Forgive me people, for I have spent. This last week has been much better than the first week. I did end up buying some pajamas for the kids, but only because they were 40% off plus an additional 15% and they outgrew all their other pajamas. I could have tried to find some at the local thrift stores, but previous experience has shown that there are never any pajamas available in the size and/or style I'm looking for.
What else? Emma needed a backpack and lunch container for Kindergarten, so that was bought. We also went out to some local coffee shops for coffee and to lunch twice (local establishments) while we were working from home. Which means we have to be away from the house since the kids are home. So, buying coffee to get free WiFi is kinda part of the deal for not commuting all the way downtown on those days. I sort of figure that's a wash. The library is only open a few hours on those days, but as soon as it opens we take full advantage of it.
The only other non-essential thing I bought was a bottle of wine for my cast party last Monday. But, it's Washington Wine Month, so I bought (well, I always do) a local wine to bring. More info on the cast party and green makeover show to come, so stay tuned. Yes, I got the part! The show will be total hoot and I'm very excited to make this show as educational and entertaining as possible.
Anyway, I am definitely paying more attention to what I buy and don't buy because of the challenge. Unfortunately, that doesn't mean that the hubs isn't taking up the slack on purchases, but there's only so much I can do about that one.
Sooo... how was your week?
