    Default 3-10-09 What are your "Tightwad Tuesday" plans?

    It is going to be around 70 today, then cool off to the 40's and 50's for the rest of the week. So I am going to enjoy being outside today.

    I have:
    -showered
    -coffee
    -FV
    -kids up and ready
    -getting ready to leave for work, should be done by noon

    Plan to:
    -go to the bank
    -rake the front yard
    -daily laundry, sweeping, and picking up
    -cook supper
    -read and relax

    It is pouring down rain here, so I don't think I'll be up to much!

    I have to:
    ~get kids up, dressed and fed
    ~Get one kid off to school
    ~Take DH some lunch
    ~Thaw out sausage for dinner

    What I would like to do:
    ~Get a few more crafty things done today
    ~Dishes (just a few sitting there)
    ~Keep up and do one load of laundry
    ~Fold and put away socks

    And that is about it. Anything else today will be a bonus!

    I have meetings at work today until 6:00 so it will be a late night at work for me. When I get home I will eat dinner and clean up from that. Other than that I hope to get a load of laundry done, fold all of the laundry that is hanging at this point and do some general straightening of the living room. After I am done with this I will probably put in a movie and work on my coupon lists for shopping tomorrow.

    For tonight, I want to make a list of activities that I should be learning to do, or getting done. I cut up a chicken today, made smothered chicken and chicken soup. Kids always say they don't want it, but already down more than a quart Found some really cheap pork a couple of weeks ago, so i'm thinking about throwing that in the crockpot ovre a bed of marked down onions, adding some mustard over the top and dumping in what's left of a bottle of vermouth. Should turn out fine and make otherwise tough meat much more palatable. Also, when I know I have something already made at home the temptation to feel sorry for myself for not eating out as i once did is much reduced. Plan on using some yarn scraps to make granny squares tonight while watching tv, and figuring out the menu for the rest of the week. Not accustomed to doing that, so wish me luck! Ideas for frugal meals much appreciated.

    Today was a day off from work. Fiance drove last night and was sleeping most of the day. I did breakfast dishes and swept kitchen floor before he wen to bed. Drank my 2 cup limit of coffee, folded closthes, took out the trash for tomorrows pick up. Put dinner in the oven, did dinner dishes, and worked on getting our debt written down for the reduction challenge. Now I'm taking a break and watching The Biggest Loser.Then it will be off to bed.
