If French bread is wrong, I donâ€™t want to be right.
Curses to every trendy diet that made me afraid of white bread. So glad I kicked that completely irrational food issue to the curb. Iâ€™m not suggested you eat it every day (nutritionally, whole wheat is superior), but DANG â€“ fluffy white bread is a yummy, special treat!
Leaning tower of nom nomâ€™s:
I had a â€œplatter lunch,â€ which I havenâ€™t done in a while. Itâ€™s fun to make a platter and prepare your food as you go:
I smeared a lovely bean and cheese dip on the French bread. I made the dip by combining spicy cheddar cheese and dark red kidney beans.
My mouth is on FIRE!
And earlier, I had a Oh She Glows bar. My lunch was kind of late.
Responsible Spending Challenge: At the Store
Iâ€™ve been collecting coupons over the last week for my big trip to the grocery store. Iâ€™ve been clipping them from the paper, magazines, and printing them offline. I also had a few old coupons sent to me by companies for the blog.
I saved over $30 at the store in coupons! How awesome is that? And, I didnâ€™t buy anything I didnâ€™t already want to buy, which I think it is the key to saving money with coupons (not accidentally spending more).
Also, I bought my mom her Christmas present this morning, and I saved $10 by Googling the store name + â€œcoupon code.â€ Cha-ching!
So far, the Responsible Spending Challenge is going really well! Weâ€™ve had some unanticipated expenses in the last week, but we also managed to spend almost NO money this weekend, which is a major accomplishment in my book. Most importantly, I feel in control of my financesâ€¦ which I havenâ€™t been able to say in a while. And thatâ€™s priceless!
