Did a week’s worth of grocery shopping at Aldi and stayed under my $125 weekly budget.
Had company for dinner 2 evenings and didn’t have to purchase anything extra.
Used up lemons that have been in the fridge by making a lemon meringue pie.
My mother in law gave us the 8 large blueberry bushes from her garden that she no longer wanted. My in laws also gave us thirty-two bags of mulch, each being 2 cubic feet! This is enough to mulch the entire front of our home by the shrubs. They also gave us two 8′ cattle panels to use as a trellis for the cucumber bed this year.
I started corn, cucumbers, eggplant, peppers, and chili pepper seeds in small green houses we were given.
We direct planted peas, carrots, beets, radishes, and scallions.
We are borrowing a t-post hammer and puller from family instead of purchasing the tools ourselves.
My husband and I went out on a date to a restaurant using a gift card that we were given at the holidays.
I purchased 6 fruit trees from Home Depot, and used a $10 off $100 purchase coupon that they emailed me because I am a member of their Garden Club.
I purchased new picture frames for our living room at Joann Fabrics. The frames were 40% off, plus we were able to use a 20% off your total purchase coupon to save even more. I then matted my own photo instead of purchasing a custom mat – saving us over $40!
We made our own Easter candy instead of purchasing it. My children love it, and it feels more meaningful to make them something instead of buying them something.
We received several beautiful white hyacinths as Easter gifts. For now, these flowers will be enjoyed inside, but then we will transplant them outdoors so that they come back year after year.
