My Frugal Accomplishments

For the week of 5/6/2013- 5/13/2013

Picked up free bags from my local recycling center. The man gave me 3 packs since I don't get there that often.

Babysat made $50

Picked up 55 yogurt cups for free. They were a managers special with a 50 cent peelie. They rang up 50 cents making them all Free!!! What a steal.

Joined a co-op and placed my first order for grass fed and raw dairy. The prices are comparable with conventional food prices.

Baked 3 loaves of bread.

Had a potluck of leftovers for dinner one night.

Made goat cheese from failed goat milk yogurt.

Passed on material presents for Mother's day and got exactly what I wanted. A family barbeque dinner that I didn't have to cook.

Processed 3 of my chickens myself. Got a little over 20 lbs. of fresh meat!

  1. That bread is gorgeous -- just lovely. What a simple idea to make something a little more special!

    1. Thank you Sandra. I really love this bread recipe. This loaf was stuffed with caramelized onions. Yummy!

  2. I can not believe you got the coupon value on those yogurts. Score!

    1. I know it was such a great deal I made 2 trips. Who can pass up free? Thank you May for stopping by.
