I just put in a load of laundry, and later today I'm going to do a mystery shop at a restaurant, then pick up the boys.

The big snowstorm that is predicted will hit us hard on Saturday. I am toying with the idea of parking in a garage, which costs $11 per day. I'm not even sure that overnight parking is permitted, though, so I have to investigate more.

My afternoon with the boys yesterday was cheap. We went to the library, and I paid $2 to park. I could have moved the car after the first hour and got by scot-free, but I decided not to. I didn't want to leave the boys alone and I didn't want to pull them away from what they were doing.

I made them lunch at their home (their decision) which meant fish stick sandwiches. They didn't care for them so much, but it was the easiest thing I could find in their freezer. I much prefer cooking at home.

My package from Amazon arrived yesterday, so today I'm going to fill the bottles and rearrange storage in the bathroom.

Variables are at 58%, with only six days to go! I'm going to stick with using up food in the freezer and pantry, even though I might have some weird meals. I would like to put off buying groceries and gas, and have a really low-spend month! But the snowstorm might mess up that plan, especially if I decide I should park under a roof!

    Hi, CB! We keep getting different amounts of how much snow we may or may not get downstate. We received 9.5 inches last weekend. And it's basically still here. We had ice a couple of days ago which made things interesting. I think you will get the worst of it this weekend though.

    Years ago I bought a cover for my car that had elastic and hooks to cover my vehicle. The hooks kept it from blowing off. It might be more expensive than $11 for parking for one day, but if we keep getting more bad weather, it might bear looking into. I know I put it on one day at work when we were supposed to get a boatload of snow during the day and when I took it off, my car was snow free. Anyway, maybe with your shopping and bargain hunting, you can find one that will work that is reasonable.

    No one around here uses car covers, and I suspect it is because they might get stolen. I live in a good neighborhood, but it is right over the border of Chicago and we do get "visitors" who come and rip off the "rich" people in our suburb. My car has been broken into twice! I'm sure they would take a car cover. So sad.
