Home > $239


December 9th, 2016 at 01:45 pm

As of today we have $239 left to spend before payday on the 15th of this month. Personally, I'm staying out of the stores, and limiting my driving. I'm also eating things from our fridge and pantry that wouldn't be my first choices, but that will help the grocery bill. I may revise our meal plan for next week to make sure we stay within budget as well.

Right now I feel pretty confident we can make it within our spending limits, but sometimes things come up that can't wait. So my fingers are crossed we can do it.

Since I'm doing Christmas shopping, I have been spending my time at home decluttering a bit. I always feel we are pretty pared down, and that is true compared to many, but I can always find something we no longer need and use. I have an update of my progress in this area on

Text is Your Organized Friend and Link is
Your Organized Friend. Is anyone else decluttering this month?

    I have been decluttering and organizing for our move in June. The rule is anything new that comes in, a minimum of three items need to go. My son has been working on his room and then I will make a trip to Goodwill. I also have boxes to give my older kids when they come for a visit in May.

    Laura, a move is a great motivator! Sounds like you have a great plan to send out more than you are bringing in as well.

    I'm usually much better at decluttering, lately it seems like everything is on hold until the weekend, when I play "catch up"!

    I haven't really done any decluttering in awhile ... maybe one of the long weekends coming up - though there's tons of other projects I could also do.

    I have not been faithful in decluttering. Between volunteering and enjoy Christmas activities. I'm struggling just to keep the laundry done and house picked up.
