The title is much better than BOGO. Needed butter, so we bought some yesterday. Tonight found a box of 15. Organic sweet cream butter no less, woo hoo!
Captured from the dumpster over 50 packages of cheese, some were pre-sliced, some were blocks of cheese. Monterey Jack, Colby, Sharp Cheddar, you name it. All these cheeses are in their packages intact. Good for omelettes or cheese quesadillas.
Two packages of frozen hash browns.
5 containers of chocolate milk.
Sliced deli turkey breast.
Cookie dough to bake chocolate chip cookies with.
Onions, potatoes, broccoli, carrots (I make carrot juice daily). Ironically I had said I needed to find a carrot farmer as it takes 1 pound of carrots to make juice for my husband and I. Found tons and tons of carrots. Plus a bag of sweet oranges.
This weekend we are having guests over. They are having a getaway from their 5 children. They need the break. They are staying the night with us. We’re going to eat dived food (they know where it comes from), watch some good old fashioned movies, maybe play some scrabble and then later have a fire outside and see the stars.
I love being a free agent. No mortgage, no debt, just free to live the life I want. I’m no spring chicken. But I’m not ready to take a dirt nap just yet. So now I live my life on my terms. Go to bed when I want, get up when I want, do what I want. The sky is the limit. But it took me MANY years to get here.
I’m certainly NOT wealthy by any means. We live very frugally. We live simply. And for me that’s OK.
So when our friends leave, they’ll be going home with lots of stuff. Clothes for the kids, food, toiletries, prepper supplies, etc. They need it, we have it, we got it free and we share it.
What’s not to like about that?
