30 Days Of Nothing–Day 29

When we began this 30 Days Of Nothing experiment, we knew we wanted to save enough money to make a difference for someone.  Though I wasn’t willing to be an utter fanatic about it, I did want to make a good attempt at saving a fair bit of money.  It has been amazing to me to see this […]

30 Days of Nothing-Day 28

Well, my hubby helped me make up my mind about my haircut.  First thing out of his mouth when he saw it was, “Wow, you look young!”  What better thing could a 39 year old hear?  So, yeah, I like it. And him.  Meals Breakfast was peanut butter toast and OJ.  I must have the […]

Day 23/ 30 Days of Nothing

(Don’t miss the Blogging Chicks Carnival!)  Quiet day today. Hubby and 3 of the big kids went up to the mountains to gather one last load of firewood. Funny how it can feel quiet with ‘only’ 5 around.  No shopping today. Along with many other things, we are getting low on butter and cheese, but we […]

30 Days of Nothing–Day 17

This evening I had a couple minutes of down time, waiting for my kids to get out of youth group.  I grabbed my checkbook, thinking I’d enter recent checks into the register. Short task–two in the past week.  Curious, I counted.  I’ve written six checks so far in September.  Six checks in 17 days.  More […]

30 Days Of Nothing

I read an amazing blog post on Intent  – 30 Days of Nothing.  Go read it if you haven’t yet.  Her experiment appeals to me, partly because of my time in Ethiopia.  While there, I was humbled by the poverty I saw.   One of the most indelible images in my mind was of Flip Flop Girl.  […]

Never has a month lasted so long.  Well, excepting the months I’ve spent waiting for my children to arrive- which, come to think of it, has comprised a sizeable portion of my adult life.  So, maybe a rephrase is in order:  this month has really dragged.  (There, that’s better.)  This morning at breakfast we were […]

(Update below) I’m going to be savoring these last few weeks of summer, but I did want to mention something I’m planning for September. I’ve been looking at the budget lately, and between rising food prices and recent medical bills, frankly, it would be really nice to find a little extra cash somewhere. Two years […]

30 Days- The End

We’ve done it.   We made it through 30 Days.  I’ve already been to the store.  Already rejoiced over the addition of coffee creamer back into my coffee, butter back into my fridge.   My freezer is restocked with meat.  My pantry again bulges with all sorts of nice little non-essentials like paper napkins and pancake syrup and taco […]

15 Days of…well, not nothing

Today we canned like maniacs (39 quarts of tomatoes and 15 quarts of apples). I ran out of canning lids again, and so hubby went to the store to buy them.  It seems my hubby is a little less –um– invested in the whole ’30 Days of Nothing’ thing than I am.  He came back from […]

30 Days– day one

It’s September.  30 Days of Nothing starts today. If you’ve read my blog since the beginning, you’ve read my past posts wrestling with the issues of money, possessions, and the less fortunate. I hope people won’t misunderstand my heart. As I write this month, I will be doing so not to ‘guilt’ or impress or legislate anyone, or […]
