This week will be fairly ordinary for me....work, volunteering, errands, exercise, cooking, normal stuff. I'm hoping to make room in my budget to purchase some curtains for my living room. After this weekends unexpected heat wave I realized half my apartment (living room, kitchen, dining area) get direct sunlight all morning and afternoon. I want to use the ac as little as possible and the blinds are only doing so much. That window is huge though so I'm sure I'm going to have to spend a bit more than I'd like, but the savings on my electric bill will be nice. Other than that I'm still working on getting fully unpacked and organized.

Going to a singles mixer on Friday and a cultural festival with my mom on Sunday. So the week won't be all work.

Oh and as far as my makeover/wardrobe? I bought new jeans this weekend. I'd lost so much weight I had no choice and found a good deal too. If those curtains end up being a screaming deal I'll have a bit of room in the budget to get some new tops. Geez I'm swimming in everything I own lol.

Hey that's awsome on the weight loss. What did you do to lose the weight? I wanna lose 15-30 lbs by July when I go to Chicago.

Hope all goes well with the curtains. If you know how to sew and have the time you can always make them but sometimes can buy them cheaper than you can make them.

I agree that the best part is finishing them.

That's always the best part, getting it done, and its even better when it saves money as well. So what did you do around your house?
