The week flew past.
Some of the ways I saved money this week were:
I got two off cuts of beautiful fabric from Spotlight really cheaply. For $2 I got pale blue softest thick fluffy fabric suitable to make heat packs in winter and cream ruffled fabric that I will recover lampshades with.
I earned a $5 Woolies voucher from shopping points.
Found an old style tin watering can on the road size. I love it!
I cleaned my dishwasher, took out the spray arm thingys... and cleaned it properly. Big difference!
Decorated my wool wash to make it suitable to give as gifts and also some of the laundry liquid.
I planted lots more parsley seeds into pots plus packaged up some seeds to give away.
Repotted two hydrangeas I was given for free.
Sent two presents in the mail and stuck to my small to post rule!
Made several batches of soap. This gives me supplies and gifts. I will package them for gift giving later as now they need to dry out and mature. Meanwhile it looks like a soap afternoon tea party as they are around the house on my cake stands and plates. I like it, they look pretty and smell good.
All the recipes will be next Wednesday on The Christmas Challenge.
Some of the ways I feathered my nest include:
Repainted a table. Looks much better.
Spray painted another cake stand.
Re painted a pretty tray.
Decorated a giant candle in my hallway.
I got ahead quite a bit in my gift making, soap supplies, and a years worth of laundry liquid!
So it was a good week.
How was your week and how did you save money and build up your home?
Two things are happening today that should help me build up my home lots! One is Chloe is returning from the country with buckets of figs! She and my niece went picking figs on three trees. Three giant fig trees, covered in figs. Two kinds of figs actually. I might not get them until tomorrow but they are coming!
AND tonight I am meeting Cath and Wendy at the new Aldi and we get a private group tour/introduction, samples and info. I am very excited. In the letter box I have had two specials leaflets which have been amazing and I signed up for emails also. I can see this is going to radically change my shopping budget. I am a willing learner. I know this potentially could save us a lot per year. So I intend to be a star pupil! I hope I will learn some tips I can share with you next week!
Have a great weekend! xxx
