Everyday Things

November 12th, 2022 at 10:07 pm

I'm doing well on my grocery challenge, but other expenses are rocking my boat. I just updated my spreadsheets, and variables are at 69%, and we're not even halfway through the month. Today's spending was at PetSmart. I have had to dump all the live plants in my aquarium -- they all died but one, and it was turning black. Instead of the plants killing the algae, the algae was killing the plants. I bought some plastic plants, and I also stocked up on feeder blocks and filter pads. Altogether it was $61, yikes! I also ordered a set of scissors and a package of 24 washcloths from Amazon, and that was $29. So not even anything fun or exciting.

    I'm feeling like there always seems to be some kind of an unexpected expense that comes along. It gets hard to stay within the budget some months. You always do such a great job on your grocery shopping!

    It's getting closer to the middle of the month, CB! I'm sure you will still get it to all even out. But there are things you have to get just to keep things going.
