Save. Spend. Splurge.

Week of Money: Where Little Bun becomes a salty warthog


8:08 a.m. — *Little Bun grunting*

Me: What’s wrong? Are you upset! You sound like a salty warthog
Little Bun: No.. I just like grunting!
Me: Oh. You sound angry.
6:15 p.m. — I make a quick fruit salad of tomatoes, watermelon and delicious spices, oil, etc


2:40 p.m. — For the first time in my life, I order food to be delivered. I am not even joking, I have never ordered anything delivered in my life. Even as children, we would order and then go and pick it up to save money on delivery. So I place an order, and I am amazed people would go, pick up food for you and deliver it… IN WINTER. I am speechless at how easy it is.

Someone messages me (I posted real time as I did it): Watching someone figure out the advances in take out delivery is amazing…

They’re teasing me but this is legit mind blowing!!!

I write back: I know it sounds weird but only this year I got over my block on paying for parking. Still won’t do taxis though unless I must, because I get so nauseous and sick when people drive me. Anyhoo. I’ve never done delivery before. The last time I had food delivered was. Never. We have never had delivery in my life because we always went to pickup be it saved money. This is my first time. It was so weird, to be honest. Too luxurious.


9:45 a.m. — Little Bun: Mommy, they put the wrong word! They wrote: “What is the furthest city from Paris in France”.. It should be FARTHEST! Bc furthest refers to time! Not distance!

Me: I am raising an English nerd apparently.

7:14 p.m. — I spend the night with Little Bun breaking pomegranates apart.

We use this method and it goes way quicker now:



5:12 p.m. — This is so true.


5:25 p.m. — I am pretty happy with these dish drying racks! I got this one, and I use it to air dry lids, plates, and other things. I got a second one because I have so many.


1:25 p.m. — While on conference calls, I am using these repurposed herb scissors to shred my papers. I don’t use them for herbs, I use them for shredding papers.


8:08 a.m. — My partner comes home with snacks. We are so happy!


6:25 p.m. — And he even got eclairs for dessert
