Wow, that's not bad! We shop at the dirt cheap, pack-your-own-groceries supermarket, and usually you get either 4 or 6 cents off a litre. 20 cents as a special promotion. The only reason they're doing 50 cents off is because it's their 20-year anniversary.
We did it, anyway. DH came along, we used two trolleys, and he carefully added everything up on his phone as we went. He still managed to get the total wrong by $11, mind you! :p The sad part was how EASY it was to spend that much. I was kinda hoping we'd hit $300 and be all "Well, we have everything we need, let's stock up on 8 more roast chickens"... but no. We got plenty, but we'll still need to be careful to make it last four weeks. Oh well, it was kind of fun!
I have a bit of Gainful Employ looming. A few shifts next week at the Academic Dress Hire place, handing out truncheons to graduands; and then in November, a few weeks of scrutineering end-of-year exams at a high school. I'm not sure whether or not it's actually worth it, stress-wise; DH hates having to watch the kids for 4 hours at a time, and while it would have been a no-brainer when he was short on work, he's now swimming in it. (Which is grand, don't get me wrong...)
Hopefully he can adjust his work habits so he catches up on his work later at night instead of watching ER with me; which will free me up for sewing Christmas presents. That'd be good, really. I always mean to sew at night, but when DH offers to flop on the couch with me and stare mindlessly at a screen, I don't generally have the oomph to be virtuous.
And my little income should pay for DH's Christmas present... if I can figure out what to buy him.
