Days 20 and 21

July 22nd, 2012 at 12:58 am

The bus didn't work out as well as I had hoped. It didn't show up until 20 after and I was not going to be able to shop and get back to work in time. So, darn. I went for a walk instead and just stopped at two grocery stores on the way home to get my shopping done. I've done it before and made it back in time, but I guess this time it wasn't meant to be.

So on my way home from work, I stopped at Save A Lot and the regular grocery store.

Save A Lot $17
Cheese
Water
Lettuce
Enchilada sauce
Milk
Corn Bread mix
Green onions
Corn tortillas
Small scrub brush (just what I've been looking for and it was only $1!)

Regular grocery store (where I go to the get the things not available at Save A Lot) $19
Almond milk
Flour tortillas (a certain brand the bf likes)
Cat food

Day 20 Numbers:

Spend: $36
Left: $55
In: $5 Amazon gift certificate from Swagbucks

Today we went to the dirt bike track and I didn't pack near enough food. On the way home, bf went to his favorite pizza place and I went to McDonalds. All day I had been feeling rather ooky and had a headache. The thing that makes me feel better 85% of the time I feel like this? Quarter Pounder, fries, and a large Diet Coke. Yum.

When I got home, I felt so much better that I made the three cheese chicken enchiladas (which I will happily eat as leftovers) with the corn bread. Bf has leftover pizza and I've got enchiladas for the next few days. Easy eating.

Also, when my parents came to visit, they gave us their pop-up camper. We finally moved it to a place where we could pop it up so I could clean it out. While I was waiting for the enchiladas to cool, I went out and started scrubbing the floor, counters, and "kitchen." We need to buy some stuff to outfit the camper and then we're going camping!!! I'm so excited! I can't wait to hit the Goodwills to find what we need!

Day 21 Numbers:

Spend: 7
Left: $48

    Is there a basic list of what's needed to outfit a camper? How do you keep weight down since that affects mileage?

    I don't know of a basic list, but I've got silverware and pans already. I can use blankets we have and pull some pillows from our bed. I need to get plates and cups. I'm sure it will affect mileage, but ya gotta have comforts if you're going to camp with a camper!

    It's a good idea to have a basic list, so you make sure you don't leave anything at home when you're camping in the wilderness!
