Money I Spent: $1 for coffee in the building next door.

Money I Didn’t Spend or Extra Money I Made:  Kind of needed to go to Walmart but decided to wait till tomorrow. We are taking steps toward cutting DirectTV so that will be a huge savings. I keep really wanting to get our house cleaning service back, but that’s like $200/month. Also we need a new chair/couch because the springs have gone all SPROIING in my side of our double recliner thing, but we can put that off a month.

eBay: Sold a pair of Marvel comics boots for $18.75 (bought for $1 at Goodwill 99c store). Sold a little wallet for $18.65 (bought for 50c at Salvation Army).

Use It Up Challenge:  Got to cut open my toothpaste this morning, which I kind of enjoy.

Sugar I Ate: Nothing really. Had stevia in my coffee, diet coke before dinner, and a lemonade packet in my water, but no serious sugar.

Sugar I Avoided: I avoided the red velvet cake at work today!

Thoughts: Going without sugar is harder than going without money.

  1. Money I Spent: 14.42 at Subway for sandwiches for the 3 of us. Dad and Sabrina get 6″ and I get 12″ and eat the second half for supper or next day’s lunch. topped off gas tank for 13.66. Paid Wicket’s charge at et but BA will reimburse for that so not too bad, 28.08 all together.

    Money I Didn’t Spend or Extra Money I Made:

    Use It Up Challenge: still working on mushy posole and blackeyed peas that are in the refrigerator.

    Sugar I Ate: I did have a serving of frozen cheesecake, probably had a little sugar…….

    Sugar I Avoided: all the rest

    Thoughts: Thinking it is time to clean out refrigerator of all old stuff and start over!


  2. Money I Spent: $0 day!

    Money I Didn’t Spend or Extra Money I Made: Brought a good lunch and didn’t need to spend any money.

    Use It Up Challenge: Leftovers for lunch.

    Sugar I Ate: None.

    Sugar I Avoided: I really wanted some of the red velvet cake someone had brought to work, and I had every intention of using La Luz as an excuse to go and have a slice. Then I got busy and forgot about it. That’s good, I guess, but I had every intention of eating some of that damn cake. Also, the candy jar in the manager’s office across the hall from me constantly beckons…but I see and avoid.

    Thoughts: I need a bunch more $0 days this month…and the rest of the year for that matter.
