Fiscal Fast Day 6

I made it another day with no money spent!  Today was much easier.  I find when I stay home I am not nearly as tempted as when I am out running around.  Since it was a weekday, I stayed home with not trips to get my daughter after Pre-K.  I cleaned the place up and did laundry.

I am running low on several things.  We are out of breakfast stuff.  I searched the pantry shelves for something that we could use and I found a whole jar of Nutella (yum!)  This will certainly help to keep the kids happy for the next couple of days.

I have been able to make do with what I have much better than I expected.  I made some homemade granola bars to have with the Nutella.  I followed this recipe.  They are pretty good.  I might try some different additions next time, but I will definitely be making them again.

I have tried a few new recipes this week and that has made my family happier.  I am trying to get us out of the rut we’ve been in with food.

Only one more day.  I’m sure I can make it now.  Here’s to saving some money this week!

  1. You’ve done GREAT! I’m so impressed. I’ve had to be a bit creative too, thanks for the recipes…I’ve been utilizing them too!

    It always surprises me that we really do have enough. It only takes a week to figure it out!

    • You are sooo right. A week is both long and short depending on how you look at it! I have learned so much this week. Now before I buy something I am going to try to evaluate why I am buying. Also, I want a treat to be just that A TREAT! Not an everyday occurance without realizing it. Thank you for hosting this Fiscal Fast Week!
