Grocery Store Not A Success

October 20th, 2012 at 04:07 pm

I wanted to spend under $50 at the grocery store. But then looking at the list I felt it would be more like $100. Well it was $140. I only had $100 budgeted for it. I am now short $109 on the 1st of November. I will probably borrow it from my mom. I get paid on the second so it would only be for one day. I could transfer it from savings account but I am more likely to pay my mom back than myself. I just don't have that much will power.

My sister gave me the $10 for the milk I bought her last week. That will help. I also have two $20 checks that my mom gave my daughter to deposit. I have already given her the money. I took that into account for my balance on the first.

Settling in for a quiet night watching Georgia football. GO DAWGS!

    How much have you spent so far, during October, on eating out and cigarettes?

    Darn. Sorry to hear it didn't work for you. JOA, has an excellent idea to think about which meals are thrifty for you...so that during weeks when funds are low you only buy the inexpensive things you still enjoy.

    Eggs and toast is a meal we have quite often.
    We also like a soup this time of year. Look for great deals on canned soup.

    I'm cheering for you!
