spending like there is no tomorrow

April 28th, 2011 at 01:55 pm

I got gas today, filled up my car with 10+ gal and 2 5 gal cans. I had a .60/gal discount from King Soopers so the cost after discount was $2.99/gal - spent $62.43. My dad filled up to with the discount too, don't know how many gallons he got. I wonder when I will be spending a $100 for a fillup. I was shocked at $50 and now it just seems inevitable that it will be a ridiculous amount every time.

I went to Home Depot and ordered the carpet for the upstairs. Spent $2487.42. I paid a $1000 of it in gift cards that I got discounted at 8%, saving me $80. The rest went on a credit card that pays 5% back on Home Improvement items for this quarter. Now I have to start moving as much stuff out of those rooms as possible.

I fixed my expensive salmon last night and it was delicious, but still not worth $6 for the small portion. I have leftovers for lunch today with a good salad.

I got a rebate check for $4.31 in the mail.

I finished reading my book Dark Slayer by Christine Feehan. Paranormal - very good.

    the price of gas is ridiculous. It is well over $4/gallon here in the wonderful state of Illinois.

    Costco here is still under $4 but only by 2 cents. Almost everyone else is 10 to 20 cents more. I hope we see some relief at the pumps soon, but I sort of doubt it will come.
