Food Budget Challenge Update!

  Last week’s self-imposed Food Budget Challenge forced me to take a look at my spending habits in the kitchen, and come up with creative ways to use it up, make it do, or do without. I realized I was in a pretty good position to spend a fraction of the $300 allotted in my budget this month. And I had to come to grips with my biggest food habit.     Coffee. Because this is not a starvation food challenge (and I count doing without coffee as starving, Cronies),…

January Food Budget Challenge!

How low can you go? On your food budget, that is!  I created my January budget over the weekend, and realized some numbers needed to change. My food budget is pretty big at $300 for one full-time person and one part-time person (Bill Spaid spends part of his month here). I don’t drink wine or beer, but I really love coffee. Good coffee. So the beans are “spendy.” Sometimes I’ll mix my first choice of coffee beans with less expensive beans, but it is an item that is on my list every…

If it is bored and has nothing to do, it could get into trouble. You must keep it busy by…

Hello, goodbye! One year ends and a new year begins.

  Here it is again – the end. And the beginning!     The new year brings a sense of closure, while welcoming in new adventures. I hear dialogue around me when I am out running errands: “I’m so glad 2016 is over.” “I hope 2017 is better than 2016.” “This year was awful. I can’t take another year like that.”     What? It sounds as though nothing went right in 2016. By focusing on the “bad” parts of 2016, the whole year becomes a big boiling pot of…

Gratitude: Is it good for them – or you?

Gratitude is good for you. Yep. That statement almost makes it seem selfish, doesn’t it? Here’s the thing: Gratitude is selfish and selfless at the same time. People who take time for themselves to reflect on the events, people, or things they appreciate actually reduce stress hormones and could reduce the effects of aging. Which means you can have a good time and remember it longer.   Others benefit from gratitude, too. Well,it stands to reason that if you are having a good time and remembering it, others will have a…
