There is not much new and exciting going on this week at all. I'm really looking forward to next week, when the temps are supposed to be down in the 80's and even in the 70's one day. I'd like to finally get back to some normal weather. Rain would be so welcome - especially to help put out the fire and get rid of all the smoke in the air.
DH was going to get started building his boot bench, for the laundry room, today but since he needs to put his saw table outside, and it's so smokey, he's decided to wait.
I went grocery shopping last Sunday for this weeks food. I think I might actually make it the whole week without needing to run to the store. I spent $70 on Sunday and I also spent $36 with a Walmart online order of some food, toothbrushes, etc.
My DD has been in a money saving mode lately with her shopping. She will send me messages that she is doing up a spreadsheet with all the stuff she regularly buys and the prices so she can watch for sales and get below those prices and stock up. She said she compared prices between Costco, where they like to shop and Target, where she shops a lot too and Target was better on a lot of her items. I asked her if she factored in the additional 5% savings using her Target card and she had not, so even better. I also reminded her that the grocery store she likes to shop at has an app where you can save even more and she had forgotten I used to use that, so she will download that to her phone. I told her they used to always have a free item each week, too. She and her BF are also really good about not eating out very often. They always take their lunches to work. Usually she will make up a weeks worth on Sunday. Always healthy stuff too. Usually they take their breakfasts to work, since they both start so early. DD will make a weeks worth of breakfast burritos or they will do some overnight oatmeal. They cook most of their dinners at home, other than weekends, when they are usually out and about doing activities and going out with friends.
She was going to apply for a job that an acquaintance posted on Facebook, starting at $50k, but when she looked up the company it had a lot of bad reviews on the employment/salary site she was looking at, so she decided not to apply. Plus, it was for a job recruiter type of position and I told her I think she'd probably get pretty bored looking at resumes and interviewing all day every day.
