Steering Back on Track

June 1st, 2015 at 06:31 pm

After the Door County expenses, now comes DD's summer camp expenses. So, to keep things as much in line as possible, we're going to need some simple weeks with limited spending. We have lots of food around, and not a lot of obligations. DD and DH have been going out to Noodles or some such place on the nights I teach. It's more cash, but I feel strongly it's better for them. They spend more time in conversation rather than hurrying back to their respective screens.

DH is flying back to the UK to see his dad later this week. It's another slightly optional expense, but his 89-year-old dad is failing and they need time together.

So, as you can see, we need to hold it down. I'm always looking for ways to economize and stretch. Hit me with some new ones! This is the week to try things!

    Good luck. I hope his dad is okay.

    Don't have any suggestions that you probably haven't already heard/thought about. Smile
    Noodles - is that a Thai type place? There was one in Dallas that I loved going to - cheap and GOOD vegetarian selections. I think I've seen one here, but I haven't gone there yet.

    Noodles isn't a Thai place. It features many types of meals that are based on noodles. My grandsons love it for the mac & cheese. I love it for the Indonesian sate. I know it offers many other selections, too, but those are the only ones we ever get!

    We get Japanese pan noodles--now they have a "bare" version with extra veggies instead of noodles. Delicious!
