Holy Cannoli! Gas $$

May 27th, 2018 at 11:31 am

I just finished updating YNAB (oops .. hadn't done it since the 13th ...)

We are at $380 for gas - and DH has 3 more work nights - so at least one more tank.

I'd upped the budget to $350 …

But the two trips to the low cost vet - 45 minute trip one way - probably didn't help …

We also have already overspent on groceries by $30. Ugh. I really need to keep up with this more often. It won't help with gas, but at least with groceries, I can make more informed choices and limit the overspending.

We have to wait til sometime next week for the results of the new test for Baby. Plus take him up back to the vet at the end of the month to see if the new food is helping any. (another blood test + gas$$)

I finally got credited with the cashback on my US Bank card. It was $177.83 statement credit. But because I cashed out for over $100, I'm getting a $25 gift card in addition (in 6 weeks or so?)

I mowed the yard again this morning (hadn't set the setting very low last time) and of course didn't wear my gloves … Guess who has popped blisters on her hands? Ouch.

Tomorrow I plan on cleaning the carpets. Fun fun, but needs to be done.

I started watching Madam Secretary on Netflix yesterday. I like it so far.

I bought a soda stream from someone on FB market for $30. I haven't tried it yet, but it was too good of a deal to pass up. (not using to make soda - just carb water)

DH found a new home for the chickens!!!! Hopefully that is going to help the smell in the house (once he cleans the workshop thoroughly …)

Now off to enter receipts ...

    Yes I've noticed a nice little uptick in gas ⛽️ as well, and it sucks.
    I hope you get some good news on baby as well

    Gas prices are definitely higher. I noticed it our YNAB account, too. I'm so excited the chickens will have a new home. They really needed to be housed outside health of all involved.

    My son has a soda stream which he uses for carbonizing water, and he loves it!

    Thanks Amber

    CCF - Me too. My mom will be thrilled to hear it as well. Smile
    CB - cool! Do you know what he uses to flavor his water?

    gas has gotten expensive real fast. last price paid was 3.219/gallon. I am thinking maybe $3.49 by end of summer? I need to refill today.
