WEEK 16

April 24th, 2018 at 12:23 am


This was an expensive week, there were few things we had to spend money on and last week was my birthday so we went out for dinner, it was low key celebration.

Groceries – spent a total of $76.70

Birthday Dinner – We went to a nice Italian restaurant that we haven’t been to for over 2 years, one of our favourite. We spent $115.50, I ate way too much that I skipped breakfast and lunch the next day. They were big servings we are not used with those these days normally, most restaurants hardly have anything on the plate. I received few more gift cards.

Clothes & Bed Sheets – We had to throw away most of our thermal under garment so bought new ones because winter is coming. That was $48.95. While there we found a nice Flannelette Bed Sheets sets for $29.99. I love those for winter.

New Convection Oven – We had to get a new one because the other one died half-way to using it - that was only $45.

Paint – DH built a screen wall outside, it will help to hide the clothes line. Most of the materials he used were reclaimed wood except for a couple posts. It will need painting, bought some for $53.70. It will have a lot of left overs that I can used in the future.

Internet – Just like our health insurance we have an option of free paying. We can pay a year in advance and get 2 months for free, a saving of $130. DH paid $780 for the year.

Car rental Deposit – We are visiting my brother and family again. We decided we will need transportation so we can visit other towns. Last night DH paid the deposit of $107.08.

I think that’s it for now.

    Sounds like well thought out spending.

    It seems like so many of our appliances are going or have gone. Had to replace the vacuum. Not that I'm complaining. We've had it for years and I more than got our money's worth out of it. It just seems to go in cycles though.

    Happy birthday for a little while ago! I also celebrated my birthday around the middle of April.

    Thanks VS and belated happy birthday to you too. I've missed reading your blog by the way.

    The costs were really high, but solely because you had to pay several expenses at once for the whole year and this increased the expenditure part of the budget.
