Took DD to the stupidmarket for some fruit and good snacks to eat over the holidays, she chose what she wanted to eat and now she's already whining that she can't eat my junk food snacks that I saved, when she ate all of hers in one sitting the other day when it was hot.. tough kiddo lol

Grocery list:
3kg oranges, 2kg bananas, 1kg nectarines, 1kg apples, cheese, milk and wholemeal bread, a salad mix in a packet and a box of cruskits

Total $27

    Hi Chatterbox, nice to meet you! I have a couple teenage girls myself, they sure don't have to try hard to find something to complain about Smile

    Thanks Alice, mine also has more going on so i get a double whammy everyday. Yesterday was a doozy day. Last night i had my own meltdown.. feeling better after chatting to Dd about things and a sleep (i don't generally sleep well anyway but at least my mind isn't foggy this morning and im positive).

    And yep VS i am rrally reved up and excited to see where my no spend can take me this year.

    (I will add on my side bar about my proposed craft expo mid year venture but it will be paid for out of other savinga to my current challenges or from my survey earnings so im not going to count it as a spend.

    Welcome to SA!

    Your daughter learned a lesson...don't eat everything all at once and save a little. Kind of like money...don't spend everything you have...save a little for another time.

  7. Chatterbox Says:

    Yes Rob, we teach them that about money, but doesn't mean it sinks in..lol. Thanks for the welcome. Off to check out your blog now Smile

  8. Chatterbox Says:

    Rob, how do you put other bloggers on your favourites list please?

  9. Jessica Rupe Says:

    Rob, I love that comparison! Simple yet so obvious, but definitely one I had not considered before.

  10. Chatterbox Says:

    There's no like button on here Jessica! :P

    I think lots of life can be compared to the saving a bit for later ron (pun intended lol)
