I all the time really feel like I publish many how-to’s and never many “actual lifes”. Though I do attempt to incorporate that into my newer posts, I’ve usually thought that it could be much more useful for my readership to get a greater glimpse inside what our easy/homestead/from scratch/frugal life actually seems to be like.
Frugal Friday Week 17
So I’ve began a brand new sequence referred to as Frugal Friday and want your assist. My thought for this sequence is to share a few of the initiatives/recipes/issues we labored on this week and, generally, simply what life seems to be like.
I want your assist as a result of I’ve tried one thing related earlier than, and I gave up after some time. I bought bored, felt like nobody was studying it or cared, and I moved on to different initiatives. So what I want you to do every week is to share what your week appeared like within the feedback part. I feel it might hold us ALL accountable and will function an encouragement to others!
So let’s dive proper into this week!

Breakfasts are a rotation of the identical proper now: Yogurt and Granola, Pancakes, Oatmeal, Banana Bread, Egg Sandwiches, Waffles, Eggs and Toast.
For Lunches we had: Leftovers, Large Plate, Quesadillas, Loaded Nachos, Chili Cheese Bowls, Mac and Cheese, and Grilled Cheese.
Suppers had been: Snacky supper (you already know what I imply!), Sticky Ribs (new recipe), Pancake Bar (birthday meal!), leftovers, Hen Salad, Roast and Carrots
Buying I Did
Since my husband needed to be within the large metropolis this week I put in an order from Sprouts for him to select up. It was good to have a number of various things to eat and even a number of “comfort” meals for these loopy busy days outdoors! This weekend is our supply for our bulk meals coop so I received’t want anything once more for some time.
I actually haven’t been doing a lot procuring recently in any respect…perhaps it’s as a result of I’m too busy cleansing out and I don’t need any extra “stuff” so as to add to the piles?
Exterior Initiatives We Labored On
I planted my beets, carrots, corn, and a few iceberg lettuce this week. Not so much however we don’t have all of the beds made but. I seen yesterday that the beets have already germinated! I’ve been engaged on weeding too. It’s already a unending job.
We had fairly a little bit of smoke right here this week from the fries in Canada so it was exhausting to be outdoors a lot, particularly for these of us with allergy symptoms. We did what we might. Subsequent week will likely be a giant outdoors week!
Inside Initiatives We Labored On
I really did work on the home for a big portion of the week. I’m cleansing out as a lot as I can earlier than we now have a rummage sale. We had a rummage sale final yr and so now I’m taking a look at all of the issues I saved and questioning why…. hopefully we will make slightly further from the sale and as a bonus, get a ton of stuff cleaned out that we don’t actually need! I most likely packed up over 20 packing containers of stuff for the sale this week…and contemplating I didn’t really feel like we had a ton to start with, that was so much!
Weblog Posts I Wrote
I’m making an effort to be a bit extra seasonal with my weblog posts; right here’s what’s new and up to date this week!
Wanting Forward to Subsequent Week
Subsequent week will likely be one other big work week for us. I’ve a big purpose of getting the brand new backyard completed which implies all of the fencing, beds, and planting.
