Today will be no spend, but tomorrow will not be. I plan on picking up a few groceries (dairy and fruit) even before I hit Costco while at youngest DS's as well as pay some bills before I leave.

Action Items.

1. Finish deadheading petunias (always knew there was a reason I did not like petunias).

2. Work on sewing the dress I have had cut out for months (with any luck finish it at one point today).

3. Make a few items to take to DS's in his care package.

4. Help Hubby with the tree branches.

5. Make grocery list.

6. Go for a walk before it gets too hot.

Well today will be a spend day. Which will leave me at 13 so far for the month. Still very respectable considering the amount of month that is left.

Action Items

1. Finish the hem and bit of redo on the dress I made.

2. Cut out more feminine masks.

3. Rethread sewing machine to start sewing masks.

4. Weed the planters and such once again.

5. Go shopping.

6. Finish baking.

June has not been a good month so far in the spending area.

I'm pretty sure I am still sitting at 3 no spend for the month..

I do have to say that June has been a very productive month so far, and am hoping that that part continues.

No spending yesterday so I get to change my no spend days to 14. Today will be a spend day though as yesterday I remembered I need fuel for my trip to DS's, and to pick up prescriptions. Put off the shopping until today.

Action Items

1. Finish baking.

2. Sew at least two masks to take to DS.

3. Water those plants that did not get rain.

4. Pack for my trip (at least pack what I can).

This will be a no spend day (did go shopping yesterday) so I am going to be sitting at 15 no spend days. I have a feeling I will more than make up for it come my Sunday shop at Costco.

Action items

1. Pack car.

2. Safe journey to DS's.

3. Finish off the elastic in the two masks so I can take them and the filters to DS's.

4. Do Friday's household tasks before I leave.

So Saturday was no spend which brought me to 16 so far this month. Today will be a no spend which will raise the number to 17. There is still hope to reach the goal I set for myself if I only spend on one day this week.

Action Items

1. Finish preparing meat bought on Sunday for the freezer.

2. Get the unfinished household tasks from yesterday completed.

3. Set up sewing machine for next mask sewing project.

4. Take pictures out of folding screen and get the screen ready to sell or donate.
