So I just spent a ridiculous sum of money, since we are about halfway through our kitchen overhaul.
I figured it would be prudent to find a way to save a few shekels this week. That won't really make a dent in the thousands I have to pay, but it makes me feel better (a tiny bit) to say I saved money.
So here is what I did:
Found a place that had lots of produce priced between 90 agurot/kg and 1.90shekels/kg, and what we bought there (plus toilet paper at 63 agurot per roll and milk at 5 shekels/L) is the bulk of this week's grocery shopping, except that we do plan to start the Pesach shopping this week!
Found a place to buy goats' milk - organic even - for less than I've been paying, so I know where to get it from now on!
Found a place to buy specialty goats' milk cheeses for many, many shekels less than I've been seeing, so I'll be able to get some before Pesach!
Gave away a bunch of clothes to make us feel less crowded in our house.
Sold a bunch of nearly perfect condition clothes (for very little, but that's the way it is with second hand clothing).
Washed and set aside a few other things I'd like to sell.
Doesn't seem like much, but some days I just need to feel like "every drop counts"!
Did you save any money this week?
