Sadly, I appear to be hammered by bills on all sides right now. While I’ve picked up another contract until Christmas for extra money, it will be weeks until I’m paid. Lousy timing all around! Thank goodness companies are pretty good with extending deadlines, especially as I can tell them the exact date I can pay them. It’s frustrating to have earned the all money I need for the bills but not have it right now. But what can you do? The first few weeks of a contract are always the poorest until you have that extra bit of cash flow.
First things first – my mother in law got wind of the bill situation and filled my freezer. I have the best mother in law around. Check out all the goodies she gave me! Ham, mince, pie, veggies, steak, chicken, bacon bits and probably more.
Because a family member recently moved into an aged care home, I was also given the leftovers of their pantry tinned items. They’re really not foods we eat, but it’s also the time of year for me to review my bug out/emergency bag and tinned foods are great for that. Ignore the crap on the bench. We’re only using a small freezer for now we’ve had to take out most of our freezer packs.
And…onto the grocery shopping portion. We spent $80.75 at Coles:
And $13.77 at Woolies:
Who else has an awesome mother in law? What did you spend at your last grocery shop?
