Is a French press the same as a cafetiere?

According to Wikipedia - Yes.  And Wikipedia is never wrong.

I just did one of those product surveys, and for ONCE, I got selected, so I'll get free body wash and $10 for giving them feedback on it.  Also had a free peppermint mocha from Starbucks for my birthday drink (came out to like $5.73, crazy!) for breakfast, then brought my lunch to avoid going along with the crew to lunch (and got some work done in the meantime).  Lunch had quite a bit of my garden produce in it, so double win there.

Trimmed my horses' feet myself.  This saves me $100 ever six weeks.

Had to go for fasting (not even coffee) blood work this morning, and on the way home I was Jonesin' bad for a Tim Horton's coffee and bagel. There is something about Tim Horton's coffee that I just love. Anyway, came home and made my own coffee and bagel, and saved the money. I'm pretty sure everyone IRL would scoff at saving $5.

Assured another neighbor that I would love to have the stuff they clean out of the fridge when they are going away for the winter.  People are a little shy about showing up with an old onion and half a stick of butter so you have to give a lot of positive reinforcement.

We also avoided bagels this morning.  My weakness is Noah's.  Savings ~ $8

I'm going to a friend's house for lunch and tea.  I picked up some macarons and chocolate shortbread cookies from Trader Joe's (about $9) to bring along.  This is a lot less than I usually spend when I hang out with this group.  I'm excited about having a low key afternoon in rather than expensive drinks and dinners out.

Slept in late, so I didn't need to heat the house as long. Plus, sleep is awesome. Sprouted chick peas, got them cooking right now (enough for at least 4 meals). Lahey-style bread dough rising, to bake later. Eating up all the food in the fridge and cupboards instead of going shopping. Listening to pretty good Indian music from the library ("Essential Asian Flavas").

Frugal foodie shopping trip with my mom:

* Health food store: Bulk spices. $7 for what would have cost at least $15 at the grocery store.

* Restaurant supply: A new tri-ply skillet (needed and budgeted) which appears to be BIFL. $40, instead of the much pricier All-Clad I was ogling.

Split and stacked about two cords of firewood today.  Also saved flower seeds from dead annuals I was ripping out, so won't need to buy seeds or plants in the spring.  Pulled up and saved more gladiola bulbs too, since the don't survive the winters here, and I love having like 100 of them each year.

Haircuts for everybody!

From easiest to hardest:

1. Daughter: Long layers (ponytail)
2. Youngest son: Buzz cut (3 all over).
3. Me: Short layers + bangs (ponytail)
4. Husband: Clipper cut (5 > 3, ear taper)
5. Oldest son: Medium-length scissor cut, longer on top.

At least $100 saved, and we do it monthly.

This weekend I spraypainted a wooden table (£8 for the paint) and rearranged some furniture and changed cushion covers I haven't used in a while, my living room looks totally different, ready for Christmas :)

I also batch cooked some chicken thighs and portioned them up for Spanish chicken casserole [2 dinners] and pesto chicken with veggies and courgette "spaghetti" [2 lunches].

Went to the library, got 8 new books to read this month.

Made a big batch of tasty lunches for my work week.

When a tray of fudge I'd agreed to make for a work morning tea didn't set, instead of rushing out and buying something to bring I let the morning tea organiser know and her response was "don't worry, we'll have heaps of food!"

Resisting the urge to buy diet cokes ($1 each) or chocolate bars ($2) because of long term health costs as well as immediate loss of money.

Visiting the library on my way home for free entertainment I can keep for three weeks (or even longer if no one else has reserved it!).

Eating leftovers for dinner tonight.

Same here.  DH and DS1 have the same type of hair, so I can do the same cut on both.  DS2 has finer hair, but graduated clipper guards (2 on bottom, work up to a 4 on top) and he is done.  They get cut every 3-4 weeks so we also save at least $30/month, not counting the time to set up the appointment and drive there.

You get bonus kudos for cutting your own and your daughter's.  Any mistake I make on the boys grows out in 1-2 weeks.

I was amazed to find out how easy it is to do this layered cut. Easy peasy.

Yesterday I found some needed items at the Goodwill: twin comforter for my son (just moved to New England and are still getting warm gear), good salad spinner, heavy mixing bowl.

Took advantage of some casino promotions (I live in NJ) and ended up with about $25 I didn't have before.

Used a drying rack to dry clothes (saved $3.50). Not enough racks, so I'd probably need to buy 2 more (3 total) to handle the amount of laundry we have in an economical way.

Bought stuff at Target using the Red card (which I had to sign up for) and saved 5% (about $20 since the shopping trip was large).

I dry the same way.  I found an *awesome* drying rack at the local indoor flea market for about $20 that holds over a week's worth of laundry for me.  It's made of plasticoated metal, folds flat, and is really sturdy when set up.  It looks a lot like this one: http://www.hayneedle.com/product/moerman88346collapsiblemetaldryingrack.cfm

It was at the quintessential Asian Import and Dollar Stuff booth but way in the back.  I'm pretty sure this is typically a "locals in the know" item as it wasn't out in prominent display like other items.  Might be worth the hunt if you are a buy-it-once-forever kind of shopper like me.

We're going to Peru in the spring, so I figured I'd start early on gear shopping to take advantage of black Friday sales and all that.  But before I did that, I checked Craigslist and scored a brand new with tags, super fancy $300+ Gregory backpack that will hold all my gear for the 2 week trip for $75.  I fully expected to spend twice that much for a decent pack on sale.

Haven't ordered food in, even though we've been sorely tempted, since my foot surgery Friday. Today is Tuesday. I'm surprised and pleased that my family has risen to the occasion and gotten meals on the table in spite of the adversity!

