I finally got my rear into the dr's for some meds. Let's hope that I'm back to speed in a few days.


snacked at my parents' house

Hot dogs
Baby Carrots

I asked Pat to stop at a specific gas station to get 3 gallons of milk ($1.95/gal) on Monday. He forgot and stopped at the village store and paid $3.05/gal!!!!!!!!!! Luckily he only bought 2 at that price and not the 3 that I asked him to. I let him know we'd go without milk for a week before I paid that much for a gallon of milk. A convenience store he had to pass on the way to the village usually has milk on sale so that was a better place to stop. (I don't think their regular price would be $3.09) And here I thought my kids had gained my frugal tendencies and knowledge by osmosis. Maybe it's time to break out the wet noodles.

Tom went to the next town over to get my prescription filled. I asked him to run into the Big M next door to the drug store while he was waiting for it to be filled. They were having a 10 for $10 mix and match sale. One of the things they had was half gallons of orange juice that I've been craving! They also had some decent priced fruit which we've been out of for a few days. He says he spent about $27.

Payperiod Total...$83.10
Year Total (starting 9/24/04)...$619.27
