The Day of Spending Money
I feel like money is always running through my fingers. I am not referring to silly stuff. Just everyday necessities that a family may need. Okay maybe they are necessities to us and not to other folks. Today was the day of errands. 20.00 at the feed store, food for the chickens. 15.00 at the produce store (did I mention this was the second visit this week). My family goes through fruit like there is no tomorrow. Another 20.00 at dollar general for dog food, cat litter, soda (don't hate me), and deodorant. Art store for yet another sketch book for Grace and 5 new colored pencils which came to 17.00. Grace can easily go through two sketch books a month and we are slowly building up her colored pencil collection of the really good stuff. Once a month I let her pick out 3-5 different colors to add to her collection. I still need to get gas on the way back to church tonight which will be another 25.00. So if anyone was keeping up that came to 97.00 Ouch! I think this weekend will be a go no where weekend, don't even set foot in the car, except for church on Sunday. It is the only way I can insure that we spend nothing.
