We made it through the weekend without spending money. Are you proud? Well you should be. It was really hard to sit around the house twiddling our thumbs for hours on end. This whole experience has really opened my eyes to how much money we waste. Everything I like to do involves spending money.
Our trip to Target to buy milk was horrible. They have lots and lots of clearance goodies right now. ADORABLE Christmas dresses were marked down to $4. Toys were marked 75% off. And there were rows and rows of shoes on clearance. I love finding a good deal, so it was really tough passing up all of those awesome deals. If I hadn't brought John along, I probably would have purchased Porgie some sparkly red dress shoes (they were 50% off!). But I was a good girl and kept my wallet closed.
Although we have enough food to feed our family for the next week, our other supplies are dwindling fast. As of today we need cat food, laundry detergent, dish liquid, and shampoo. These are things I didn't consider last week when we embarked on this crazy scheme. I might be able to stretch the detergent and shampoo for a few more days, but I am pretty sure we are going to have to buy the cats some food. Damn cats.
The good news is that my husband gets paid on Friday. And my blog will no longer be filled with boring ass "I have no money and life is soooooo hard" posts. THANK GOD.
