Item #74: I was very tempted to use a credit card this afternoon ... just needed about 8 things from the grocery store -- 2 things to make dinner tonight, 1 thing to add to what I already have for dinner tomorrow, a salad mix (always good to have on hand), and 4 things that would round out supplies we have on hand to make more stuff for Cookie Day ... but I did not. I scraped together all the change I had, plus a few crumpled singles I'd tucked away, and managed to get all of it with the cash I had on hand. I am ridiculous proud of me. We'll get more cash into our accounts tomorrow & Monday, respectively, but I needed the stuff NOW.
Item #80: I thought of a couple people for whom I wanted to make soap as little Christmas gifts, and suddenly, *poof!* I've used up all of our soapmaking supplies! Cross one more off our list! Now, does anyone want some soap molds, dyes, and scents? All you have to do is add your own soap. *grin*
