More Used Up & Ebay

February 22nd, 2014 at 08:41 am

I used up more items yesterday! I made steel cut oats in the crockpot with the last (expired two days ago) four cups of milk. I divided the batch into four servings. I already ate one this morning, too. I made a batch of boxed brownies to use up the sour cream. Crazy huh? It replaces the oil. My kids haven't seemed to noticed the difference! We ate our pizza last night along with two of the three remaining apples. I have to say those apples did help me eat less of the pizza. Smile

There are still things to use up. I'm trying to focus on those things that have been in the cupboard and fridge for awhile. Some things we always use up. Like cheese and crackers. Others like milk, not so much. We have some ground coffee we received for Christmas that we used some of and then DH declared he didn't really like it. I will use it up this week, when he is not drinking coffee at home. I plan to have a mozzarella tomato sandwich for lunch...probably today and tomorrow to use up the ingredients left over from the last time we had those for dinner. Apparently some of us are getting burnt out from eating those! Not me. I think they are yummy. Although maybe a little caloric for my diet. Frown

I have plans to put three items on Ebay tomorrow. An electronic pet, a cat toy and a series of books. I may also have a curtain panel to list as well. Worth a try to get a few more things sold. I pulled the table we listed on Craigslist last week. I had zero responses. Not even spam! I will relist when the weather gets a little warmer AND take some better pictures.

What did you use up? Is your fridge or cupboards cleaner because of the use it up challenge? Are you selling anything right now?

    If you have ground coffee DH dislikes, you can add one scoop to the coffee in prefers in a 1:4 ratio without it being noticed. We were gifted flavoured ground coffee that DH abhors but I occasionally add 1 scoop to 4 in our regular brand to add a trace of lovely flavour. If you have instant hot chocolate powder, a scant tablespoon could make the coffee tolerable. If you use or like flavoured coffee that would be an option. Alternatively, if you drink coffee after dinner, adding a jig of liqueur makes nearly any coffee enjoyable.

    Snafu, my plan is to use as much as possible this week when I don't expect him to be drinking. After that I will be adding a little to our regular brand, just as you suggested. Smile
