Money Out

June 29th, 2015 at 07:39 am

I went clothes shopping with my mum this morning. Well, I say clothes shopping, it was a few tops and mostly underwear and socks. I can't remember the last time I went shopping for clothes for me... maternity wear maybe?

We then went to Asda where I spent almost 20, but I'm going to have to replace some food I bought because I stupidly put cleaning products next to it, and they leaked. ugh. It was less than 2.00 I need to replace. Still...

My mum treated us to a coffee and a muffin. She also offered to pay for my taxi home. I was going to get the bus, but I bought more than I planned.

So, today's spending (roughly, I don't have receipts next to me):

Clothes: 32.xx
Asda: 20.xx (mostly baby snacks, diluting juice, bread,milk,yogurts,enchilidas)
Taxi: 1.80 OOP
Bus ticket and utilities: 93.20

I'm expecting my meat order to arrive on 1/7 and the other order to arrive quite soon too.

    I had a leak yesterday too as my iced tea jug leaked into the meat drawer of the fridge. Not a huge mess, but still. Maybe this is leak week?

    Maybe. I'll need to try making iced tea. Dh mentioned it last year but I never got around to making it.

    Ha, I join the leakers club. My Brita pitcher (filtered water/not sure if they have in the UK) managed to crack somehow. I don't know how - no one confessed, though they usually do. I replaced it for $3.99 - a steal, and my replacement filters fit this updated version.

    Sounds like you got quite a bit of clothing for the money. Smile

    Glad it's not just me. Yead, we have Brita here. It was in Primark, so I don't know how long they will last but I didn't want to spend too much.

    I make sun tea: put tea bags and water into a sealed glass jar. Let it sit in the sun for 4 hours. Voila! Tea. It is great on ice and I leave the container in the refrigerator until it is gone.

    It saves electricity in no boiling water and keeps the house cooler.

    I do four bags to 4-6 cups of water. Sometimes I add mint or lemon sometimes I leave it plain. Make sure the container is clean inside and out and that a lid is used. Could be a fun little project with your daughter: Do you think we can make tea from the sun?

    Not this past Sunday, but a couple Saturdays ago I made brownies. The next morning I was putting some things away in the kitchen .... and found a 1/2 dozen container of eggs sitting out on the counter! I lost 4 eggs. Frown That was about a $2 expense (eggs have gotten so expensive!)
