Updates on a couple of past posts..........

the stinky towel issue, didn't resolve itself.  They are not as bad, but not 100% cured.

I cleaned out the washer, I leave to door open all the time, and I am not allowed to hang out laundry where we live.

Original post is here.

Remember the Chamomile scented toilet paper?  Original post here.

Now I am not saying I am totally relaxed because of the scent, but will admit it is very pleasant and will continue buying it.  So thumbs up for whomever invented this.

Went to Wal-Mart and picked these three onsies and paid a total of $3.23 for all three you can't turn them down at that price.

Remember my to-do list from the beginning of the month?  Here is my progress on that:

     decorate the powder room - that is totally doable, so I see no problem doing that (will be starting on that on Tuesday)
  • decorate the master bedroom - that is iffy, that job may go into March - no progress here
  • menu plan - that was only partly done in January, so need to work on that - did it last week
  • finish knitted baby blanket for dd, we should know the sex of the baby by this upcoming weekend - we hope - nearly done
  • finish two baby quilts.  One is cut out the other is not - one finished, other not started need to order some more material.
  • encourage dh and help him in the basement to get all the framing done and make a good start on the electrics.  There are a lot of bulk heads to make in the basement which equals a lot of work. - done a little more
  • sort out the basement and see what we don't want and try and sell those unwanted items. - haven't started
  • knit a pair of socks - this is proving to be a pain in the butt and I think it has something to do with the yarn I have? - need a new plan of action here
  • cut back on grocery spending and use what is in the cupboards - menu planning will help with this - work in progress
  • try and save as much money as I can and not buy anything online all month. - so far so good, but I do need to order material; however I have the money put aside for that
  • sort out my blue air miles card, as I want to be able to cash in for groceries not just goods. - done!

  • So overall not too bad one week into the month.  How is your to do list progress going so far this month?

    You're making progress on that list. My list is a line of one that says 'do list.'
    I need to get camomile toilet paper for Mr Him. He thinks it's luxury when we have quilted.

    Do these to-do list get ever get any shorter, seems there is always something 'to do', in our house anyway. You are making more headway than we are.

    Just curious, but how come you are not allowed to hang washing out?

    Great buy on the little vests :-)

    Gill, your list looks daunting! I'm slowly whittling away at mine. The bedroom redecorating has stretched out more than two months now, still waiting on a few finishing touches. Wishing you all the best with yours.

    Anne in the kitchen said...

    To do's are never finished, just replaced by another to do list, but we all try to get them done anyway! Great buy on the onsies!

    Hmm... scented toilet tissue. Love the onesies. I was able to get preemie size for a friend having triplets, at a close out price of .25 can you believe that?

    i knew that their was a paper towel with lotion on it so you can dry and put lotion on at the same time but never heard of scented tp

    Jackie said...

    Great progress on your list.

    God bless.

    Well that's a lot of progress Gill. Have to say I've never heard of that loo paper. Will look out for it. I usually buy mine from Home Bargains so I'll keep an eye out. Probably too up market for Home Bargains though.

    Rose said...

    That is a real buy on the onesies...and congrats on making progress in some of your items at least. I think you are going good!

    great process! try washing the towels on hot with sudsy ammonia. worked for me when the kids were little and my towels smelled but were washed a lot.

    Betsy said...

    Wow, you're making great progress on most of the items. I laughed again at the chamomile toilet paper. Who knew? :-).
