Oh Sew busy!!

March 2nd, 2007 at 06:38 pm

I can't believe that it's been just over 1 month since I last posted. I have been very busy sewing clothes and have started a quilt for DH and my bed...it will be quite big 90"x108" without the border. Taxes are finished and we should be receiving a small refund from each Federal and State returns. Well here goes my listings for each day. Just occurred to me that some might not know what my abreviations stand for- NS= No spend day, CT= Combined trips(saving gas),OOL=Only on list(no extras/impulse purchases), SP= Save on Postage, S/RC=Sew/Repair clothing(instead of using as a rag)and RC= Rolled coin.
Jan28th -NS $1.00
Jan 29th-NS $1.00
Jan 30th (BD)CT $3.50 and NS $1.00
Jan 31st NS $1.00
Feb 1st -CT $3.50, NS $1.00
Feb 2nd -CT $3.50, OOL $10.00
Feb 3,4&5 NS $3.00
Feb 6th CT $3.50, OOL $10.00, S/RC $3.00
Feb 7 NS $1.00
Feb 8th CT $3.50, OOL $10.00, SP .39
Feb 9, 10,11, 12 NS $4.00
Feb 13 CT $3.50, NS $1.00
Feb 14 NS $1.00
Feb 15 CT $3.50, OOL $10.00
Feb 16,17,18,19,20 NS $5.00
Feb 21 CT $3.50, OOL $10.00
Feb 22 CT $3.50
Feb 23,24,25,26 NS $4.00
Feb 27 CT $3.50, NS $1.00
Feb 28 CT $3.50, OOL $10.00
Mar 1,2,3 NS $3.00, SP .78

TOTAL $123.67
NEW TOTAL $211.98

I still have to figure out the savings for doing my own taxes versus the Accountant that DH uses(Used!!) and the savings of making my clothes VS the cost of purchasing them. The abrev. for sewing (making) clothes will be SC and will take the cost of fabric and notions needed to make item and subtract from the cost of a comparable item in the store.

Hope everyone is continuing on this journey we started in the beginning of the year. Promise to be better about writing more often.
