This week has actually been pretty decent as far as spending. Even though Kurt and Kris were home I stuck to my menus, used items I had on hand, and only bought dairy and produce to make salads. Fact of the matter is both boys helped clean out leftovers in the fridge and even bought us a treat or two while they were home (free treats are on par with winning cash around here).
I have been walking every day this week, even when the weather has been not too nice. Frugal and free, probably just as healthy for a person as joining an expensive gym (around here gym memberships are very high, same for the cost of a personal trainer). Today I added stair climbing to my routine of two walks a day.
Laundry was done in the usual frugal manner with half the detergent and I washed and rinsed in cold where possible. I even managed to get three of the 5 loads on my basement drying lines.
I have started the Silent Auction gifts and am using yarn that I have on hand. Much of the yarn I have been using are bits and bobs from other projects. I am hoping to have 10 or 11 small items made by the end of the month.
I have worn my clothing (other then shirts and under garments) for at least two days. This should save on wash loads.
Best of all, I have walked down memory lane scanning pictures of family and friends.
Everybody have a wonderful evening.
