Fifteen items

January 25th, 2011 at 11:38 am

Went to Jewel for my 15 items last night. Unlike most trips, I had a short list, and my decisions were all about how to get the best deals with my "extra" slots.

Garbage bags - house brand
Apple juice - house brand
Shredded cheddar - house brand on sale
Oatmeal cookies - house brand
5 Michelina frozen entrees - on sale
Jello mousse cups - .50 off coupon
Bag of spinach
Special K crackers - on sale
Milk - on sale
Sour cream

Grand total: $33.66

This is working. I have plentty to eat -- salad, tuna sandwiches, chicken sandwiches, pizza, soup, pasta -- all on tap for dinner. Lunches set for all week, and treats, too. Extra chicken in the freezer for future meals.

I think the part I like best is being able to carry everything in at once. That matters, when it's cold and snowy and you have to park in a parking lot and unlock two sets of doors to get inside.

In other news, I finally got my w-2 forms yesterday. I usually do electronic filing, but I'm thinking of doing paper this year. I'm in no hurry. Last year I ended up paying to file because I clicked the wrong buttons on Turbo Tax. If I file on paper, that won't happen. My taxes are so simple, there is no excuse for paying.

    It can get tricky when you add steps, like with Turbo Tax, and if you don't need the special bells and whistles then why bother? I agree, if you can do it yourself then that is the best insurance for having it done correctly, and it will lead to the same tax return anyway! Good luck this year...
