2. Cooking: Mostly, I've been trying to use up excess food/ingredients left over from the holidays. I made several green smoothies. I also salvaged carrots, celery, and other items that were beginning to go bad in the fridge.
3. Organization: I spent $30.00 on plastic storage bins for our storage room. It wasn't technically "frugal"; as in, I spent money on the boxes. However, being organized is frugal because it prevents waste. Having my tools and supplies better organized will mean that I buy less doubles and lose fewer items. I bought large, medium and small containers, and used them to sort out tools and supplies for various projects. For example, I put all of the paper craft items in one box, soap items in another, etc. In the past I've just kept these items in old cardboard boxes. While that system worked, it looked "junky" wasn't pest-proof. I'm not sure why I didn't buy matching boxes sooner. I love the way they look, plus they actually stack well. The boxes make things easier to move around.
That's all, folks! I look forward to reporting more frugal accomplishments next week.
