Wanna Be More Organized Wednesday

This week is my "tight" week...I overspent a little on groceries the first week, overspent a little more the 2nd week and have Thanksgiving week coming up, during which I will need extra grocery money.  All 5 of us will be home together all week! YAY!!!  I'm looking forward to lots of house cleaning, cooking, reading and family.  I'm doing pretty well this week, partly because everybody's been so busy this week that I haven't had to cook much.  Here's the run-down so far from last Wednesday's report.

Last Meek's Menu

Thursday - Basketball games - Hodge Podge*
*"Hodge Podge" is what wecall it when everybody eats just whatever they can find...I call Hodge Podge when I have leftovers for a couple of meals that don't need to be wasted, but there's not enough to feed everybody with the same leftovers.
Does that make sense?
I also call Hodge Podge when everybody is going in different directions...why the heck should I cook a meal when there won't be anyone here to eat it???

Friday - Tomato Soup - grilled cheese sandwiches

Sunday lunch - sandwiches and chips
Supper - Baked Tilapia with Tony Cachere's seasoning

Monday - Show Choir mtg - Hodge Podge again :)

Tuesday - work concessions @ high school bkball game - supper was concession stand nachos (don't judge me; we worked our hineys off)

Wednesday - Wednesday night supper @ church

I've taken care of a couple of bills this week that I really needed to deal with and didn't want to...The Head of My Household and I kept passing an old AT&T bill back and forth bc neither of us wanted to deal with it.  I ended up the lucky winner.

After 1 hour and 38 minutes and 4 human beings, I had gotten nowhere.  Essentially we turned off our phone service Oct. 2010 and they are charging us through June 2011...our word against theirs that we actually requested them to shut off our phone even though we never used the phone after October 2010.  
I hate AT&T.

I'm happy to report that I'm still on track to meet the budget this month...even though the biggest week is ahead of me.
Yay, me!


  1. Good for you! We've been doing much better eating in at my house and cooking/planning more. Keep up the good work!

    And our version of Hodge Podge is "Fend For Yourself." :)

  2. I had to laugh at the image of you and your spouse tossing that At & T bill back and forth...I've long since given up trying to get him to pitch in on the household organization stuff...
