I want to remember the activities that fulfill my interest in frugal, waste-free, and simple-life style this week; I am positive that they will help me see the brighter side in everything and motivate me to do more 🙂
Here is the list:
1. I messed up with my budget and frugal life-style big time lately. Nevertheless, I managed to walk to work one day (rather than using transportation) saving myself 10 bucks.
2. I did not over-spend on grocery. As a matter of fact, I have purchased much less than regular in order to eat what I already have in my fridge.
3. I used a coupon. Now, considering I am wasting more than 200 bucks a week nowadays I wonder why I have even cared finding or using this coupon. Every penny counts I guess…
1. I continued to bring my tote to stores in order to reduce the amount of plastic shopping bags in my home. There has been a considerable improvement in this and I am happy to say that I reduced the amount at least by 2/3 🙂
2. I ate the food in my fridge before they went bad. Some of them still did, though, which I resent…. Next time I will be better.
1. I baked my own bread.
2. I made my own strained curds/cheese from kefir 🙂 I am straining another batch today. I want to try one from yogurt for a change of taste.
3. I did not unnecessarily made my day complicated by filling it in many different activities (only work).
4. I made sure to do other things than just work after 7pm everyday to give my mind a break and enjoy my life.
5. I did not socialize with anyone, which helped me keep my time and energy to myself (yes, this is one of the benefits of living alone 🙂 )
6. I cared for my yard and removed weeds to make sure they will not take over the yard (a preventive measure for a long-term simple life)
Decluttering and minimalist activities:
1. Nothing particular than regular, except that the unnecessary paper that were on my study table are now dumped.
2. I bought no item (other than personal hygiene products and grocery) for home or myself this week.
