It Pays

Sitting on the couch enjoying my cup of coffee vacillating between going to pick up some groceries. And cat food. Or could I stretch the can we had.

Around 9:30 I finally decided to go. In part because T goes back to school Thursday and I had nothing for his lunch. Sandwich meat. Bread. Some cat litter. My list was not long. I was going to do another shop on payday.

Got to work and I wandered the produce section. Decided on lettuce, a Ceasars salad kit and grapes for T. Meat had a nice special on strip loin steaks so I bought a family pack of 3. Guess what supper was.

I ran into one of my co-workers and we were chatting when she mentioned 10% Tuesday. Customer Appreciation Day. So lost was I that I asked if it was Tuesday 🤣🤣🤣🤦‍♀️🤦‍♀️🤦‍♀️🤦‍♀️ She quickly set me on the right path. It was Wednesday but we can still shop and get our 10%. Which meant that I could get a little more. Given I also would be able to combine my 10% employee discount.

Saved $83 all said and done. 36% of my bill. Plus earned enough points that I will have $20 to use next time off groceries if I want.

Went to get the cat food. They did not have a case. They did not have large cans of their food. I had to resort to purchasing 4 small cans which will last me one day for the same amount as I would pay for 3 large cans that would feed them 2.5-3 days. Thomas while playing more is eating less go figure.

I may have grumbled. Just a bit. I should have sucked it up and said nothing but it is an inconvenience. Yes big girl pouting alert. ☹️☹️☹️🤣🤣🤣🤣

When I arrived home I made T rise and assist me. After he was done I sent him off and gave him until 12 to watch YouTube. Then homework. And lunch.

I bought cinnamon buns for Thursday morning breakfast forgetting T had classes at 8. And I promised bacon. Have to say that is one aspect of being at home all the time I like, is making T a good breakfast before school.
