There is a question at the end of this post that I’d LOVE for you to answer. Will you?
As is often the case when I commit to giving you daily insights into my life, I have failed because, let’s just face it. You don’t really care that much AND after the third or fourth meal in a row that I photograph, my husband just rolls his eyes.
But, since I am determined to finish out the month under $500, here’s an update. With 10 days till payday, we have about $80 left. I don’t know exactly because using the CASH system is just flat out NOT for me. I have tried and failed at it innumerable times. I am much stingier with the invisible shrinking debit bottom line than I am with the cold hard green stuff sitting in my wallet. That green stuff is meant to be spent with immediacy.
Do you need cash? Sure, I have some.
Do I want that tiny thing? Well super. I have cash. I will just buy it and the bank will never know.
So we are at roughly $80. Actually, we would be at 0, but I made an exception. Normally, I would include over the counter medicine in our consumables budget of groceries, toiletries, etc., but unbeknowst to our budget, fall pollens came early, and with them, allergy season. SO, my husband went to CVS and spent $80 stocking himself up on Zyrtec and Sudafed and Neti Pot supplies.
Since early allergies mean early expenses, I am moving the money around and not taking this from our $500. (ALSO, do not tell him, but I am actually REJOICING a tiny bit that maybe this means he won’t be suffering from the annual anniversary debilitating sinus infection in October–since he is suffering now, poor guy.)
Anywho, here are some photos of meals and purchases and randomness. Enjoy.
So that’s that. I am REALLY tired of cooking and being creative with meals. I am really tired of eating meatless meals. I am really tired in general.
Actually, for the four of you that are still reading this post, I have a little confession to make. I might stop writing about food. Aren’t there a lot of great budget real food bloggers? AND, aren’t there better purist food bloggers who have more genuine conviction to offer this subject? This bandwagon is feeling pretty crowded, so I might just jump off. That’s not to say we won’t keep eating somewhat real, but when it comes to writing, I am just wondering if maybe this isn’t what God wants me focusing on.
If you faithfully read this blog, THANK YOU! Truly!! I would love to hear some feedback to help me as I seek some direction for my writing. What has kept you reading The Poorganic Life?
