Wednesday, January 18th

I wish I could say it was another Zero Spend Day, but nope, I can't.

I did however take some actions against food waste this morning and will do a few more things this evening.

Had to stop at Publix, cat food, cat litter, small cherry tomatoes, bananas and .... seems like something else? Just a little over $19. Ick

The Boy needed to get 2 more books, so $250 was deposited into his account and that left him with about $50 extra for food. He said that he filled up his pantry the last time they went to Aldis which made me pretty damn proud of him. He said that his girlfriend doesn't like it so much there anymore but he LOVES it, that was a quote. :) Gotta love him just for that. I know, it's because he can buy bagels for $1.39 instead of $3.99 and a gallon of milk for a little more than $2 instead of $4. Yeah. He's a smart kid I think.

Came home and dialed up the Insanity Plyometric Cardio workout ... ummm, sorry, couldn't do it all, no ambition, desire, etc. Plus I was just freaking HOT. Should have done the dance class instead but left the office too late.

Also paid the Macy AE and Amazon today, $40 and $80. I know its MORE than the minimal but I have such a hard time doing that. A few dollars over ... so when I redo the budget next week, I'm rounding them all up to the nearest fifth ... I'm also going to add in for the Boy's groceries AND my dad's electric. Uggg.

Yes, I believe things are about to get a little tougher around here.


  1. Sounds like you have a smart young man there! Congrats on that! I feel the same way you do about the rounding up. I always go to the nearest $10 when paying CC's. I have been so busy getting my blogging habits back on track that I have forgot to mention my progress. I am tracking it carefully. I think I will do a bi-monthly update starting on Saturday. I am just loving following both your blogs! I did finally post that Talipia recipe, its a few posts back!

    1. Thanks Deb ... I've got the recipe slated for the first week of February ... will let you know how it turns out (and if good ... will do a follow up on other blog!) ...
