The Week that Was 23rd July 2017

This has been a very busy week. For the first time in months I've felt well enough to do more than just the basics, so I took advantage. I'm exhausted again, but it's a nice exhaustion, knowing our freezer is stocked, the pantry is looking good and our home is getting back to normal.

This week I was able to buy diced tomatoes, chick peas, lentils and kidney beans for 69c a can at Woolworths.

Used a Flybuys offer to buy a lamb roast for half price.

Bought 10kg potatoes from Farmer Joe's in Boronia for $1.98/5kg bag. They are now in the hessian sacks at the back of the kitchen pantry.

Did lots of baking: sultana cake, date loaf, cupcakes, lemon syrup cake, brownies, sausage rolls, quadruple batch of spaghetti sauce, bread, meat pies and fruit pies.

Collected the shower warm-up water and added it to the washing machine.

Kept the fire going to keep the house warm, it has been very cold here.

Dried the washing on clotheshorses next to the fire.

Used a Flybuys offer to get 10c/litre off petrol - filled up the Patrol, ready for our next trip.

Sold some cards to a friend.

Cleaned the oven using bicarb soda and vinegar. Soaked the racks in the laundry sink with dishwasher powder - they came up like new.

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