No Buy Feb 2015- week 3 overview

As promised at the rules and plans, we did get our green box on weds and I was thrilled to see a pound bag of carrot per box, remember we get a box per person. The apples will go to miss puddin as she needs fresh eating not just her vit water for health.

I was not quite as happy to see 4 more huge turnips but fresh is fresh..

The biggest want this week was a new dvd player, I do not have tv but I do I went our like my movies and my dvd player died this week, so I have been reading even more then normal but even I can read so much..

went with a girlfriend on Friday, she got me a coffee, so it was a gift but I still  consider it a tiny cheat but on my big day out at the equine day, I faithfully packed two sandwhiches, canned fruit, and premade jars of coffee or hot chocolate, just add water and heat, it was a very heavy snow day and the roads were very bad indeed so I was gone even longer then planned.


With the birth of a number new lambs this week, I finally have fresh milk back in the house.. well I will but this week has been about putting the good stuff away just in case. this week I will be able to start milking share programs and start bringing in enough for cooking, yogurt an cheese making soon

  1. Sounds like y’all are doing great! I do have to agree with hubby about March though. I know when we FINALLY get done with our month-long grocery no-spend challenge this week, it may be a while before I can even mention those words in this house again… LOL!
