Today is Wednesday and I have the day off, which is nice because I have several things, paperwise, that I need to work on today. I worked yesterday and I'm working the next two days, so today will give me a bit of a mental break and I can get some other things done.
Today was bill paying day for me. I have expenses during the month of January that I don't normally have every month, which falls under the periodic expenses section of my budget. Auto Insurance, license plate renewal, Insurance membership yearly renewal, are all things I paid today. There was a statewide auto Insurance increase, which raised the cost of my insurance about $20 or $6.00 per month. seems like everything but gas is going up in price right now, but I'm still happy over the price of gas, which is $1.65 here right now.
Grocery Store Run
Since I was off this morning, I stopped off at Fresh & Low to pick up some things. I'm glad I did as I went in there to buy some flour tortillas to make my daughter some pinwheels. I found a great deal. They had the Chi-Chi's flour tortillas priced at $1.60, but they had coupons on them for $1.00 off a package. How great is that? I love it when products have peelies on them. I paid 60¢ for each package and bought 9 of them. I also picked up corn chips, chili beans, black olives, pepperoni, batteries, potato chips, and feminine products and ended up spending $36.75.
Tonight for dinner I am going to make pizzas. I have several cans of Pillsbury crescent rolls on hand that I bought for 25¢ on close out, because they are close to the expiration date, and I am going to use those for the crust. I already have spaghetti sauce on hand and I bought pepperoni and black olives this morning to top them with.
I'll leave you with this thought this afternoon...
Simply live by the rule of not spending money you don't have.
