Money I Spent: $72 for Sabrina’s filling, $4 or so at Sonic for ice cream treats after filling.

Money I Didn’t Spend or Extra Money I Made:  Didn’t really avoid much spending. I’m virtual-shopping for a wine fridge, but haven’t bought anything yet.

eBay: Sold a souvenir painting type thing for $19.95. Bought for $1 at Salvation Army about a year ago.

Use It Up Challenge:  Made dinner using stuff we had in freezer and pantry: “pasta bake” with turkey burger, pasta sauce, and garden zucchinis and peppers in it.

Sugar I Ate: Way Way Way too much. I’m back on the no-sugar bandwagon as of now. Today I had a total of 3 small Christmassy cupcakes and an ice cream cone at Sonic.

Sugar I Avoided: None, apparently. Tomorrow will be better.

Thoughts: Sabrina asked if she could make a cake or cupcakes and I said no, knowing that if she made them I would NOT be able to say no to them. She really wanted to make something, so I figured I would just let her do it, and stay away from it altogether, and everything would be fine…. Which did not work AT ALL.

  1. Money I Spent: $10.65 to Post office to send John Moore some dry posole and red chile powder. $8.20 to Golden Pride for Dad some chicken and some flour tortillas. $16.18 to Ho La Ma for a dozen egg rolls, some we ate some to freezer for a lunch or light supper some day. A couple of egg rolls and bowl of tomato or chicken noodle soup is good for a light meal. 25.60 to Smiths for water and a few staples.
