Summer Budget Challenge

WHEN: June 2, 2008 - August 30, 2008
AMOUNT: $120 per week
  • Groceries = $40
  • Meat - $10
  • Dairy & Juice - $10
  • Fruit & Vegetables - $10
  • Dry & Canned Goods - $7
  • Soda - $3
  • Gasoline = $25
  • Household Items = $15
  • Thrift Stores = $10
  • Lunch Money = $10
  • Wiggle Room = $20
Why am I doing this? I want to challenge myself to practice cheerful frugality. I want to know that I can live on much, much less if that is required of me. I want to remove myself from the running around rat-race and enjoy my home. I want to have mommy-daughter moments as we bake and cook together. I want to thank my Lord and Savior for all He has given to me by being a wise steward of my earthly possessions.

God Bless,

I love your way of thinking, Erin.
Checked out your blog after seeing
that you bought an HQ16. Enjoyed
reading your comments and seeing
pictures of your renovation. What
a great job. It's refreshing to read that you desire a frugal,
simple life enjoying your family
and your home. Best of all was reading of your love for Jesus.
Enjoy September with more time to
sew and quilt.

Thank you, Judy. The house project was HUGE and we are really looking forward to taking a breather. We live much closer to our church and it's been wonderful having people over for meals. I plan on doing alot of quilting this fall, so make sure you check my blog regularly. =)
