Hope you’ve all had a great Thursday! It was beautiful – if a bit cool – here today. Got the work thing done. Got the run in. Dinner’s done and kitchen cleaned. Coffee set for the morning. I think that I shall grab my book and read for a while.
But first I want to share a little Dave Ramsey FPU success I had. We have been doing FPU churchwide since January 26. This week was the first time I braved the grocery store with a list, a few coupons, and my cash envelope containing $100. I bought lots of fresh veggies (broccoli, 2 heads of cauliflower, potatoes, sweet potatoes, kale, spinach, and bananas), a nice roast, and lots of dairy products – cheese, cottage cheese, sour cream, half and half, milk. (Remember my Monday post of our menu for the week? My grocery list was based on that – a very specific grocery list.) Everyone got one thing they wanted for a snack.
It was SCARY standing there at the register waiting to see the end result. But (insert dramatic music), I got out of there with money left in my envelope. I spent $90.44. Whew! Now I just have to keep reminding myself that I do NOT need to go back to the store before the envelope is replenished next week.
I was just so excited that I made it out alive (I did text and ask Teresa to pray for me before I went in) that I just had to share!
So anyway, back to the book. Have a good night! Everyone stay well!
