It's Friday again, I really try and not wish the week away, but I just love Fridays. The weekend is just around the corner with all sorts of possibilities, the working week is over and we can wind down a bit. I got the chance last Sunday to stay at home and do some baking, sewing and gardening, I was in heaven! I consider these things to be frugal and doing these simple things bring me so much joy and peace. They are done quietly and slowly with a rhythm that brings me bone deep contentment.
So, this weeks 5 frugal things on a Friday are
1. Finished the top of a small Quilt, that will be a gift. I buy the fabric from a store on the Redcliffe Peninsula called "JJ'S" it has been around for over 40 years and the patchwork fabric sells for $6.00 a meter. I think that is very good value for money
|The top of this small quilt is finished, I need to back it, quilt it and finally, bind it|
|This will be a good size bag when it is finished, I will take a photo when it is completed|
|Asian Chicken Noodle Salad before the noodles were added|
|A moveable and delicious dinner|
|Golden Chicken Stock. I have frozen this stock (about a cups worth) in a ziplock bag. I freeze it flat so it defrosts in no time|
5. Watered the garden from our tank water
So, tell me, what were your frugal achievements this week?
