School Supplies & More

January 30th, 2017 at 01:58 pm

Today's big spending was on a binder for school. The cost of it was $7.21 with tax at Walmart. It wasn't the cheapest option. She chose one that she know will hold up for the semester. She is a bit hard on them!

My daughter's new debit card for her checking account arrived today. We have now activated it. She also deposited her two checks received at Christmas into her new account, using our mobile app. We also ordered checks. Luckily they just send 40 at a time now. I wonder how long it may take for her to use those up! The checks are free through our bank.

I ate leftover fried rice with tofu for lunch. I think I cooked the tofu just fine. I did use turmeric to color it, so it did remind me of having eggs in it. My daughter decided she didn't like the different texture of tofu with the rice though. Lucky for her we are just having pasta and broccoli for dinner which she does like.

We did go to the store last night and picked up several items, primarily cereal and milk. And two snacks. I think there was something else too. We spent about $14.

Oh, and I had to buy fuel for my van! I was literally on empty when we went to the grocery store. I only filled it up halfway primarily because the pump was VERY slow. I spent $20.02.

Isn't it hard to believe January is about over?

    I agree...can't believe January is about over. It seems like this month flew by. How much was gas per gallon? We are between $1.99 and $2.05 here, but who knows when they will jack it up 20 cents on a whim. I swear they have a phone tree.

    I use a lot of tumeric in our meals since I am trying to quit using salt.

    rob, I think gas was around $2.19 here, although I buy the mid grade gas so that cost me $2.37 a gallon. Maybe I will luck out and the price will go down when I have to fill up again!

    We're significantly higher at 2.35 or more. It's been a long January for us. I think the combination of having DH home and me not in London has made things drag.

    Our gas is right around $2.25 right now for the cheap stuff.
