09/02 Busy Busy day!!! Started with taking my friend shopping for the day. Went to KMart what a huge toy sale they were having. I did a huge layaway and got 5 of 30 people done for Christmas. Spent (per say) $203.00 and saved $180.00. Placed $25.00 on that. Went to a few other stores she wanted to go to, but, I only spent $58.00, $54.00 in groceries and $4.00 at the Dollar Tree. Got home long enough to relax for a short while and then had to take the In-laws grocery shopping. They treated to dinner out.

09/09 -0- Picked up the other 1/2 of friends at the airport. They got bumped and made out really well. And took In-Laws grocery shopping. Apparently every Tuesday has become their shopping day. lol

09/10 -0- Ended yesterday with a migraine and still can't get rid of it. Staying in for the day.

Oct 11-$7.60 at Bulk Barn and $9 for son's field trip, $3.40 in change jar
Whew! Big day today and nearly blew the whole wad!! It's almost like old times.

I'm counting Bulk Barn as a fast food visit since we just got candy and chocolate!

Didn't expect this field trip (he just went on one two weeks ago!!!) so had to take it from the Misc Money budget. I did it quite grudgingly. I DID debate letting the poor kid miss the play but my conscience got the better of me in the end.

Am now broke for a week (so the next 6 days will be no buy ones for sure!!) but I did manage to save the entire $20 bill last week so I'm stoked about that.

I'm waiting on an ebay purchase's arrival so I can send out a birthday package for my niece and nephew. I'm hoping to be able to do that next week sometime. The shipping cost will be coming out of my $20 for that week. I also need (at present) one thing from the dollar store so I definitely won't be putting $20 in the Disney jar next week but...possibly the week after??!!

Keep up the good work everyone!! We can all have a great month!!
