(We remembered that we had a coupon for a free book which expired 12/1. We had to pay for postage.)
(We bought a headlamp and taillight set up for Matt because, with time change, he is cycling a lot in the dark. We used a gift card he got for his birthday for the bulk of it, but we did have to drop a bit of cash, too. We saw no reason for him to be cycling around unsafe for a couple weeks though so we just went ahead and bought it.)
#4 A bucket and nylon sack, also for brewing
(Matt started too many fermented beverages at once. These were required for a certain stage of the rhubarb wine and all our vessels were already full! Ooops. Poor planning on our part.)
#5 A cup of tea, bowl of fruit, breakfast potatoes, and toast at a local restaurant
(I was invited to a birthday brunch with some girlfriends. I didn't want to say no to the occasion just because of NSN...so I went. I justified it to myself in that I'd intended to go out to a $10 concert the night before and had opted to skip it for a game night in with friends. So, either way I was spending that $10.)
#6 I signed up for a fitness program.
(This whole gym thing will probably be a post unto itself, but for now I'll just say I found a trainer I like this fall and spent eight weeks working with her. She has a six week follow-up program that started yesterday. So, I had to pay for it yesterday.)
