So Far So Good

September 13th, 2009 at 11:31 am

The weekend has been great as far as keeping spending to a minimum. We have $32 left in the checking account and payday is Tuesday. I completely expect tomorrow to be a no spend day!! I must say it feels good to be in control of the money.

Yesterday, we picked up $17 worth of items at Walmart. Only $8 of that was an unnessary eyeglass case for our youngest daughter. It is a hard case with a magnetic closure and she'll have it for a long time. The free one given with the eyeglasses is soft and has a open side. Not the best kind for a child!

Today, I ran to SuperTarget and bought minimum groceries to get us through the next two days. Much of it will cover lunches for the remainder of the week, too! I spent $18.

On Tuesday...I will make a much bigger grocery run. I think I will aim for buying for about 10 days. I guess I need to start writing a meal plan and grocery list!

Right now, I'm off to make mini loaves of banana bread and jello in case the kids need a snack! After that, I'm thinking about finding some items to list on ebay. I'm dreading that though.

    I bought kid's glasses at Walmart this summer and they gave us a hard case. I noticed that at my optometrist's office they hand out cases sort of willy-nilly, not even paying attention to whether they have put one frame company's product into the case of another company's. I'm thinking most shops would give whatever type case you want, if they have it. Ask and we shall receive?

    The glasses were from JC Penney's for $50, and no they didn't have any other type of case at our store when I asked. Darn! But it is always good to ask.

    I would have been better off at Walmart for glasses, but I didn't know about their deal until after we ordered ours from JC Penney. Good to know they offer the free case, since that would have sweetened the deal even more! But, I'm not going to cry over $8.

    That's a great deal on glasses!
