May 6th, 2008 at 11:40 pm

We're having homemade lasagne. Im adding some lentils and frozen mixed veg to the lasagne to bulk it out. Im also going to use a bit of the mince and make a shepherds pie out of it... theres dinner for the next couple of nights..yummo!

its payday.

May 6th, 2008 at 09:25 pm

It's payday, so I will be able to write my budget tonight, its the same nearly every payday, but i like to have it all written out clearly so I know how much money I have for each category.

I paid my rent today already, so thats one less job to do this fortnight.

I'll be focusing on spending as little as possible on anything for the fortnight and see how I go.

My day

May 6th, 2008 at 04:37 pm

I have no work on today, yay! So I need to hav a rest, mite go out for lunch with my boyfriend, and have to go and pay some rent..

Otherwise I'll be home decluttering some paperwork, doing some knitting and having a rest.

What are you all up to today?


May 6th, 2008 at 04:29 pm

I got a $30 cheque from Emailcash a week or two ago which I haven't banked yet as I'm not sure what I'm going to do with it yet.

I'll orobably just put it in savings. Boring I know, but good all the same as there's nothing I really need to buy other than another pair of navy tights for my DD for school.

May 4th, 2008 at 06:34 pm

Just went and spent most of my May budget for groceries, but have enuff food in my house now to sink a battleship and shouldnt need to go near a supermarket now except to get some bread wen i run out.. and mite see if i can get my bf to bring some over one day wen he comes to visit later in the month.

so today spent $69 at Coles (got a few treats for the month including some mint choc chip ice cream, 2x 250g blocks of Belguin Chocolate for $4, some corn chips and nachos topping and cheese and sour cream for nachos for dinner one night)

the rest was some staples, pasta sauces and mixed veg, some tins of stuff for meals, vegemite

spent $30 at Aldi, got 2 milk powders, some sausages, potato chips, corn flakes, some little pies for a treat for my DD, some pasta, eggs

So today I spent $69 at Coles and $30 at Aldi, total $99.

$99 + $13 = 112

left for month $18

Mite start entering my menu plan on my blog.. though tonight I'll be having dinner at work, as I havent yet got enough food cooked to take with me.

My grocery aim for May..

May 2nd, 2008 at 03:02 pm

My monthly spending amount on groceries for May is $130 for the month. I will try and mostly eat out of the pantry/freezer this month, only buying what I absolutely need, and some fresh fruit n veg.

It is the 3rd of May already and I don't yet NEED to buy anything, nor have I yet bought anything for the month. I will make sandwiches for my DD's school lunches and put them in the freezer today while I still have bread.

Will need to go and buy some fruit and probly bread either tomorrow or Monday.

Tomorrow night's tea will be meatballs, with mixed veg, rice and BBQ sauce. Tonight we will probly have sausages and veg/salad.

welcome to my world of clutter

May 1st, 2008 at 06:55 pm

I have been steadily decluttering for about 3 months now, and although I have given to friends and charity, thrown stuff away etc, I still have way too much junk/clutter in my house.. You should see my spare room! It is filled with boxes and bags of stuff. I don't even know what half of it is. And there are other parts of my house that have papers and stuff just sitting around too.

I would like to be able to enjoy sitting at home and relaxing, knowing my house is tidy and I have a place for everything and everything in its place. So every day I will do a 15 minute declutter/tidy, can be either clutter or general cleaning to stop other clutter from building up.

My first step in my decluttering journey

May 1st, 2008 at 05:41 pm

Hi there.

Im hoping to record my journey to declutter, tidy and simplify my life. hope you can join me on my journey.

I live in Australia in the State of Victoria, and have a daughter.
