  1. Short leave of absence.

    by , 08-26-2013 at 06:04 PM (My Journey on the Frugal Side of life)
    I just can't stay away any longer. My 6 week planned LOA from the Village has been reduced to just 8 days. I like it here. I miss learning from you all and posting to keep me accountable and focused on my goals of saving money and reducing debt.
    I wonder who won the PCH sweepstakes today? Can you imagine winning $5000 a week for the rest of your life? Could you remain grounded in living a simple, frugal life? What would you do with the money? We can dream can't we!?

  2. Missed a few days.

    Been busy working. Picked up 5 hours yesterday on my day off. Haven't spent anything in a few days except $60 for my dd's parking pass at school. Had my annual performance review at work tonight. I got a raise of .27. Believe it or not that "huge" amount is unheard of normally.....LOL. I know I don't make much, but that is actually a good raise for where I work.

    Tommorow is my 1 day off this week. Going to clean house all day and eat leftovers so no cooking. WOOHOO. ...
  3. Wed 8/21

    No spend day for me today. I worked and picked up 1 additional hour. Not much, but every little bit helps. Just had leftover enchilada soup from the freezer with some biscuits. She ate that when she got home, then around 7 she sauteed some onions, broccoli and carrots. SHRUG.Long boring day, but at least I didn't spend any money.
  4. Day 3 Tuesday 8/20

    It's 3 am. I fell asleep early and forgot to put the cat away. He woke me up at 2 crying at my bedroom door. Not sure why as he could go anywhere else in the house he wanted, and he isn't allowed in my room anyway. Stupid cat. Plans for today as I took today off work to catch up on some stuff:

    Super clean dining and living rooms
    wash my sheets
    Make banana nut muffins for the freezer
    Label freezer food I threw in there the other day without any labeling. ...
  5. Day 2

    Didn't do much at all on Monday 8/19. Spent several hours making phone calls in the morning that only frustrated me. Then worked from 2-6 with a meeting afterwards. Got off around 6:35. At least it was a no spend day, and that is what is important.
