Me oh My
Part of me worried if it was a depression re-lapse...perhaps my pills aren't working.
Truth be told, I am a bit on the worried side-Bill has to have hernia surgery at some point soon. He's to meet with the surgeon in 2 weeks. This basically means 3-4 weeks of not being employed for him, which means that we'll have to pinch pennies, save as much as possible...because without his 400-1,000 a week paycheck...heh. I get paid every 2 weeks.
Anyways....I'm having my period. Heavier it is, the more exhausted I get. I'm exhausted.
At some point last night my power went out...huh.
I've come up with an idea...it will be time-consuming and annoying, but it would be helpful for me to see where I'd actually be saving money or no.
There are 3 locations in town I can get groceries/cat food: Walmart, Fareway, and Quillin's.
I have a notebook, and figured tomorrow when my mum is around, we could price-check prices on things I regularly buy. Apple Juice, Fancy Feast, frozen veggies, Hamburger Helper, and TP....those are usually purchased on a weekly basis, and especially if I have coupons.
It'll take work...but really...I should know how much Bill and I are spending on items...and if the 'one stop shop' is actually a money saver vs. shopping around.
One stop shopping can be a blessing but also a bane. If a coupon for an item made it less expensive elsewhere vs. Walmart...I'd be much happier. I really don't *like* spending so much money at Walmart....but they do have more fancy feast varieties...and I'll be honest and say I could never afford all the items that Bill and I consume at the Co-Op.
Right now my focus is to save as much money as possible...and I guess that means sacrificing some things...stocking up on Hamburger Helper when there is a coupon (it's a cheap meal...you can doctor it up with veggies and meat other than chicken or hamburger)...and stuff like that.
Anyways...enough of my so, totally, adult-like posting. :P
I had a dream where I saw a tornado. It scared the crap out of me.
My dream was pretty lucid and at times freaked me out. All the details evade me...and really I don't want to remember much!
Ok, I think I'm going to bake cookies. Yup...bake cookies before work.
