Stock up money $93
Bar soap (bath soap)
A furnace filter
Gallon of Organic Milk
$4.86 left over
I'm thinking and hoping that all of the above will at least last for all of January. These items are generally my budget killers so hopefully having bought them all at the beginning of the month and in larger quantities than I normally buy now I'll be able to stick closer to $15 a day.
I NEVER buy dryer sheets but our house is getting really static-y with the frigid temps outside and my sons fleece PJ's are giving him countless little shocks. I had hoped to have more left than $4.86 (for gifts later) but I splurged on a new furnace filter and dog treats (that I'd forgotten we ran out of).
I also picked up a few groceries today. I'll do actual grocery shopping when I finish up work tomorrow. I spent $9.57 on food just for Abe. Including him in the daily spend this year is going to be challenging. I'm nervous but at the same time I'm ready for the challenge... I think.
