Many thanks to I am an organizing junkie for hosting the MPM event and to Money Saving Mom and Life as Mom for hosting the Eat from the Pantry Challenge.
We are in week 2 of the challenge and it has been going pretty well, if you don't count the budget wrecking trip to Costco on Saturday. Jeez!
And, last week's organization project got bagged. My parents are kind of in the middle of a remodeling project in their apartment, and the utility room is torn up, so instead of organizing the Christmas Decorations and wrappings, I got my office organized and cleaned up instead. To be honest, it really needed it quite badly, it had been several months since it had been done or done well. I am please to share that I am sitting at a clean desk (hey, its actually made out of wood!) while composing this post :) No bets on how long it will last though.
This week's organization project: Get my coupon binder back together!!
Additional goals for this week: Start planning Colby's bed room re-do and thinking about next year's garden.
Breakfasts this week will be cereal, eggs, toast.
Lunches this week will be left overs (if any), soups and sandwiches.
Sunday Recap from last week:
Hamburger Helper, Salad, Garlic toast - didn't happen. After Friday's from the Pantry Dinner, we didn't feel like doing another noodley kind of supper. Instead, we did an Appetizer night in front of the TV. We almost never eat away from the table, so it was a bit of a treat.
