Getting a Bit Tight

January 15th, 2019 at 01:54 am

We've paid both visa bills completely,so our travel bills are all accounted for. It's going to be a bit tight for the next month as my contractor husband won't get paid for while we're gone.

I haven't taken many steps toward frugality since we've been home, but we could take some steps towards eating through the freezer. Instead we've been doing some cleaning and decluttering. We thoroughly cleaned our fridge, have worked our way through the closet, and I'm cleaning the office and downstairs closet later this week.

Next weekend I'm off to Minnesota for a weekend with my best friends. One, a friend since second grade, has recently bought a house on the north shore of Lake Superior and is working half time in the Twin Cities. So we're all headed up north of Duluth where the temps should be below zero all weekend. I'm cold just thinking about it.

In the interest of frugality (ha), I've used gift cards earned from textbook reviews to buy a new jacket. I'm going to need it if we're snowshoeing this weekend!

I also need to load in 2019 goals. Many of them will be unaccomplished 2018 goals. It was that kind of year.

    I believe you can make it through a tight month! I'm working on our fridge and pantry to use things up in hopes to skip at least one week of grocery shopping!

    I think you did well using those gift cards for the new jacket. I agree, you may need it for your frosty weekend! Hope you don't freeze, but have a delightful time.

    I'm eating through the freezer and finally starting to see space in there! I've only spent $32 on groceries this month, so it's definitely worth doing.

    Hope your new jacket keeps you warm! Duluth is way up there!
