Today will be a no spend day which will bring me to 7 for the month. Looking forward to adding a few more days to this total.

Action Items

1. Knit mitts.

2. Weed garden.

3. Check baskets, planters and large boxes to see if they need watering.

4. Perhaps sew strips of denim together to start the first quilt top.

Hi Jackie,
I am not counting days, but I know our spending is down. We are saving a LOT by not filling our gas tanks. We go nowhere except to buy groceries...about every ten days.
Everything we order is charged. Groceries are charged. No one is handling cash at all.
We are spending more on groceries because we eat everything at home and food prices are going up.
