* Jessica baked a big batch of raspberry and white choc muffins and choc chip biscuits for Uni snacks. She's trying to cut her costs down and avoid the cafeteria ( which is so over priced ).
* Fed the compost bins with kitchen peelings, tea leaves and tea bags.
* Used lots of bread bags to lines the bins.
* Took snacks and water when Jessica and I were out and about for wedding appointments.
* Bought chicken drumsticks for $1.99 kg. Darren and I only eat one each if they are a decent size. The drumsticks cost approximately 60 cents per meal.
* Collected bean seeds from our dying plants. These will be used for next Spring's planting.
* Picked the last of the raspberries.
* Made 12 hot cross buns from scratch. Although they are not cheap to make, I know exactly what's in them. That has to be an investment into our health.
* Baked a chocolate cake and cranberry hootycreek biscuits for the holiday weekend.
* Dried the washing on the line.
* Bought roast beef for $7.99kg. All of them went into the freezer and I'll cook them in ter slow cooker in the next few months.
* Stayed home as much as possible to save the cheap petrol I bought last week.
* Cooked a roast beef on Wednesday and carefully portioned it out into 11 serves with lots of gravy. Darren and I ate it fresh that night and the rest went into the freezer.
* Bought packets of 20 white craft bags for $1 a packet. I used some for Easter treats.
* Saved the washing and shower water to pour into the washing machine.
* Bought more snacks for the engagement party at half price from Coles.
