WEEK 21

May 28th, 2019 at 11:57 pm



Grocery = $64.87

Lunch out = We went out for lunch on Saturday with some friends, it cost us $41. And I gave away 4 pumpkins.

Garden = We went to a nursery and bought some small fruit trees, some other plants and garden supplies - $124.47

Week 20

May 21st, 2019 at 07:29 pm



Grocery = $132.10 – everything is getting very expensive. We bought another 25 kilo bag of rice (that was $38).
It is time to plant some more vegetables in the garden. Speaking of the garden, we just harvest all the pumpkin on the weekend and all up we produced 3 dozen, although 3 of them were small just under a kilo. At least that is something we won’t need to buy for the rest of the year. And we have extra that we can give away to some friends.

I’m finally starting to get into my routine again. I’m so much more productive when I follow a schedule. I’m doing a bit more work in the garden. I’m getting ready to plant some winter crops (kale, snow peas, peas, beetroot). Now that we got rid of the pumpkin, we need to clean up that area and finish the cementing of the border.

We eat healthier too when I’m organise. And I have more time for reading and working out.

Week 18 & 19

May 14th, 2019 at 05:19 pm



Grocery - $81.00 (wk 18) & $173.10 (wk 19). We are low on everything, when we got home from our holiday the fridge and freezer were both empty. So this weekend we stocked up on everything. We also had to get laundry products and cleaning products.

I’m still not feeling too good, when we went shopping I felt sick after a while of walking around.
