Enjoying Lower Gas Prices

September 13th, 2022 at 04:56 pm

I filled the gas tank yesterday at Sam's to the tune of $38. The price was below $4, first time in a long time at that station. I did get gas below $4 on my recent travels in Indiana and Michigan.

I made a few corrections in my log, and variables are now at 62%, a bit high for not-quite-yet-midmonth, but that is often my pattern.  It will even out.

I pulled out some frozen avocado yesterday and let it thaw in the fridge. This morning I made avocado toast. I was promptly sick. Don't know if it was that or something else, really. It seemed like an awfully fast reaction. At any rate, I'm throwing out what's left. I have frozen avocado before, but maybe I didn't do it properly this time. Maybe it was not fresh enough when I did it.

I'm finishing the bag of salad today, and I'm trusting it wasn't what made me sick. I had some for lunch yesterday -- I think it would have worked on me faster than that if it were bad. I'm also wondering about the bleu cheese dressing.

I'm looking forward to grocery shopping on Thursday. As Frugal Foodie has pointed out, if I buy maple syrup, it will take up a big chunk of my weekly budget, but I really want to get some. During the pandemic I bought artifical maple syrup, and I didn't enjoy it at all. Even though that's what I ate most of my life! I have gotten accustomed to the superior taste of real maple syrup. I hope I can fit it in. I don't have too many necessities on my list. We'll see.

    Hope you can get the maple syrup. It is expensive, but even more so at a regular grocery store.

    You'll figure out a way to make it work -- you always do!

    Sorry you got ill. Hopefully it was just something that hit you and it is over and done with.

    Do you have a CVS near you?

    Their O Organics Maple Syrup is buy one/get one half off for $6.79 this week.
    that makes an 8 Oz bottle just over $5.00.

    It will last a really long time. Maybe count $5.00 this month and advance yourself $5.00 from a future month?

    In our family, it is common to give real maple syrup as a gift, usually to grampa ( who actually used to help his great uncle at sugar time in Vermont.) Maybe put the idea out there at present time.
