I just spent $9.99 on toilet paper, $36.97 on food and $9.25 on two birthday gifts, one for my little guy and one for a different niece. The clearance toys and sporting goods are an additional 50% off today.
Average daily spending for 2015: $16.25
The average factors in the next three no spends and does not factor in cat food I'm going to need to purchase probably today.
The food waste situation is on the verge of getting out of control here.
I bought a beautiful large orange today, sliced up the three wrinkly clementines, and I'm working on another batch of orange marmalade right now. I'm not sure how well it will work out but I sliced up the yuck strawberries that didn't have any mold on them and threw them in with the oranges. It'll be an interesting batch of marmalade with orange, clementine, strawberry, and a little rum.
The other three strawberries got tossed out. I think I'll freeze the bananas and use them for smoothies. I'm highly contemplating using my new mini muffin tin to make a batch of apple Tassies with those two rapidly decaying apple halves. That'll be the second batch of Tassies I've ever made.
I've also got some creamy mushroom chicken in the fridge that I need to use up and I'm not sure if I should transform it into soup or just freeze it before it's too late... Something must be done about it today! Really keeping close tabs on the food we throw out is leading me to believe I threw out way more food than I ever thought before. It takes some work but I'm glad to be trying to utilize all of the food we bring into our home. It's only fair to the food, the people who produced it, and certainly the animals that gave their lives. AND it certainly helps save money.
