It's been a while...Update

January 27th, 2007 at 07:29 pm

I've been in the middle of an upheaval here at home. DH has been temporarily change to the day shift at work (for 3 weeks so far and counting). This may not seem like a big deal but when you are used to working or setting up your day based on working the 2nd shift for over 29 years, it IS a big deal. Both of us do nothing more than get up, work and sleep.It's kind of like when a baby has days and nights mixed up...remember those days!! So needless to say, DH is working today, I babysat my grandson for 7 hrs and now playing catch-up on housework and writing my blog. I decided this takes precidence.
I'm going to list by date and amount saved, just to save time:
10th -$2.50 combined errands
11th -$1.00 NS (No Spend)
12th - $1.00 NS
13th - $1.00 NS
14th - $1.00 NS
15th - $12.89 Combined errands, purchased only what was on list and saved postage on mail
16th - $1.00 NS
17th - $3.50 combined errands and NS
18th $1.00 NS
19th - $1.00 NS
20th -$1.00 NS
21st - $1.00 NS
22nd - $1.00 NS
23rd - $12.50 Combined errands and only on list purchases
24th - $1.00 NS
25th - $2.50 Combined errands
26th - $1.00 NS
27th - $1.00 NS
So that's been it. For a total of $45.89 Saved since my last update. I want to come up with additional ways of saving money but feel brain dead right now. If anyone has any suggestions, please feel free to email me or put it in a comment about my blog.

I think that everyone doing this challenge has such inventive ideas, unfortunately I don't have the time to read all of the blogs to read what others are doing.

PREVIOUS TOTAL - $42.42
CURRENT TOTAL - $88.31

    Good for you for keeping track of no-spending days and making progress saving--even if you *don't* have time to write! Hope the transition settles down soon!
