I harvested the last of the Basil
and I dehydrated it with my new oven's dehydrate setting. I have a double oven with the top being only one fourth of the entire oven. In 20 minutes, it went from above to this
Not much, but better than wasting it.
I also harvested the oregano I had hanging to try and now have this
I cut and hung more oregano to dry
I took the seeds from the fennel I was drying. Not much
can you see the seeds in the bottom of the baggie?
And I cut down the rest of my fennel and hung it to dry for more seeds
I put more gardening items away (hoses and sprinklers) and I threw out a bunch of equipment that is broken or not working correctly.
We had several tree removal companies come out, and we are removing an large Elm that my grandfather planted way to close to the house back in the 50's. We are also having a Maple that is near the house trimmed. DH and I discussed options and called and booked the one we chose. We will charge it to a card I pay off each month that we will get $$ back on. They are coming the 25th. I have half the fee already to pay the day I charge it, and the other half I will have before the billing cycle posts. Glad we will be doing this.
I have blanched and frozen 4 more lbs of Broccoli Rabe. Freezers will now be where I 'shop' for the rest of the month. Need to make room for Turkeys and Turkey Breasts!
All bills are now paid.
I went to Target (got health/beauty items) I went to Michaels (I was told my stickers suck (I G rated it for my FB post, LOL), I went to Walgreens to get my scripts and also some Purex for the current SavingsStar deal. I really do not NEED any laundry detergent right now, but I am thinking I will gift it.
I also am getting more proactive in fighting for what's mine and finding more ways to save.
Savingstar shorted me by $3.47 in my crediting towards the $5 back goal. It was a true transposition, but the old me would have let it go. Not this time! I emailed them. Let's see if they correct the error.
My Crohn's medication is covered for the rest of the year as I have met my deductible. I just pay a $25.00 copay. However in January it will cost me almost $700 a month! Good news is it will go towards my deductible. Bad news is the amount of money. I have started to rectify this.
If I order it through Express Scripts in November I will get three months for the price of two. This means that it will get my first month into the new year for Free. Actually if I do all our scripts (DH has one, I have 7!) it will save us over $1000 a year!
I also have the paperwork to file for payment assistance with the drug company. I'm not sure we will qualify, but I am definitely going to try. Paperwork is all ready for the Dr to fill out when I revisit him in February.
