My Day to Organize and Plan

First off, I accidentally touched some milk this morning.  I am highly allergic and just touching a drop can set off a major reaction.  My eyes are swelling so I’m going to have to take some allergy medicine.

My husband is such a sweetheart that he spent the weekend doing a lot of the chores that I do on Mondays so today I don’t have to vacuum, wash clothes, dust, or clean the bathrooms.  I am such a blessed woman.  By the way, I sat in the chair and watched TV the whole time he was working.  He insisted.

Now to my day today. 

  1.  Since I haven’t managed to go grocery shopping and won’t go until tomorrow, I am going to plan our meals for the week.  I am going to write a grocery list (I usually have a list) and STICK to it (I never stick to it).
  2. I’m going to write out the budget for the middle of the month. DH and I will go over it tonight.
  3. I’m going to pay all the middle of the month bills.  I really think I can make a big payment on the car.
  4. I’m going to plan exactly what I will buy each person for Christmas.  I am going to make a detailed list with budget and stick to it.  I want to finish Christmas shopping in November and I haven’t even started yet.

Hopefully by the end of the day I will be able to update my debt paid off  totals.



  1. Hurrah for you!! You are doing soo well indeed and extremely motivated, keep up the good work! Look forward to seeing your debt paid off total!

  2. I didn’t realize anyone could be highly allergic to milk! Wow. I am really glad that you are Okay. 🙂

    And isn’t it wonderful to have a husband such as this? Mine does that for me at times, too.

    And it is really great that you two are working so hard to keep a budget! Fantastic!

  3. How nice you have such a helpful husband! Send him over to my place sometime!

    Good luck on sticking to those budget goals, it can be tough, but so worth it!
