When I got off work yesterday afternoon, I decided to spend part of my meager paycheck on enough food to feed my wonderful family Sunday lunch.
I spent $57 and brought home four small bags of food. I bought what I thought would be everything I needed, and enough frozen dinners and pot pies to feed my next week. I splured and bought a box of cereal. Special K with cinnamon and pecans. I paid 4.49 cents for a box that was narrow and short. I'll be lucky to get 5 bowls of cereal out of it. A half gallon of 2% milk was 2.39.
Food is getting so expensive that I may have to rethink eating. But then you can't take your medicine without eating. But that's another story. By the time I buy my medicine for a month, there isn't much left for food. At least gas has dropped a bit. I paid only $3.51 cents a gallon yesterday. Just $3.51 a gallon. What a deal. By the time I paid for my groceries, and bought 3/4 tank of gas, I had spent over $100. That doesn't include the $25 I paid for a haircut at lunch.
I'm one of the last of the big time spenders.
I'm keeping my grandbaby today. I've nicknamed her the Ring Tail Tooter. She is so funny, and she loves to climb. I'm hoping it's cool enough today that we can go outside. She loves it out there.
What necessities have you blown money on this week?
Hope you have a great Saturday. Love one another.
