January 1 spending

January 1st, 2007 at 04:48 pm

I'd hoped today would be a no spend day but we had to meet a client so we had to put gas in the truck..again. That was $10. We also got two drinks at the gas station so the total was $12.35. There isn't a Wal-Mart Supercenter in our town so while we were in that town we stopped at WM and got:

Milk $3.58
Altern $5.24 (WM's version of Splenda)
2 cartons of half & half $3.34
Several boxes of sugar free pudding and gelatin $4.95
5 dozen eggs $5.82
Colombian coffee $5.58
Sugar free peanut butter $2.27
Regular peanut butter $2.23
2 bunches of celery $1.00
12 ounces walnuts $4.18 (ouch! DH wanted these)
whole wheat bread $1.36
Cottage cheese $2.26
3 lb. Smart Balance $4.38
Creamer $$2.26

The total was $50.83 but we shouldn't need anything but milk and bread for the next week or so. I generally get milk for $2.99 at a convenience store near where we normally shop for groceries but I knew we wouldn't be anywhere near it today so we paid the higher price for the milk at WM.

Spending for the day $63.18
Business Deposit $125.00

I don't know that we'll even leave the house tomorrow. I hope we don't so we don't spend a single cent!

    How far is the Walmart from your town? I go shopping at our Walmart on Sat and Sundays and find great deals on reduced meats and breads, I really save alot of money doing this! I find that here the meat manager usually marks down the meat around 11:00 am and 1 pm. Also there is a reduced bread rack by the milk on the weekends. I get bread and rolls etc, sometimes sweet breads etc. Also there are a couple of sale shelves on a couple of aisles, sometimes they have good stuff sometimes not.
    Good luck with your goals and here's hoping you have a very prosperous new year!

    cindilee, the WM is about 15 miles from us so we try to go there only when we're going to that town to begin with. We do occasionally go there on Saturdays for a class we take but we don't buy or sell on Saturdays so that doesn't help much. DH is there off and on during the week, though and occasionally stops to see what kind of deals they have. We do pretty well shopping the local store's loss leaders and getting most of the other stuff from WM.
