Back when I was blogging more regularly, before I had an unsuccessful attempt at transferring my data from the old Real Simple Finances to the new web host, I used to do a weekly wrap-up and summarize what I did last week. While learning from the past is always a good idea, I want to spend 2015 looking forward each week.
This week the semester starts at one of the three schools I am teaching at. I am always slightly nervous before each semester, because every class has a different set of personalities. I am also starting a new bi-weekly class for middle and early high school-aged homeschooled students this week. This should keep me very busy throughout the semester!
Looking forward for these topics: next week will bring a blog post on morning routines and starting a successful side hustle as a tutor.
I went grocery shopping yesterday, and scored an excellent deal on whole wheat pasta — .59 cents per box! Whole wheat pasta is rarely as cheap as the normal white variety, so this was a great deal. I got 36 boxes, enough to last the two of us through this entire year (and then some!) for $21.24. I estimate that this will break down to .30 cents per meal.
Looking forward on this topic: next week I will talk about how I am reorganizing and restocking my pantry, inspired by Femme Frugality’s post on Shelf Scouter, while changing my diet around for the better!
Finally, my goal this week is for peacefulness. Easing into a new semester is not always … well, easy. I want to organize my mornings so that my days can be peaceful and stress-free.
Have a wonderful week!
