Update and Grocery Budget

April 23rd, 2013 at 01:20 pm

My son did the grocery shopping this week and he did pretty good. He spent $180. My budget was $125 but I don't think that is realistic anymore to feed a family of 3 for two weeks. He didn't do any of the impulse buying that I usually do and stuck to the list. So I need to up my budgeted amount to $175.

I am coming out of my depression and it feels pretty good. I am making dinner at night and cleaning the kitchen. These are things that weren't happening for a while. Went to the dr yesterday and they are going to change some of my meds. That should help even more. I don't know if I mentioned it but my boss called me on the carpet about things not getting done. It was basically "things need to change or your job is on the line". So things have changed.

Financially I am looking pretty good for the rest of the month. Everything is just on auto pilot. Got a nice surprise today. DD had a follow up appointment at the foot doctor to look at her toe. I was expecting to pay the $90 office visit. But turns out it is included in the original bill as a post op visit. SWEET!

That is about all for now. Have to run to UPS.
