Quite a nice day after a cold start. We're working in the garden preparing the ground to plant potatoes. Then it will be time to feed the pigs, and make dinner. Tonight it's lamb chops with cous-cous and roast vegetables.

It is more than just saving on the Dawn. Every item I ordered was tax free. And they cost a lot less than what I would have paid at my supermarket along with better quality. At my supermarket, I usually buy the house brand on the paper products. I also bought the soap pods for laundry. And I bought a bigger container and better product than I usually buy and at a lesser price than I pay for my usual.

So for me, I think Jet.com is definitely a savings. I have four monthly bills and after that is done with, I am left with a little over $200.00 to last me for the month. Out of that $200. I have to pay cash for taxable items plus the sales tax. Everything I purchased was a taxable item.

I absolutely agree with you that jet.com has some fabulous deals, Addie! I'm just getting ready to place an order.

Been busy working in the yard AGAIN today. I got sidetracked though, and decided the sliding glass door to the patio needed washing...that led to more window washing...not my favorite job but needs to be done. Taking a little snack break for now.

I placed my order yesterday afternoon and when I got back from the doctor's. there was this huge box in the lobby with my name on it. I still have four more items that are coming separately. I put the box on my scooter and brought it upstairs. I couldn't get it through my door while it was on the scooter, so I walked it in. Good Grief! That box was heavy. It is three feet long and one foot high. And it packed to the very fullest.

Drinking coffee and checking the grocery flyers.

I don't really need much, my little freezer compartment is crammed to the brim with various odds and ends.

I think for the next two weeks I will focus on inventory reduction, just buy a few "go with" items and fresh produce.

It will be tough for me to pass up the weekly specials.

Take a deep breath and repeat after me! "Two elephants for a quarter is only a great deal, if you need two elephants!"

I'm working on decorating a set of floating shelves DH built and installed in our sitting/guest room.

A few years ago, I made these display frames from something I found on Pinterest for souvenir magnets from our trips. DH cut a steel sheet to fit the frames and I put the magnets on it. The steel has rusted over time, so today I trimmed construction paper to cover the it and cleaned up the magnets. Need a few more items for the top shelf.

I like to do upcycling i.e. recycling/adapting items for a new lease of life.

I found some rainbow coloured fabric and covered the arching branch of a rose bush and incorporated a tropical parrot that I also found (discarded!)
