Dinner last night cost $19 including tip, and I brought home leftovers for lunch today. I spent $20 on gas.

This morning I grocery-shopped -- $31 all together, with $4 going to household supplies (Kleenex). So the food I got for $27 is: 2 packages of granola bars, liter of diet Pepsi, bag of coffee, can of pasta sauce, chicken soup base, almond milk, 2 cups of Greek yogurt, frozen green beans, tub of ice cream, a white onion. I used three coupons -- on the Kleenex, yogurt and granola bars. The coffee was a deal because it was pumpkin spice "holiday" coffee. Everything was on sale except for the onion and the chicken soup base.

Next on the agenda is a haircut at Supercuts. I have a coupon from RetailMeNot for $5 off at participating dealers -- but it doesn't say who is participating, so I guess we'll see if it works. I've never been to Supercuts but in my new neighborhood it is the closest hairdresser, so I'm going to give it a whirl.

If I'm really feeling ambitious I'll go to the mall and buy some puzzle books with my B&N gift card, and then see if I can find something to buy at Lord & Taylor that's only $8. Probably not! But if I use my Discover card at L&T I'll get an $8 credit, so it's worth a try. Surely they have socks?

I got up early this morning and washed my blanket and towels -- $1.50.
