Sunday Ramblings

September 8th, 2019 at 08:31 am

Today so far has been great.
Hit the grocery store and only bought what was on the list. I was tempted to buy other unnecessary things but the cash envelopes ✉️ said no.

I really want some fall decor for the house 🏡 but, opted not to purchase anything. Saving money is the goal and I need hurricane 🌪 shutters.

I came home and balanced a few accounts. I’m glad that rather than putting things off, I’ve been adding the transactions daily. Updated the cash envelopes and now I’m just relaxing. Later I’ll put a load of laundry 🧺 in. I’m thinking I should now, since it’s so hot and I can line dry.

I have left over chicken 🐔 from the storm ⛈ that I’ll cut up and make chicken pot pie 🥧. Ibotta had $.75 cash back on two bags of frozen vegetables 🌽, well Birds Eye was a $1 a bag at Walmart so for two it can’t out to $1.25. Not bad. There was a time I’d throw this chicken away.

Lastly I spent $22 on gas ⛽️, not bad. Last week, I saved on gas because I did not have to travel to and from work. I’m hoping to convince my boss by next year to allow me to work one day a week from home.

Oops I unplugged those cable boxes that I no longer use and changed the air filter.

I literally put a load of clothes outside to dry and in about 30 minutes they’re almost dry, wow

    Good savings on the line drying. Wish we could do that, but with allergies, it is a definite no.

    Very good use of chicken and making the pot pie. Made me hungry!

    Is there anything you already have that you can turn into fall decor? Maybe a little Pinterest searching? I found a tan candle and a clear glass vase and put some of those glass flat marble like things in it for a little decor. I had it all so no money spent. I have other stuff to put out that I've bought in the past.

    I should try the line drying again. I actually did it inside at another home. It didn't save us anything, but today I had to run a really full load twice to get it to fully dry. I probably did too big of a load. Trying to be efficient, but didn't end up that way.

    Good tip, rob, on the fall decor!

    @CCF I was surprised with how things turned out. I didn’t have any fabric softer, so I used Frebreeze after bring them in. I will say, as soon as the items dried I brought them in, that way they wouldn’t be stiff

    What's your chicken pot pie recipe, Amber? I've been looking for a good one.

    Working from home is a great way to save money - on gas, make-up, clothes, food... It's been a game changer for us.
