So, as some of you may have read and watched, we are implementing the "cash envelope" system in our home.
Basically, this means that we use cash for all our purchases including; groceries, gas, entertainment, food out and daily miscellaneous. I have wanted to do this for quite some time, but frankly, was too lazy and too convinced it would not really help!
I WAS WRONG!!
More on that later!
However, today was my first trip to the Grocery store with only cash in hand. I brought my weekly allotted budget in cash and that was all I had!
HIP HIP HOORAY!!! I spent below my budget again and left with $10 in my pocket! I am sure that $10 will get put to use for things we may run out of during the week or things I may have forgotten, but I was thrilled I did not come up negatory!!!!
This week's meal plan is simple and shorter as one night we do left overs and two nights this week we will be out.
Here is what I came up with!!
*Pumpkin Pancakes with Cinnamon Syrup
*Cheeseburger Sliders and Homemade Fries
*Goulash, Garlic Toast and Salad
*Chicken in a Biscuit (I did not end up making this last week, so I still had the ingredients!)
* Left Overs
*Dinner out X2
*Peanut Butter and Jelly
*Mac and Cheese
*Ham or Turkey and Cheese sandwich
Chips, apples, bananas,
Peace and Blessings
A few weeks ago, I saw this ad for Funfitfab boxes on Facebook! I already subscribe to Ipsy and get a little cosmetic bag full of goodies delivered to my door once a month! I LOVE IT! For only $10 I receive a cute make up bag with sample size products including; eye shadows, blush, lip gloss/stick, mascara, eyeliner, nail polish, hair products, skin care products and more! The samples last me for quite some time and I have found a lot of new products that I love and probably would never have known about otherwise! And $10 is an excellent price as one bottle of the nail polish alone is probably close to that!
So... when I saw Funfitfab posted I was super excited! I LOVE getting fun stuff in the mail. Then send out a new box four times a year for each season. They boxes contain over $200 worth of items you get delivered to your door for $49.99. Your first box is $39.99 and you can cancel anytime if you don't want to receive the next box, though, I think you will really want to!
Our Anniversary is right around the corner, ergo, I told my husband this would be my gift!! And it would be the gift that keeps giving the WHOLE year!! It's great fun for me to get a present 4 times in a year and it relieves him of the agony of trying to come up with the perfect gift!!
I got my first box today and I LOVE IT!! Rather than take a zillion pictures of each item, I stepped WAAAAAAY out of my comfort zone and made a video! This way you can see all the items with explanation! I promised my blog would be authentic, so, as today was a lazy day and I was looking rather lazy, I did not altar my appearance in the slightest! I am Au NatUral!!!
Peace and Blessings
