My wallet was saved!

My wallet was saved today because we didn't go to the Converse store...haha! We're going on Wednesday instead! You know... It's really easy to save money when you stay home! I wonder how long I can keep up with this?!?

We're headed to the zoo tomorrow. I'm wondering how that will go. I'm very proud of myself for a couple of reasons. I'm a girl who likes conveniences. That's about as simple as it gets. That's why I like to eat out. It saves me a ton of time - I don't have to cook and I don't have to clean up! So...back to why I'm proud of myself. 1) Tomorrow Lisa and I decided to pack our lunch and eat out front of the zoo while we wait for the other girls to eat at Sprial Diner! This is totally out of the norm for me. I'm really happy that Lisa is doing this challenge along with me because it's definitely helping me stay on track. Her rules are more strict then mine, so it's totally helping me :) (Thanks Lisa!) 2) We're taking DART down there! It will save us on gas and parking at the zoo! I've taken DART once since I've lived here, so I'm a little nervous. We did an Alzheimers walk at the zoo, so our team took it down there. I'm just not a public transit kind of girl, but I'm trying to think of ways to save money and have fun at the same time :)


  1. Did you do the Alz walk this past November?? That's when we did it! And we took Dart there too. D LOVESSSS the train.

  2. We did it in 2007. I was on modified bed rest in Nov 08. We'll see what the girls think of the train tomorrow. They're both in that "want to get down and crawl" phase, so we'll see...

  3. Good for you! "Picnics" are always fun, who needs to waste money on other stuff?
