The Week that Was 30th July 2017

This week has flown by.

Some of my frugal habits this week have been:

Cooking all our meals from scratch, using ingredients already in the pantry, fridge and/or freezer.

Batch cooking Tuesday's Chicken Alfredo and freezing three meals for the future. It only takes about 10 minutes more to do a quadruple recipe, and saves me time when it appears on the meal plan next.

Catching the shower warm-up water and tipping it into the washing machine.

Picking more mandarins from the tree.

Making Six Minute Lemon Butter.

Juicing, zesting and freezing lots of lemons that my sister-in-law gave me.

Dried the washing on the clothesline when it was windy, and by the fire when it was raining or damp and cloudy.

Baked lots of treats and used the oven to help warm the kitchen.

Repaired the shoulder seam on a t-shirt that was coming apart.

Worked on some Christmas gifts.

Finished a dishcloth for the present box.

Used a voucher from Hannah to get 10 cents/litre off petrol.

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