This morning, I had a bunch of errands to run. Six separate stops, and home by 11:45. Two of my trips fell into the grocery category.
Stop & Shop:
8.99 - 24 pack of string cheese. This seemed expensive to me, and I almost bought the 12 pack which was on sale for 4.89....but then I realized that this was ever so slightly cheaper and will last me a little longer
4.49 - milk
3.34 - salad kit, part of this week's dinner meal prep
1.49 plus tax - 2 pack of Reese's PB cups lol - clearly I have a weakness for these! Not on sale today, boo
Today's grocery spend - 18.43/56.40 MTD (category which includes household and toiletries is currently at 82.09).
While I was out, I got a donut at Dunkin (lol I have been planning for that since Thursday and have zero regrets about the $/calories it cost), dropped off an Amazon return & the fitness tracker at UPS (I decided I didn't like the color so reordered it for a nicer one that I like much more....had to return the original), went back to the dealership for them to actually change my rear wiper blade this time (they did not do it last week, so I called, and they asked me to come back today). They also gave me a cabin air filter and engine oil filter for my next service....which will be my free oil change in a few months. I went to the grocery store, got gas at the warehouse club, and then went to CVS for candy & shave gel, plus a birthday card, wrapping paper and more candy for my mom's birthday tomorrow.
On my way to my mom's house tomorrow, I need to stop at the grocery store near her for a few more things. Toldya I like to make a lot of smaller trips! The split between today's trip and tomorrow's is due to sales & various store brands I prefer. Neither store was out of the way in my list of errands, so there's not even a time/gas opportunity cost.
Now that I've gotten all of today's "outside" to do items handled, I can kick back and relax. A few more to do's on the list, but those don't require putting my coat on! Hoping everyone has a nice weekend!
