Skippy chicken stock and Sunday Challenge Reporting

May 23, 2010

This is the clearest, possibly best round of chicken stock cooked up yet!

As I write this, I’m watching people on the water with my feet hiked up on a deck chair, squinting in the sun. Max brightness setting has nothing on the direct sunlight!  I’ve been firmly scolded that weekends are not for working.  Luckily, I did bust my butt to finish up a major project two weeks early just so I could invoice it out and claim that income for this challenge, so I can cooperate with my “orders” to rest and relax. 

The reports on the challenge for last week:

Divorcing Debt checked in via email with a balance of $347.99
Ciawy saved $215 of the intended $250 per week, brought lunch and snacks to work every day and fell to the siren call of the farmers’ market. But she bought fruit so I can’t really argue with that!
Candace of Cody and Candace saved another $124 which brings her to 57% of the goal.
The Fit Lounge committed to saving at least $1000.

Anyone else out there? @ConvertingMe? @tiredofbeingbroke?  Frugal Scholar?  Funny about Money? I know you’re working at it, and I’d love to hear about your progress!

My progress this week was incremental again: $2,179.18 [43%]

Not so incidentally: Single Ma is tearing up the Fitness part of this challenge, blogging about it every day AND experiencing all the glorious ups and downs of training.

  1. That’s beautiful stock, a true treasure. Oops–forgot I was supposed to have a goal. OK–my goal is to continue cleaning out my cluttered house. Teachers tend to let everything pile up till summer…at which point they get catatonic. Goal setting is hard under such circumstances. I am keeping track of the FOOD THAT MUST BE EATEN or discarded. Check out my yummy potato soup .

    I failed this week, but with valid reason. It was my friend’s last week at work so we decided to treat ourselves for lunch. Plus some more unnecessary expenses – http://runworkandsave.blogspot.com/2010/05/5k-challenge-update-week-2.html
    I’m looking forward to the coming week to do better though.

    @Frugal Scholar: That stock made EXCELLENT chicken soup!

    I’m a binge hoarder – I let things pile up and clean in cycles.

    @Ciawy: Here’s a better week!

  4. Mmm chicken stock!! Looks great.
