More errands

January 24th, 2006 at 07:47 pm

Since the first of the year, I've been doing so very well when I run errands. I've been able to save more than I spend on several occassions when I get groceries or stuff for the house. Here are the deals I got today:

Walgreens: $4.09 - saved $4.45
Albertsons: $4.97 - saved $4.72
Big Lots: $ 14.04 - we found more of the pasta for .59 per pound. We didnt find the same shape, so got angel hair instead. I am sure it will be just as good. We stocked up and bought ten pounds.

The food total for this month so far is $332.99. That includes dining out. Though this is high, I'm going to use it for a baseling/starting point and it will only go down from here.

I spent $5.22 at work on coffee and a bagel in celebration of the deadline I met yesterday. Not too many complaints so far. I think it should be quiet the rest of the week.

I got a stack of magazines from a friend at work. After I look at them, I'm going to pass them on to another friend. I like this sort of recycling.

Other frugal things today - dinner was leftovers. I bought crackers and micro popcorn to keep in my desk at work for those days when I get the munchies. This way I will avoid any temptation from the vending machines. I brought water from home and walked on my lunch hour. Brought my lunch and avoided the vending machines for one more day.

Plan to walk again at lunch tomorrow. Part of this gradual getting into shape thing for the new year.
