My Goals for this Week 10/12/15- No Eating Out!

My mail goal is no eating out this week-Vickie's Kitchen and Garden
My main goal this week will be no eating out!  

I've accepted the Frugality challenge this past week at Femme Frugality.   The main challenge I'm doing this week is to go without eating out.   Since we have been babysitting the beautiful granddaughter I just felt like I was entitled somehow to a dinner out. Even though we get a deal with coupons we were still spending money we could have saved.  Christmas is coming soon!  

Don't worry though I'm not going to overwork myself on busy days I'm going to depend on freezer meals and t.v. dinners  that I made up.


I'll try to do other small things she has listed also.   I let you know how it's going next week.  


Feel free to join in!  




Here is what I managed to get accomplished this past week:




Write a book review.

Write another guest post- working on this now!  I'm pretty much done and need to let my smart daughter Eva proofread it.   She always talks about my run on sentences!  

Start Cleaning Up the Garden.  I'll be taking down the bean poles and pulling up the tomato cages.

Make up spice mixes that are getting low.  Cooler weather has brought my cooking indoors.   I need to make up chili seasoning next week. I made taco seasoning last week.

Start cleaning and sorting the pantry.

Exercise in some form -yoga or walking as much as possible. I walked the beautiful grand baby in her stroller every day I had her.  I'm not going to set a number I think just make sure I exercise as much as my schedule will allow.   

Earn at least 15 Swagbucks a day.  Since I've been doing this I've earned four $5.00 gift cards!  Many times I just earn this by searching.

Here is what I hope to accomplish this week:

Office Work

Write a book review.

Kitchen and Garden Work:

A week without eating out.   Even though we always get a good deal when eating out I would love to see if we could go a full week with out it.  Since we been busy babysitting beautiful granddaughter I seem to need want a day without being in the kitchen. 

Start Cleaning Up the Garden.  I'll be pulling up the tomato cages and stacking them today.  Why today?   It's going to be 20 degrees cooler tomorrow!   

Finish daughter's flower garden.

Make up spice mixes that are getting low.  Cooler weather has brought my cooking indoors.   I need to make up chili seasoning next week. 

Start cleaning and sorting the pantry.
