No unplanned/unbudgeted spending:
Ate at home all day:
Did something mindfully frugal:
No-unbudgeted-spending days: 1/25
Mindfully frugal days: 1/25
10/6: Dresses for girls: $59; Groceries: $45
10/8: Had to spend $11 at Office Depot; bought a protractor, some decent pencils, and two handheld pencil sharpeners (our electric one is pooping out). We had lunch out, but the girls paid for themselves and my cup of soup (they REALLY wanted Panera and had birthday money), so it was a no-spend lunch, at least. Made burgers for dinner and dug up and roasted the very last of our garden potatoes and beets. Oh, and I forgot my mindfully frugal act! I planted 32 cloves of garlic (to harvest next June), and I planted some greens in a last-ditch effort to have a fall crop. I'm 90% sure I waited too long, but I figured it couldn't hurt to try!
