Grocery = ($91.78) our grocery was higher than what I wanted it to be, it was because we bought things that was on sale, eg chicken that was 75% off. Just couldn’t say no to it. DH also decided to get a big bag of coffee beans even though we have a lot of instant coffee, to be fair it is so much nicer. Luckily, we are still just under our monthly budget but I still need to claw back those high grocery bills last month and the month before. Maybe we will do better in August. The pantry and freezer are fairly full now.
Dishwasher = so now the dishwasher is not working. So we are currently doing dishes by hand. We looked at couple of stores on the weekend and also saw that Aldi have them on sale at the moment. So far we are leaning towards the Aldi brand, the price is unbeatable. Currently the so called brand-named appliances have been pretty disappointing. The Aldi is $300 with 3-years warranty. It might be worth taking a “risk” on it.
Garden = DH and I made 2 benches for our potted orchids and also half-way to making a bench for sitting. We already had materials (mainly cut-offs) at hand so no new cost so far.
