Resolutions Journal Week 16--May 15-21

Week 16 Accomplishments:  May 15-May 21

Updated my homeschoolbuy auctions.

Sewed quilt squares and completed the top for the baby quilt I am making.

Sewed more of the fabric totes and have finished the order for 12.

Updated Our Unschooling Journal and Guns N Roses,  squidoo lenses.

Wrote my book review of Hollywood Station.

Read in my current book, Evan's Castle.

I got another quilt listed for sale in my blujay store.

Started making cross magnets that I am donating to the craft table at our church yard sale.

I have given up on the use exercise equipment regularly as one of my goals.  I'm sure you've noticed it's not been in my accomplishments for weeks now!

I didn't do well with my squidoo lenses this week.  I don't really have a reason for this since I have been in squidoo quite a lot this past week looking at others lenses.

Until next week,

My Frugal Week May 9-15

I pretty well failed this past week in trying to be frugal:

One night 2 who eat were late for supper.  By the time they got here and got done eating, my mind was no longer on supper.  It was almost midnight before I walked in to the kitchen again.....wasted: beef with gravy, mashed potatoes and peas  :(   All that could have been frozen.

I also failed at trying to save the seeds out of the orange, red and yellow peppers we had sliced for Mother's Day.  I put them into separate bags to get them laid out to dry later.  It wasn't until Friday that I wonder what was squishy in my jacket pocket.  Oh the trash they had to go!

I have still been using the second hand etc, larger bags for trashbags, but the last one of those is in the can now.  That means I do need to stop at the dollar store and buy a box of bags.  I do have $1 and some change left in my wallet after cashing a $5 refund check that came in the mail today.  The rest of it I spent to buy a few stamps.

I did my Walgreen's shopping on Mother's Day.  I'm happy with it!

One frugal thing I did this week was to use the backs of paper I had already printed, but no longer needed, when printing out things for Jasmine's 50 States Lapbook.   We aren't short on paper, but I sure can't see wasting it.

I hope to have better things to report next Monday.
