Some Spending Averted

January 21st, 2018 at 07:53 pm

My husband and daughter considered going to Jumanji yesterday. I did remind them it was a no spend month. In the end we did some clothes shopping for our daughter, which was more of a need. We also visited the kitties at the pet store. So cute...and tempting!

Three shirts were bought at Target, spent about $60 on those (not frugal), in addition to lotion, laundry detergent and windex. I had a $50 gift card, used two cartwheel offers and there was 15% off clothing if I used our Red Card. So, out of pocket we spent $25.80.

Today we went grocery shopping. Final total at the commissary was $151.26. Pet food was $21 and Vitamin C was $8.77. The rest was food. We bought salmon and chicken this week, so that wasn't exactly frugal. We also needed lots of veggies which are key to our healthy diets.

Still no alcohol has been purchased! That's three weekends in a row. My husband did mention it last night, but he is committed to the diet for the month.

    I heard Jumanji is really good though. I plan on watching it as well, but not until it has reached rental. Chicken is frugal. Salmon is not, but it tastes soo good.

    Tabs, I'm sure we will see Jamanji at some point. And yes, if I'm going to eat fish, I do prefer salmon! Smile

    I am waiting very impatiently for Jumanji to come out on DVD. I want to see it in the theater, but I can't justify the expense. The last time I saw a movie in the theater was 2012.
