We received a bill from the building supply company for the materials delivered. I compared the bill slips with the delivery slips and discovered we had been overcharged for blocks. I took both receipts in and was credited for $10.11.
I stuck to my $30 grocery budget this week. I used coupons toward milk, lettuce, frozen pizza, and frozen fries. That amount also includes purchasing a pack of red onion sets for the garden. I planted 50 and passed the others on to family members who also garden.
My mother gave me a vase of flowers. They were used in a wedding and then used in a church service. The original arrangement started to fall apart. She saved the best to make individual arrangements.
I put out some Halloween decorations once again using items I already had on hand. I have things that I love so I happily use them over and over again.
I planned leftovers for lunch on the day that I worked. Having a meal already planned removes the temptation to pick up something from a fast food place or the grocery store.
I put together a simple birthday gift of lotion and candles using items from my pantry. These items were free or very cheap so I had little out of pocket cost. It made a nice, useful gift though.
