Today I slept late, read the Sunday paper, and clipped coupons. I had lunch with my mom while discussing the menu for a party we are having on Thursday night. We spent a good part of the afternoon looking at recipes and trying to finalize our plans. I’m also planning on baking some bread and dessert for tonight, as well as making dinner.
It’s a pretty quiet day around here. We are expecting thunderstorms any minute, so any plans for outdoor activity has been cancelled. We need the rain so I’m not complaining!
How did you spend your simple Sunday?
I had a choice today. I could either go shopping for some desperately needed work clothes, or I could keep my Sunday simple by not driving and accomplishing some tasks around the house. I opted for the latter. Yesterday was a simple day as well (I only left the house to pick up take-out for dinner), but I decided that I would devote Tuesday (when I don’t have to work at my part-time job) to running errands, so I could stay at home and save money.
Today is devoted to cleaning my room, which is an unqualified disaster, doing some laundry, making bread, and applying for jobs. Dinner tonight is grilled chicken, risotto with peas, and wheat dinner rolls.
How are you spending your simple Sunday?
I like to spend my Sundays relaxing. I try to make them no-drive days (days where I don’t leave the house, thus not driving to save gas and be more environmental) and just hang out at home. Today can’t be a no-drive day because I’m driving home from spending the weekend with my best friend, but until I leave, we aren’t leaving the house. We are watching movies and enjoying each other’s company until I leave to go home. Most of my Sundays are the same; I spend the day reading, watching reruns of old shows with my mom, and preparing for the week ahead.
I find that spending my Sundays simply not only helps me stay relaxed and less stressed, but is also very frugal. If I don’t leave the house, I’m not tempted to buy unnecessary things while out running errands. Plus it gives me more time to spend with my family.
