I've been watching these threads for awhile now, and have enjoyed seeing everyone's savings. I would like to join in, trying to get ready for our trip in April.
$54.64 - Chili's - lunch with my mom and my kids on the last day she was visiting (want)
$71.73 - Lowe's - metal trash can for hot pellet stove ashes (need) and pet stain carpet cleaner to clean up after new puppy (need)
$43.10 - Pet Store - Puppy piddle pads and leash (need)
$49.13 - Office Max - Supplies and folders for homeschooling starting Monday (need/want)
$420.76 - Office Max Online - New printer and ink cartridges because our printer decided to crap out the week before we start homeschooling. Go figure! (need/want)
Not a good day by any means, however, we live 60 miles from the nearest semi-major town and when we go to town we do a lot of our shopping all at once, which is what happened today, the printer was the only "unexpected" expense, although I have been planning for the last few weeks, because the printer has been giving me hassles for a couple weeks. Hopefully the rest of the month will be better.
1/4 - this was another bad day as we went to the another nearby town that we hit many stores
$15.15 - gas in our town (need)
$62.24 - Home Depot wood pellets for the stove (need)
$162.83 - Sam's Club - dog food, bulk groceries, batteries (need)
$44.84 - Sam's gas - filled up here, gas is .30 cents cheaper per gallon. (Need)
$67.42 - Walmart baby gate to keep puppy out of playroom, socks for DS, PJ's for me ti replace ones torn by puppy (needs)
$40.60 - Vet - Meds for puppy (need)
$23.07 - Taco Bell lunch (this is technically a want, but we only get fast food when we go to town and I love Taco Bell)
My next several days will be much better, these first few happen to be during my stick up time of the month.
