In this post I was talking about getting rid of as many toxins in our home as possible. The all-purpose citrus cleaner is great and I use it for everything and the deodorant sprays I made are a success and making these myself at home would have saved me about $10.00.

The 'Living for Less' was a huge success. Everything in this post was for free thanks to the wonderful 'Freecycle Group'. Savings here were in excess of $150 if I was to go out and actually buy the dog bed, cover and bromeliads new.

Freezer meals save me so much time when I'm working. Last week I had a stressful day at work and walked in the door tired and weary only to smell the dinner wafting through the house. It bought a smile to my face to know that I had put a freezer meal in the slow cooker and dinner was ready.

The budget 'Spending Tracker' is working really well. I'm so glad I started this as it makes me thing before I buy because I know that I have to be accountable for that money and it is written on the spreadsheet in plain sight. I have decided to highlight across each row that I have a 'No Spend' day, it is great to see those days adding up across the sheet.
My morning at the recycling centre was great and I must really go there more often. Not only did I save things from going into landfill somewhere to lie there forever, I saved us a heap of money as well,
probably about $90 in all.
Wow so technically over this week I have saved a total of about $250. Now if I actually had that to put on my mortgage those kinds of savings could really make a difference!
