Grocery = $52.40 – a lot more reasonable.
Dishwasher = so we went ahead and got the new dishwasher from Aldi. The price actually went down $20 from the week before. And DH spent another $29.90 to get some plumbing items to be able to hook it up. So in total it was $308.90, with a 3-year warranty.
I looked up our last dishwasher purchase and it was 9 years ago (I blogged about back in Aug 2010). That one cost us $595, we got it on sale with a great discount and the original price was $1,200. That one cost us $66.44 per year. An equivalent of 4.6 years for this new one but also there are some benefits because it uses cold water, it is more efficient in both water and electric usage and it has a delayed timer which means we can set it to wash the dishes during off-peak time.
Lunch out = we went out for lunch for a friend’s birthday. We spent $100 for gift and $52 for food.
Stovetop espresso maker = got one on sale down from $45 to $18. This was an item we have in our “to get for the right price” list.
