This week I made Whole Wheat Toaster Pastries, Fail-Proof Pizza Crust and Apple Almond Bars. I used the leftover egg whites from the Apple Almond Bars to make an egg white omelet for lunch. We also ate two meatless meals.
I have saved a lot of time and money by using pancakes (for pancake sandwiches) and blueberry mini muffins from the freezer to put in the boys' lunchboxes, but I discovered this week that the school meals are free for our younger son who is in the Pre-K program!
We picked tomatoes and winter squash from our garden.
I cashed in Swag Bucks for two $5 Amazon gift cards.
In my mailbox: a free magazine.
Our on-going savings:
**Wash laundry in cold water.
**Save kitchen scraps and eggshells for the compost.
**Use online bill pay to pay our bills.
**Follow a weekly meal plan.
**Earn Swag Bucks for Amazon gift cards that I use to buy gifts.
**Earn Recyclebank points for gift cards, coupons and free magazine subscriptions.
**Husband takes lunch to work everyday.
**Turn lights off when not being used.
**Use scrap paper for notes and lists.
**Drive to town once a week for shopping and errands.
**Buy less cereal and eat oatmeal and other homemade breakfasts several times a week.
**Reuse plastic and paper shopping bags for small trash and recycling.
