It's nice to look back on a weekend and see that you actually accomplished something, isn't it? This weekend while Geoff wrote his last 2 papers for the school year, I bebopped around doing things here & there. On Friday night, I set out to be frugal in my grocery shopping. We have an Aldi's pretty close to us, but I hadn't been going because it is out of my way & I wasn't too impressed with the store when I first moved here. Well, after reading through some frugal-minded blogs (see my link for the Indian Monk), I decided I needed to be a better steward of the money God had given me. I was surprised to see all of the things that we use so often, and for so much cheaper! After Aldi's, I set out for Wal-Mart, local outlet store, & the grocery store.
I have to interject here a good deal that I got at our mini outlet store here. Since I began walking, I've been using a sports bra that I got before marriage & to be honest it wasn't doing a great job. I looked at Kohl's which is nearby & usually has good deals on that kind of stuff, but all they had were $40 bras! As if I would pay that much for something I'm only wearing 30-40 minutes a day. At the outlet, I got a name brand one for $5. Nice!
On Saturday, I straightened up our house, went to our church's camp to help clean & get ready for this summer, weeded out my flower beds & planted some seeds, made dinner, and crocheted. We went to church on Sunday, ate lunch, I took a nap while Geoff slaved over a paper, I proofread his paper (what wife of a student doesn't?), & went to bed. Nothing spectacular, but profitable.
I'm kinda hanging on the edge of whether to try out Body for Life Challenge or not. I guess I could, & if I don't like it, just quit - doesn't that sound promising!
