|Hand-embroidered handkerchiefs found at our local antique market.|
This week was better, partly because I'm trying to be better about working around our busted oven.
This week's frugal accomplishments:
Sourcing a part to fix the oven rather than buying a new oven (I love my oven!).
Shopped out local antique market for a birthday gift for a friend and scored a few new hand-embroidered handkerchiefs for under $5.00. I was down to one (I tend to give them away, so I need to stock up again).
Cooked a few meals using the stove top and the microwave.
Buggie needed a shirt for school and we found one in a local secondhand shop.
I went to Michael's for a few craft items and found most of them on sale AND used a 20% off the entire purchase coupon AND used what was left on a Christmas gift card.
I purchased a couple of used books and a couple of new books on sale and used a gift card to do so. Two of the books were through our local independent bookstore.
I put together a crafty pack out of items we had at home for the kids to use for Spring Break.
I taught Buggie how to play Battleship Command: Pirates of the Caribbean, a game we've had for years and only played once. She beat me. Twice.
And that's it! I'm hoping we can get the oven working next week, because one of the books I got has recipes I'm dying to try.
