*I made all meals at home and packaged up left-overs for dh's lunch tomorrow (plus enough for kids and I to have lunch too).
*CD'd/BF'd younger son
*Used a gift card to get some coffe (actually got a large for dh/me, and a kid's sized for our boys to share ... all for $1.95)
*The biggest thing, though is that dh and I went through last month's spending (we started writing down what we spend on a white board in the kitchen and adding it up as we go through the month). We noted where we spent more than we should have (sam's and target) and then talked about what to do to dramatically reduce that. Having it in writing is so cool ... I hated seeing it this month because we were way over the budget we set for ourselves, but having the amount and store listed there really let us see exactly where our money was going (we don't write down "bills" like electricity, other utilities, mortgage, but rather our spending ... groceries, target trips, fabric
...). Now I have a better plan for next month!
*Oh, I planned out this week's meals and went shopping and spent a fraction of what I usually do ... I have dinner for all week (through Saturday night), which 99% of the time includes lunch for dh.
Tomorrow I hope to get a batch of bread in the bread machine and some yogurt a'culturing.
ETA: Totally forgot, I used my Diva cup (totally ROCKS!
) and a cloth liner.
