Money I Spent: $0 This was my 15th $0 day this month!

Money I Avoided Spending: n/a

Extra Money I Found or Made: eBay – sold a purse for $12 and a set of books for $40.

Use-it-Up: Used up leftovers for multiple meals in my lunch (cauliflower rice, summer sausage, and mushrooms). It was so good! We had hamburgers for dinner and ate salads from our garden lettuces.

Don’t Go Into a Store: Success! Didn’t leave the house. Streak = 11 days

Exercise Every Day: Fail, technically. I didn’t go for a walk or anything specific for exercise, but…

Work Outside Every Day: Success! Trimmed trees and piled branches and raked sticks for a total of probably more than 2 hours (which feels like exercise though it’s not a lot of steps). Also watered plants in front and back yards.

Thoughts: Stay at Home Day Day 39. I’m so glad we have a large property with a lot of tending that needs to be done. It’s weirdly satisfying to know that when I’m done cleaning up the area I’m working on, there are 10 more areas or more that could use some trimming and cleaning. And now that we have our wood chipper on its way, I can cut down all the branches I want and not have to worry about them just stacking up for years. In the garden, I think I’ll hold off on green bean seeds and squash/melon for another week or two.
