1. I did some kitchen prep work to save us from buying prepackaged food
2. Hung the laundry on the clothesline.
3. Used my new rain barrel to water all my potted plants
4. Lined my remaining living room curtain panels with some room darkening fabric I had found at a yard sale for $3. Our big picture window gets the hot after noon sun so this will help alot!
5. Sold a bicycle that no one uses anymore and added the money to my car fund
