Days 8 & 9 Recap

I've missed blogging for a couple of days, so this is a "catch up" entry for the past couple of days. On Monday, my husband was working and I was at home for lunch, so I had some leftover vegetable barley soup. For dinner, we had the veggie supper I had planned originally for Sunday night. It was a lot of work, but boy was it yummy!

Yesterday, we drove around looking at houses. We drove a total of 90 miles looking at about 10 houses we were interested in, and are now down to 2 front-runners. We had lunch at one of our favorite pizza places, but we both had the lunch special for Tuesday: a small pepperoni pizza and a drink for $4.10. Our total bill was $8.77. Not too shabby for a lunch out! We had some ice cream at Zesto for a mid-afternoon snack since it was heating up outside and we still weren't quite done, for a total of $5.44. That's all we spent on food yesterday though.

When we came home, we got a head start on those "first time homeowners" dinners -- frozen fish fillets and Kraft Macaroni & Cheese. The fish was in the stockpile (I think I paid $2.99 for the box of 10 at Aldi) and the Mac & Cheese was purchased on Monday at Meijer for 38 cents a box after coupon. Yesterday wasn't the healthiest day in the world, but it was at least cheap, even with a restaurant meal. :)

Our anniversary is coming up on July 28, and we'd like to go out for dinner. I stumbled onto an 80% off coupon code for that enabled me to get a $25 certificate for a local Italian restaurant for only $2. We should be able to eat for almost nothing on that certificate, plus it's a restaurant I've been wanting to try. Score! :)

$$ Spent Yesterday: $14.21
$$ Remaining: $3.66
