Today's spending

November 16th, 2012 at 09:36 am

So, today I had to drop my hubby off at work. Afterwards I was supposed to meet my cousin but she cancelled. Since I was at the shopping centre, I spent some money:

ASDA: 11.99 (formula,milk,white wine,potatoes,mango,greek yoghurt)
parking: 1
Scotmid: 1 (multipack of mars caramel, bought to get change for parking)

I withdrew 10 from the ATM today. I have 8 cash left after buying sweets and paying for parking.

MIL gave us half a dozen frozen burgers from her work, so my whole chicken is still in the freezer. I bought some potatoes today to go with the chicken when we have it. Tonight I will have a burger on a roll, hubby might have the same when he comes in. Tomorrow possibly tuna and sweetcorn pasta, or macaroni. Normally I would have bought more since we got paid today but we have stuff here that needs used up.

    Isn't it nice when little unexpected windfalls help stretch the grocery budget? I am also trying to use up some of the food that has been hanging around in my cabinets before doing much more grocery shopping. Hopefully it will be used up right around the time when the good holiday/postholiday sales are going on so I can stock up again for the next few months at a discount!

    I can relate... circumstances recently lead me to buy some chocolate to break a ten-franc note, simply because there was no other way for me to get change. Drives me crazy when I am trying to stick to a budget, but on the up-side, the chocolate was excellent! Wink That was nice of MIL to offer you some beef for the freezer, it's always nice to have some insurance of a few meals ahead in there. Hope all is well with your family!
