    Have been using the clothesline for almost all laundry for about 6 weeks now, and hanging inside when it's been too rainy. DD uses the dryer for some things, but hangs much in the house - her preference. Our furnace has only run on one day since mid-April. Finally got our stimulus check today, so that will go into the house fixing fund. And I've spent $16 in gas this month, and less than $10 last month - which is a far cry from the $175. average per month when I was working!

    I went to an adjoining state where malls have opened for some much needed clothing basics with a goal to not exceed $250.00 but only spent $66.50 and remain on track for my monthly budget.

    I love the little moral victories! Little things definitely add up. Congrats!
