Welcome I am so glad you are joining me for a No Spend-Clean-Purge October.
We are going to clean things up, organize and save a ton of money for the upcoming Holiday. I can't wait to see what all you did this past week. Show me how you used up what you had, purged, sold, donated and cleaned. So link up below, I need all your tips and tricks.
My first no spend, clean, purge, use project was to check out the fridge, freezer and pantry to make sure I didn't have anything that needed to be used right away. The first thing I saw was some mushrooms that I needed to use up. Next was 1/2 lb of bow tie pasta left over from another dish I made and 1/2 lb of hamberger that I needed to cook. Great, this will make my famous "How To Feed A Crowd For $5" casserole even better than usual.
I cooked a lb of elbow macaroni with the bow tie pasta, this looks good.
Cover generously with shredded cheese.
Cover and put one in the fridge to cook later for dinner and one in the freezer to have for another time.
So what did I do, I saved some mushrooms, 1/2 lb hamburger, 1/2 lb bow tie pasta and saved myself from cooking for a future dinner. Plus this purged the fridge, freezer and pantry of things that I needed to use up NOW.
2. Cleaned and purged the table linens and placemats in the buffet. Donated a huge bag of linens to goodwill.
3. Cleaned out and organized my hubby's drawers. I won't bore you with tee shirts and shorts, but the socks look better.
5. Spent 0$ at the grocery store. I used up all the fresh veggies, milk and breads we had on hand, so nothing spoiled, and cooked from the freezer and pantry.
Savings $100 -( this is our average weekly grocery bill.)
Ok, your turn, show me what you got.
