Money I Spent:  $29.92 to gas up my car; $57.00 at WalMart for things like dog food, water, and medicine. $19.00 at Sonic for Sabrina’s post-shot treat-a-palooza (she got a snack, a dinner for later, and a shake… it was a lot of food).

Money I Didn’t Spend or Extra Money I Made:  Avoided spending a lot more money at Wal Mart — it’s hard to keep to a list at WM but we did it. Well we bought a bag of Taki’s that weren’t on the list…. but it’s a new flavor 🙂 Had to try it.

eBay: Sold a needlepoint on eBay for $26.50. Bought at an estate sale for probably 50c – $1.

Use It Up Challenge:  Got 2 days out of the cut-open toothpaste tube. Used up several dinners worth of leftovers for lunch.

Sugar I Ate: Someone brought in some “granola bites” to work, and they looked like a granola/oat/raisin/peanut butter ball, so I thought it would be “bad” but not horrible. Took a couple of bites and found it to be mostly sugar and brown sugar, so I threw the rest away. It was so much sugar it wasn’t even good. Weird, I know! Also had a few sips of Sabrina’s drink at Sonic.

Sugar I Avoided: Avoided eating that granola bite!


Sugar fast thoughts: I like avoiding sugar in the small places (pointless munching on Oreos after dinner just because they are there, ordering ice cream at Sonic just because I’m there) and saving up for real fun stuff (homemade apple pie!). It feels good to be in control.

Fiscal fast thoughts: I like avoiding spending money in small places (random WM or Amazon purchases, shopping for sport at Target, etc.) and saving it up for real fun stuff (Christmas, travel, etc.). It feels good to be in control!

  1. Money I Spent: $0!

    Money I Didn’t Spend or Extra Money I Made:Nothing comes to mind today.

    Use It Up Challenge:Leftovers for lunch.

    Sugar I Ate: More importantly, sugar I avoided…

    Sugar I Avoided: There were free donuts in the pod at work today. I wanted one REALLY bad, but I ate a peach I brought from home instead.

    Thoughts: Donuts taste better than peaches.


  2. Money I Spent: I was not feeling good so didn’t really want to spend money or eat much. Dad went shopping for Wed night’s enchilada supper and other stuff we needed so that was 22.67 at Walmart and 23,94 at Smith’s.

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

    Use It Up Challenge: Didn’t really cook a meal, I had eggs and waffles for breakfast and eggs and toast for supper, and Dad had something from fridge. So pretty much use it up.

    Sugar I Ate: I don’t think I had any

    Sugar I Avoided:

    Thoughts: My eggs and toast was really good- should have that for breakfast most days!! Other – I know several things I want to get people for Christmas, should I get now or wait? Maybe to honor FF I will wait till next month.
