Low-Spend Pay Day

January 25th, 2018 at 05:21 am

Yesterday was a pretty low-spend pay day. Aside from paying my mortgage, electric bill, and credit cards, I spent $7 at Walgreens for panty liners and $5 for shakes at Steak N Shake. Oh, and also a $50 copay for the nephrologist. And I did a load of laundry.

Variables are at 9%.

I may go back and get more panty liners today. If I spend $12 more on them, I'll get a $2 coupon for anything at Walgreens, and they are currently priced at 25% off. I don't mind stockpiling them; I use them every day. Oh, and I have a $5 reward to use!

The nephrologist visit was almost a non-event. My kidneys are stable. My Vitamin D level has doubled. She told me not to come back unless my creatinine level increases. My GP will take over the testing. This is good; my GP has only a $5 copay!

Today the boys have music lessons, so I'll be taking care of chauffeuring them there after school. I may also be getting them dinner, if their parents need me to.

I'm going to be grocery shopping today -- ten items only -- probably at Jewel, because some things I need are not available at Aldi.

And of course it's back to the gym today. And it's time for a fill-up.

I made mango chutney yesterday, using up a mango that never ripened properly and some of the caramelized onions. I'll be having that with sauteed chicken tonight, unless I end up eating out with the boys. (Something I learned about mangoes -- don't refrigerate until they're ripe!)

I have yet to make the apple crisp to use up the apples. Oh, my! It might not happen today, either, since it's looking like a busy day.

    If you don't get the apple crisp made, you could use the apples for applesauce. I cook it in the Crockpot after washing, peeling, and coring them.

    Good news on the kidneys and getting to go back to the regular doctor with the $5 copay.

    We do the bulk of our grocery shopping at Aldi, but like you have to pick up a couple of things at another store.
