Completed one saving chart thanks to doing frugalwoods uber challenge. I printed a one month calendar to keep track of how much we spend on what. To close the holes where $$ is going through.
Paid all of Jan bills and 1st 10 days of Feb. AND still have $$ in bank.
Gathered everything for taxes...waiting for the 1099s from the bank and from one of Hubby's hobby jobs.
Made the menu for the month and then realized I won't be home for a week since I will be staying with Son 2 when he has surgery. SO need to put in freezer meals Hubby can warm in microwave. Which fruit we are to eat is listed every day. I will base the second part of the month which will actually only be 8 days due to me being gone, to using up what is in the house . So far that means I get milk and maybe kale or fresh salad the second part of the month.
I ordered from Amazon (no where around here to get this) my special condiments and spices. I was completely out and was putting off some of the meals because of it. I kept putting the ingredients on the wish list and then ordered it today after we talked over about the menu AFTER I remembered I would be gone.
Figured out when I need to start my seeds as a couple years ago I started too soon and ended up transplanting my tomato plants 3 times before it was time to put them out.
Declutter 365... everything on the Jan calendar except the spice and herbs cabinet. Printed off the Feb calendar of decluttering.
