Day 7 of no spending. So far this month I have been able to contain the want to get out and spend as things are opening up feeling. I am going out once a week as is usual and getting all spending done on those days. Bills are being paid on line on those days as well.

Action items

1. What I did not get accomplished yesterday.

2. My daily list of tasks finished.

3. Some extra cleaning for the month done.

4. Perhaps a small goal for the month completed as well.

2. Knitting.

3. Calling DS re his physio appointment later this evening.

4. Making my shopping list for tomorrow.

5. Phoning the pharmacy re my prescription refill.

6. Cleaning off the decks.

I will only be out for my daily walk, and working in the yard, so I can safely say this will be a no spend day. Brings me to 9 for the month so far.

Action Items

1. Sewing.

2. Knitting.

3. Getting caught up around the house.

2. Water plants.

3. Research on whether or not you can use an electric roaster as an oven for baking.

4. Get two smaller goals completed or at least near completion done today.

Another no spend day coming right up. This will put me at 12, which is a very good thing. A Costco run is coming up and that is always an expensive one day trip. However it does save cash in the long run.

Action Items

1. Finish a goal.

2. Do some extra cleaning.

3. Get baking supplies out to soften tonight so I can bake tomorrow.

4. Rethread and set up machine for next project.

5. Deadhead some of the plantings.
