Welcome to my month review using uniquement les numéros. And random french words apparently.
0- trips to Walmart. Because I despise that place. Instead, I have ordered anything I needed on Amazon. Purchased: Ninja coffee maker, printer ink and a veggie spiraller. Actually on that note, I have Willis and Lucia take turns planning our fancy Sunday family meal. I set out a couple cookbooks, they leaf through and pick out a main, a salad and a starch. Oh, and dessert. What fun we have had. That's where the spiraller comes in- I made zoodles to go with the pasta sauce Lucia requested and it was a huge hit with the kids.
1041$ on groceries. Dammit. I thought I was doing super good. Must improve for February. How am I possibly spending that much on groceries when we're also spending 450$ on restaurants. GEEEEEZ.
925$ on clothing for me. Shite. I bought a sweater at Lululemon, 1 hobo wallet, a pair of jeans, a Vince top & a pair of Sorels.
I bought 1 book for 10.49$. Nope, I lied, I also bought the Little Paris BookShop for 25$. I have now requested a bunch a books on Overdrive but I'm so not patient. Did I mention we're running a virtual book and have 30 some ladies signed up from all over Canada and the US? We have super laid back chats and don't have to leave the house. Or put on a bra for that matter. You should join too (here).
0$ on makeup! Yay! I don't see any big makeup purchases coming in February either, just possibly moisturizer. Because winter makes my face chip off but also because I had laser eye surgery this past weekend and won't be wearing any makeup for a bit.
225$ on gas. Not bad! Big improvement since we got rid of the truck and switched to le Mazda.
I made 150$ on the blog in january!
3 trips booked (Winnipeg, Toronto and Scotland)...can't wait to see people in places!
1 Brunch date with my besties- this is a tradition I hope to continue- it was nice to sneak away from the family in the morning and start the day with coffee and girl talk.
3 "knowledge transfers" with teacher friends- I loved giving away my binders this month!
1 great goodbye meal with my work peeps
My January goal was organization- I made 1 big list that covered each room in the house and what it needed repaired or purchased or created. I plan on attacking my house room by room like a DIY ninja until I get everything done.
The goal for Feb is Fitness and I got a running start (ha- I'm punny) on this one because....I worked out 18 days in January. Which makes me think I should have done more but nonetheless I am just happy that I did some and that I'm feeling strong.
1 track meet, which was actually a first for us. Loved watching Willis run.
3 birthdays celebrated: my mom, our Jen and the Jamison.
We made my mom a really cool present- we ordered an antique library cataloguer thingy and then Kyla made inserts so she can keep track of all her classics.
And that was January for you! Link up your numbers post!
