It so happens I ended up loving the washer. There is no wringer in the middle and my comforter fits nicely in the tub. A bonus is it sings to me when the load is complete. It plays an entire tune to let me know the job is done. I laughed out loud, but found the tune was catchy and happy sounding.
It was installed on Saturday. I washed the comforter and a load of whites as well as darks since then.
Tuesday the carpet man came and cleaned the bedroom wall to wall carpet and the living room area rug. I was amazed that the spot on the living room rug that Marley favored was totally removed.
Before the carpet man came I removed everything in the closet that resides on the floor and vacuumed the rugs in both rooms.
The hardwood floors were swiffered and all of the interior doors were cleaned.
The entire downstairs was dusted. I like this idea that I saw on a video - to dust every room at one time.
A Shark vacuum was on sale plus I had a 20% coupon for a light model. (Not heavy to carry around.) It pulls apart to a small unit so I can easily vacuum the steps. I'll keep this upstairs because the regular size one is too heavy to cart up the stairs.
I went through ibotta before I went to Wal Mart grocery store and added 5.75 to my ibotta total. The total is now at 42.00. I only purchase what I normally use, passing by all the other offers. I bought sliced cheese, butter, Glad cling wrap, among other items that have slipped memory. I received two rebates on the butter because one was for California butter and one was for a name brand. The name brand was made in California so they gave me both rebates on the same item.
Strawberries were picked and consumed this week. Every one of them. The total was half a quart!
Since the blackberry bushes are growing wildly, I trimmed the large branches that have no fruit or flowers on them.
Went to the bank to pay off the washer and found I had enough points on my credit card to purchase three more 25.00 gift cards. These along with ibotta funds, change, and 100.00 a month will go towards gifts for birthdays and holidays.
After the bank visit I stopped in Marshall's and found a pair of house slippers and a pad of paper to jot down accomplishments to write on the blog.
|I wear a pair of these to bed at night|
to protect my feet when they're
rubbed with lotion. (coconut oil)
|This pad has spots for each day of|
the week - Monday to Friday -
then one spot for the weekend.
Penney's sent a 10.00 off 10.00 coupon in the mail so I bought my son's birthday gifts with the coupon, combining sales and the coupon providing a savings of 49.00. Out of pocket expense was 6.23 with tax in that total.
I made a bacon, lettuce, and tomato sandwich using the lettuce that's growing in the garden pot.
|I never thought planting that lettuce from the |
refrigerator would amount to anything. I'm
going to make another one today!
What are your accomplishments for the week? I'd love to hear from you. I sometimes read a blog not so much for the bloggers accomplishments, but for the sixty plus replies from readers. It's a great learning experience for me.
