January 15, 2011

Sorry I didn't get a chance to log on yesterday.  My sister can to town and I was running around with her, no I didn't spend any money with her.  Well actually I did when we went out to eat for her sister n law birthday.  We went to Wasabi which is a hibachi grill so you know it was pricey.  Even though my brother n law paid the bill, I still gave him $26 to cover my meal.  He could take care of my appetizer and drink, I try to mooch off of people when I actually have to funds to pay for something and this is something that I have been looking forward to all week, so I was prepared to shell out.

I got my oil changed which was a necessity which was $42 because I had 2 lights out, dayum that was not something I could get out of doing because I have changed a light bulb in my car and it is no easy matter.  Then I headed to the grocery store where I spent $87.81, now yes this is over my $75 budget but I ended up buying some staples that will last for a month or more like a bag of potatoes $3.47, instead of one pork tenderloin I ended up getting a 2 pack for $8.69 which will be another meal later, another container of dish washing liquid  for $2.47 (I couldn't remember if I had some at home and I do), a lingerie bag for laundry, mine has a hole in it $1.47, sugar $2.54 will last a month or longer, plastic cups at $2.48 will last over a month and a bag of chicken breasts at $6.98 will last at least 2 meals.  So I think I did pretty good, but I did have to stop at another store that had the beef I like and spent $7.69 on two packages.  On the meal this week I am making Parmesan Pork Loins for Sunday, Rosemary Garlic Chicken breasts for Monday and Beef Stir-Fry for Tuesday.  Wednesday the boys will be with their grandparents and my mother and I usually eat stuff in the cabinets like cereal.  Thursday of course is leftover day and Friday is our fast food day.  Saturday fend for yourself day.  Now just to stay out of the store all week.  The only thing I saw int he paper that I want to buy is a yellow pillow for my bed and a kettle ball which is on sale at Target.  Oh, the temptation.

  1. Those cost certainly do add up when you start to look at what you really do spend. Been trying to be wiser with my spending. Looking forward to reading more of your posts.
