My first week of 30 days of nothing inspired spending had it ups and downs. My $60 worth of groceries did last us the week and although I spent a few dollars more this week, I did manage to stick to a carefully planned list. What I did not do so well on was my other spending. I did at least consider our true need for each item more carefully before buying though. Change is hard, my friends, and I am a sucker for a bargin on cute baby clothes.
This week is filled with busy nights so I have gone with leftover night, easy meals and crock pot meals. Exciting, I know.
Saturday: Pasta with Pesto and Tomatoes
Monday: Leftovers from Sunday (we have a fridge full)
Tuesday: The girls and I have a birthday party; Daddy is on his own
Wednesday: Pierogies and Broccoli
Thursday: Spaghetti and Meatballs
Friday: Mexican Style Slow Cooker Chicken
