Update on Challenge

March 17th, 2007 at 12:00 pm

Well, It's been longer than I wanted since my las entry. With taxes finished and returns received I decided to update my $20.00 Challenge again.
I did our taxes online vs the accountant with a savings of $142.50 and I've sewed 2 pairs of pajama pants at a total savings (after expenses) of $18.00.
Here are the savings per day:
March 4 & 5 - NS $2.00
March 6 - CT $2.50
March 7 - NS $1.00
March 8 CT & OOL - $12.50
March 9 CT - $2.50
March 10, 11 & 12 - NS $3.00
March 13 - CT & NS $3.50
March 14 CT & OOL $12.50
March 15, 16 & 17 NS - $3.00
ADDITIONS: $203.50
NEW TOTAL: $415.48

One thing I want to clear up is that I have combined trips and also No Spend Days because I purchase gas on one of the days I combine trips so I don't consider it as spending "again" when I drive.

I'm currently sewing a queen size 90"x 106" quilt for our bed. I have to total the costs to date and then do some searching as to what it would cost to purchase one made by hand. It will probably take me through the summer to complete it considering I plan on planting a small garden to save on produce costs.

Hope all are doing well with the challenge. I have read and commented on a few and it seems that anyone doing this is constantly looking for new ways to save/recycle and re-think how they live their life...a good thing for Mother Earth!
