I have let this one go for a few weeks. No great reason why but things got sort of busy when I traveled for that week and I got out of the pattern of it.
Over the last couple weeks we got a bunch of clothes at the thrift store. I got a pair of nice fleece jackets for 50 cents each.
Whatever money out of our entertainment fund we have not spent has been going toward the goal of stashing some more Euro's. At some point we will pull the difference out of the bank but at 10-20 Euro's a week over the course of the year it will be easier on the budget than just grabbing it all at once.
We got a bunch of flour as well as sugar and salt at the store plus some peanut butter and jelly.
Got a couple of interesting books at the library. One on war in European history, another on Pakistan and a third that is by Thomas Friedman, the title of which escapes me.
Really got the Grundig up and running. Will talk more about that later.
Today we saw running shoes on sale for 50% off. They happened to be Asics which are the brand I wear exclusively. They had my size so we snagged a pair. I got a new pair recently so I will not need another for probably 4 months but for a bit over $36 instead of $72 snagging my next pair was an easy decision. One of the real benefits of having a few bucks lying around is that you can take advantage of that sort of thing.
Well it has been a pretty decent couple weeks.
What have you been up to?
