I’ll just start catching up and say I’m sorry for not posting a single time in July
First- if you aren’t signed up with Esearch, please do! I don’t get a referral but it could be very worth your time.
I just finished a 4 month test using liquid laundry detergent (both detergents were very good but the second one was amazing and I suspect it was Tide in the new hygienic clean variety).
Esearch kept me supplied with detergent for 4 months and I did a short survey every 2 weeks or so. And then I got paid $250.00!
I don’t know how they pick participants and I never know when I’ll get a test, I just always check my email from them for offers and they don’t come very often.
This is the 2nd or 3rd detergent test I’ve done for them and the others paid but not quite this well.
This link is fixed now and goes to Esearch
Our new fence is finally complete! It’s a white vinyl privacy fence, that should last the rest of our lifetime.
It goes around our backyard- and we have a typical suburban home lot
I have been doing almost all of our grocery shopping online with Walmart Pickup since February 2020.
This week I decided to get my groceries at Aldi. First I stopped at the Dollar Tree that is next door to Aldi. I wanted to stock up on the shelf stable milk- in case your wondering, it tastes exactly like refrigerated milk but it is so nice to have in the pantry when you only need milk and don’t want to go to the store.
I bought 10 shelf stable milk, 2 animal crackers and 2 huge boxes of flavored Cheerios - I’m sure grandchildren will enjoy the cookies and cereal.
I scanned my receipt and submitted it to Fetch. You won’t get rich doing Fetch but you just take photos of your grocery receipts and submit them. It takes seconds and you should earn a gift certificate every 6 months or so
I was pleased to see the Cheerios were a bonus item.
That is my referral link if you should want to try Fetch
Then I went to Aldi and bought the things in my list
I thought Aldi’s prices seemed good!
I was curious how I would of done if I’d ordered the same things on Walmart Pickup so I went to their app and added everything to see the total -I didn’t place order, I just wanted to compare
Walmart was $15 higher
This is not an exact comparison as the 2 stores have different items but the Walmart list is what I would if spent on the same list.
All that meat was used for bulk cooking that I like to freeze for easy meals. I made a big batch of chili and a big batch of pasta sauce.
I cooked chicken into taco meat, plain cooked chicken cubes for meals like chicken noodle soup and shredded chicken for chicken salad, enchiladas, etc.
I’m quite happy our freezer is so stocked with easy meals.
I used crockpots and the stovetop to cook all that chicken. The chicken taco meat was seasoned with just salsa.
I cooked lots pintos for the chili and used lots of chopped onions in the chili and pasta sauce.
At Aldi, it’s been so long since I shopped in person and I didn’t have bags in my van. My husband got these wine boxes as as the Aldi worker was stocking shelves. They were perfect for groceries- very sturdy and even cushioned on the inside.
To close, I had written out what some people would call a pro-Covid vaccine rant.
I’ve deleted it and I’d like to say more as my family has been depending on all kinds of medical workers for 6 weeks and counting as my mother recovers from a complicated surgery.
I’ve always been in favor of ALL vaccines.
Why wait when a vaccine could save your life, make people around you safer and take stress off the medical system?
