The elastic on this 100% cotton knit pair of boxers died, there is a small hole in the fabric. Instead of tossing them, I cut off the button from the fly (to the button box it went), the spent elastic was tossed, the boxers cut into 2, generous sized use and toss rags. I have certain categories of rags; these are the clean up something gross and have no qualms about simply tossing it. There are times that these more dispendible rags are reused. More will be created, so no worries. I rarely use paper towels, I still have a roll originally opened about 4 years ago. Seriously. They are pretty much eliminated for me.
I have just a few more of the bonus slices of Deli turkey breast left, about 14 hard boiled eggs for sandwich fillings, going into the new week. While PB & J, tuna as well as grilled cheese are options, adding meatloaf sandwiches is a welcomed addition to the lunch menu.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rfPof73YF94 which profiles a family eating typical meals from the 1950's thru the 1990's. I found it interesting, and noted that still do alot of the "old ways"-guess that's part of my family's recent immigration to the US.
Today's freebies included this SNAP tote bag, a magnetized shopping list note pad, seasonal (raspberries) recipes and this strawberry.
Untie the drawstring and turn it inside out of itself, and a 2 handled tote appears.
One freebie that wasn't available to me was the free bus pass back home. An organizer of the farmer's market had me write my name down, she will assure that I get 2 free bus passes next week. More than fair. Normally, a one way fare is $1.50. My discounted, prepaid ticket brings it down to $1.35. A round trip would therefor cost $3 normally, or $2.70 with prepaid . Toss in the free pass back from the market, my round trip tickets are now down to $1.35. 18 farmer's markets are planned until the end of October, so I'll save $29.70 over the course of the "season," and the convenience is great-not having to deal with parking.
Other items/freebies available included nutritional info, children's reading books, an oven mit and some plastic gizmo that I couldn't figure out what it was. I also took my $2 coupon voucher from the local Penny Saver (I have another one to use next week)
