Ah, the rewards of stockpiling: This week's sales were once again underwhelming, the weather was once again gross, and because we amassed a kick-ass stockpile of grocery and household supplies in the second half of 2011 and added to it last week with a spot of heavier-than-usual shopping, Nelly and I were mostly able to avoid shopping this week. (This was a sweet relief, as venturing out in freezing rain makes us both cranky.) The boring-as-ever details, because your day wouldn't be complete without them:
Grocery and Household Supplies
We went really wild this week and bought a quart of milk and two pouches of tuna. Total, after coupons and sales: $2.46.
Fancy Transportation Machine (Also Known as 'Automobile') Expenses
It was finally time for our first gas station jaunt of 2012. Not because the tank demanded it, mind you – we could've gone another week-and-a-half, maybe two, without filling up – but out of an abundance of wanting-to-be-fully-prepared-in-dodgy-weather caution. The total at the pump was $20.69, which was covered by a $25 gas station gift card my sister had given me for my birthday days earlier. Thank you, sis, for picking such a practical gift!
Total spent this week: $2.46
Total spent this year: $79.82
