Catching Up

April 14th, 2015 at 02:42 pm

I stopped at the grocery on the way home last night and bought my ten items. I spent $35 and saved $6 on six of the items. What I bought: Cinnamon, wine, chicken breasts, lettuce, dried cranberries, granola bars, butter, olive oil, bananas, and Greek yogurt.

Meals will be:
Salad with chicken strips
Grilled cheese sandwiches
Turkey wraps
Chicken medallions and vegetables
Cheese quesadillas with pineapple salsa

There should be enough chicken left over to make fajitas next week, but I'll need to buy peppers for that.

Once home, I did a load of laundry for $1.50. Lots more to do.

I got my phone bill for $50.

I've spent 34% of my variables allowance. Since we're almost halfway through the month, I'm doing well!

Almost forgot to say! I dug a pot of jonquils out of the trash yesterday, and they're sitting on my desk, looking just lovely! One person's trash is another's treasure, but I can't figure out why anyone would throw these away!

    Someone threw away flowers in bloom? Must have hated the person that gave them, or something!

    Yes, they're in bloom and in perfect condition! Very odd!

    Maybe your flower disposer was going away? I've done that if I'm going out of town and can't get get my neighbors to take the flowers? I really like your menus. Thanks for writing them!
