All Things Spring! April 7, 2010

I had quite the struggle this week with my budget. I’m wanting all things spring: fresh vegetables, fresh fruit, steaks on the grill, salad!, and so many other FRESH things! But my budget is $50 a week. And I have promised myself that I will stick to my budget. Obviously none of these things are super cheap right now because they are not in season yet. So I’m holding myself back!

Good news is, we are planting a garden! The husband-to-be took a whole day off work to till an area in the backyard, to which now he says is nowhere near large enough for all of the things he wants to plant! So it looks as though he’ll be using up another day to get everything situated and ready to plant! We have our seeds: cucumbers, carrots, jalapenos, pumpkins, cantaloupes, peppers, corn, spinach, watermelons, broccoli, squash, and zucchini. And we still have to get tomato plants. I can’t wait to taste all of these wonderful vegetables (and to not have to buy them at the store)! I’ve become extremely frugal. Plus knowing that my extra money goes into my savings is a pretty good teaser to not spend it all! I’m thinking of what all I can spend it on at the end of the year (like a nice new wardrobe!).
