    this week i tracked everything i bought. (i feel like i have been spending too much lately). with that i bought only things i needed. which was food and cleaning supplies. i spent $107,  which i think is good! i have to track more of my stuff to find out. also i have been exchanging goods and services with my neighbors which strengthens our relationship and is fun!

    this week i went out in my community to help and learn about others. my neighbors  a few houses away were out side the other day with their bikes outside and as i was walking by i asked if they were planning a bike ride. they told me one of the their bikes were not working properly. i told them i could take it hope and try and fix it. i did fix it and they were extremely grateful! it felt good to help others in my community.
