One week down, and 51 more to go...Hubby and I are trying to go the whole year without spending any money on extra things... we are going to try to stick to a budget...no shopping(the kids will still get birthday presents and clothes when needed) other than necessities. We are putting money in a vacation fund, Christmas account, and regular savings, and extra will go to paying down bills. Because in reality, we really don't "need" anything, most things are just wants. I figure if we have the will power to lose weight, then we have the will power to do this. So one week in and we are doing good.
And with this new year and new budget, I am going to reexamine things I already have in the house. Weed out the crap and showcase the things I really love.
I've been cleaning the kitchen and mudroom all day and when I finally got to the point where I could adjust the decor, I started with the kitchen window area. I was looking at this tiered wire basket stand and realized that I had two white porcelain chamber pots in it. One holding a plant and the other holding dish scrubbers. Then it hit me.... why wasn't my third chamber pot on the top? I love these chamber pots(yes, my family thinks it is gross and weird to own these, but I like them) but I have never found the right spot to put them all... until now. It took a bit of finagling to fit that top one in, but it's there now and is holding the dish cloths.
Have a lovely day,
