Canadian Budget Binder- The Saturday Weekend Review #1

Mr.CBB’s  Saturday Weekend Review

Well, if you don’t already know I’ve participated this week in the B.C Welfare Food Challenge. This week has certainly been an eye opener for Mrs.CBB and I and I will have a final report about how this week went for us next week. I’ve just started to post some photos of the food I created from my $26 grocery budget for 1 on my Facebook page in the photos album so check them out.

I’ve also finished putting up the Christmas lights however I’m still stuck trying to find one small string to finish it off. I might as well say stuff it for this year as I don’t fancy spending more money on an additional 8ft of lights than I did on the other boxes I bought end of season.

We purchased our pumpkin for Halloween and it’s a small one but it’s just perfect. I’ll be the one in charge of the carving but I’m not one of those fancy carvers I just give it the ol’ 1,2,3 and stick a candle inside. I’ll post a picture after I have a stab at it and show you the results next week!

What do you do with your Halloween Pumpkin Design?

I’ve also started the raking the leaves process in our yard. Yes that’s my leg you see in this picture. I know I’m giving you one body part at a time but that will have to do. It’s the slow, sexy reveal, one body part at time or we can simply revert back to the watering can for all of you that remember that photo.

There is a method to my madness though don’t you worry. Next week I have a post for all of you about what I do with my leaves and why. I don’t put them to the curb, never have and never will. Don’t miss that post.

That’s about all that I did around the home front this week as I’ve been busy at work but I’m not complaining.  Who needs sleep anyways, right?

  1. I wouldn’t be surprised if you’ve come up with a way to puree the leaves into some sort of soup or stew to further lower your grocery budget! Have a great weekend, Mr. CBB.

  2. I love reading your search terms for the week, they always give me a good chuckle.

  3. Congrats on the E-book mention! Downloading now 🙂 You, Mr CBB, need to get on the self hosting ASAP! I won’t be carving a pumpkin, a job I’ve never enjoyed. I’m the grinch of Halloween, which is sort of funny because I adore candy. Hubby will do a pumpkin and usually carves something pretty neat but until I have to pretend to enjoy it, when baby girl gets older, I will continue to put as little effort as I need into Halloween.

  4. Some of those searches are PRICELESS! LOL:)

  5. John S @ Frugal Rules says:

    You’re search terms always crack me up! I just don’t know what to say about some of them. 😉 Do you have many leaves to rake up? Thankfully we do not have a whole lot, which is nice. I’ll have my post over to you this week Mr. CBB. Awesome jon on being included in the E-book! Have a great rest of the weekend!
