What Did I Do/Buy This Weekend? (December 9-10, 2017)

Hello, everybody! Sorry about the late update! Wasn’t feeling in the mood to write on Sunday, so today’s weekend update is a bit late! But come see what I did and bought this weekend! πŸ™‚

On Saturday, I made cookies! They were LOCSILD’s (LOC Sister-in-law D’s) sugar cookie recipe and they came out perfect! I baked the cookies on Saturday and decorated them on Sunday! Everything came out beautiful and yummy tasting! πŸ™‚

Before Frosting:

I was taste testing the cookies, so that is why one cookie is half eaten. πŸ˜›

After frosting:

I… didn’t get any pastry bags because I thought I would save some green and make my own out of a plastic baggy instead. Turn out I should have gotten them, haha. Oh well, neat looking or not, these cookies were still soft and delicious! πŸ˜€ This was a half a recipe, btw. πŸ˜‰

I also stopped at the SpendypantsΒ Thrift Store, or The Cancer Society, and bought a cute wired star ornament and a bea-ti-ful cashmere scarf for only $7.00! However, when I got home, I discovered the scarf had a hole in it, so I stitched it up using thread and it looks good! The hole however, was on the side of the scarf that showed by your face when you had it on, so you can see my threadwork on it kind of. Oh well. I like the scarf and if I start to hate it, I can always donate it back. πŸ™‚

Here is my new scarf!

Pretty, huh? πŸ™‚

I also went to Dollar Tree and picked up some Operation Christmas Child supplies for next year! Never to early to start packing those boxes!

After this, I went home and relaxed all evening. πŸ™‚

Money Spent on Saturday

  • Star Ornament – $3.00
  • Cashmere Scarf – $7.00
  • OCC Supplies – $6.44

Total Amount Spent: $16.44

On Sunday, like I said, I frosted the cookies and then picked up a few things at the Frugalpants Grocery Store, or Winco! Maaaaaan, was it ever busy in there this time of year! Managed to get mostly everything though!

After the Frugalpants Grocery Store, LOCMom was craving Chinese food, so she bought some Chinese food for us and we ate it at home! I know I am on a diet, but I do not regret this Chinese food! πŸ˜€

How could you say no to such goodness? :C

Btw, it was delicious. πŸ˜‰

After this meal, I put the rest of my groceries away and just relaxed for the night. πŸ™‚

Money Spent on Sunday

  • Broccoli – $0.72
  • Sweet Bell Pepper – $0.98
  • Romain Lettuce Package – $2.48
  • Grape Tomatoes – $1.98
  • Mushrooms – $0.77
  • Bananas – $0.68
  • Blueberries – $3.98
  • Avocados – $2.34
  • Glade Air Freshener – $0.97
  • Sweet Potato – $1.38
  • Eggs (18-carton) – $3.86
  • Kidney Bean Cans – $2.64 (for 2 cans)

Total Amount Spent:Β $26.13

Now, I must confess that I like to get out of the Frugalpants Grocery Store spending under 30 bucks each time and if any item is over $3.00, I silently cringe inside. > _>

I’m not sure if I can eat all of this food because I’m currently dealing with issues with my health which make me feel very meh about doing things like cooking or sticking to my diet, but darn it, I’m tired of wasting food! Especially the mushrooms I buy! I swear, those little suckers are going to nickel and dime me to death if I keep on not cooking them every time I buy them…

How was your weekend?Β

  1. Eggs just went from .38 a dozen to $1.69 a dozen here! I see they’re even higher for you. I guess they’re still a good deal for protein but talk about sticker shock!

    I bought 100 pastry bags with a coupon at AC Moore. I think they were only $5 and they last forever!πŸ˜‰ I use them for decorating plus stuff like filling deviled eggs, stuffed shells, manicotti, etc. And no clean-up! 😁😁 Well worth the spend!

    Your cookies look yummy!πŸ₯πŸŽ„πŸ₯πŸŽ„πŸ₯

    1. So I wasn’t the only one noticed?! O _O It’s crazy!

      Aw man, maybe I should’ve bought them! They’re very versatile it seems. πŸ™‚ Will be sure to get them next time for frosting cookies! And speaking of cookies, the cookies were very yummy! I can’t make them often because I will just eat them all, haha. ^ _^;

  2. Cute cookies! I made peanut butter ones with chocolate chunks. Yum.

    Do you have a freezer? If so, you can cook your mushrooms and then freeze them for later. I usually slice them and fry them in a little oil. Once they are cool, I just put them in a container and pop them in the freezer. Then I just defrost them and use them later. Works great for me!

    1. Never thought about freezing them! I should do that next time! Thank you for the idea! ^ _^ Didn’t know you could freeze them until now. πŸ™‚ But once again, those mushrooms are long gone. After my health issues are over, I have to get back in the habit of cooking them. Dx
