The Week that Was 9th April 2017


Australian Butcher in Boronia had great meat and chicken sales. I used some slush fund money and some of the meat budget to start to refill the freezer. Chicken fillets $4.69/kg, mince $6.99/kg, silverside $5.99/kg, sausages $4.39/kg.

Hannah and I did a stockpile top-up shop at Aldi.

Defrosted and restocked the small freezer.

Cooked all our meals from scratch.

Spinach and ricotta ravioli - Hannah's favourite, she saves leftovers for work lunches

Saved brown paper from a parcel to reuse as wrapping paper. It only took a few minutes to iron it flat and it is as good as new.

With the warm, windy weather I've been able to wash summer quilts and blankets and get them put away. I brought out the winter blankets and doonas and aired them on the clothesline before I put them on our beds. That was a big job and took two days. I love this time of year when the days are sunny and warm, with a light breeze, and the nights are cool enough to sleep comfortably.

Used my Community Chemist discount to get scripts filled and saved $5.40.

Ordered a 4 litre container Eucalyptus oil and shared it with three friends. Worked out to be a $21.25 (total $85) saving for each of us over buying the small bottles.

What did you do to save money, time and energy this week?
