5 things Friday

First, my daughter’s Honda just got towed to the dealer.She is suppose to work today so not good. And it’s snowing up there, so my car wont really cut it. I guess when I go pick her up I’ll see what she wants to do.

Sescond, made my pizza dough for tonight.

Third, I was going to Kon mari 2 bins I have that hold vintage table cloths and stuff. i’ve been thru these before but maybe with new ‘eyes’ I’ll see something  to donate.

Fourth….. uhh, let’s see, the budget is a bust till payday, so that’s something.

Fifth, my gym workouts ate going well. I do feel stronger. this is week 5 so I’ll probably add some additional repetions to what I’m doing. Plus increase my cardio ( treadmill, recumbent bike) to 20 minutes. I’ve been doing 15.

‘Frugalwoods’ uber frugal challenge

So if you like reading frugal living blogs,go to Frugalwoods and read about the challenge. I’m signed up and am ready to go. Except for a couple of GC for our UPS guy and our garbage guy, we’re done with christmas stuff.  The Frugal woods are quite an amazing couple who live extremely frugally and have reached financial freedom at a young age.

It’s never too late to do new things and I do love a challenge.

In decluttering, I’m starting another round for December.  I did a half a bin Life magazines, approximately  30. I did really good just saying it has to go. My plan is to end up with 2 bins of the most notable Life magazines, Kennedy assination, MLK, pearl harbor, .  There are some notables that sold for a lot of money, marilyn Monroe, Woodstock, etc. So eventually these are for my kids to look at and see history as it was.

I’m also going to pull out the Brio bin and put it on Craigs list. I’m going to start at $400. It’s probably over a $1000 worth of Brio. I’m going to do that today or when ever I can get someone to bring it in from the barn.

It’s too cold out there to do anything right now.
