I totally forgot I'm suppose to be confessing my spending to help me keep on track. Since my last post about it, I've had two days of shopping.
Yesterday was a doozy! I spent $160 at the vet getting 3 cats fixed and getting their shots. That might sound like a lot but it is less than half of a regular vet because I used a big spay/neuter clinic. That money came out of my emergency fund (aka tax return). I also went to Walmart and bought a 7 foot tall indoor palm tree for the nursery for $10 (and it's real! and its not in the budget! lol) and I got an oil change and tire rotation for another $25. I also spent $25ish on ribbons to make hairbows to hopefully sell next week at the big consignment sale. Hmm..oh ya, we ate at McDonalds for breakfast for about $5.50. I also got gas, something in the high $20's. Whew I think that is it!
Today was just a grocery day. Raise your hand if you love to grocery shop (me! me!). Ever wonder what other people buy at the grocer? Well here you go!
1 Chocolate Soy Milk half gallon 1.65
4 half gallons of milk (cheaper than gallons this week!) 1.88 each
1 pack of sausage (this is sooo good - they make it in the meat department out of pork roast. It doesn't turn that nasty dark brown color when you cook it more like a light tan sort of like a seasoned pork chop yum!) - $2.09
1 marked down chicken - a 6 pound roaster, 79 cents a pound - $4.83 (in the oven now! there goes my meal planning!)
6 bags of Picsweet steamers, asian veggies and summer medley - $.89 each
1 tub of frosting $1.09
1 cake mix $1.00
1 salad dressing $2.49
1 bag of chips $1.49
1 grape juice - $2.50
1 bag 10 bean soup - $1.00
1 bag dried split peas - $.79
1 can of salt and vinegar pringles - $1.00
1 bag of barlett pears - $1.82
1 bag of winesap apples - $1.56
1 bag of zuchinni - $2.52
with tax - $39.67
Now did we need all this? Nope not really. It was a pretty sunny day and I took scooter to daycare and thought about the last time I went to the grocery store alone. Alllll alone. What fun! But I have us stocked for a long time, all we'll need is bananas when the others are gone.
What do you buy when you go to the store? I am one of those nosey sorts that likes to see what other people buy :)
