My $5 Pantry Building Challenge: Week #3

Last week I had $.41 left from my pantry building allotment.  I rolled it over into this week's which gave me $5.41 to spend.

As mentioned in this post, our local Sam's Club is closing and they have reduced everything in price.  We popped in there on Tuesday because I needed some salt and thought we would try there to see if they still had any.  At that point, it would have been 25% off.

They still had some so I purchased 4 boxes ...


The regular price for each was $1.46 which brought the total before taxes to $5.84. After the 25% was taken off the total was $4.36 before taxes.  Total with taxes was $4.45.  This left me $.96 to roll over into next weeks allotment.

I'll empty the salt into jars and vaccum seal them to help keep the salt fresh longer.

What about you, how did you do with your $5 pantry building challenge this week?

Financial Preparedness: Week #3

This week has been all about the nitty gritty, hard work, doing without, sacrificing so you can take what you don’t spend and meet your financial goal for the month.

I’ve continued sewing pillow cases for future selling …

I’ve continued working on earning Swagbucks, trying to earn an Amazon gift card

We’ve saved our change this week …

We were blessed with a monetary gift so we added over half of it to our savings …

We continue to ask God’s blessings on this endeavor …

I continue to journal this journey in my journal ...

But mostly we’ve purposefully and intentionally not spent any more money than what had to be spent and it has paid off … we’re getting close to reaching our goal of funding 10% of our emergency fund by the end of the month! 

How are you doing on your January financial goal?

My 100 Day Sewing Challenge # 23

I was able to sew for 4 days this past week for at least 15 minutes each day.   Hoot!   Hoot!

These 4 days plus the 59 I've already completed puts me at 63 days!!! 

Here's what I stitched up ...




two more pillowcases ... 


and clue #3 in the mystery quilt I'm doing.  (Clue #4, here I come!!!)

See those little red clips holding the finished 'clues' together?  Those are the handiest little things for this kind of sewing!

Not shown is a diaper bag I'm working on for the little twin girl that spent Christmas with us.  I promised her diapers, and an outfit and diaper bag for her baby doll that she got for Christmas.  She asks me every time she sees me if I have them done yet.  I give her a progress report and she is happy!

What have you stitched up this week?
