Day 70 of YOUF/No Spend Year

January 10th, 2019 at 06:50 am

Day 4 of tacos for dinner, for me anyway. Our neighbor brought down some homemade soup, which she does occasionally. DH has eaten that the past two nights. We have enough tacos for one more night.

DH said if we keep stretching our food like this our freezer food will last for 3 years!

My daughter picked me up in my car (that she borrowed because hers is in the shop) and took me to quilting group that meets twice a month at a local church classroom where we all sit around and yak while sewing or in my case, embroidering. I didn't feel like dragging the sewing machine out today. Usually I pack the car early and then drive in at the right time, but with daughter picking me up, and coming before I was ready, I was scrambling to get my current embroidery project together.

DH picked me up with the good news that our older truck will be ready to be picked up tomorrow so I am driving into town and he will either get a ride to the mechanic or will walk. DD will pick me up in the afternoon and drive back to her car dealership where her car also will be ready to pickup.

Hurray! I can work on decluttering and take a load to the local animal rescue shop on Friday.

DH ran to Ace Hardware and picked up 2 bags of bird seed, which is in the budget. Our chickens like it to and expect a few handfuls when I let them out in the morning.

Now if I can just get a good night's sleep.......

    That would be amazing if your freezer stockpile could feed you for three years!

    My chickens really liked it when I would sprout sunflower seeds for them. It gave them something green to eat and only takes a couple days. You can get a big bag of black oil sunflower seeds from Lowe's. It will stretch your feed dollars. I usually had a three container rotation going, since that's how long it took to get them to the level the chickens liked them best at.

    Good job on stretching that food. A few years ago when I was working, I would cook a whole chicken and we would get quite a few meals from it. One of my coworkers asked me about it and I gave her the menu for that week, lots of casseroles and such and she informed me she couldn't stand to eat chicken two days in a row. I said, well I can't stand to spend money crazily. I know we have been eating less meat in the past few years, even having some meatless meals, and besides helping our budget, I think it has helped our health too.
