Day thirty-four

First, a follow up to Extreme Couponing month:

I did my first grocery shop since finishing Extreme Couponing month.  It was very weird not to be using coupons, but sort of freeing.  I realized today that I really have changed.  I look out for tearpad coupons and for the coupons attached to end-of-day bread and close-to-expiry meat.  I’m excited when I find a good deal and I still brought my coupon organizer with me.  Before last month, I would get a thrill from spending money.  It was nice to splurge when I could.  Now I get a thrill from saving money!  I hope this lasts.

Art planning:

I can already tell this month is going to be much harder to organize than couponing month.  Trying to schedule one hour every day to devote to art is hard enough (especially considering I’m trying to organize it around working restaurant hours).  But then trying to organize it around either other people’s schedule (if it’s something that I’m doing with a friend or teacher) or around the hours art things run (which tend to be in the evenings or on the weekend, and I work many evenings and weekends) is going to be a challenge.  Then finally, writing about it afterwards.  Couponing usually took place during the day, so I had plenty of time to write before work.

On that note, I am going to do my ‘art project’ later this evening, so I will be writing about day thirty-four’s art either late tonight or tomorrow.  Although I will still write every day about art, recaps of daily art experiences might happen the next day in some instances this month.

One thought on “Day thirty-four

  1. Maybe you already thought of that and are planning to do so but one thing you could do is incorporate your art in your daily activities. Would help with the scheduling on some days. Obviously you’re not going to paint a self-portrait while riding your bike but maybe try some form of art project at work if at all possible or during public transportation, etc. I don’t have specific ideas but I’m sure you can come up with something interesting. Anyway, just a thought from the outside.
