Well $250 is going to be a lot harder than I anticipated. I managed to forget about provisioning berries for the year, and with the late spring, all the mid-June strawberries ripened in early-July. I’m looking at blueberries and raspberries coming down the line in the next few weeks and I’m wondering if I blow my budget, forgo provisioning and rely on tons of (free) wild blackberries, or somehow – somehow – manage to eek out enough money to buy berries without screwing over the challenge.
That said, because of a large strawberry purchase, this is the worst 1st Week of a No Spend Month Challenge I’ve ever had:
$3 – cookie for daughter on special field trip to University
$4 – parking on special field trip to University
(relatedly, daughter fascinated and amazed by giant Foucault pendulum in the University physics building: priceless)
$5 – 30 new-to-me cafe wear glasses sold by a friend
$71.76 – strawberries for jamming, freezing, and devouring by the pound while fresh
How’s your No Spend Month coming?
