I have been on the look out for a new pair of work shoes for a while.
I purchased these (believe it or not) at Grocery Outlet. Yes, at a grocery store. As the name implies GO is an outlet store for an odd assortment of clearance merchandise, mostly groceries. The shoes were $10 and I’ve gotten my money’s worth out of them.
I’ve worn most of the tread off the soles and they no longer offer the support I need as I stand on my feet for 8 hours at a time.
In late January I stopped to check out what Goodwill had to offer and I found these New Balance Hiking/sports shoes that retail for $80. They’re in perfect condition. They have been worn, (I can tell by the tiny pebbles lodged in the tread) but not very much. Goodwill price $7.99. SCORE!!
I also picked up a new feeder for my feathered friends. It cost $3.99. Similar ones go for around $35.00. Double score !!
Have you found any incredible deals at the thrift stores lately? Tell me about it in the comments. I love to hear your stories.
I don’t understand the game of football at all.
I am in the minority around here.
Seattle has gone Super Mad.
We’ve been making lots of Superbowl related goodies lately.
Not everyone is cheering on the Hawks.
Much to my disappointment the 99cents/pound Red Delicious Apples I purchased were anything but delicious. Actually some were very tasty and some were mealy. I never knew what I would get. I ate the crisp ones fresh.
I diced the apple into small piece, added them to OF oats and water, then microwaved it for 3 minutes.
I added sugar and cinnamon and was ready for breakfast.
After a oatmeal 3 mornings in a row I was ready for some variety.
I mixed chopped apples into pancake batter.
The Apple pancakes were delicoius.
I was given the remains of a 25# bag of juicing carrots. The carrots had been forgotten in the basement fridge and were headed for the compost.
Hating food waste the way I do, I offered to try to rescue anything that was still usable.
Lili at Creative Saav had a post about Curried Carrot Soup so I thought I’d give it a try.
How was your food waste this week? Have you rescued anything lately?
