This and that

Made $300.00 last night selling the rest of our firewood. We priced it low as we really just wanted to get rid of it. The total made from firewood is $450.00. Not bad, not bad at all. Ironic that is the exact amout for the guitar that my son wants for Christmas...

Speaking of Christmas, I did some online shopping today. Found some video games on sale and bought six for around $100.00. All had great reviews. I love to shop online in the comfort of my own home. Coffee in one hand and credit card (pd. off monthly) in another.

Rented Last Chance Harvey from Redbox yesterday. It was pretty good. Little bit of a tear jerker tho...

Adding $43.06 to the grocer tally. Total now is $69.30. Shouldn't have to grocery shop til next Tues. except to get milk.

My 5 for today are:
1. seperate hamburger into smaller packages
2. reverse ceiling fans
3. make cookies for church function
4. clean hall bathroom
5. make hair appt. for son and myself

Chase points and grocery points

I said in my last post I was going to start to keep track of my grocery spending on SA. I spent $26.30 buying hambuger and a few loss leaders. I saved $3.00 with coupons. I am going to wm today and price matching Kroger as we don't have one near us.

Redeemed a few of our Chase points yesterday for Christmas gifts. Starbucks for two nieces. Hope they enjoy them.

Friday my little dog is getting her teeth and ears cleaned. Should cost around $100.00. Not bad I think because she is funky! Hopefully the teeth cleaning should help as her breath is unbearable.

I have a lot to do today, but will only post the top five.
1. Errands (gas and wm)
2. Clean out fridge
3. Put away camping gear
4. Clean master bathroom
5. Reconcile the checkbook

Everyone have a great Tuesday...

I learned today that Taste of Home had some cookbooks on sale on their website. I found several I wanted and several for inexpensive Christmas gifts. When I went to check out over half were already sold out. Oh well...

I really need to start posting more to keep myself accountable, and it's neat to look back and see my past in writing.

I also hope to keep better track of my grocery spending. I don"t really know how much I spend on food tho I am a frugal shopper. I shop sales and combine coupons with those sales. Maybe I'll post here of my grocery spending and coupon savings...
