Style Underdog has been remixing her 6 pieces? She takes such simple items, adds the perfect accesories and shoes, and voila- remixing magic. It's still warm today, but hopefully not hot, and I am trying to channel SU's awesome looks with strappy studded sandals and a long linen scarf to punch up an otherwise T-shirt and jeans combo.
I guess that's not really fashion/style related, but since I'm trying to be thrifty with my clothes spending, I hope that I don't compensate the shopping ban with buying loads of artisan ingredients, as food is our biggest expense after rent. I'm about 1 month into the GAAD, but so far, I haven't really noticed. Waves, who is also participating in the GAAD, wondered whether she'd get more interested in buying other things. Her blog and LyddieGal of Chic on the Cheap posting of the NYTimes article got me thinking about budgeting my other kinds of spending, especially food. We don't eat out often, but I usually run to the grocery store on the way home 3 times a week to pick up last minute meal ideas I have. Yesterday we sat down (after inventorying all the food in our pantry, fridge, and our CSA box) and listed all our dinners for the next 7 days, and then our shopping list consisted only of those items we needed to make those dinners (plus our snacks, breakfast, lunches). It was heavier than I expected, but it worked well. And when 7PM came around, we didn't have our usual, "What do you want to eat for dinner, honey?" circular discussions.
And our dinner was delicious.
