She has inspired me to start a new journal and list 1,000 things from the ordinary days of my life. Things I normally take for granted. Things I never usually notice.
Now I frequently run to my notebook to jot down more items. There are so many things when our mind is set to see them.
Yesterday I visited Kroger for my weekly grocery shopping trip. I go every Tuesday for their weekly Senior Citizen day (5% off for ages 55+).
I worked hard in advance, planning menus based on sale items, making a complete list/sticking to it, and using a handful of coupons.
Total saved: $60. I am so thankful for that!
But that's not all. Y'all probably know I have osteoarthritis. When I asked the bagger if there was any way to easily separate cold items from non-cold (so when I got home I could just carry in the cold things to be refrigerated/frozen), she happily put the cold things in plastic bags, the rest in paper. Mr. Redo and the kids brought in the other things later.
Bagging help. I'm so thankful for that!
If you haven't already read this book, it's worth the couple dollars you'll spend on Amazon.
Dear blogging friends. I'm so thankful for you!
