So, here's what's up on this somewhat rainy, somewhat sunny Saturday!
Take the kids to the library.Done, although Nick forgot the overdue book at school, & now I owe $2.75. If I check out the boys books on my account, I get fined if they are overdue. However, our library doesn't actually charge late fees on the kids accounts. Must remember this for next time. Roughly estimate our taxes.Again, SUPER rough, as I just use our tax percentage from last year & try to back into the numbers. But, this is done! I have us budgeted to owe another $20K, just to be safe, but I think it will be significantly less. *fingers crossed*. By doing this, I can now have a better sense of our bonus money allocation for the year. Hit the produce stand.Done. I got radishes, romaine, cucumber, & whole wheat lavosh bread (M uses it every morning for breakfast).
- 45 minutes of cardio.
- Take Nick to his soccer game.
Pack for my trip.90% of the way there. The rest needs to be packed tomorrow. Reply to a couple of urgent emails from our VP.Done. Always a treat on a Saturday morning. ;-) Plan next week, send schedule to M & our nanny. Drop off leftover sleepover items at Nick's friend's house.He somehow forgot to do this all week.
- Make homemade pizza. Dough is made, just the rollout/topping part remains.
Make Costco list. Go to the grocery store to use a $5 off of a $25 purchase coupon.Found some huge deals, including 2lb bags of pasta for $2. It's very rare to find a pound of pasta for under $1 these days, and my boys eat *a lot* of pasta. I also had one $1 off the pasta coupon, and found closeout tahini for $6.99 to round out my order. Also had to pick up jello for a school project. All told, I saved 40% on my order, which was pretty great. We rarely go to the grocery store (just Costco & the produce stand), but the occasional stop can pay off.
And, that's it! I hope you are all having an outstanding weekend. What are you trying to accomplish today?
