How was your weekend? Did you spend mindfully and in line with your values? Did you buy boring necessities? Did you buy something frivolous that you’re now kicking yourself over? (If the last, it may not be too late to return whatever you bought! Unless you already ate it.)
At the Sheep and Wool Festival, we spent…
$10 on admission
$4 on kettle corn (YUM)
$6 on other festival food
$14 on maple syrup
$a lot on honey (most of which will be turned into mead)
$36 on two hand-woven baskets, one for bathroom organization (so happy, it’s something I’ve been wanting for a while, except now I want more) and one for a Mother’s Day gift
Supporting small and local crafters and farmers are important values to us, so I’m happy with all of the purchases. In fact, the baskets were the only thing that we didn’t specifically plan to buy there.
Also, D’s mom bought a festival T-shirt for the wiggler and a fancy bottle carrier made of recycled leather for him.
I resisted many things, including comfy handmade clothing that is outside my current fun money budget, and pretty pretty antique buttons.
D later went to the grocery store and spent $52 stocking up.
On Sunday, I spent:
$124 on BRAS YAY FINALLY
The most exciting of boring necessities!
