I didn’t do Frugal Friday since overall this week hasn’t been too frugal. As far as groceries go I was frugal and didn’t spend much. I think I bought a few things at our Holiday market and that’s it. I went to Walmart yesterday( I go maybe twice a year) to buy some type of PJ for B to wear in the hospital. When he gets his Hickman catheter which has three things hanging to get and receive stuff, you really can’t wear a shirt that goes over your head. It needs to be a button up. So I found 2 nice sets for him to wear. Pretty much you’re in sweats or jammies the whole time. Plus you really have no energy to really even get dressed. I remember, for me, a shower would completely wipe me out. So back to Walmart. As I said I rarely ever shop there but I do like their Danskin line and I pretty much live in those. So I was really annoyed they have stopped carrying them. I am going to check online because I thought I saw them there.
So that shop turned out not frugal because I had a big list including propane bottles, some food items, etc. But I was pleased with what I did get.
Today is day 2 of B’s chemo and I’m going to drop him off and then go to Safeway for a few things like veggies, chicken, and olives. They have an olive bar like whole foods does. Not as many choices but still nice.
Then I’m coming home to finish some laundry and vacuum. I have a good book I’m reading so that’s on my list.
A friend is bringing B home so I don’t have to go back out. Nice!!
Sunday my daughter and I are going to trek down to IKEA for a cabinet for the bathroom I’ve wanted. It’s tall and narrow and since our bathroom is so small my choices are limited. Then we can have fun looking around. But trips to Ikea are rarely frugal. I only go there twice a year also so I kinda keep a list going. They have great kitchen towels for under a dollar. Plus storage boxes are very inexpensive and I could use a few more for pictures.
It’s still rainy and cold now but next week looks like more normal temperatures. Mid fifties and then sixties.
Dinner is a pizza I have a coupon for and my son will pick up after work.
