Lists: #TheTue10 and #30Lists

Happy September! I’ve got two lists to talk about today 🙂

The Tuesday 10First up, The Tuesday 10 via Feeisms.

This week’s Tuesday 10 prompt is: What would I do with $100?

I had to laugh as this is actually very fitting. Mr Boots handed me $100 in scrap money last weekend. He told me to spend it however I wanted (massage, get my nails done) because it would probably be a while before I could do anything like that.

I thought long and hard about what to do with that $100. You know what? It doesn’t take much for me to make $100 disappear.

I’ve spent about $90 on of it, and here’s what I bought:

  1. These earrings, because I LOVE the pair I have in my second ear holes and I need some for the first.
  2. Sesame Street: Old School Volume 2 as a Christmas present for the boys. We have Volume 1 and love it, so I can’t wait to see this one.
  3. Insurgent (Helloooo Four!)
  4. Kid-size rakes and broom for the boys to “help” in the yard once the leaves start falling
  5. Mats for the photographs I’m entering in the State Fair photography contest
  6. Some craft supplies for G
  7. A notebook for my 30 Days of Lists challenge
  8. Breakfast at McDonald’s
  9. Lunch at the mall
  10. A carousel ride for the boys

I looked into things like curtains, curtain rods, comforter sets because these are things we could use. But what I like would end up costing me more than $100. I didn’t want to spend it all in one place 😉

30 days of lists

Next is something new I’m trying. I came across 30 Days of Lists earlier this year when I was on Pinterest looking at journaling ideas.

I love lists and thought this would be something fun to do so I splurged, spent the $10 to officially participate (this includes blog access, a private Facebook group, and some printables and discounts to make your own fancy lists!). There is a prompt for each day of the month and you can make your list however you want: on a post-it, digitally, in a journal, whatever!

I’m jealous of the listers who have pretty booklets for theirs. I have everything I need to make a petty book like them, I just lack time and, mostly, energy at the moment.

So when I want tot the craft store I went down the drawing pad aisle and found this little notebook. I decided it would be perfect to write my lists. I could doodle and add stickers if/when I felt like it.

I hope to post a round up of my lists at the end of the month, but in the mean time you can follow along on my Instagram page and by searching #30lists.
