Expenses and Planning

December 8th, 2017 at 08:58 am

My gas level was just getting too low for comfort, so I filled up this morning for $28.

Last night I paid $1 for parking at Tae Kwan Do.

This morning I snagged free parking while I went to the library and checked out Sue Grafton's latest book and an audiobook for my trip tomorrow.

Had cereal and toast for breakfast this morning. Lunch will be fried rice, and dinner will be ants on a log and yogurt.

After I come home from my trip to Indiana, I'll have to stock up a bit on groceries, but not till then.

I took gifts and the dentist visit out of my variables, and now the percentage used is only 64%. Would like to keep that very low, as the hit to savings is more than $500.

I'm going to be doing some traveling before my gap year hits -- planning a February trip to Florida to see my son, a road trip to New England with BFF and a girlfriend trip -- destination unknown. Both of the latter sometime in the spring. I'll be doing an uber frugal January to get ready. Good practice for my uber frugal year beginning in July.

    Hope you have fun on your trip. I'm jealous you snagged the newest Grafton book at the library.

    By the way, what is ant 🐜 on the log?

    Ants on a log -- peanut butter and raisins on celery sticks.

    Hi CB, just thinking of your gap year, I know you love to buy gifts for your family, and you're always so generous and also contribute to the grandkids' college funds...would it be prudent to not buy gifts that year, maybe bake or cook something for gifts, or make handmade? I certainly wouldn't want a family member spending money on gifts when they need to conserve funds.
