Weekly Money Checkup

Weekly Money Check-Up is a weekly series on My Pretty Pennies.
 1. The most I’ve spent this last week was probably on gas for the car, or maybe groceries. A pretty boring week!
  2. Today I am thankful for an amazing, relaxing weekend. That hasn't been happening enough lately!

3. Money can’t buy happiness. One free thing I did last week that made me happy was hang out with friends, grilling at their house and playing board games. We brought a box of chocolates from the pantry, which I'd purchased with a gift card, so it was a free contribution!

4. I will consider this week a success if I accomplish most of the following:
  • Yoga three times at home
  • Arrange for siding on house to be fixed
  • Catch up at work
  • Cross one more closet off my decluttering list
  • Survive my first burlesque class
  • Cook a new recipe
  • Read two books
  • Snuggle with the kitty!
5. I am trying to incorporate less added sugar in my diet. It's really hard! And it's hidden in all sorts of foods, besides the obvious cookies, soda, and sweets - it's in canned and bottled sauces, fat-free products, condiments, even chips and crackers. Really, the only solution is to make as much of your own food from scratch as possible, which of course takes time. I'm trying, though!



  1. Playing board games is the best! Such a wonderful way to spend time with friends and family. I'm just stopping by from My Pretty Pennies.

    (Lovely blog design, btw. I have the same one!)
