This week was okay budget wise.
We did go to Trader Joes and I haven’t decided whether to make that part of my May grocery bill or just call it for April which now sits @800. This includes all food, non-food, cat food, and alcohol( which is just wine for me as B is not drinking at all with his treatments.)
I’m leaning just calling it for April and just moving forward. The only extra bills were the medical co-pays. One was for $500 and the other $350. That’s just medical and part of how we’ve budgeted the GFM money. All other bills are done and the budget is set for May.
We’ve sent in the long term disability forms but really don’t know how they would calculate that. It would be nice but I’m still not sure even how that works.
I went to Target and got a fan since now the weather is getting warmer. I also picked up cat food and some cloth napkins we needed.
We did go to Home Depot for more garden supplies but I consider that seasonal expenses especially for the garden which will produce veggies. That was @ $130.
Tomorrow is a gym day and B needs platelets. So I’ll go and then wait at Starbucks for him as it usually is a shorter infusion.
Dinner is Greek Chicken Souvlaki.

I hear tell if one cuts out the SB one saves a fortune in coffee money.
Very true. I only drink their brewed coffee @ $2.00 a cup, still pricey but it gives me a place to sit and wait.:)
I mean, yeah, you could save the two bucks, but happiness is worth something. And life without coffee is no life at all. (I might be biased. I work in coffee shops all the time and willingly plunk down $3 for an Americano for the privilege of using a table and wifi. No regrets.)
