This and That

May 15th, 2022 at 07:22 pm

The gas that I didn't get a receipt for was $44. Gosh. I remember being shocked when I paid more than $20 in one fillup.

Since then I have eaten out twice, both times associated with baseball games.  So far eating out totals $21.

I ordered a jar of my night cream from Amazon, which will arrive today.  It was $30.  I figure I use two jars a year.

I just put a load of laundry in - $2.

Variables so far this month -- 42%.

Tomorrow I'm getting my fuel injector cleaned, which will be around $140. And then on Wednesday I'm getting my hair cut, which will be $73 plus tip.  So this will not be a low-spending month. I hope I will have something to sweep into savings.

I have been avoiding the grocery store, but eventually I will have to get some staples.  I will say, though, the free frozen dinners are helping out.

There is a full lineup of baseball games this coming week, but then they will be done for the year. Some of the games are away games. I hope I won't have to fill the tank again.

Good family news -- my DIL got a job at a major university (some of you can probably guess which one), which will really help out with tuition for my grandkids when the time comes. Not to mention it will be a great boost to their family income. So happy for them!

    Congrats to DIL!! I am glad the free meals are helping out. I know that the free food I receive from the senior center helps me immensely.

    I don't understand tipping we don't do that here...when we were visiting there I had to ask what to tip as we never had to do it

    Glad those free meals are helping stretch your food dollars!

    That's wonderful news about DIL's new job!

    I guess I've never thought about getting the fuel injector cleaned. I will have to look into that since my car is a bit older.

    Deb, I wouldn't have thought of it either. It was recommended after the 12-point inspection that was done when I did the safety recall.

    Well, that's a good idea. I learned something new today! Thanks!
