I used my one Starbucks a week already. And it wasn't worth. Talk about teaching me a lesson. It was good. Especially on the cold wet day that it was, but it ended up giving me a horrible headache. I guess I have decreased my coffee intake so much that the one (well, I only drank half) drink gave me a headache. So it may be time to give it up 100%. I still have other non-coffee drinks I know I will get pulled into the drive-thru for. But it will be easier to say no to the coffee.
I have not gone out to lunch yet this week. I don't plan to today either. Baby K was throwing up all night and running a fever. She seems much much better this morning, but we are going to take it easy at the house. So that only leaves tomorrow but S will be home and I am not sure I will want to take both the girls out. Especially since S has a birthday party in the afternoon. So I may just skip my one alloted lunch out this week. Not bad.
I have also made dinner every night this week. My husband travels. A lot! So it is easy for me to just order pizza or grab something and bring it home. I am too tired to make dinner when he is gone. But so far I have made dinner every night this week. I did not set a rule on this one because I knew that it will be a hard one for me to keep. So I didn't want to set myself up for failure. But knowing all the work I am doing in this challenge, I know that I will try to cut back on our dinners out. I am taking the girls out for dinner next Tuesday with friends, so I am trying to be really good about it this week.
I used a couple gift cards and I sold a couple of items that have been sitting in my house. So I would say a pretty good week thus far.
