Living Simply with a Handful and Quietness

Frugalness, Simple Living and thoughts about Christ.

Week in review….. September 27, 2008

Filed under: Uncategorized — handfulofquietness @ 9:27 pm

First off, I have hung out 6 loads out of 8 this week!!! GO ME! That’s a savings of almost $6 with the electric usage our poor dryer demands. I can’t hang out Ryan’s things, and I washed all of Ethans clothes this week, so both those loads did go through the dryer.

We ate out a little this week – all cash, of course. Ryan and I ate at Burger King on Tuesday, $4.32 off the $1 menu for us. Then we did order a pizza from Papa John’s last night – $8.43 total.  We’re eating at home for the rest of the week – I count Sundays in this week. 🙂


As for shopping, here’s my totals:

Shelf Price: $522.89 plus tax

Total OOP: $135.38!

Savings: $387.51 or 74.1%!


I ended up with:

2 8pks of Viva towels

8 Glade Warmer kits (again, gifts!)

Not bad!! 😀 I simply ADORE this frugality way of life! I bought more this week than I usually do – but it was simply stockpiling at it’s best! 😀 

As for other spending, I did buy a pair of khaki pants for Ryan at $.49, and a pair of Ecco children’s shoes for resale at $1.91 – they retail at $72.95 and will be resold to pad the stockpile fund! 😀
