Last night I did a bad thing. I needed to stop and pick up some graham crackers so I went in to the grocery store without any coupons. My plan was just to get the graham crackers and get out. Well, I wound up spending $33.26. It’s crazy how that happens. I know better and yet I still do things like this. Planning is everything when it comes to saving money on groceries.
Oh, and to top things off, one of the items I picked up was a bottle of Pom Pomegranate Blackberry Tea because I was thirsty. Well, apparently Pumpkin was thirsty too because she drank almost the whole bottle. She left me a very little bit. If I’d have known she was that thirsty I would have bought something in a larger bottle. The stuff is good, but she could at least leave a little more for the person who paid for it.
And yes, I realize that there is nothing frugal about buying single portion drinks while you are out, but believe me, it’s better for everyone if my daughter and I don’t get thirsty. Just ask my husband.
