While I didn't stick to the menu in detail I am pleased that we stuck to it in spirit. In traveling, we also packed all our meals from the pantry supplies. We also had surprise guests that we fed without having to run out for supplies.
I did some knitting on a sweater vest using leftover yarn from another project.
I took advantage of going out of business sales for Hancock Fabric and JoAnn's. I bought my mama's combined birthday and Mother's Day gift -- a bolt of muslin for quilts. I picked up 5 sewing patterns over half off. I bought two skeins of yarn. I also bought fabric and batting for a blanket for my grandson. While none of it was inexpensive I did buy what was on my running list and I am pleased with what I picked up.
I took advantage of CVS coupons and came home with 3 large bottles of laundry detergent free. I also bought 6 packages of toilet paper and got back $10 in rewards. There was nothing else I needed so I am saving the rewards for next weeks sales.
I found myself two new shirts at the thrift store for good prices.
I sadly broke my glasses and had to go to the eye doctor and order more. I shopped carefully with quality and cost in mind. Still expensive, but turned out to be good. Turns out my headaches were a result of vision changes and it was time for the old to go anyway.
