September 15, 2013

I intended to spend nothing today, but my technologically impaired mother bought a new printer and kept calling me and asking for help with the installation.  She used up all my cell phone plan minutes, so I had to buy more if I want to talk to anybody before September 27.

Chili dog combo from Sonic: $7.30

Chocolate Frosty from Wendy's: $1.04

Groceries from H&K: $13.95.  One of my friends eats sushi, but is greatly disturbed by anything small and fishy.  So I took a separate large picture of the smelt just for him, lol.

3 loads of laundry: $10.50.  I was robbed. One of the loads decided that it was unbalanced but finished the cycle anyway; all the clothes were left soaking wet and required two extra dryer cycles at $1.25 each.

Return postage: $6.95.  The jacket would have fit great if I were 2-3 inches taller and 20-30lbs heavier.

Pink's Hot Dogs: $9.45

September 5, 2013

Lunch at Chick Fil A: $6.92.  I always get the number #1 combo: chicken sandwich, fries, and beverage of choice which is always lemonade.

Sam's Club: $182.62.  Huge environmental hit: I bought meat and seafood, the clothes were made in Asia, the facial cleansers are disposable single use wipes, and I traveled 35 miles to and from a gigantic box store in the San Fernando Valley.

Daily total: $189.54

September 4, 2013

Chicken tostada and Sprite from cafeteria at work: $5.99.  The taco salad was kind of gross, and I ended up eating very little of it.

Total wasted: $2.50

September 3. 2013

Fish tacos from Bajamar food truck: $6.00.  The tacos were excellent, but I started to exhibit mild allergy symptoms within 30 minutes of finishing lunch.  It's the third or forth time it's happened after eating at a food truck that serves seafood.  I suspect that I'm developing a shrimp/shellfish allergy in my old age, so future visits to seafood food trucks are probably out.

Groceries from Smart and Final: $43.41

Daily total: $49.41

September 2, 2013

No spending.  It was Labor Day, and unseasonably hot in Los Angeles.  I was going to go to the beach, but decided to avoid the traffic, crowds, and $12 parking fee.

September 1, 2013

2 loads of laundry: $6.00

Pad See Ew combo from O'Chai Thai Restaurant:$18.00.  I had one with tofu and one with chicken: it was too hot to cook so I bought lunch for 2 days.

Stamps to mail job applications: $19.80
Jamba Juice 16oz Peach Perfection: $4.85

Beef something another from Nonna's Kitchenette food truck: $10.00.  It was good, but definitely not the Italian food I was expecting from the online menu.  This seemed more Filipino/Asian fusion.
