No Spend Month – January 4th

This was my Walmart delivery this morning. I am only buying necessities. The grapes are to use in chicken salad this weekend. The romaine and mandarin oranges are to make salads. I am very low on green veggies so I purchased some broccoli, spinach and a broccoli and cauliflower mix.

The Hellman’s was to replace the last one that Hubby opened. We only had 6 eggs left and this box of 5 dozen was the cheapest in my town. They were only $ 5.63. The pizza is to have on hand to prevent us from getting take out if I need a night off. It was only $ 3.87 which is a lot cheaper than take out.

The crackers and popcorn were requested by Hubby for his snacks. The minute rice is handy when Hubby wants rice. I rarely eat it. This will make it easy to make. My entire bill was $ 49.84 including a $7.00 tip.

Amazon delivered my spin mop and bucket today so that I can start washing our walls soon. This is going to be a huge money saver.

I did my usual chores today and cleaned my second kitchen pantry. It didn’t take long because I keep it pretty neat. I also did my 30 minutes of exercising.

This afternoon I made a couple of business calls that needed to be done. I spent about 40 minutes waiting on hold. They seemed to be swamped after the holidays. Then I took a badly needed nap.

Hubby cooked enough chicken legs in the air fryer for our dinner and brunch tomorrow. I made some Buffalo wing sauce.

Tomorrow is my errand day so I need to get to bed early. I like to run errands during senior hours very early in the morning.

I hope you are doing well with your no spend month and that you have your exercise routine working for you.

Hi, AD. You are doing well so far on your no spend month. I wanted to comment that I hadn’t seen so many eggs! I didn’t know you could buy them in a package like that.
I am not doing a no spend month in January, today I did a stock up trip from the mega sale at Kroger. I bought multiples of things we use so that hopefully won’t have to buy for awhile. They had some good cereal deals for hubby and I think I won’t have to buy more until back to school in August. I also got some peanut butter and Chi Chi’s salsa. And I did finally find a canned kidney bean sale for chili. It was .60/can and I spent .50/can last year. I was down to my last 4 cans so I bought a dozen at the .60 price. If I find a deal at a lower price I will buy some more.

Hi Chris,

I didn’t know that I could buy that many either until a few months ago. Now it is my preferred way to buy them at Walmart. They are always dated way in the future so I don’t have to worry about any of them going to waste. I used to love those mega sales when we lived in Arizona. I would shop at Fry’s and wait for those sales and use coupons.No Kroger here. I would love it if they bought out Top’s though. Those are good prices on the beans.
