Two weeks ago, the schools had a February break. We spent most of the week at home, but we did take a family trip to the Children's Discovery Museum. We used our AAA card to get a discount.
I was very happy to see the Christmas cactus blooming again!
I used manila rope and cotton yarn to make the basket. The rope was only $.06 per foot and I used yarn that I already had, so it turned out to be a very inexpensive project. I would like to try another one without the handles.
I used a coupon code to download a crochet pattern for free from Ravelry.
I downloaded several free ebooks to my laptop with the free Kindle for PC app.
I used points I earned from Bing Rewards to purchase a $5 Amazon gift card. My goal right now is to save the gift cards that I earn from Bing Rewards and Swagbacks in order to buy a Kindle Fire. I would love to download books onto the tablet so that I can read them in the car, at school, etc. instead of just on my laptop at home.
I cooked a whole chicken in the crockpot and used frozen vegetable peels with the chicken scraps to make chicken stock. I made chicken noodle soup with some of the leftover chicken.
I used bread ends from the freezer to make meatballs. I cubed the bread and soaked it in milk before mixing into the hamburger mixture.
We borrowed several books from the library.
How did you save this week?
