Oh my heavens. What a week we had last week. Not a very frugal one at all! And busy, busy.
So when I looked over my goals list for the week, I was surprised to realize that I’d done better with the baby steps I had planned for the week than I first realized! I’m glad that I was able to make the most of down time between doctor appointments and craziness.
I was only able to do that because I had a plan in place. But I also realize that the plan has to wiggle at the pace of real life. So if I don’t make every goal on my list, I’m totally ok with that. Just as long as I can see some movement towards our bigger yearly goals.
Here’s how we did last week:
- Choose a new bathroom sink (Haven’t found anything great so far, still shopping!)
- Paint baseboards in living room
