1st Week of August

August 9th, 2017 at 05:05 am

Grocery – We bought mainly staples, fruits and vegetables this weekend. All up it totaled $61.45. We actually end up buying a couple of whole chickens because they were really cheap at Aldi, it was only $3 a kilo, for two chickens we paid $9.76. We also got a big block of cheese (1kg) for $6.

Weekend – We occupied the rest of the weekend mostly reading, listening to music (mainly myself) and podcasts. DH is currently obsessed with podcasts, personal finance in particular. Since we paid off the house and most of our money is now put into investments/savings he has really taken interests. It is more fun than paying off debt. It has now become a new hobby for him, he is reading a lot of personal finance books too. He even went to the library on Sunday afternoon to borrow PF books, it really is amazing.

New Headphone – DH bought a new headphone on ebay for $25.30. His current one is broken from listening to too much podcasts, he is currently using an old crappy one in the main time.

    Great that your DH has taken such an interest in finance!

    Kudos to DH, I wish I could find the key to open DH's interest in finance. He listens to my brief end of month outline of Net Worth and Investment numbers with his eyes glazed over, asking 'is that it then?'

    Yeah that DH is interested in finance. My DH never wanted to talk about bills and such and I finally made him sit down while paying bills. It opened his eyes on how there were times we were skating on thin ice some times because he wanted to spend money. That was a number of years ago and he's now careful about spending.
