Days 9 & 10

We picked up our grocery order for the week. I just about maxed out my grocery budget of $100 for the week for 5 people with a total of $84.31. This week, I decided to go ahead and get the amount of milk, orange juice, and bread we would need for the week to avoid an extra trip. Hopefully.

Only 4 more days left in the second week of January 2020 and I’m happy with my zero spend year progress so far. I have been tested a few times. Especially over a water misting sprayer that I picked up for my daughter for her birthday.

I really, really want one.


I don’t really need one at all.

I’ve gotten off track with my blogging routine. It’s getting hard to find time to get on the computer with all these other family members. Going to see about setting up an account for myself on the surface soon.

Some things I’m proud of so far this week are…

I used up some almost bad bananas, used more of a powdered kids drink mix that expires in March, and created a new meal plan.
