What did I do/buy this weekend? (September 24, 2017)

Hello, everybody! This weekend was boring, but I did relax a lot! Like I always do. πŸ˜› See what I did and see what I bought this weekend!

On Saturday, LOCMom went out shopping while I stayed home and just hung out. Boooooring. But since I didn’t want to go and look at antiques with LOCMom, I decided to just suck it up and stay home. Didn’t really spend any money on Saturday, so I just hung out most of the time. However, I did play some Pokemon Moon I just started playing again and it has been super fun! I’m at the island challenge with IIma (I think that is how you spell his name…). So far, so good! πŸ™‚

Money Spent on Saturday

Total Amount Spent: $0.00

Well, on Sunday, I was running out of food, so I had to go to Winco, or the Frugalpants grocery store, and buy some more food. Trying to keep costs down is always the goal, but man, was some stuff pricey at the Frugalpants grocery store. 😦 Healthy food is expensive, I guess. 😦

But after the Frugalpants grocery store, I fed the local pigeons that hang out by the store with some bird seed I buy at the Frugalpants grocery store. πŸ™‚ They’re always hungry when I feed them, so it’s good that they get birdseed to eat on occasion so they are not always starving. I do feel sorry for them. 😦 Didn’t get any pictures of them though… Didn’t even think about it. Maybe next time. πŸ™‚

Also, before the Frugalpants grocery store, LOCMom and I stopped at See’s Candy and got our free sample! I bought some chocolate as well, but not too much since I had a yummy freezer meal for breakfast! However, when I got home, I found my apricot bon-bon smashed in my purse. 😦 Ate it anyway, but it was awful what happened to my poor piece of candy. 😦

Money Spent on Sunday:

See’s Candy – $1.59 (for 2 pieces of candy)

Groceries – $25.67 (for 10 items)

Total Amount Spent: $27.26

If enough readers demand it, I will include what I bought at the Frugalpants grocery store next time. Didn’t want to beat anyone over the head with a really long grocery list. πŸ˜› The reason why the bill is so high for 10 items at the Frugalpants grocery store is that I bought some fresh fruit, vegetables, milk, and some high quality chocolate chips I snack on throughout the day. They’re also good for cooking. πŸ˜‰ Basically, the basics since the basics I usually get tend to run higher than the average basics since they are higher quality and fresh food is just expensive in general. 😦 But I REFUSE to buy processed crap which is why I pay out the nose for the other stuff. Heck, it’s not even organic for the other stuff either. It’s just fresh food.

I also have to be careful with the See’s Candy thing. Sometimes I go so much during a month that I end buying a whole small box “in increments” throughout the month. Sheesh… 😦 That’s why it’s always good to record your spending to see where your money went each month. You’d be surprised to see the results of one’s spending when you record it. πŸ™‚

Well, that’s it for this weekend! It could have been better, but sometimes things are a bit boring in my life without a vehicle. *sigh* Oh well. This too shall pass. πŸ™‚

Also, sorry for the lack of pictures! Boring weekends for me = Barely any pictures or none. Just the way things go. 😦

How was your weekend?

  1. Don’t you just love scoring free candy? πŸ™‚ I got a free Chikfila sandwich for breakfast on Saturday and it was awesome. Free always tastes better. πŸ™‚


  2. After this stressful week, I would love a boring weekend! You are right that fresh food costs so much more than processed. I’m in the process of losing weight, and I’d like to see what you’re buying and what kinds of meals your eating. I like simple foods the best- scrambled eggs and tuna on a salad, for example. It’s DD that gets me in trouble! I can’t resist the Boston Cream donut, so I need to stay away from that place. Add a large coffee with cream, and it’s like a huge meal calorie-wise! 😟


    1. Okay, if I ever go shopping during my weekend update, I’ll put the food I bought up in my spending category. πŸ™‚ The fresh foods I bought were brussels sprouts, whole milk, watermelon, and bananas, and Guittard’s chocolate chips. πŸ™‚ Just to give you a hint of what I usually eat. πŸ˜‰ And good luck with your diet! πŸ˜€ I was dieting for about two months, but I cheated one day and broke my patttern. Haven’t been back on the wagon since. 😦 Want to get back there someday, but I’m just going to maintain my weight loss by eating healthy and not a lot of junk. πŸ™‚ Speaking of donuts, I ate 2 1/2 donuts today, but they were soooooo good. πŸ˜€ To maybe have a less processed donut, you could try some local donut places in your town or city to see if they beat Dunks. πŸ˜€
