Weekly Wrap Up

Each week I will be posting a list of the frugal things I did for the week. If you want to see more ideas please visit Jennifer at Getting Ahead.

*Had hubby replace thermostat himself instead of the furnace repair man saving us $130.
*I didn't leave the house much this week so we haven't put gas in the van for 1 1/2 weeks and I am still at 3/4 of a tank!
*Washed all laundry in cold water.
*Kept heat at 67/day and 65/night.
*Made 6 loaves of homemade bread.
*Cooked every meal at home.
*Went to the library, mall play ground, and the pet store for free entertainment this week.

Please feel free to share any things you did this week to save money!


  1. Have you found a good recipe for homemade sandwich bread? I've yet to find a good one that isn't too dense or doesn't get too dry for sandwiches. Or maybe we just prefer the really fresh stuff for sandwiches.

  2. No, I have not found a sandwich bread recipe that I like. The ones I am making we have been eating just with butter or toasting it. The bread is very dense. I am with you and like very soft bread for sandwiches. I have a few more recipes to try so I will let you know if I find anything!

  3. This blog is such a great idea, Sara. This will definitely help people like me who are too lazy to go out and find these deals and ideas ourselves. You really are a supermom!
