Tap, tap, tap. Anyone there?? I knew it had been a while since I sat down to blog, but I didn’t really think it had been two months! 😯 I’ve missed it so much honestly. I think I mentioned before that after Christmas I took a temporary part time job. And, it has literally rocked my world. I’m so used to having all the time in the world to do all the things. But, now I have about half the time that I had before, and I can’t seem to get anything but the necessities done. And, even those aren’t always getting done because I’m so ridiculously tired!! UGH! I’m glad it’s only temporary! But, don’t be surprised if I go dark again for another few weeks after this post. lol
Happy Friday friends!! Today is a special day at our home!! Our middle son is having a birthday! Caleb is 17 today! Seventeen??? How is that even possible?!? With every passing year I’m reminded how long ago this was…
Hey there friends! A couple of months ago, on prime day, I jumped at the chance to get myself an Instant Pot for a great deal. I have been wanting one for a while, but the price tag was holding me back. On prime day, it was almost half off! So, I snagged one. Yay! Of course then I had to learn how to use it. Haha!!
Well, we are one week into our “No Spend September” and man oh man has it been a challenge!! All the awesome Labor Day sales were a real temptation! But, I stayed strong and stayed away! Yay me! I did make a trip to Ikea with my daughter-in-law when we were in St Louis visiting, but I only bought two pillow covers, and I spent my cash allowance. 🙂 Today, however, I’d love to talk about one category of our budget that has always been a stumbling block…food.
Can you believe we are already to the end of August?? I’m tellin ya, time truly does fly when you’re having fun! Or maybe time moves faster as you get older. But, wait, I’m not getting older, so it must be the fun thing!! HAHAHA!! Anywho!! Did anyone read that title and panic a little for me?? I have panicked a little bit for myself this month as I’ve thought of it. But, have no fear, it can be done. How do I know that? Because we’ve done it before. It’s been a while, but we are in desperate need of a budget reboot. So, here we go!
