It is February and I just wanted to update on my no spend days.....19/31. Not to bad, we were able to put a couple extra hundred in the savings account. So I guess having no spend days really does help. The areas we did the best in were, only Friday's for eating out, making meals from scratch and planning meals which meant planning shopping trips. That means using a shopping list and sticking to it, no impulse buying.
I finished a pair a socks that I started last year then missed placed and just recently found again. The wool is very soft and I love the color. Over all am pleased with how they turned out. Have done little sewing and need to finish my double diamond quilt and start the quilt for DD Chinese host family. Hope to be visiting her this year some time.
