Today's Spending

June 4th, 2013 at 06:02 pm

I ordered an electric razor off Amazon today. I haven't had one in over 3 years. I usually steal DH's, but he takes it to work with him, which means I don't have one while he is gone and I really hate using disposable ones. It doesn't bother me much during the fall, winter, and spring to have hairy legs, but now it's finally shorts weather, so I gave in and made the purchase. It was a $65 razor and with shipping it came to $82. Mostly because they didn't have a standard shipping option, only a two day shipping option. Oh, well, that was the one I wanted, one that was both rechargeable and usable with a power cord.

I also picked up a prescription today. It was $2.43. I am hoping to make it through the rest of the week with no spending. Well, I say week. I actually mean until payday on Friday when I will pay the bills and go grocery shopping. I shouldn't need anything between now and then. Still resisting the urge to pick up takeaway. The urge is always there, but I am getting back into the habit of cooking so it is getting easier to resist.

    I'm with you on the urge to get take out. I will often do it as a 'treat' for doing something that isn't my favorite thing to do. But that is happening too often. I'll look at a long list of errands as a reason to get take out. I have many things that I can quickly cook at home--and I like most of them, but I'm always seeming to have an eye on going out. :-/ It's why I started experimenting in the kitchen to try to come up with something that will tempt me to go home!

    Yeah. Thing is, I'm a great cook, so my food will taste better than restaurant food anyway. But cooking is work, and I've been doing so much else lately that, I don't always want to face the cooking and the clean up. Giving in to that lets bad eating out habits occur.
