A few people have told me that they found the cash system “freeing.” I’m waiting for that feeling. Friday I did our shopping and then wrapped it up at the Farmer’s Market yesterday morning. So here’s the general breakdown of where this week’s $140 went. It certainly did go pretty quickly.
-20 (gas for Explorer)
-25 ( @ Walgreens for 2 bags diapers, Off Clip- ons, lunch meat, baking soda, ice cream, and contact solution)
-22 (Farmers Market for lettuce, tomato, squash, cucumber, beets, swiss chard, sugar snap peas, and green beans)
-3 (McDonalds for poopy prize)
-31 (Lowes for dirt, Miracle Gro, more plants, Jeremy says he’s cutting me off on plants. 🙁 But why?? )
-36 (Groceries @ Harris Teeter and Food Lion. Jeremy got a Harris Teeter gift card for $10 this week which totally made the difference. I didn’t count that in our expenses, but it did help me get what we needed.)
So, we have about three dollars left, but the fridge and the gas tank are full and we get our next allowance on Tuesday!! So far so good. Now, to kill the dastardly slugs and get some payback from this garden. My garden has more pooled beer than a frat house. 🙂
