Grocery Store Results and Other Savings

July 27th, 2012 at 04:45 pm

We went to the grocery store and I spent $115. I had budgeted $200 so that is an $85 savings. YEA! I will have to make a trip next weekend to get orange juice but that should be all.

My prescriptions came in $10 less than I had budgeted.

I filled up my car for $25.25. I fill up every Friday and Tuesday. When I fill up on Tuesday it is usually around $35-40. It is never more than $50. So that is at least a $25 savings since I budget $100 per week for gas.

I had talked myself into getting a salad from zaxby's tonight and starting the challenge tomorrow. But my daughter wouldn't let me and since she was driving I couldn't argue with her. I had told her about the challenge and asked her to help me. Help me she did. So now I gotta rustle something up for dinner. She has already eaten at a church picnic. Guess I will make some nachos and settle in for a quiet night at home.

    I think you are doing great, N G Girl. I do hope you will write down some of these things that you are succeeding with in a notebook and go over them. That is a great way to make yourself really see that you are taking very positive steps and that you deserve the credit for it.

    All of us get down and can be hard on ourselves at times, especially when we feel overwhelmed. If you have something to refer back to that makes you refocus on what you are doing right I really think it will help. At least I know it does when I do that.

    Keep up the good work and have a great week-end.

    Oh, I'm so glad you didn't stop and get that salad. You made it through the first day of the challenge! Good for you. And tomorrow you'll have the strength of knowing that you made it through day one and you can make it through day two just fine. And good for your daughter, too!
