Ugh. This has been a tough week. I have been diagnosed with walking pneumonia and it has left me feeling miserable. I’ve been drinking lots of orange juice and hot tea hoping it will just go away soon. I’ve got lots of projects and posts I want to work on already!
I am so grateful for all the food and premade meals I had in the freezer. It stopped us from having to eat out or go to the store.
On Saturday my 5 year old was invited to a birthday party at a local pizza parlor. I had some Kinetic Sand in my gift stash I had purchased before the holidays. I wanted to give some sand tools with it and stopped by Michaels to pick some up. I was pleasantly surprised to find that they were 70% off! We used a gift bag we had on hand and made a tag using some scrapbook paper. It cost less than 10.00 for everything. My son had a great time at the party and brought home a small pizza he had created.
My husband and son went to a friends house Saturday afternoon to watch football. I sent them with a plate of cookies made from ingredients I had on hand. I had hoped that some cookies would make it to the freezer. No such luck!
On Sunday we cancelled a subscription to Weight Watchers we weren’t using any more, putting $20 a month back into our pockets.
I was gifted a bag of hand sanitizers by my mom who can not use them. I will keep one in each car and in my purse. My husband also likes to keep one in his office.
I took advantage of a pasta sale at our local grocery store. I bought 20 boxes of pasta to add to my pantry at .59 each. I also picked up a 24 pack of bottled water for 1.99.
I continued to do research on cutting the cable cord. I’ve decided to go ahead and order an HD antenna for us to try out and see what local stations we can get with it. I will continue to price out all the other things we will need (internet price, streaming stick, streaming programs, etc.)
I spent 107.00 at the grocery store. This leaves me with $151.76 left to spend this month. I know there are a few items I want to pick up to replenish my freezer.
How was your week?
