First of all I like to post the links of what I did for Carla Challenge, so one can see how thing progressed.
I took on her weekly challenges; both cleaning and finance,
Now for the cleaning type of challenges....Choose a closet, any closet, and clean it out!!
Then for the weekly Financial challenges....Give. Find a way in your budget to "give" financially somehow.
We have five closet in our home, if I count it right. I decided to just tackle the shelf I keep my gardening, cookbook and other reference books. As you can see it a mess.
So I pulled out all the books and divide them into three piles; cookbook, gardening and other reference books. This a picture of my reference books. I decided to take 60% of them to one local thrift store.
Statement....If I have to say one thing that benefit me from doing home care...”I surely don't have any desire to be come a hoarder to any degree”. I seen so many client who live in what I call cracker box and surround with “broken belongings”
I organize the books left to right...gardening books, cooking and other reference like books. Hubby gave me a compliment on nice it looked.
Now for the giving. For Martian Luther King the local school here does a service project. They park a bus each one of our local grocery store; three of them and try to load up each of the bus with food which is donated to our local food bank.
So today I grab some one dollar bills and stuck it in the money jar.
Anther thing I did took dollar bill and tape it to an item in the store. So who every picks up the item will receive a dollar.
One could look at as a coupon for a discount.
I believe it was 2 years ago, every week I would put an ten dollar bill in an envelope and send to a random address; locally.
Now for brief update on living like someone who lives on snap program...I spend $61.15 on food. So for the rest of the month we have $184.29. Now the daily for allowance would be $18.42.
I finish cleaning and organizing the coffee table and the two end tables. Next week I'll post a picture of the last table.
Now if any one like to see what other did for January-Challenge
.Carla of “My-Half-Dozen-Daily” is the place to go.
Coffee is on
