Jan. 3- , $86.75 groceries Jan. 4- Jan. 5- $6.78, chocolate and a drink Jan. 6- $18.80 Starbucks and pizza Jan. 7- Jan. 8- $0.69 Krispy Kreme $5ish Starbucks Today was not the best day, for a variety of reasons. Got some upsetting news and have had a headache. So. Last year Prudence used to say FIDO--Forget It, Drive On. That's what my plan is. The next few days should look up some and I'm going to do better. Part of what will help me is that we're...
Jan. 3- , $86.75 groceries (budgeted) Jan. 4- Jan. 5- $6.78, chocolate and a drink Jan. 6- $2.79 Starbucks $16.01 pizza out Total for the day- $18.80 Even though we have “eating out” in the budget, I’m counting the pizza tonight as un-necessary. We had food here in the house. I just wanted a quick supper that I didn’t have to cook because I was anxious to watch college basketball. PS—Carolina pulled it out in overtime, in case you were...

Bought DS's friend a birthday present (budgeted) and ended up finding a deal on that, so I was glad. However, I picked up DS a GatorAde at Walgreen's because he was thirsty (should have remembered something from home!...
Jan. 3- Jan. 4- Never even left the house today; makes it easier not to spend. Plus, it's cold : outside, so it felt good to be in our toasty home. DS and I dipped some pretzels in chocolate this afternoon for a snack, and that was nice!

There are other types of fish that are cheaper. Try frozen filets. One of the best ways to cook...
Jan. 3- As I said before, I did spend at the grocery store today, but it was well within the budget and necessary. Good luck, everyone!
