1. I called Method about their soap dispensers.
I like foaming soap because it seems to be a lot less wasteful than regular liquid soap. But the last two dispensers I got from Method became nearly unusable after just one refill.
(The top just stayed down when you pressed it.)
So, I called them and it turns out that they had a manufacturing defect recently, so they sent me two new pumps to go on my existing bottles.
2. I bought Mr. FG some Goodwill silverware.
I have been known, on occasion, to forget to put silverware in his lunchbag. And frugal leftovers are really no good if you haven’t got utensils to eat them with!
So, I picked up some $0.25 silverware at Goodwill to put in his glove compartment for situations such as these.
(I know he could keep some disposable utensils in his car instead, but man, that stuff is generally terrible to eat with, especially the forks. Metal utensils are so much better!)
3. I used up a bunch of veggies this weekend.
I made roasted carrots twice, I made roasted butternut squash twice, and we had roasted broccoli with our polenta and eggs last night.
I never struggle to use up the fruit from my Hungry Harvest boxes, but I do get behind on the veggies sometimes.
This is why my Hungry Harvest box is good for me…the veggies are here, and it kinda forces me to cook and eat them.
4. I hung up a watercolor using a frame I already had.
My friend Beth (you might remember her from my birthday) sent me some watercolor paintings that she did herself, and this weekend, I hung one up in the office, using a frame that was in the Goodwill pile.
Sometimes it works out nicely that I forget to take things to Goodwill.
…planned a menu for the upcoming week, made two meatless meals this weekend, brewed coffee at home, organized my fridge so as to avoid food waste, and sent some bills to Cigna for reimbursement.
