|Front of the new book covered in fabulous fabric!|
Another skill I learned is book binding. It is similar to hand sewing in a lot of ways. I thread the pages together and I cover the boards with fabric. It can be tedious, but definitely worth the work. This book is for my grocery shopping.
|I drew lines one page then ran the rest through my copier.|
I know this is a little off topic for fabric... but I thought I'd share anyway. I did cover the book in fabric! Does that count?
|Once a month, I sit down for 30-45min and|
plan all the exciting things we will get to eat .
I'm a planner... if you couldn't tell with my crazy monthly menu. I don't always stick to it perfectly, but it does help me plan my weekly shopping trip better.
This is what my old book looks like. I bring it with me to the store and I roughly calculate what it will cost me before I get to the register.... which helps me resist impulse purchasing those double stuff oreos that call my name oh so sweetly.
This system has helped me dramatically change my food choices and spending habits for the better. And I just wanted to share it all with you. Hope you don't mind!
How do you use your AWESOME SKILLS to help you and your family?
