I canned some homemade soup for my husband. I redeemed some coupons on Ibotta and downloaded the Walmart price match app.

I hung one load of laundry to dry, but because we were gone most of the week I wasn't able to space loads out. As a result, I ended up having to dry a load of clothes.  I also had to wash some linens and area rugs that I partially dried in the dryer. On the upside, my electric bill was $45 lower this month.
