Lots of saving and doing today


Grand daughter Elizabeth spent the day with me again today. 
While she ate breakfast,  I paid 2 bills online - I love our bank's free internet bill pay system!  


Then we went to the bank for some cash.
We made one stop at a grocer and got some frozen veggies that were on sale.
I got breaded okra and whole green beans.
Peas, corn and mixes veggies are often on sale but not the fancier ones like these were today
 for just $1 and $1.29 a bag so I stocked up on them.  


I cut up 2 cantaloupe and 1 huge pineapple
all are delicious!




Staples mailed me some coupons yesterday and I already had $40 in  Staples Rewards from ink cartridge recycling so this seemed like a good time to do a Staples order.  They offered free shipping on orders over $45,
$10 off $75 orders and a free bag of Starbucks coffee with a $75 order.
Staples allows stacking of Rewards and different coupons.
So with some careful ordering,  I spent just enough to us both coupons and my Rewards.
I was also careful to buy only things we need and use.

Ruffled Key Chain
 Daughter Nina requested I sew a key chain bracelet for her with the tutorial on a really cute blog Sugar Bee  that is new to me but Nina has been reading.  My stash had plenty of fabric for Nina to choose from but I did not have the same key holder metal part as SugarBee used.  I found some spring snaps in the leather department for Hobby Lobby.  
But I have looked online at other tutorials for similar key wrist bands and one of them used some handbag clips from Joanns,  I think I would like them better and I am going to look for them when I have time.  
being a hand model is harder than it looks!  

It will hold your keys on your wrist so your hands are still free
and hopefully wearing keys might prevent losing them.  

I hope you all had a nice day too!
