Here are my Frugal Feats for the week of June sixth. Took Lil Bubba to a festival/farmers market. I won a free bottle of Cascade Ice sparkling water, a little flag, a pack of crayons and coloring page, a straw, balloon, and a coupon for six free DVDs at a local pawn shop.
Staying home all day today to conserve on gas.
The only grocery shopping done this week was at a liquidators. I found a flat of blackberries for $1.99. I brought them home and put them on a cookie sheet in the freezer till frozen. Then I put them in a reused whipped topping container for easy dispensing into smoothies. I also found six two pound containers of strawberries for $6.99. That made them fifty eight cents per pound! Does anyone know a good recipe for strawberry syrup?
I was treated to dinner by one of our vendors at work. We ate from my meal plan all week except once when I splurged and we ate out yesterday for lunch.
|These are the blackberries I bought so cheaply. They are huge.|
