I spent a quiet morning relaxing, catching up on news, putting away laundry, etc. My neighbor called and we had a nice chat. In the afternoon, I went back to the grocery store to buy more coffee and a few other items:
|January 29 Groceries|
I bought two more packets of coffee for my daughter, a loaf of bread and a package of cold cuts to make sandwiches for my lunches during the week, and a packet of shrimp. It's kind of funny how I looked at some of the same things, yesterday - the loaf of bread, the cold cuts, and the shrimp - and didn't feel like buying them, but decided to do so, today.
2 packets of coffee @$4.99 = $9.98
1 loaf of bread = $1.00
Roast beef cold cuts (7 oz.) = $1.99
Shrimp @ $4.99/lb = $5.99
Total = $18.96
|January 29 Receipt|
January grocery budget = $75
Spent to date = $5.12 + $4.39 + $5.25 + $6.28 + $14.47 +$18.96 = $54.47
Balance remaining = $20.53
I hope butter goes on sale in the next week or two. I am down to half a pound of butter; I took out one 1/4 lb. stick of butter to keep in the fridge for use this week. Which means I just have one 1/4 lb. stick of butter left in the freezer. Butter was priced $3.79/lb. for store brand and I am holding out to see if I can get some on sale.
After I came home and put away the groceries, I went for a walk. Today, I took a slightly different route. When I came back from my walk, I ate a sandwich before I lay on the sofa to watch news and that kept the shakes at bay! I fell asleep for about 30 minutes and had a cup of tea after I woke up.
I had taken out a packet of pre-cooked roast beef from the freezer and kept it in the fridge to thaw, but I decided to cook the shrimp for dinner, instead. But first, I had to do the dishes that had piled up in the sink and on the counters! Then I put some rice to boil and cooked the shrimp curry. I wanted to cook some green beans, too, but I felt tired and made a cucumber salad, instead:
|Dinner: Rice, Shrimp Curry, Cucumber Salad|
Cantaloupe for dessert.
Today, I am grateful for:
- A sunny, warm day
- A nice walk in the sunshine
- More coffee on sale for my daughter
- Phone call from my cousin
- Chatting with my daughter
