So I was planning on posting this BEFORE I left to the Maker’s Faire in San Metao, but was so overwhelmed with trying to get out the door that it’s now actually AFTER the Maker’s Faire, haha.
First thing: I’m leaving the San Francisco for 2 weeks and will be putting the 600 for 6 month experiment on hold.
Second thing: I’m actually already in San Francisco and Jason and I decided to restart the project on July 1st.
Redos are part of the game right? Well, once we got started three big things happened. One we realized “wow, this is freaking hard” and two “Kristin is going out of town to the good food capital of the freaking US and will be eating out more than normal” and three “did you save that receipt? no? I thought you did”. Woops.
Mainly though we decided that we would stay on track and keep learning new things about how to be thrifty and keep track of it all, but we would officially start tracking on July 1st.
We really need to figure out a way to keep track of receipts and expenses, for things like when we go to the farmer’s market. A central collection location in case we can’t enter them in right away.
So that’s the plan for that.
So what’s the plan for while I’m here in SF? Well first off there are so many thrifty foods to find so I’m going to start documenting where I’m eating and posting about that. and secondly, since I’m staying at a hostel and have access to a kitchen, I’m going to start taking pictures of and posting recipes of what I’m eating.
I don’t have my camera tonight (forgot it at a friend’s) but I’m actually going to go downstairs and make some chow in a half hour. So I’ll post about that in the morning before I head out for another adventure. I’m going to try to score some cheap clam chowder for lunch.
See you all soon and sorry about the unplanned lack of posting that happened there. You can see all about the maker’s Faire on Craft Leftovers!
Have a great night!
