Challenge Accepted, Aidan!
Jeff and Sue
This past week we met up with our coach, Aidan, for our monthly review. When we see her, she always asks how things are going and if we have anything important “going on” that she needs to be aware of. We told her that like last month, we felt that we weren’t doing enough so we were searching for other ways to cut our budget. We explained that we had discontinued a magazine and satellite radio subscription, but those changes were very minimal. We were not satisfied with these alone and wanted to do something more. Something that could have a bigger impact on this competition.

Redecorating without spending a dime
Emily and Ginger

The Pantry Challenge
Emily and Ginger
This week we are challenging ourselves to eat only foods that we already have in our house and skip a week of grocery shopping. We were inspired to do this when we were driving home late Sunday afternoon after visiting family out of state. We had a packed weekend full of fun and we were tired out. The last thing we wanted to do when we got home was go to the grocery store like we normally do on Sundays. We were very tempted to order some takeout, but then we thought about how much food we already have at home. Looking at the fridge and the closet can feel the same sometimes.
