Yesterday I spent $45 on my Sam's membership. I received a $20 gift card. I cruised through the store, mainly to see what was available, and did not buy anything. I was disappointed to see that the store does not carry my brand of cat litter, nor a grain-free dry cat food. But I think I will find enough other things to make it worthwhile.

I did briefly look at the wine offerings. They had quite a few "highly-rated" brands priced between $10 and $20, probably much better wine than I drink, but I don't perceive the difference, so I'll stick with my cheap brands, which I can get for around $5. I stopped at Walgreen's on my way home and bought a bottle.

I made cheese sauce with the thawed milk yesterday. I forgot that I had no flour to use as a thickening agent, so I substituted corn starch. I learned something! It made much better, smoother cheese sauce than usual. I made two servings of mac & cheese. I still have quite a bit of sauce left over, so I'm going to season it to make Welsh rarebit today.

Very ugly weather this morning and I'm on the fence about whether to go to the gym. I don't want to skip too much and make it a habit. But I don't like hearing news reports that winter has "an icy grip" on Chicago.

I hear that gas prices are going to jump (or have), so I'm glad I have the Sam's option now. I'll also be glad to have it when I take my road trip with BFF in a couple of weeks. I do hope the weather warms up a bit before we do that!

    I hope your Sam's membership works out for you. Our local Sam's does not have gas. We used to have a membership that we shared with my mom. We finally realized that we didn't really save enough to warrant the membership. My mom use to buy coffee because it was cheaper there, but then she found if she watched the local grocery sales ads, she could find it as cheaper or even less when it was on sale.

    Sorry about your weather. Downstate it is cooler and gloomy. We might get flurries, but hopefully not much more.
