On Wednesday I decided to run some errands in town. I try and bunch a number of things together so not to waste gas and time.
The first order of business was the bank; had a cheque to deposit and get the cash out for the week. Next popped into the corner store to pick up dh's Lotto Max ticket for him. He gets one every week and this past week won a huge, whopping $2, so that "only" cost me $4.
Next went to the Post Office, as I wanted them to hold our mail while we are on vacation. That cost me $22.50 (or there abouts) plus I decided to buy a 6 pack of international stamps, which came to around $12.50. So, so far I have spent $39.
I call in at the gas station and fill up the 25 litre gas tank for the lawn tractor and put gas in my car. Got gas at $1.263 a litre and spent $50 there. Now up to $89.
Call into the grocery store to pick up a couple of things, including ice cream, as dh loves his ice cream. Ended up spending $35 there???
On the way home I called into the coffee shop as I needed something sweet and picked up an orange cruller (click link for recipe) so that cost $1.
So all in all in less than an hour I ended up spending $125 just like that and have very little to show for it (SIGH)
By the time I give dh some money for the week and put my money in the jars, I am left with $65 to last me until a week on Friday ((SIGH)) Guess I am going to have to try and be thrifty this week!!
