I think this might be the hardest thread to keep up with! I'm a couple of days behind.
Melissa -- Thank you!! I'm looking forward to more gardening fun this year.
MomtoRyan -- Yes, I think this is a legit expense! Even my husband agreed this is a legitimate expense, and he doesn't think anything is legitimate.

We focused on getting the landscaping done last summer - planted Hydrangeas, Knockout Roses and Spirea (I believe). We're going to bust up the sidewalk (for free, yay!) and put down a stone walkway (also free, many people in our families farm, lots of creeks to raid).
This sounds neat! I can't wait to hear how it work's out!

Yesterday, not my best day. I went to movies with friends, which I don't mind at all, because we don't get to hang out that much. The $20 at CVS was for pregnancy tests, which I am unable to resist. And yes, we have a dollar store, but I still feel the pull to CVS for First Response. Which was made all the worst this morning by my temp drop this morning. GRrrrrr.
Today, good stuff. I found a delicious recipe for homemade pizza crust, which we ended up having for lunch and dinner! Hehe.Actual:
4/31: cook at home

days: necessary spending or no spending (groceries, gas, copays, etc)

I'd like to cook dinner 25/31 days.
I'd like to eat dinner at home 29/31 days.
I'd like to complete my grocery pricebook by the end of the month.
I'd like to come under budget by $100 this month. This is a toughie, because our budget it pretty trim.
