|March 28 Grocery Receipt|
Total spent on groceries today = $.80 + $7.08 = $7.88
March grocery budget = $75
Spent to date = $5.50 + $21.90 + $15.84 + $15.81 + $7.88 = $66.93
Balance left in the budget = $8.07
I will add the $8 to the April grocery budget and use it for stocking up or a splurge!
I boiled three eggs this morning, added the last piece of bacon crumbled up, and made some egg salad. I had an egg salad sandwich and an orange for brunch. There is more egg salad for sandwiches for lunch for the next couple of days, as well. What I was craving was a Big Mac, though! LOL.
For dinner, I cooked some pasta with spaghetti sauce, made with the half a can of pasta sauce I had in the freezer and some of the ground beef I browned the other day. There's enough pasta for tomorrow's dinner (and enough sauce for at least one more meal; will just have to boil more pasta). Had a banana for dessert.
I also went to the library, this afternoon and borrowed two books. Later in the evening, I called my cousin who lives across the street from me and went over to give her a piece of cake. We met on the sidewalk outside her house because she can't invite me to her house since her husband is angry with me (and has been angry with me for years). Remember what I said about family dynamics? LOL.
One of my friends called and we had a nice chat while I watered the front garden. Later, one of my aunts called.
