My mom lives near two different Goodwill stores and shops there often. I asked her several months ago if she would keep an eye out for the Joy of Cooking cookbook. I was so excited when she found one - and for just $4!
I refilled the foaming hand soap dispenser with a little bit of liquid hand soap that I got on sale last year and mixed with water.
I printed this free Thanksgiving printable on textured paper that I bought many years ago and used a frame I already had for a quick and easy Thanksgiving decor. I like it so much, though, that I might keep it up even after Thanksgiving!
I froze the extra squash after making Butternut Mac & Cheese to use another time.
One of my husband's coworkers gave us ground lamb to try.
