Catching Up

January 10th, 2012 at 02:01 pm

I went to Indiana this weekend to check on my booth and visit with my friend.

The booth earned $49 this month -- I say earned, but I paid $83 in rent, so it's still losing money. I put in a bunch of new stuff, a lot of it free from my friend; we'll see how well it moves. She's been cleaning out her attic and had some old toys, dinnerware etc. and she doesn't want payment for them -- just wanted to get rid of them. She would have taken them to Goodwill otherwise.

I spent $76 on gas, $20 on food, $13 at Goodwill, $6 for a car wash, $7 for a movie (War Horse). The Goodwill items were all half-price -- I got four gifts, a booth item and some Pyrex custard cups and an ornament for me.

When I got home I did my $20 grocery shop. Forgot to mentally add in the tax, so it was $21.03 when I checked out. What that bought: Cat litter, maxi pads, two packages of chicken tenders (BOGO) and a can of Rotel.

I also wrote a check to my DIL for my grandsons' Christmas presents -- a hockey class and a swim class. $270.

Last night a number of us at work went out to a bar as a sort of welcoming party for our new VP (who is very nice, by the way). I spent $16 on wine and nachos.

I'm on a low-carb day today, so I packed hard-boiled eggs, a low-carb soup, cheese, celery and dip to get me through the day. When I get home, I'll saute the chicken tenders.

I really need a haircut, but I think I'll try to make it to the weekend.

I think that's it! Hope the spending stops soon and I can start saving again!
