The total money output was
- 80.00 Hubby side hustle snowflakes
$130 of it went to buying split and seasoned firewood in anticipation to the colder weather. We are hoping to use the wood burning stove to keep the house toasty in the fall and economize on house heating oil.
We've done exceptionally well in the eating out category. I think that preparing certain foods ahead of time during the weekend has help me fight the urge to eat out even though I'm exhausted when I get home.
Hubby's side hustle will die down quite a bit unless he gets leaf removal jobs this fall. I'm making up for that by working an extra hour during the work week as a homework club advisor. At $30 an hour, I just can't refuse it. We are now paying 25% of our health benefits so we also have to compensate for the loss of income. I've also met/surpassed my goal of achieving 10,000 steps a day this whole week except for today. I'm not feeling to well today. My Fitbit keeps me motivated!
Please know that I am sending positive vibes and prayers to all of the SA bloggers who are going through difficult times (job loss, health issues, etc.)
