Not many use it ups since the last time I posted.

I have however used up two small skeins of yarn. Hopefully more gone by the end of the week.

I am in this month. So far I used up the rest of a jar of mayo, a pie crust, the remainder of a bag of grated cheese and 4 eggs making DH favorite quiche. It is enough for 3 meals. On the same day I used a pie crust (pie crusts are now used up), half a bag of coconut and the last 2 eggs from a carton to make a coconut pie. Also, finished a can of cranberry sauce that really needed finishing. Last week I used the last jar of mushrooms (need more) and a can of spaghetti sauce (still have one). Oh, I forgot, cooked a package of bacon and used half in the above quiche.

Last weekend I brought 4 packages of cookies I had at the house (bought on sale within the last several months) for a cookie tree at my MIL's 90th birthday party. Down to only 1 package of store bought cookies - but, I think we will survive. Also, brought an open package of paper plates for back-up for dessert and they were used. Progress, progress - thanks for the inspiration.

Oops, forgot I used the last of the onions in the quiche. Now I am out of onions. Unfortunately, I lost 1 of the 6 onions in the package to rot.

Used up all the leftovers this week.

Tonights soup is in a jar as youngest DS raved about it and asked if he could take some home. So I am counting that as used up as well.

Used up the salad fixings.

Used up hotel sized bottles of shampoo and conditioner. Using some travel sized bottles now.

Used up another ball of yarn on the prayer shawl I am making.

Used up a couple of jar candles.
