Last Week's Frugal Accomplishments - The Prudent Homemaker Blog: I sewed 5 toddler bibs that I cut out from an old fitted sheet of my mom's.
I turned a pair of my son's pants with a torn knee into shorts.
I turned a pair of my daughter's jeans with a torn knee into shorts, and I turned a pair of boot cut jeans into shorts. Since I buy the girls' jeans for $0.50 to $2 a pair at garage sales, I'm not out a lot to start when they quickly wear out the knees in their jeans. Shorts are more practical here for most of the year, so they wear the shorts until the fabric wears out.
I opened the windows in the early mornings when it was below 79 to air out the house and keep from running the�air conditioner for a couple of hours each morning. We need air conditioning here during the day through October, so it was nice to be able to open the windows just for a short while before we reached triple digits this past week.
Some of my agapanthus plants died over the summer (they burnt in the heat, a common problem here for many plants). The local nursery was having a sale on them, so I purchased some new ones while they were on sale.�
My husband gave our eldest son a haircut.
