I only have one spend day a week ! We are saved a great deal of money during lockdown. Lots of our direct debits put themselves on hold or offered money back which was jolly nice ! DH a bit cross that The National Trust Did NOT but I didn't mind , they have opned up some gardens to visit but we have yet to venture out.

We USE IT UP like mad things and our food waste is very good, especially as we have a compost bin and use egg shells as snail deterrents.

I feel like the Queen in that we haven't touched cash since mid march . We used what we had as tips for binmen, postmen and a delivery driver .

DH has been dehydrating frsh herbs as well.

I want to come out of this better off and better prepared.
I understand perfectly about wanting to be better off and better prepared. I asked Hubby to bring up my dehydrator this week as a few of my herbs are ready to be harvested a bit and dehydrated.

Started stocking up on a few more items and if things have been unavailable for awhile, I grab a couple when I see them. Still having trouble getting yeast or bread flour here.

Action Items

1. Sew elastic loops in masks.

2. Knit like a mad woman on the last sock.

3. Do some more extra cleaning for the month.

4. Add something in to daily exercise routine.

5. Gather items necessary for the knitting of mittens next month.

I will be doing the last of the spending for the month today. Getting our allowances, and dropping the tithe off at the church.

This leaves me sitting at 22 no spend days for the month.

I did not complete all the action items from yesterday so will add those to today.

1. Gather necessary yarn leftovers for the month of mitten knitting.

2. Do extra cleaning on my months list.

3. Continue knitting like a mad woman on the last sock for this month.

5. Get allowances and drop off tithe at church.

6. Do budget up for the month to see how we did.
