I was going to use a cart instead of a basket so I could put all my goods in it. Well here in Winnipeg you need to put a quarter in the cart to go in the store..because some people like to keep these carts for ... I don't know... looking like bag ladies...anyway.. Well, do you think I had .25 freaking cents in my purse? NO. I would have if I would not have just come from the Library where they charged me a 1.30 late fee for the return of my books...bastards. One day late. Yeah I know. I should keep some money tucked in my shoes.
I was sitting in the truck at Safeway looking for a quarter. I cleaned out my purse, then I started looking under the seats....and finally I remembered ..hey I have some coin in my "drink keeper thing" where I toss in small change. I found a quarter. Holy moly was I happy, because this was supposed to be a new journey for me. Note to self: keep more than a buck on you. geez...
I made a menu this morning of next weeks meals. Then put a grocery list together. I checked all my cupboards and fridge beforehand and made sure I was not duplicating anything. So far so good. But I forgot about tonight..I guess we will have to order Pizza...oh my how did that happen?
Now just let's see if I can stay out of the stores for an entire week. It's getting embarrassing because I think some of the staff think I work there.
I am keeping track of my spending on the Excel spreadsheet I made today ... plus I made a menu thing on it too. It's fun being back on excel ... just like the good old days when I was working.
