I way, WAY overspent in January, so February has to be as close to a no-spend month as possible.

I need to stay away from The Tasty Gates of Hell drive-through this month. I also need to quit cruising Amazon.com.

My fridge, freezer and cupboards are full of food, so I think I can go most of the month without grocery shopping, too.

I’m a little worried about the low level of cheese in the house. I only have 2 partial blocks, and you know I love cheeses.

Oh, I guess there’s the sliced provolone for sandwiches.

Yup. I’m still worried.

I can distract myself from the upcoming Crisis of Cheeses by working on making some things beautiful.

I added another print to the bedroom grouping (Goodwill, $2.99) and hung a mirror on the opposite side of the bed (Amazon, $149.90).

I also spent an hour in the studio, unpacking and finding homes for some of the stuff from my storage locker. Progress was made, but I definitely need to keep at it. And I definitely need to find a bookcase to house the books I unpacked. Next month.
