Money I Spent: $20.23 to gas up my car (edited to add this was at Smiths where I used my rewards card to get 20c off per gallon!)
Money Victory ($ I avoided spending): After physical therapy on base, I needed to go to the post office to mail some ebay sales (yay extra $) so went to the post office on base to a) save gas and 2) not be tempted by the rest of town.
Use It Up Challenge: The other day I made crockpot apple oatmeal to use up some apples that were going soft. It made a ton and we are tired of it, so I’m now turning the oatmeal into oatmeal muffins, whatever that is. I’ll let you know how it turns out 🙂
Thoughts: Listened to some good financial podcasts today. I like Afford Anything (Paula Pant) and Be Wealthy and Smart (Linda P Jones). Then I listened to a podcast that I normally like called Listen Money Matters. The episode was supposed to be about lowering your grocery/food budget by cooking cheap meals. But then the guy (millennial single guy) started talking about how he goes to Whole Foods every day for his ingredients and so I was like SHUT UP, DUMMY, and turned him off. Obviously he’s not too smart about frugal cooking if he buys everything at Whole Foods amirite?
