    Default what i DID spend my money on today....

    we have no-spend threads....and no eat-out threads....and frugal day today threads....

    how about a thread on what you DID spend your hard-earned money on today.....it doesn't necessarily have to be a 'frugal' purchase...(come on-do we KNOW of any other kind....lol)...just whatever came between you and your dollars (whether you physically got an item or paid a bill...)

    what did it cost you to get out of bed today ?? >>>>>>>>>>

    Nothing today because I will not be going anywhere...
    But yesterday-
    I paid for Susan's lunch at Children's hospital - Lunch for her and myself came to 18.90 cents
    Also bought a gift for Braedon- Duplo- $22.40...... OUCH
    I think this is called Stress Spending...

    Tonight I am eating out (fast food) because I am working a double shift and I just need to get away from the desk a bit for my sanity, and because brown bagging lunch and supper is too much for my organizational skills when I have as few leftovers as I do right now. But I have a frugal coupon!

    Last night, however, I was so bored at work I dropped in at Amazon.com. I don't buy many books, but I spent about $9, getting a couple of used out-of-print (probably) sci-fi novels I've wanted to read. James White's All Judgment Fled for .92 + shipping, and Piers Anthony's Prosto Plus for 4.00/free shipping. The last I just heard about - a dentist is abducted and takes up galactic dentistry. It's reported to be hilarious.

    great idea for a challenge - I need to see things in b&w.

    Hollyhill - sometimes stress spending happens - you stress spend on family and friends, right? Makes sense to me. Be kind to yourself, life is throwing a lot at you right now!!

    Today I'm going to a wedding - so hopefully I won't be spending! But yesterday I bought some "interview clothes" for Dh. Three pairs of pants, a dress shirt and a belt (all 50% plus 40% off) and used a gift card from Christmas, it was $56.00 (regular $350).

    Then I bought the wedding present and card, $11.50 ($130 regular, a large part was free as part of a work contest) and a birthday present for family member (June) for $18 ($50 regular).

    I did indulge in a cast iron cake pan, it makes little tea cakes in the shapes of flowers for $27 ($45 regular). I currently have a train pan and a mini pumpkin pan. I'm waiting for the gingerbread house pan to come out. Cake pans are my weakness.

    Today I spent my Flower Show money on 2- 1.75 liter bottles of Rum. Coconut and Black Cherry flavored. I'm set for some summer fun in the pool this year! Floating around and drinking a nice cool rum drink......ahhhhh. ( I might share but I dunno) LMAO!!

    I also refilled my 5 gallon water jug today and I bought 2 pizzas. One for todays supper and one for next weeks supper.

    Thats it.

    I went to Walgreen's and bought:
    2 rolls of paper towels @.59/each
    2 bottles of dish soap @.79/each
    pantiliners 3.79
    2 packages of 10 pair socks for dh 8.00
    I used a gift card that I had gotten for rebate items last month...so no money spent out of pocket

    Also, we are still going to buy 3lbs of lettuce salad for feeding hockey players after the game tonight.
