Weekend Recap-Things we didn't buy.

The N-boy and I had a pretty good weekend, with some business but also some time to hang out and get things done around the house.

We started the weekend with date night on Friday, going to see Brave at the theater.

Saturday we did a lot of running around doing errands and on the hunt for some DIY project idea items. We're working on going through some of the cluttered areas of our house and finding better ways to store things. One of the areas we wanted to work on is the front coat closet, where we also store shoes, hats, scarves, and bags. Unfortunately we didn't find anything to help with that project, but we did find quite a few things we didn't buy even though they would have been highly festive.

Our best didn't buy finds were at the Habitat for Humanity ReStore. 

What I wanted: a thread and zipper rack from Walmart. 
This definitely got me the eye roll from the N-boy. 

What the N-boy wanted: an old school sign about carpal tunnel. 
Admittedly, he did want to make it say something else, but still. 

Sunday we spent a relaxing day at home sorting through various areas in the house. We worked in the front closet, the N-boy's office and my office. We also decided to do a major purge of our paper files (which were in great disarray) and shredded a ton of paper. We also decided to start scanning and then shredding the bills that come in after they're paid to avoid getting into this situation about. This whole purge and shred adventure was actually quite calming once we got into it, although a little stressful and emotional at times. 

What was the best part of your weekend?
