Couple of big days ... so far we've used up:
The leftover stir fry
head of lettuce
half a fresh tomato
bottle of powered garlic
jar of pasta sauce
box of lasagna noodles
refill bottle of liquid soap ... put some water in to get the last bits out ... couple of hand washings, and used the rest to clean the bathroom sink.

Made two cassaroles with leftover meats. one with a rice base, the other with a pasta base. I have off this week (10 days in a row) so this will be easy solution and frugal for lunches for me.

I thought I had to buy another bird bath, but instead I used a old plant stand and an old bird bath dish. works great and not cost. I wish I would have thought of that earlier.

finding lots of stuff for the garage sale. I would be thrilled if I made enough to cover expenses for the garden. fingers crossed. cj
