2 More Days Until We Start This.....







There is this wonderful Blog that I follow called Bushel And A Peck. Christie is an amazing Momma of 2 beautiful children. She has created this family as we did by choosing to adopt. She did a challenge last yr. that I followed on and off of not spending for 30 days except for the essentials. So, she is doing it again and has challenged those that want to do it to bite the bullet and do it.

We have accepted the challenge and will be joining in on this journey. I still have a few things to do to prepare for the journey like buying hubby's BD present, BD cards, cake mix etc. Finishing off buying Princesses school supplies and Emperor's lunch bag. I think then I will be set.... I hope.



I have to admit 30 days without Starbucks is going to be hard for me.... Especially when the Pumpkin Spice Latte will be coming out around the corner.

Off to work I go to get my pantry in order and pick up anything we might need before the challenge starts. In many ways it will help me to be more prepared and to be creative with cooking. Which by the way is one of my favorite things to do! Maybe I will even start to make things more with all of the craft supplies I have lying around the house .....


Join in or follow along. We can always use the support to change old habits!

Interesting. I went to check out what this is all about and unfortunately this is how I live my life. Especially with one in college now. We don't eat out, I never go to the movies, or get Starbucks, or get pampered. Heck, I rarely get a haircut. If we can't pay cash, we don't get it. Am I perfect, no...I still buy some unnecessary things here and there, but that is at a minimum! I dream of not having such a tight budget one day!
