Day 14

Today I went grocery shopping and I'm proud to say I did really, really well.

Total: $40.38!

That gives me $9 and change for the rest of the week. On Saturday I'm going to a conference and I will need to eat out at lunch (we aren't allowed to bring food into the conference center). So I'll have to spend less than $9 won't I?

Meals for today:

Breakfast was the last of the homemade bread with cinnamon sugar (not on mine because I had the cheese bread and that would just be gross!)

Lunch was yogurts, cheese sticks, apples, graham crackers, leftovers for Hubby.

Dinner was ham and cheese toasted sandwiches, vegetable beef soup from a can and fruit. I bought a black forest ham at the store today and we will be making meals from it all week. Tomorrow will be ham and bean soup and bread. I better go put those beans on to soak right now.

On the gas front, I have almost exactly 1/2 tank of gas and tomorrow is half way through the month. Maybe I'll make it! I was driving home from groceries and an Arco station near us is selling gas for $3.15 a gallon! I haven't seen it that low in ages. And that price is SO close to under $3.00 a gallon. Think we'll get there?

What are gas prices like in your neck of the woods?

My DH filled up for $2.89 today. I couldn't believe it was so low! I filled up last week for $3.77. We're in Georgia.

This morning on my way in to work I noticed the gas price was $2.79! I have a customer plus card so I'd get a 10 cent discount; I'll be filling up for $2.69. Can't even remember the last time I got such a deal on gasoline. How sad is that? I'm guessing it will go up again post-election. I'm in KS.

It looks like the prices are going down pretty fast. Yesterday it was $2.87 here. I didn't have any money to fill up, so I hope it stays down!
