I went grocery shopping on Friday and spent exactly $73.00, not often that happens, an exact dollar amount. Had $11.89 in coupons savings. Went to No Frills and stocked up on their 15 bottle packs of water for 88 cents, plus they had an in store special on Folgers ground coffee for $5.88 for the 900 gram container, plus I had $1 off coupons.
This week we had to clean out a closet as part of the decluttering challenge. I cleaned out the spare bedroom closet last week. I may try and get something else cleaned out today if I have chance.
For the financial challenge we had to donate some money. I decided to "give" in the form of a $5 Tim Hortons gift card to a mentally challenged individual that I know goes into a Tim Hortons location all the time. I left the card with the manager who promised to pass it onto this guy. The card will pay for three cups of coffee for him.
I must admit I found that part of the challenge hard as I haven't been anywhere where I could do something like this, this week. Plus it's been a tight week this week, so didn't have too much in the way of extra money. I would have loved to see his face though when they give him the card.
We're in for some bitter cold weather in the minus 20's so it's time for soups and stews. Made broccoli soup using this recipe and am looking for a good green bean and ham soup recipe as I pulled out some ham from the freezer.
Thought this was amusing....
For those of you who are not Canadian, its a total white out, and we still think Spring is coming....
