50c Plants are Thriving.


I rescue markdown plants from the dead plant section at Bunnings & these brought a nice surprise to my garden. They do not always have their labels on so I just plant & see what becomes of them.


                                      Watermelons & rhubarb are coming along slowly.



Markdowns for the Week

Managed to find a few bargains but really trying not to spend too much money on the lead up to Christmas.


Op Shop Christmas Tree $4
With 3 packets of baubles and tinsel for 50c each makes for a cheap way to bring some Christmas cheer & colour into the house.


Hope you have found some good bargains this week, not only groceries but Christmas items as well.


Live Cheaper – Stockpiling Wood For Next Winter

Now the temperature is soaring we certainly do not need any wood fires to keep us warm but it is a chance to fill the depleted wood shed ready for next season.


Partner brings home from his building work any odds and ends that can be stored & each year you can buy a permit from our local council that allows you to go into the state park and collect firewood from any trees that have fallen over or laying on ground. They are usually huge & require chainsaws, trailers & a few strong men.


Strawberry Season in Full Swing

Have had much better strawberries growing this year, prolific amount of berries on each plant this season and all purchased at knock-down prices in the dead plant section after last season. Just planted them & they have all done well.



Markdowns From the Week

Have been mainly using up leftover salad and items from freezer so have not needed to purchase much produce this week. Should be the last week of purchasing tomatoes for awhile as most of my plants are ripening well now the hot weather has hit.



Now fridge/freezer is looking depleted I will need to have a good week hunting for marked down bargains, how did you go for bargains this week?

Ten Zinnia seedlings for 20c today.

Hopefully they will survive with a bit of love and fertiliser . Bunnings have a markdown section and I like trying to get plants to flower rather than them ending up in the Bunnings bin.20140928_115631


Bargain plants put a smile on my face.
