New Shoes, A Movie, Gas, and Groceries

November 6th, 2016 at 06:23 pm

It was a spendy Sunday.

We took our younger daughter to see Dr. Strange. Great movie! I don't regret the movie tickets. I had allocated cash towards this expense. I do regret the pop and popcorn though...I should have put a snack in my purse instead. My husband would have bought the soda either way. At least we went during matinee pricing.

I bought new running shoes. My last pair lasted about three months. I poked a hole with my big toe, and the soles were very worn. This time I bought the same pair, but decided to go up a half size. I've been walking A LOT...easily 5 miles a day. At that rate, one does go through shoes much faster. The shoes cost me $95.99 at the Post Exchange...no sale tax and probably 30% cheaper than buying at a traditional store.

We filled up on gas and bought groceries today through the next payday. Groceries were $168.81 including laundry detergent, kleenex, cat food and a multipurpose cleaner. The gas was $33.85.

I might get my hair cut tomorrow, otherwise I don't expect any other spending tomorrow. Right now I don't see much spending this week!

    OMG I am sooo jealous! We actually had a parents night out (paid the YMCA $50) and bought tickets for Dr Strange last night for the 5:15 pm show but we couldn't get seats together so we gave up and got our money back. OMG OMG OMG. So jealous. I wear my shoes out fast and they are brooks adrenalines at $120/each. But good shoes are important and it makes a world of difference on my feet.

    We spent the night at home binge watching tv and just talking.

    What would you say the level of magic, etc. is in Dr Strange? I'm trying to decide if I want to see it or not. I'm iffy okay with the level of magic on Once Upon a Time, but turned off Alice in Wonderland 20 minutes into the pilot episode due to the level of "dark" magic being used.

    I didn't see Alice in Wonderland. I guess I didn't focus on it, but I'm guessing it wouldn't appeal to you because there is the dark and good to the magic. I'd look for reviews, FT.
