Money I Spent:  $0, didn’t leave the house

Money I Avoided Spending: Easy to spend $0 when you don’t leave the house!

Extra Money I Found or Made: eBay: sold 2 black leather purses for $21 each (weird coincidence); sold 1 puzzle for $25. Sold some 1984 World’s Fair lapel pins for $14.95; cabinet hinges for $20; and a Christmas stocking hanger for $30.

Use It Up Challenge: Into the black-eyed peas for dinner went a ham bone from the freezer.

Thoughts: January 1 is a great day… feeling in control before everything spirals into chaos 😀


  1. Money I Spent: $50. Not a great way to start off FF January, but, I had to register for a Jiu Jitsu seminar on January 26th before it filled up.

    Money I Avoided Spending: I didn’t plan to spend any today, plus we were snowbound.

    Extra Money I Found or Made: None today.

    Use It Up Challenge: Meals today were all food on hand. Diced up some bell peppers that were getting old to make them easier to use. Also put some still good but older veggies through the Vitamix blender this morning. Made a delicious and very healthy smoothie.

    Thoughts: Think I can have $0 days the rest of the week…


  2. So such an easy $0.00 day. 18 inches of snow or so and we did not go out and about. We are cooking our blackeyed peas, nothing fancy, kind of a soup I guess. peas, bacon and onions in the crockpot, may put in a bay leaf and garlic. We are still putting away some Christmas stuff but should get done today. Hopefully tomorrow will be $0.00 again.
