Here's my frugal list for the week -
* Cut up a cereal packet ( the bag ) into squares to put between crumpets and hamburgers patties when I freeze them.
* Our feijoa tree is dropping lots of fruit. Each day for the last week I've been picking up handfuls of fruit from the ground. I'm not a big fruit eater but I could eat a bucket of feijoas each day.
* Made a big pot of chunky chicken and veggie soup from the stock I made last weekend. I also had another chicken carcass on hand so I made another slow cooker full of stock. I didn't need more soup at the time so the stock has gone into the freezer.
* Made sausage rolls from the really cheap sausage mince I bought a few weeks ago. Some sausage rolls were eaten for lunch by the family and the rest went into the freezer for snacks.
* Made ANZAC biscuits for morning teas this week. I used a couple of logs of dough I'd frozen a couple of months ago.
* Baked four loaves of wholemeal bread with extra goodness.
* Baked pumpkin scones using cooked pumpkin I'd frozen last Summer. Most of the scones went into the freezer for morning teas. No wonder I rarely have room in my freezer with things being taken out, cooked the placed in the freezer again. It does save us lots of money though.
* Donated another bag of goodies to Savers and received another discount stamp. Jessica and I bought a few items of clothing for Luka in the next size up and received 20% off. When Luka comes to visit or stay with us, we like to be prepared with some changes of clothing.
* Fed the compost bins with kitchen scraps almost every day.
* Fed bread crusts and cauliflower leaves to the chickens.
* Saved the washing machine rinse water and shower warm up water to pour into the washing machine for each next load.
* Froze lots of leftover into single serves. My stockpile seems to grow so quickly. I'm thinking I need to write freezer meals into the menu plan for every Sunday night.
* Mended a cardigan and Jessica took up a few pairs of trousers.
