No spend day

June 2nd, 2017 at 06:07 am

This morning I recycled some jars and dropped off some donations.

Later, I baked raisin biscuits and tomato scones. They will be for snacks.

Yesterday I checked my eligibility for a credit card balance transfer. The check said I would be accepted, however, I haven't applied in case I don't get approved. Also, I'd rather use a balance transfer for my highest credit card, and that balance transfer doesn't run out until October.

I was going to go shopping on Sunday, but hubby made me realise that we don't need anything, so I'll hold off another week.

Yesterday we were in Edinburgh for an appointment and I
spent 18.69 at Burger King. It was unplanned. However, walking through Edinburgh is exhausting and we all needed it (we had some snacks with us).

My budget app alerted me that I'm close to overspending on groceries. I've only spent 72.xx,but it told me to lower my daily average.

    You do a grand job of meal planning. It would be so helpful if DH would be willing to inventory the pantry to create a list of meals that could be created from items at hand or in need of a small packet of meat ,fish, egg, cheese, legume, or lentil. I learned if I named dishes after favorite cartoon super heroes, even DH enjoyed lentil stew poured over a baked potato or fat slices of cook yams.

    Snafu, I like the idea of naming dishes after cartoon heroes!

    That's a great sounding app to let you know about your grocery expenditures.

    The app letting you know your daily average is high sounds like a great tool!
