Re: Daily Check in Sept 14, 2015

Approximately half this house is tile floors, so it's a lot of mopping. I also need to clean an ottoman that one of th...

Re: Daily Check In September 13

It's been ages since I went grocery shopping on a Sunday, but we had run out of bread and milk, so it was kind of necessary. The checker at Aldi said they used to have lulls in business, like on Monday afternoon, but that word seems to have gotten out and they stay busy all the time now.

Re: September No Spend Challenge 2

The spreadsheet I had been using to track spending since May was one of the casualties of my recent disastrous computer upgrade. However, I do remember roughly what I had left in the budget for the month -- about $147 left for groceries -- and the number of no-spend days. Yesterday made 7 completely...
