Re: Our 2019 No Spend Challenge

I had not planned on grocery shopping until April but Ruler had a $5.00 off of $30.00 coupon in their weekly flyer.

Re: Daily Check In March 21, 2019

Good morning. I have been up for quite a while. Took trash to my brother's before the sun came up. Just as I arrived the sun peeped over the trees across the valley.

The outside temperature is in the mid 50's and the house only dropped from a high of 73F to 72F over night. I have been tossing aro...

While the trip was good, it did a number on my back — aggravated the tendon/bursitis issue in my hip. So trying to get the kinks worked out. On the bright side, I officially have health...
