More Spending

November 9th, 2022 at 03:37 pm

November 7 was a busy day for spending.  I ordered a birthday present for my granddaughter ($60), bought candy and cough drops at Walgreens ($18), paid my annual AARP membership fee ($16), and ordered rubber shelf liner from Amazon ($17).

The candy was to put in a mug for a birthday gift, but about half of the bag is left over, so I'll have to count half as a grocery expense rather than a gift expense. That means my limit tomorrow when I grocery shop is $19.

The rubber shelf liner is to be used to make my throw rugs less slippery. I think I got that tip on Dollar Stretcher.

I am doing well on my food supply. I haven't even used any of the frozen chicken I bought last week. Today I'm going to make cheese quesadillas for lunch, garnished with the very last of my homemade meat-filled spaghetti sauce. For breakfast I had toast with peanut butter and honey. Supper -- I don't know yet! It may be granola with raisins and walnuts. I am rarely very hungry at suppertime.

Variables are at 37%.

    Good deal on the shopping.

    Every so often if you buy certain things at Walgreens, there is one of those coupons from the register that gives you a free year of AARP. I actually went in and did it, and although I still had some time left on our subscription, it added a year. I think you have to buy some of the Walgreens products to get it, but if that is on your list, and you get one, be sure to apply for the free year.

    That's good to know! I've never seen a coupon like that!
