$60 and corn

I am giving you a $60 update.
So far so good. I went to Smiths again yesterday and spent almost $18 on bread, toothpaste, saltines, apples, corn chips, and pasta. The last 2 are for my dinner swap tomorrow night. So that puts me 1/3 of the way through the month and $25 spent. I think I will be alright. It has been so interesting to notice how much I say to myself "I'll just run down to Smiths (it is 8 blocks away) and pick that up."

If anyone needs a horrible laugh, my friends Joe and Lindsay's blog has a good post right now. It involves a one year old, corn kernels, and nostrils. Click to the left on their blog if you need to think your child is an angel today.

I'm impressed. My problem is when there is a super great deal I feel like I need to buy a ton of it.

Hey, thanks a ton for letting us use your outlet and yard the other day for play group. We definitely missed you. I'm pretty sure your neighbors were wondering what the heck we were doing at your house.

Great job on the $60. If I had a pantry like that I might only go shopping every other month or so :) Just kidding. I don't think far enough in advance to plan!