Eating my way through my pantry, this month, in anticipation of doing more spendy shopping for Thanksgiving dinner.

I realized I've been neglecting my stockpile of ready-to-eat soups.  Instead of throwing out two cans that were almost a year past their "use by" date, I risked it and brought a can to work for lunch.  Happy to say that I didn't notice much of a difference.  :-)

Started bringing lunch to work.

If too busy to prep lunch, I buy side dishes from corporate cafeteria -- sweet potato fries and grilled veggies for $1.75. They let me put chili sauce on my fries for free and some cheese and onion from salad bard --- voila chili fries! Save at least $5 per day on lunch.

Had leftovers for lunch.  Super great catered food from last week's "America" concert.  I've still got enough in the freezer for a week's worth of free meals.

Baked my own challah bread as the bakery didn't have any. Too delicious though. It's all gone in one day! But I think I will make it a weekly practice.
If I get good at it, I can make an extra loaf and donate it.

Completely failed to phone a washing repair man today, after my machine broke down last night.

BUT, the good thing about forgetting, is that while I was bailing out all the water from it this evening I remembered it had come with a 3month warranty, despite being second hand, when we bought it 2 1/2 months ago!  Yay for something finally breaking down just inside the warranty period, instead of just outside it!

(and no, the warranty didn't cost extra at the time)

Cooked the last of my enormous 19 cent/lb. cabbage.  It's hard for two people to use up a 15 lb. cabbage but I did it.  Well, except for a dab of coleslaw that is in the fridge that we will eat tomorrow.

We did this on a house in eastern WA using the "heat shrink" plastic.  Saved a bunch of money in heating that winter.  Hope yours works as well!

We do this every year because we have stupid leaky crank out windows.  We've lived here for 15 years and there is a very noticeable difference when I don't do this both in comfort levels AND the gas bill (we save an average of $600 per year based on what the bill jumps to when I don't get it done).  I also save the plastic from the larger windows to reuse on the smaller ones until it gets too small to reuse...save about half the cost of plastic that way.  We find there is wayyyy more tape per package than we need.  I do believe that 2015 will finally be the year we replace these stupid things.

We've installed a kitty door in one of our sliding glass doors, and it's single pane and has caused some air leaks. So last night we sealed up the leaks and installed bubble wrap over the single pane.

Dry air is doing a number on my skin and hair but I was resisting buying a humidifier (because of cost but also bringing more plastic clutter into the house). Did a search for alternatives and saw a great idea of hanging damp towels in the bedroom to dry. The towels need to dry anyway and I get them out of the bathroom which doesn't need moisture and into the bedroom which does.

Yep.  I do my laundry during off peak hours to save on my electric bill and then divide the clothing amongst two drying racks in the house.  Also, I hang towels to dry on some old toddler pants hangers in various dry areas of the house.  When combined with having the house set lower than "room temperature," dry air is not such a problem.

So I woke up this morning on a sunny Saturday, made coffee and put some raisin-bran type cereal in a bowl and then realized I was out of milk.  Drat, I really wanted some cereal!   

Today is my grocery shopping day so I am almost out of everything.  I did a quick inventory of the pantry and fridge--eggs, but no bread for toast, drat again!  Nothing but veggies and meat in the freezer.  I glared at my leftover Swedish meatballs and mashed potatoes in the fridge as that is where the rest of the milk went last night. 

But then I see that I have everything for pumpkin bread.  The rest of the house is asleep, so I turn on some classical music and get to work.  It took me a while as I haven't used the from scratch recipe for quite some time.  But I just took the loaf out and it looks/smells wonderful.

I feel like a total badass!

I just made 3 cups of Sambal Oelek (chile paste) out of leftover homegrown chiles.  It's about 3x as hot as the store bought stuff, was essentially free (just some garlic, sugar, white vinegar added) but will replace $15 worth of the store bought stuff, and reduce packaging waste too.

I had a bunch of Thai and 5-Color chiles and some random jalapenos and habaneros - maybe a quart with the stems cut off?  Put in a pot with ~cup of white vinegar, brought to a boil, added maybe 1T salt, a dash of fish sauce, 6 large cloves of garlic, and 3-4 T sugar, cooked for a few minutes, then into the blender until it was the consistency I wanted.  Oh, I threw in a couple pieces of pickled ginger I had laying around, too.  If there were tamer palates in our house, I probably would have gone back in with about 50% bell pepper to take the heat down because this stuff is INTENSE, but I always eat like 3 T of Sambal Oelek when we have stirfry.

-got son floor mats for his new-to-him 1997 Honda Civic on clearance for $6 a piece.
-got another son a socket set for 50% off -- he's always using ours to tinker with his car -- and an iron on sale (he's "thinking" about moving out soon - 20 years old)

I love getting practical gifts! Feel like I really scored today!

Also, picked up a sturdy clothes drying rack (to add to my Ikea wall drying racks) that was on sale.

So yes, I actually had to spend money to save money.

I got two free drying racks using some reward points I got at work and so dried a load of laundry instead of using the dryer.

Meal prepped food for the week to deter eating out.

Used a 50% off coupon I found on the back of my Kroger receipt to buy a month's worth of e-juice for vaping.

Went to the library, got a library card, and checked out 5 books.

Went to Costco to check out what it was all about and price checked a lot of staples. I'm going to wait to check if my work offers a discount for the membership but the savings on toilet paper and chicken alone will pay for the $55 fee. They didn't post the price for gas but the lines to fuel up were so long, they reminded me of rental car places, so I'm guessing the price is really good.

I consider this a very productive lazy Saturday.
