Groceries: $19.88 ~ Well within budget to make up for the overspending last week.
Grocery Funds Remaining: $103.92
Dining Out: $0 ~ Doing good on this one, especially since I had been treated out Thurs. night by my Facebook friend visiting from Vancouver Island, BC. Thanks again, Carol !
Dining Out Funds Remaining: $20.50
Misc. Spending: $37.91 ~ Hair Cut alone was $30.00 but I only get one 2x a Year, along with another little misc. bill. Um, best be careful the rest of the month.
Misc. Funds Remaining: $4.89
Funds Remaining for the Month of September: $225.96
Oh yes, the $20.00 I had set aside for Post Crossing this month? There is still $10.00 and change remaining in that envelope, so I am still within budget there. This amount will be going down a bit this week as I believe I am eligible to send out a couple more Post Cards.
Other then not bringing any extra money in, and my "Crabby Cabbie" having gone a little overboard by bringing home 3 Tim Horton Coffees this week, I think we are doing pretty good from when I began this Challenge HERE. I must remember though there are still 15 more days to go .... I can do it, I just know I can .... or NOT ! Even if I am pretty close, as Murphy is pretty good at throwing a wrench in on life at times, I will be happy.
Not too long after I had finished washing up and cleaning everything up from the canning, there was someone at the door. What a surprise, as it was my Cousin Linda up from Southampton dropping around ....
Linda, Rick and their very cute 3 year old Granddaughter actually came in and had a bit of visit with me. What a nice break that was.
It was really getting to be quite late in the day by the time our visit had came to an end, but that didn't stop me as I had to replenish ....
I am hoping for great success with this dehydrator as I have more plans for it in the way of onions, carrots, tomatoes .... the possibilities are endless ! Of course I will be using this on the cheaper Hydro rate hours, as it has to run anywhere from 5 to 12 hours at a time. I am pretty sure it doesn't suck back too much hydro, but just the same hydro is hydro and not cheap.
Speaking of which ....Holy Moly gas prices the past week ! $1.38 per litre in Ferndale when I picked Mom up yesterday, and $1.34 to $1.35 most other places. They just keep sneaking them up, up, up ... before you know it they will have many people not being able to afford to drive themselves to work, ending up on assistance, as wages certainly can't keep up with the rising prices of fuel and necessities like food ! *Sigh* an ongoing problem it is.
It is going on to 10:00 pm, andI have yet to make up our bed fresh. I best get a move on if I want to get myself to bed at some point this evening, "Just North of Wiarton & South of the Checkerboard."
