Low Spend Challenge Week 1
Meh. As I mentioned in my update, I ended up buying groceries for two weeks instead of one. I’m still on budget – I have $16.82 until Wednesday, which should be fine because I think we just need milk and bananas.
For Adam’s birthday, I went $5.24 over my gift certificate. I bought a lasagna that had the directions on the inside of the package. When I opened the package, I realized it would need to cook for TWO HOURS, time I did not have. I made pizza instead. So instead of $8.99 for the lasagna, we ate two $3.99 pizzas. We have enough lettuce and caesar dressing left over for dinner tonight and some bread, parmesan cheese and of course, a huge lasagna. So I went over but bought a bit too much. It’s nice to know for next year that I could do a birthday lunch for $25.
Decluttering Challenge Week #1: Personal Space
I completely this before my mother-in-law arrived but didn’t take pictures because I didn’t want to explain why I was taking pictures of trash.
A selection of clothes pulled from my closet plus other clothes heaped upon the heap because I was too lazy to hang them up properly.
A bag of new rags and…
… two bags to take donate.
