Hi gals yesterday spent $10 copay doc, I had $37 to carry over from last week on groceries. Today finally got to go grocery shopping spent 112/137 for the week but normally we eat at restaurant/get takeout twice on the weekend and we aren't this weekend as the boys under the weather so I had to spend more, that's OK tho it saves more on overall spending!!

emmakate7: Southwest salads are delicious. In fact, all garden salads are delicious. Massage sounds fun and relaxing, especially if a Mauser. Sorry that you're having to help clean out your friend's house. Eh, that would be said. I can't remember if I congratulated you on your daughter's up coming engagement; seemed like it blended in with the death of your friend. So, congratulations.

mothernature: Thank you. Interesting, I had never heard of the Big Bass game, which is surprising since I do go to casinos some. Not for sure how that works, but that is okay. Congrats on your no spend day. Good job on your five (5) low spend days.

CocoaDiva43: Congrats on your six (6) no spend days and six (6) no drive days. Enjoy your celebrations with your hubby on the dates that you guys met and your Anniversary date. I know, time is really flying by. Glad that you caught up on your rest.

claire7771: Hi. Thank you for sharing your pancake recipe with us. Good job with your grocery budget. Congrats on your no spend day. Hope your boys are feeling better now. Good job not eating out.

katiecoupon13: Eh, I got behind myself. Congrats on your no spend day and no drive day.

I shopped clearance, used a promo code discount and points to get a free pair for myself.
  • I purchased (2) 8 ct Colgate 360 toothbrushes, (1) 26 ct Gillette Custom3 razors and (3) 24 ct boxes of Scotch glue sticks for $83.24 - 20% discount code ($16.65) - $25 Amex statement credit = $41.59/6 = $6.93/each + free shipping. The 26ct of razors is $27 alone. The order arrived the next day.
  • I went to the dentist today. The bill came out to $11,119.00 before insurance, $4524.40 after. I have an emergency dental/medical fund with $5,000 saved. I paid $2714.84 today getting 1% back and paying $1809.76 with 1% back during my next visit. I save $50 a week for this fund. I did budget a little bit more in case the cost was more. I can now free up that money to help pay down my bills fasters. I do have an infection in my mouth so I am being treated with antibiotics.


I deposited the $2715 via the bank’s atm. It shorted me $220.00. I have to get to the bank and get this straightened out first thing in the morning. How can an ATM short a deposit by $200+ ?

Emma, my deepest sympathies for your loss.

5 low spends, 1 no spend.
When it rains, it pours.

I hope that your mouth infection clears up soon. Get well!

Oh my! Your teeth should look gorgeous after $11,119.00 of work on them. Are you smiling or crying? I have looked into getting five (5) implants; it would cost about half of what your dental work cost; and insurance wouldn't cover any of it. I don't know what to do on that, but I'm not in a big hurry, as I haven't had my five (5) upper front teeth since age 12 and I'm in my fifties now.

Oh no! I sure hope that you were able to get the shortage on your deposit corrected. I have no clue how that could have happened. BTW, great job noticing the shortage. Many people don't even get a receipt at the ATM, or if they do, they don't look at it.

Hope that you're having a good weekend.

I'm in for May still hanging at 112/137 grocery this week, yesterday was a no spend DS2 now has DS1 bug so we are just taking it easy I'm thinking my energy bill will be a bit higher than usual this month bc we have been spending more time at home with AC running. Menu planned for the week I don't think we need much else besides maybe one or two things so that's good!! I made my plan/budget for May so all that's left is to stick to it!! Starting in early June DS1 will have summer break so I won't need to be driving all the time.
