  • Gas (up, up and away....)
    on Apr 27, 2011
    Should I be thankful that gas is still under $4.00 a gallon here?  Today I spent $66.02 filling up my tank.  Gas was $3.89 a gallon.  I wish that $66 would last me longer than 8-10 days. ...

  • Look at all this money I've spent!
    on Apr 21, 2011

  • Food Costs, They Are A Risin'
    on Apr 7, 2011
    Sigh.I went to Aldi yesterday.  Regular readers here know how much I love Aldi.  It seems they have raised their prices in the last couple weeks.  Milk was up $0.30.  Lettuce was up $0.20.  Other items were up $0.10.  It...

  • Gas and a Great Deal at Rite Aid
    on Mar 31, 2011
    Yesterday I spent $1.04 at Rite Aid and bought a container of Excedrin and 2 bottles of Hydrogen Peroxide.  I got a great deal because I was able to use two coupons and a BOGO deal... otherwise my total would have been closer to $10!Not such a g...
  • Aldi Keeps Me Under Budget - And I Have A Question For You!
    on Mar 31, 2011
    Let's review where I stand in my $50 challenge.  If you are following along on my $50 a month grocery challenge, here are the stats:  I carried $29.83 cash over from January and February into March and added it to the $50 that is budgeted,...
  • More Spending
    on Mar 28, 2011
    I am learning something from this little experiment of mine - I am a lousy record keeper!  Somehow, I always fall behind in reporting my expenses here.  It isn't that I don't care, it is just that I never seem to have all my receipts in one...
