Happy Boxing Day to all my Canadian friends out there. :)

Last week was a pretty low-key week for spending. We celebrated BF’s birthday on Friday night. I told him to choose a restaurant, but instead he requested a home cooked meal. So instead of spending $50-60 on a meal out, I spent less than $15 making vegetarian curry – with enough left overs for 6 more servings. :)

It was a good week for bringing in extra money. I got paid out for some freelance work, and I was able to sell a shirt on eBay. I’ve also made a pile of clothes that I plan on photographing and selling on eBay over the next few months. It likely won’t bring in a ton of money, but it’s better than nothing.

How was your week of spending?

  1. Hope you had a good Christmas – nice to celebrate a birthday as well!

  2. Happy holidays!! I just noticed the pic about matcha green tea. I have been obsessed about matcha green latte lately. The expenses are adding up as I buy from Starbucks, so I’m looking into options to make my own at home. I’m on the hunt for some good matcha green tea. Where did you buy yours?
