The school my daughter attends held their prom last night. The theme was "We Had the Time of our Lives".
I bought her dress and shoes for under $100 and we did her hair and makeup ourselves, we took our own pictures and she used our car to travel back and forth to the event location. I didn't spend money for an expensive dress, professional photographer, limousine, flowers, nails or hair, which are nice to have when you can afford them, but not necessary and even more so when you live on a smaller budget.
5 cups oats, 1 1/2 cups peanut butter, and 1 cup of honey. Simply mix the honey and peanut butter and then add the oats and mix well. Pour into a 13 x 9 pan and press flat with the back of a spoon. Refrigerate for approximately two hours and then cut into bars.
Breakfast today was our free bacon, which I wrote about earlier this week, along with scrambled eggs and toast. I had my usual ice water to drink.
How was your weekend?
Live simply by not spending money you don't have.
