Monday, Monday...

June 30th, 2008 at 11:49 am

Today our family has been frugal by...

Using the crockpot for tonight's dinner, rather than heating up the oven, which will in turn heat up the house on an already HOT summer day. We are having pot roast, carrots, and potatoes. Yum Smile

Monday is our get back on track day of the week. If we had a bad week the prior week, TODAY is the day to start fresh and try again. If that pertains to homeschooling, or finances, or cleaning, or whatever our responsibilities are- Monday is the greatest gift to mankind- because it truly does offer a new start.

I clean our bedroom on Monday. Usually this entails taking a lot of dishes to the kitchen and cleaning up our weekend mess. I also go through all my paperwork/bills that came the week prior and prepare for Thursday which is my budget day. I shred what I don't need in the paper shredder. I also log onto all of our online bill pay accounts and make sure that transfers were made and that bills were paid as scheduled.

To do List:

Return DVD's to the library
Pick up Holds while I am at the library
Drop off dentist insurance paperwork and information while I am out.
Declutter 5 items from our bedroom.
Finish going through papers on desk.
