Rain, Rain, Go Away..........

Yes, It's Raining here in the "sunshine" state. What's that about? For the nex two day, cloudy with a great chance of rain. so far they were right about today. Lots of rain! Why is this a big deal? Well, in order to lower my electric bill, I bought an umbrella clothesline to hang clothes on. So far, I haven't had the chance to use it. Maybe later this week.
So, today I did NOT take the toll road into work and I avoided the 7-11 as well. This is a savings of $5.00 at the 7-11 and .75 cents for the toll. Grand total to add to my emegency fund at Emigrant is $5.75. Woo Hoo!! I did spend 13.54 at the grocery store today, but my budget for groceries for two weeks is $200.00. This is for 5 adults and sometimes one grandchild. Total so far is $179.41. So, for now I am under budget. Hmmm... that does not really happen a whole lot. A step in the right direction. Accountability. Plan the meals, take a list to the store and use coupons if you are inclined to do so.
