I use much smaller boxes when I store dishes. I reuse priority boxes. This way I can manage the box easily and only pull out things that I want to use right then and there.And the boxes all stack nicer.
We have a C.O.R.N. night once a week here. CORN stands for “Clean Out Refrigerator Night”. In other words using up the leftovers. So, I created a soup/chili dinner one night. A little bit of shredded roast beef, a cup of ground hamburger, some leftover corn, a bowl of leftover chili and then I added a bit more things like beans and V8 juice. After a little seasoning, it turned out to be a yummy hearty meal. No one leftover would have made a meal for both Troy and I so, into a pot they all went.
I was all excited to set some time aside to play one day this pas weekend. I planned on recreating this old thrifted topiary tree. The first thing I did was start stripping the old nasty dried up moss off of the cone. Well, best laid plans and all that….I had a massive allergic reaction to this stuff! I started sneezing, my eyes started watering, my hands turned red and itchy and I felt like I couldn’t breathe. I had to stop immediately. go upstairs take some allergy medicine and lay down. Troy dealt with all the stuff for me so, I wouldn’t have to touch the moss again. So, this project was put on hold for awhile. the dangers of crafters/thrifters!
So, those were a few of my thriftiness this week. What were you up to this past week?
