Hey everyone! It was good to unplug for a few days, but I’m glad to be back.
How about a Five Frugal Things post to kick things off?
1. I checked around for a deodorant sale price.
Lisey was out, so I searched to see if the kind she uses was on sale anywhere. I found a buy one, get one 50% off sale at CVS, with a $2 ExtraCare Bucks offer. And I had $3 in ExtraCare Bucks to use on my purchase as well. Yay!
2. I planted the ends of two green onions.
I actually did this about a week ago, and as you can see, they’re growing quite nicely.
They’re growing in a pot I salvaged from the things some neighbors left behind when they moved rather suddenly.
3. I re-potted my basil and parsley.
Some months ago, I bought small basil and parsley plants for a recipe. I managed to keep them alive through the dark winter days, so yay me!
Since it’s warm now, I replanted them in pots (with one basil plant in my front bed) so that they can get healthier.
4. I used some of my compost.
I kind of hate buying potting soil, so I just added some of my compost to the soil in the pots to give the plants a bit of a boost.
I also mixed some into the dirt in the bed where I planted the basil.
I’m guessing this will have something close to the effect of fresh potting soil. Or at least I hope it will!
5. I ate leftover pizza for lunch.
I don’t adore leftover pizza, no matter how I heat it up (I’ve tried all of the ways, I think!), but hey, leftovers are some of the cheapest things you can choose to eat.
And eating leftovers prevents food waste like nobody’s business.
