1/7 - $0 Best friend invited me to lunch and we went somewhere that I had a gift card which I don't count since it didn't come out of the budget.

I haven't sold any of DH's clothes yet so if they don't sell by the weekend I am going to start a garage sale pile for those items I can't sell now. We have a community wide Garage Sale in May and we always make about $100. I know not a lot but it is better then nothing and once the sale is done I will donate the lefterover items.

Today would have been SO easy to eat out, but I made dinner here. Have to celebrate the small victories!
Great job on the eating in!!

Thanks for the encouragement. Plugging along with this. Ate out tonight prior to CCD as it was Moe Monday & burrito, chips & drink are $5. Of course, it was not worth the 12 miles round trip to come home for the 90 minutes & DS needed balsa wood for Science Olympiad tomorrow so I hit Michael's. Good thing was everything I bought for scrapbooking/stickers/paper was in clearance so with the balsa wood total was $10.72, could've been worse. Target was $11.02: 2 bath towels (clearance for $2 each), 1 pack Valentines day paper, 2 big Jake & pirate pencils for DS2 for plane to Disney, 2 package Goldfish & 2 can tomato soup. Also returned a $20 video game. Thanks to this thread & destash, I am thinking very carefully prior to buying if I need it & how long will I be storing it!! Double motivation!

Not crazy at all!! When there are six people in the house it just makes more sense. I can glance at the calendar and know right off the bat, DS16 has a meet and DS12 has art class on the same day.
Ask Nancy, there are months that it looks like a rainbow threw up all over my calendar.

Oh and I have a back up calendar on my phone and I can color code the kids there too.

My mother always did that for the 5 of us too. We even had colored coded cups, plates, toothbrushes, towels, and everything- it was easy to see whose was whose on everything and what needed cleaning and replacement.

I think today will end up being a $0 day too! Although I'm soon going to hafta take a big hit. DS just announced their class will be taking a senior trip. Who knew being a senior was so expensive? Those of us who have first time senior kids should get some kind of warning.

For all of those who haven't had a senior yet, here's your warning. Its expensive!

Pictures
School pictures
cap & gown
yearbook
yearbook dedication
SAT
ACT tests
Advanced Placement Tests
Sending SAT results
Applying at Colleges
College Visits
Housing fee
Tuition down payment
Graduation Announcements
Senior Trip....and on and on and on!
