I haven’t been great on my goals for the Low/No Spend Challenge. I didn’t write everything that we spent this weekend!! I know approximately how much we spent and where, and how much we have left. So here’s the approximate amounts:
Saturday, January 14
- Freshco ~ $21.50
- Food Basics ~ 112.50
- Shoppers Drug Mart ~ $40
- Fortinos ~ $40.00
Sunday January 15th
- OHL game ~ $10.00 for snacks
- Michaels ~ $40.00 (will talk about that in a bit)
- Food Basics ~ $26.00 for stuff we missed the day before, LOL
Monday January 16
- No Spend Day!
Tuesday January 17
- Gas ~ $40.00
So we have $70.00 left until Thursday when we top up our jars.
I have also started knitting again! I finished 2 projects; a girl’s sweater and a scarf for Amy (pictures to come later). Amy asked me if I could teach her, so we went to Michaels as they were having a sale on wool. So now we are both going to start another hobby! I started off making a pair of mittens for our Meri out of the wool that was left over from the sweater:
I am making an identical pair for Charley, and then I am going to try my hand at crocheting some slippers. Knitting mittens makes me miss my Grandma a bit. She was always making mittens (among other projects). I miss my Grandma mitts!!
That’s about it for now…hopefully I will find the time to post a bit more!
