Office day

June 21st, 2005 at 08:57 pm

Drove into work today. Went early and stopped at the Walgreens on the way. Picked up Jif Peanut Butter on sale 2 18 oz jars for $3 and Egg Noodles pasta on sale 3 12oz bags for $1.00. Paid $4.00 total.

Met a friend for lunch at Applebees - $8.50

After work stopped at Longs and got the battery recharger I got the raincheck for on Saturday and bought 1 18 oz jar of Skippy PB for .99 - .60 coupon or .39 cents total. Very good deal. Smile Spent 22.23 total.

Was proud of myself for not stopping at a fast food place on the way home.

I read a book called The Average Family's Guide to Financial Freedom by Bill and Mary Toohey that I got from the library. Very good book. I recommend it. Basically the book is about how they saved almost half their income and still managed to live decently and raise kids. Lot's of good thought provoking ideas.

If you want to read an article about them where they discuss their book and philosophy go to this link:

    Thanks for the book suggestion. I noticed they had no mortgage to worry about. That would sure make it easier for us to save a bundle of cash around here each month. Wink
