To A Year in Thrift Store Skirts. I stopped by my thrift store again today and got two “new” ones. It’s not that I have anything against buying new clothes! In fact, I almost never purchase a shirt at a thrift store. But it seems that virtually all of the skirts I’ve been buying and wearing are from my good ol’ neighborhood thrift. (Truth be told I am a little bit
cheap frugal, and I get a buzz from getting two skirts for $7.) Like I’ve said before, you’d be surprised at the good condition you’ll find because people don’t really wear their skirts.
Today’s skirt was purchased thrift a year or two ago. I’ll probably wear one of my “new” ones tomorrow.
Busy busy today. I almost forgot to take my picture! It was 4:30 and I had just served the kids dinner.
I did my grocery shopping this morning after I dropped the Franster off at school. And I had my little “cooking method” meal plan in my head and it worked!
So this is what I came up with at the store:
Monday- chicken, mashed potatoes, peas, biscuits
Tuesday- Pavo Chon (which is just crockpot pork with garlic, salt, oregano, and pimiento olives)
Friday- probably leftovers (although I have some frozen fish if I need it)
Sat- eat out
I realize that real meal-planners sit down BEFORE they get to the store, but this is me and I’m not a real meal-planner. But this is a GOOD FIRST STEP!
Edit to add: I just saw Carrie’s meal plan. She’s a true meal-planning rock-star and she put up recipe links and everything. AND I’d like to mention that she is 23 years old, which doesn’t mean much except that when I was 23 I had zero homemaking skills. She’s a really neat gal! This is what happens when girls are taught how to do stuff from a young age. (Ahem, Carrie, maybe you should do a blog post about how you learned your homemaking skills.)
Have a wonderful day!
