Phew! This week is flying by! I feel as if I am running just to keep up with myself. It is easy to feel that I haven’t achieved anything sometimes, although I know that I have.
I have a ton of laundry to sort – I have managed to keep on top of the washing and drying but not the sorting and ironing. Thankfully the weather has been mild and I can dry it outside.
I have just about managed to get in the garden a couple of evenings after work to pick the veg. It gets dark so early now and I have been trying to locate runner beans in the dusk a few times. I froze some beans one evening, but there are huge bags of tomatoes and courgettes that need processing in some way and freezing. I hope to do that this weekend, although I am teaching an extra yoga class on Saturday. I’m not saying no to any way to earn a few extra pounds at the moment!
So what have my frugal achievements been this week?
I bought a beautiful velvet skirt for £4 in a charity shop
I haven’t done a proper food shop for a fortnight – been living out of the larder and from the garden
All laundry has been line dried
I have picked and frozen some runner beans
I have picked lots of courgettes and tomatoes too for processing at the weekend
I worked overtime on Sunday for double time
I am covering an extra yoga class on Saturday
If only I could afford to work part time. I could do everything I need to with an extra day a week at home and could be lots more frugal. Mind you if I went part time I would need to be!
