Well the grand total on the quilts that we are donating to the veterans home is 29!
Next year I am going to start my blanket drive earlier and I will reach the goal of 50.
I did take a picture of all the blankets stacked up, but I can't get the darn picture to load. So goes my life with a slow crappy computer.
Right now I am the only one up, except for the kittens that I swear Rusty fed caffeine this morning.
I have super cleaned our bed room, got all of my laundry put away, and bleached out the litter box. Soon I am going to start to wake everyone else up and finish my cleaning.
I have a question for the universe. Why is it that I cleaned out my dresser drawers and get rid of stuff, but I still never have room in my drawers 2 months later? If my clothes are breeding then can't they breed into something new?
Last weekend a Reader Digest article caught my eye. So I bought the magazine. There is an article in there about a family that went on a zero spending diet for 30 day's. They did pay their bill's, and they set aside a certain amount for fresh fruit and vegi's, but once that money was gone it was gone.
The family in the article saved $2,000 a month. I know that I do not waste $2,000 a month, but I did wonder how much I could save if I really tightened down our spending.
The week that Jolynn was here I must have had Starbucks four time. Well heck that is $20 I just wasted. I have since washed out those starbucks cups and I am reusing them for my coffee to go.
I think that this is going to be a very interesting experiment, and I can't wait to see how much I do save.
I also hope to gain some new insight as to how I can reuse what I have. I hope to have to get creative with our food, instead of running to the store to buy one item to finish making a meal.
Ido know that by stretching my mind and by really thinking about every purchase, I know that I will walk away from this experiment a better person.
