Still searching for a lunchbox
Chanukah gift items (only a couple of small things, Chanukah is a minor holiday)
Well, I didn't do so good this month-I just can't seem to keep myself from wanting to eat while driving, and I'm not packing enough food for school.
I think I've figured out some things that will help with next month though, I took out 10 for the week-that way I won't feel like I need to spend enough to justify using my CC when making lunch purchases, and bought some kosher sliced turkey to make sandwiches for school (we almost NEVER buy lunchmeat). So I've made my menu and my plan.
It's got to-I've no Idea how we're going to pay everything this upcoming month. Dp did just get a raise which is wonderful, but it doesn't kick in until Dec, and she will end up using most of it to pay travel expenses to her upcoming grad school stint- She's doing a low-res MFA program, which will be great because it DIRECTLY applies to her job (and her love of writing), BUT she alredy has a ton of student loans (many years in grad school working towards a PHd), and this is going to add more.
