Dr. Appointment

October 23rd, 2006 at 03:39 am

Today I have a chiropractor appointment. We live in the boonies so the drive to the doctor's office is 1 hour each way. So normally I would stop at Hardee's after I got to town and get me a platter of pancakes, milk and hashrounds for around $4.00 and then after I got done I would usually stop at Wendys for a value meal.
Sooooo this morning I ate breakfast at home so that is a savings of $4.00 added to my challenge account.

previous total $22.00
so far today $4.00
accum total $26.00

hanging laundry and mending clothes

October 21st, 2006 at 11:04 am

It is a beautiful day here today so 2 loads of laundry is hanging on the clothesline. I figure I save at least $1.00 per load by not using the energy hog, I mean clothes dryer!

I also patched 2 pair of my sons bluejeans the knees were wore out of them, but other than that there was nothing wrong with them. Their cousin gave them some old bluejeans that were too small to fit any of our boys so I cut 2 patches out of them and used that to patch up my sons jeans. They look pretty darn good too! So -- 2 pair of jeans for him cost around $10.00 each at walmart so I saved $20.00 by patching his old jeans.

previous total $0.00
today $22.00
new total $22.00
