Money I Spent:   $135 or so at WalMart for groceries. We needed a lot of stuff plus I didn’t do my intense planning (I did no planning) so we just winged it. This amount is typical of “no planning” shopping trips, and $60 is doable if I spend an hour or more planning (and saying NO to things in the store). Also $40 at Flying Star for lunch, just because it felt like we were already off the rails so why not.

Money I Didn’t Spend or Extra Money I Made:  Didn’t avoid spending today obviously.

eBay: Sold two purses and a pair of shoes for a total of about $68.

Use It Up Challenge:  Nothing really on Saturday.

Sugar I Ate: Started the day off with oatmeal cookies, which wasn’t ideal, though they were delicious. After dinner had about 1/3 of one of Sabrina’s homemade cupcakes, then told her to either eat the rest or throw them away!

Sugar I Avoided: Avoided getting anything sweet at Flying Star!

Thoughts: Sunday will be a spendy day too, as I’m treating Sabrina to pre-7th-grade manicures/pedicures, and a haircut for her, then volleyball shoes and supplies at Dick’s, and probably lunch out. Then I can get back to fiscal fasting on Monday. I should be able to stay away from sugar most of Sunday.

  1. Money I Spent: $0 spent today, but only because Beth bought groceries and lunch.

    Money I Didn’t Spend or Extra Money I Made: I had the time and the means to get a post-CrossFit Nitro Cold Brew from Starbucks. I even had to drive right by there on my way to Walmart…but I kept my head and eyes forward and avoided a $5 treat.

    Use It Up Challenge: Preparing a very large Boston butt pork roast for smoking tomorrow. It’s been in the freezer for a while now, so good to be finally cooking it.

    Sugar I Ate: Sabrina made oatmeal cookies…literally my kryptonite. I love those things, and I ate an amount that I refuse to disclose. (More than two, less than 12…I think.)

    Sugar I Avoided: (eyeroll) Okay, like Beth, I didn’t order dessert from Flying Star. I need to rein in my sugar thing.
