Monday Musings...

School started last week so I am once again home alone during the day.

 The weather is suppose to be much cooler this week.  I really really need to get some yard work done.  I do not enjoy doing yard work at all so I have to talk myself into doing it most of the time.

Currently it is about 10 am. I have a load of laundry done and hung outside on my drying racks.  I am hoping to get at least one more done today.

I need to sit down and menu plan and work on our budget.  I am not feeling to motivated to do either!  I do at least know what we will be having for dinner tonight :)

I have about 5 or 6 items I need to get listed on ebay also. My goal with my ebay sales is to make enough to buy both of our cars new tires.  It is not a need just yet but it will be soon.  That is just my first mini goal and then I hope to build on it from there.

I have been applying to some part time Nanny jobs on  So far I have not had any response to ones I am truly interested in.  I figure eventfully the right job will come along that will work for our family.  In the mean time I will just keep doing what I am doing :)

5 Things I Did That Were Frugal This Week

1. We have started back to school here. I made Kid #5's lunch this week twice. Saving us $5.00 

2. I earned 30 cents from MobiSave app and 25 cents from Checkout51 app this week. 

3. I only used my dyer for 2 loads of laundry this week. I hung out all the rest. 

4. I sold Kid #5's old lunch box for $5 on my local Facebook group

5. My husband had a pair of work pants that the hem was coming out of. I fixed them so he could continue to wear them. Saving us the cost of new pants.
