Getting Back to Normal

May 30th, 2017 at 04:50 pm

After a week away from home, I needed to get some groceries. I hit both Aldi and Food4Less, getting 10 items at each place. Aldi: walnuts, salad, carrots, chicken, margarine, almond milk, apple pie filling, flour, syrup, vinegar. ($29) Food4Less: strawberries, blueberries, frozen peas, frozen green beans, roast beef, tortillas, sherbet, mini-bagels, tuna, salsa. ($18)

I bought the roast beef for French Dip sandwiches -- already have the buns -- and I got the apple pie filling because it was on clearance and I have a pie crust in the freezer to use up. I'm hoping I have enough crust to make a lattice top. If not, I'll do a crumb crust. If the pie turns out, I will share with the kids and C.

Variables are at 8% and include a $2 donation and $1.50 for laundry.

I called the courthouse this morning and got the jury duty summons postponed for three months. Yay! They were very nice about it, too. Now I need to start planning the June trip in earnest. BFF will not be available to take me to the airport, so I may just drive all the way to Indy and park the car at the airport. And I have to reserve a rental car in Florida. This time, I will be sure to use a company that is on-site at the airport.

Nothing on my schedule today, so I'm going to just enjoy getting things back in order and reading.

Almost forgot! I also went to PetSmart and used a 30% off coupon to get more kitty litter. That was $8.

    I placed an order online at PetSmart using the 30% off of Dr. Elsey's kitty litter and saved on shipping by picking it up in the store. The bag is 40lbs. There is also a rebate on the Dr. Elsey's website for the litter.

    Glad it worked out easily to postpone jury duty!

    Check the prices on before renting a car. (It's a reservation service, not an actual car rental business).

    We were able to book a minivan rental from Enterprise through for our upcoming road trip at a substantial discount.

    You also might price a shuttle service and compare it to the cost of leaving your car at the airport. The last time I flew out of SFO, they were charging $24 per day in long-term parking. At SMF they charge $12. Two weeks (?) of that will add up fast.

    Glad you enjoyed your recent trip! Smile

    Glad to learn you could postpone your jury duty. I'd say you are getting back to your normal schedule. Good deal on the kitty litter!
