My Day Trip, Etc.

August 21st, 2022 at 03:36 pm

My day trip to see my BFF was great, but would you believe, I had another memory snafu! Last time I realized I didn't have one of my wallets (but found it at home later). This time, as I was getting ready to drive home, I realized I didn't have my phone. In a panic, I went back to the last place we'd been, and was SO lucky to find it sitting there on the bench untouched.  I'm starting to worry about myself!

Since this was a late celebration of my birthday, BFF paid for my lunch, including dessert and a specialty coffee. So it was a very low-spend trip. I paid $29 for gas, because the price was so low -- under $4! And, even though we shopped, I spent only $1 on a light bulb!

Yesterday I stopped at Sam's after going to the gym. I spent $12 on a large bottle of Dawn dishwashing liquid. I shouldn't have to do that again in a while!

Today should be nice and quiet. Since my grocery spending has exceeded my goal, by a bit, I'm on a food-shopping moratorium. I didn't have creamer with my coffee this morning, and it was missed, but hey, I still had my Joe. I had an English muffin for breakfast and I'm going to make chicken fajitas for lunch. There's lefover potato soup for dinner. I have plenty of food for the next ten days, just might have to do without a few favorites.

    I went over my grocery budget too, so I am doing the same, trying to get through the rest of the month without any further spending. I'm getting low on butter but everything else seems ok.

    Glad you found your phone!

    Honestly with the way prices are going up, I can understand why people are going over their food budgets!

    I hear you on watching your grocery spending, we’re in the same boat! Not due to overspend in that category but more because of majorly increased living costs. Currently until the end of the month I am trying to stretch everything and only buy the bare minimum. Funnily enough though a couple of weeks ago my grocery splurge was buying a 900ml bottle of dishwashing liquid! (Always good to buy in bulk where possible)
