I went grocery shopping today and bought several items:

|November 10 Receipt|
Some of the items I bought (the pudding mix, crushed pineapple, marshmallows) will be for the almsgiving. Some of the canned broth and the canned vegetables are for donating to the food bank (which ever one I decide on). The regular price of the canned broth and vegetables is $.99 per can; they were on sale this week for $.49 each with the purchase of 10 participating items.
November/Almsgiving grocery budget = $200.00
Total spent in Week 2 = $2.00 + $17.70 = $19.70
Total spent on groceries so far this month = $43.48 + $19.70 = $63.18
Amount left in budget = $200-$63.18 = $136.82
Today, I completed my office work for the week and sent it in, since tomorrow is a holiday at my work place.
Today, I also had my daughter re-apply to obtain health insurance through her employer. She had originally applied to receive it when she was first hired. But, since she had to pay for it and she still qualified to be included in my employer-paid health insurance at no charge, I had her change it and kept her on my insurance. But, since the change in government will most probably result in the repeal of existing health care policies, I thought it was prudent to have her apply for her own health insurance. Fortunately, the open enrollment period hadn't closed yet.
Today, I am grateful for:
- Daughter's health insurance open enrollment period was still in effect
- Another warm, sunny day
- Computer continued to work for another week (although there were a couple of "iffy" moments)
- Daughter is on her way home!
- Being able to buy groceries to donate.
How was your day?
