Frugal Friday With Marsha -- Things Work Out


Sometimes I am amazed how things work out. How the Lord does provide just as he promises he will.

I, myself, did very little grocery shopping last week. Just a gallon of milk, a jar of pasta sauce, a dozen eggs, a box of Hamburger Helper, a cantaloupe, and 4- 2 ltrs of Dr.Pepper.
Yes, all of it had rebates from ibotta.

My mom gave us a package of sausage patties, which with eggs and toast made a nice breakfast for supper.
I cooked up the last 2 turkey patties and cut them up for the meat in our spaghetti another supper.
I cooked a huge whole chicken in the crockpot that made chicken sandwiches the first night and then a pot of chicken and noodles that we ate 2 nights in a row.
We did splurge one evening when my daughter and her family were in town for my granddaughters 4th birthday, and we went and bought 3 of the $5 Little Caesar's pizzas.

I've been so grateful for the $50 amazon that I cashed out for with the Lucktastic app, along with earnings from my amazon affiliate. It's paid for 80 lbs of cat litter and 66 lbs of cat food for our animals. It's time now to get it added back up though so that I can order more...hopefully before what we still have is gone. Amazon Prime is awesome with the free shipping!

I don't know yet what this week's shopping will bring. It's been a whirlwind week and I don't even know what gift cards I have available. I spent one of my $5 Target gift cards buying Zelda some gifts from the Spot for her birthday last Friday.

How has your week been?

WIP Wednesday 6/10/15

I didn't end up posting last week.  Not sure why other than I only had sewed together this mess of green 4-patches for the soscrappy challenge color of green last month.  They are still now in a bag, still needed to be cut apart, pressed, and squared up.
This months color is light blue.  I intend to just do blue with the 4 patches, which will include some light blue.  I say intend as I do have a quilt show to finish things for too.

I did manage to finish the tops of the rest of my fractured pineapple blocks.  I still have a long ways to go to finish this quilt as one that I will be entering into the quilt show in July.  I won't be working on it anymore until Friday evening when I go to sit n' sew at the quilt shop.
