By staying home all weekend we also saved a bit on the fuel budget. I did do the one merchandising shop last week on my errand day and drove less than 10 miles to accomplish all I needed to do. This week I have another merchandising shop scheduled to do at Wal-Mart so I’ll do that on the day I need to do my Wally World shopping so as to not spend any extra fuel with that job. Basically any more I only do 1-2 shops a week that will coincide with an errand I need to do. So it will basically pay for my fuel to do the errand.I also worked some more on my garden planning for this year, but that project is going very slow in deed. Which is not good since it is about time to start planting the cooler weather crops and the geese are still in the garden. But the guys can only do so much construction in a single weekend and the actual goose pen needs a LOT of work. I guess that work will need to be scheduled after the pantry remodel is completed and before the basement organization. LOL!
Saturday the guys finished up building the easel for ds’ work station in the office and it works great.Sunday while ds worked on his taxes dh designed my can rotators and tiered shelving for the pantry remodel I’m wanting while I started emptying the pantry—a bigger job than it sounds (blog post soon on this endeavor). He pretty well has it all designed out and will use my $60 seeded-seedless grapes Lowe’s refund gift card to purchase what few materials he will need to make it. I’m very excited about this pantry remodel and hope it all works out to what I want it to be.I learned some more of the ends and outs of Grocery Tracker and am liking this ap more and more. This too will appear as a blog post in the not so far off future.
Another thing I am really liking is the continued work on the decluttering process of the house. We all work on it for at least some part of every day and things are really starting to get organized around here.
