Frugal Friday With Marsha -- One Day at a Time

This week I've been concentrating each day on cleaning, organizing, and de-cluttering the house.  IF I can keep it up, doing at least one spot each day, I soon will see a noticeable difference.
So far I've gone through piles of papers on my desk (most recycled), totally scrubbed down the stove, cleared one shelf, sorted through 2 totes (where most everything was thrown away unless it could be recycled), and worked on clearing the couch (actually putting the items where they belong).
I need to keep it up!!  Can I?   Decluttering and cleaning also cleans your mind, and I sure need that right now!

Hubby chose to come home each night from work instead of taking the motel since this week he's working 1 hour and 20 minutes from home.  We shopped for groceries for the week, and I think quite well.  We spent right at $100 for the week.   I admit that it's really nice to be having actual home cooked meals instead of my usual frozen entrees and lunchables.

Oh yes, that's the other thing I cleaned out this week....the refrigerator.  I won't go in to detail and gross you out, just imagine it's not been cleaned out for a few months!   We have vowed to not allow left overs to pile up in there ever again.  Tomorrow we will be getting out all the leftovers from the week and having a leftover buffet.

On the food note, today's Friday Freebie will turn into a meal for us next week with one of the pounds of ground beef still in the freezer.

Scratch & Create With Scratch & Draw Enchanted Animals

Scratch & Draw Enchanted Animals is a Scratch & Create book by Marisa Redondo.

This book features 20 decorative and inspirational illustrations to choose from to scratch and draw.   You will find rabbits, owls, foxes, bears, and other wild life.   All are created with simple lines and shapes.   Each page is also perforated so that it's easily removed from the book to work on if you choose, and to display once your picture is complete.

Simply follow the illustrations using the stylus that comes with the book.  The stylus has a line side and a tapered end to scratch larger areas.   I found the surface to scratch off very easily.  What fun to see the picture and the color appear on the page!

I started out with the simplest of the illustrations.  I am no artist, but this is so much fun and hey, I'm not doing half bad with it either!

My daughter chose to do this bear.  You can see that she chose to do some of her own designs instead of following the illustration exactly, which is just part of the fun of this book!

I look forward to finishing my picture and giving a try at another in the book.  I also look forward to sharing the book with my grandchildren as they come over.  The teens will love this concept of art.

If you, or someone you know enjoys drawing, I highly recommend this book!

Also available:  Scratch & Create Folk Art Flowers.

Get 300 bonus SB when you sign up for Swagbucks in June

All throughout June you can earn large bonuses when sign up as my referral on Swagbucks. Swagbucks is a rewards site where you earn points (called SB) for things you're probably doing online already, like searching the web, watching videos, shopping, discovering deals, and taking surveys. Then you take those points and exchange them for gift cards to places like Amazon, Target, or PayPal cash. 

When you sign up through me this month, you can earn a 300 SB bonus! Here's how: 

1. Sign up using this link 

2. Earn 300 SB total before July 1st, 2018. You'll get a 300 SB bonus for it! 

3. That's it. It's super easy, and Swagbucks is for real. I use it myself, and I've earned $3,038 worth of sb that I have redeemed for amazon gift codes, Burger King gift cards, PayPal, Wal-Mart gift cards, and eBay bucks!   There are tons of other choices as well.  Swagbucks has been awesome!  I keep my cats in food and litter.  I have saved to buy larger ticket items such as a laptop, tablets, and even a sewing machine.
