Hoping for a NSD today

July 19th, 2012 at 06:10 am

Yesterday I got gas for the Bug ($25) and spent $16 at the Farmers Market. I bought an onion, three big tomatoes, a bunch of grape tomatoes, a pint of blueberries, kettle corn, and a bunch of pretty flowers. Yeah, the flowers and kettle corn were completely unnecessary. But worth it!

I was feeling pretty confident--in fact I was thinking that if I do this again, I should give myself less money to make it more of a challenge. Then I realized I'm going to need to get gas at least one more time and I have 12 more days to go. I have lots of food in the house, but I'm always going to need to buy more milk and fresh fruits and veggies. I was even thinking that I had enough money for some Chinese takeout on Friday. Now, maybe not. Better save my money, just in case!

Day 18 Numbers:

Spend: $41
Left: $91
In: found 2 pennies

    Our trick for Chinese take-out is to make noodles or rice at home. The trick to fried rice is it must be cold, so make it the day before. It's also a terrific way to use up any bits of limp veggies in the fridge.

    If you go for Soba [dry] noodles, they just get soaked in boiling water and likewise add any chopped/Julianned veggies at hand.
