After I get off of work I plan to get the following things done:

- Cook dinner
- Clean up after dinner
- Get one load of laundry done
- Fold some clothes that have been hanging dry
- I need to get a start on the weekends cleaning because I am working at my 2nd job a bunch this weekend. I am going to aim to get the great room straightened, dusted and vacuumed.
- After I get bored with cleaning I will work on my quilt and watch a little TV.

I haven't done much today. Had a friend over and made soap and that was about it. I've cleaned up most of the soapmaking stuff, but I still need to do dishes and think about dinner! I'll hit the gym tonight, but probably won't get much else done today!

not much going on here. Life has been fairly frugal for the past month. I can't get out much because of a hand injury, so I'm spending almost no money. Dh does spend a bit more on food than I'd like, but hey, he's cooking.

got a few things done today. Homeschooled the kids, cleaned the house top to bottom (I find the more often I do it the less time it takes), cleaned out the dog lots, and all the regular stuff. DH spent his day at the dr's office, so that was co-pay plus cost of prescriptions, but not too bad all together. Tomorrow will be my busy day. :)

Did what little I had to do. I have one little one getting over the flu, one with a fever and the last in a daze because we just had to change his meds.

So rest is what I plan to do.

No spend day today... Drove to school and straight home. Took nalgene bottles with water for beverage and a pb&j sandwich for lunch. We're eating odds'n'ends for supper so things don't go to waste... Fairly frugal day. :)

Well in honor of thrifty Thursday we...

went to the library
shopped at Aldi's
got some free shampoo at CVS
got some free Johnson's Buddies bars at Walmart

But, then we ordered pizza for dinner. LOL.. not so frugal but after all the errands it was late and we were hungry. At least we used a coupon.
