Frugal Friday File 2018, week 31...

1.  I was out of multi-purpose cleaner in the master bath.  I could have gone and made some, or retrieved some from another part of the house, but there was a container of a liquid hand soap that I don't really like sitting on the counter, so I poured some of it in the toilet bowl and brushed as usual.  Soap is soap, and the ones I don't like for one purpose  get used for another.  

2.  I scheduled 7 new days of work locally for next month.  

3.  The pantry needs reorganizing desperately.  Rotating some of the lingering stock out will  help neaten things up as well as be frugal.  Tonight we will be having salmon croquettes.  Maybe in the next few days there will be tuna casserole, tuna salad sandwiches, some kind of curry to use up the bottle of curry sauce (and fading vegetables in the fridge)...  

4.  Staying home shutting out the heat.  I don't glow.  I sweat...copious amounts of sweat.

5.  We have a water well.  That means that there's no water bill climbing when Carey waters the trees by non-stop slow drip to try to keep the stress of this dry heat from causing damage.

Frugal From the Kitchen This Week:

  1. how do you reorganize your pantry?? Even with a check list it's hard to keep on top of things.

    Have a good weekend.

    1. Hi Debbie, I just try to keep like items together. I have a lazy susan for canned fish/meats, another for condiments. Crackers have part of a shelf, but right now they are crowded in with dry milk and protein powder. I just need to neaten things up. The last time it had a major clean out was three years ago, and the post about it then can be found here:

  2. Next time, add some vinegar to that bottle of hand soap - you'll get double the cleaning power.

    1. Of course, I should have thought of that! I keep a bottle of vinegar under every sink in the house. :) Actually, the toilet wasn’t very dirty, so it was fine. I just like to run the brush around the bowl often, and a wet wipe on the seat top and bottom and on the rim.
