Day Twenty-Seven

Calories: 829

Grilled Swiss on Rye
Brussels Sprouts w/ Parmesan
1 square dark chocolate

Yes, calories are really low today, but I suspect they were really high yesterday.

I went to Walgreens today, just taking a walk, but of course I made the mistake of going in. I just wanted to see if they had the eyebrow pencil I had seen advertised.

Well, they had them, and they were offering a second one for half-price. So I bought two, one for home and one for my travel kit.

Then I looked at the reading glasses, and I saw there was a BOGO deal on Foster Grants. So yes, I got two pairs of reading glasses. I have lost two pairs this year. I keep reading glasses in my living room, bedroom, bathroom, kitchen, work area, and purse. I really need them all these places and I am NOT going to wear them on a chain around my neck. In the past, I have picked them up supercheap at garage sales and such, but this time, I got nice ones at the right strength for me -- and they are attractive, too. I think they will help with my headaches. I can really tell the difference, and I'm kind of embarrassed I never got the correct strength before.

Anyway, I spent $48 at Walgreens. (But I saved $39!!) That pushed my variables spending to 109%. And it's only the 18th. And I still have a weekend trip ahead of me. Ah well. Last month was low-spend, and I think April had better be low-spend as well!

    Foster Grants are nice. Try to pick up some spares at the dollar store. I get my reading and sunglasses at the dollar store. It doesn't hurt so much when I inevitably lose them. Smile

    Your eyes and reduction of headaches are worth it!

    I always get my glasses at the dollar store and I have about 5 pair too. I
    recently found some reading glasses at Ace hardware for $1.99 and I love them!

    I imagine your spending will even out. Sounds like you got some good bargains.
