Hello everybody! Sorry about being a day late with the weekend update! I was really cold yesterday and I have a handle on it now typing in gloves! Frankly, it slows down my typing quite a bit, but the gloves keep my hands warm! 🙂
On Saturday, it was cheat meal day for me, so with LOCMom’s help, I made green bean casserole from scratch! No soup cans here!
This is when it came out of the oven! Check it out plated!
That, my friends, has bacon in it! BACON! I put more bacon than the recipe called for because bacon is good and it turned out delicious! Way better than the canned version for sure! 😀 I am not ashamed to say I ate most of it on Saturday since I wanted it out of the house by Sunday. 🙂 Dieting and all. 😉
Also on Sunday, I went to Dollar Tree and found the FUNNIEST playing cards ever! Check em’ out!
Aren’t they the most hilarious and naughty deck of playing cards you have ever seen? 😛 I spotted them at the checkout counter and for a buck, I had to have them for the lulz! By the way, The Pleasure Pit is an actual casino in Las Vegas, Nevada which makes it all the more funnier! LOCBrotherH looked it up and let’s just say that some of the ladies in that casino were dressed like hookers, haha. I think I am going to rehome these cards though because I don’t need anymore playing cards anyway. 🙂
Money Spent on Saturday
Deck of Cards – $1.00
Total Amount Spent: $1.00
On Sunday, LOCMom went shopping by Goodwill which made it an excuse to go in there and I found two things!
First thing I came across while looking at the knives was a watermelon knife!
Now, since I bought the knife at Goodwill, I’m not sure if it was a dud knife or not, bit for $3.19, I might as well try it out and see if it will work! Now all I need is a melon. 🙂
And the next thing I bought was a new shirt!
The brand was ‘G.H. Bass & Co.’ and from looking up the shirt online, it looks like this particular clothing company does not sell their women’s clothing at Macy’s anymore, only men’s clothing. But I do remember that this brand was pretty pricey and for $4.99, this shirt was a steal! However, the men’s shirts in this brand are going for $20 and up at Macy’s, so not a bad deal if I do say so myself!
That is another secret of thrifting! If you are thrifting clothes you want to wear, know thy brands! 🙂 You don’t want to end up paying for a Wal-Mart shirt that was used like I did, do you? :C Won’t make that mistake again even though I did love my gently used Wal-Mart shirt at the time of purchase and still do. 🙂
Money Spent on Sunday
Watermelon Knife – $3.19
Shirt – $4.99
Total Amount Spent: $8.18
So not a bad weekend! I really did enjoy my green bean casserole though! Soooooo tasty!
And bad news about the birds at the Frugalpants Grocery Store everyone. 😦 When I was feeding the birds, a security guard came up to me and told me the store didn’t want anyone feeding the birds anymore because they found a dead pigeon in their trash can and they blamed the predators for being attracted to the pigeons that hang out at the store. 😦 So in other words, the crows were coming in and eating the pigeons. 😦 However, the security guard said that if it was his store, he would let me keep feeding the birds though, which I thought was cool. 🙂 He was friendly to me about the whole thing though, so I wasn’t too freaked out. 🙂 But man, was I ever bummed! I guess that is money saved? Oh well. 😦
And it’s Thanksgiving this week, so I’m not sure if I will have time to put a weekly blog post up because of the holidays. I will definitely be putting a weekend update combining it with a Thanksgiving update though! 🙂
If I don’t post anything by then, I hope all of you have a wonderful Thanksgiving holiday and if you do shop on Black Friday, shop smart and don’t overspend! 🙂
How was your weekend?
