Mid July Progress update!

So I’ve been working on the lofty year long goal for a fortnight now. I am tackling our pantry and deep freezer. Particularly since I’m not currently loving the Flybuys offers for bonus points, always a good time to take a break (I really do need to make a post explaining my process there!) Some payments have come in and unfortunately some bills have gone out leaving me in a fairly stagnant area at the moment.

– I need to get my butt into gear and list some more things for sale online.
– I had an awesome purchase on strawberries and pineapples at my local fruit shop which means a frugal treat in the form of delicious strawberries and cream, strawberry syrup, and if I get around to it possibly strawberry ice cream 😀
– I’ve been doing pretty well at earning almost $10/day through surveys
– We’ve begun collecting more scrap metal as well as pulling apart old appliances to remove the plastic… I tell you if you ever want to feel how much of an over-consumer you’ve been – going through less than 10 years of accrued appliances will do help it – I spent the time meditating on why had I even bought the junk appliances in the first place!

I do feel we are in the process of setting ourselves up for success though. I am motivated by this goal and my husband is plodding along once again skeptical we will see success in my timeline (his skepticism helps motivate me more though 😉 )

How are your goals tracking currently?
