This month, I decided to do very little grocery shopping and try to use as much as I can from the freezers (deep freezer/fridge) as well as food items from the pantry. There is quite a lot of stuff that we really should consume. Today I used the last of the chili and I will not be storing any other food until everything is gone.

I also scored some goodies from my friend. She is going back home to Ireland and she gave me some food items to take home. I have to return on Friday to pick up any condiments from the fridge.

Here is a pic:

On another note, summer vacation is coming to an end in a matter of a few weeks. I figured out what we will have left from my last summer savings paycheck and hubby's actual paycheck and it seems as we will have a nice chunk of change to put in savings. It helps that we do not have any car insurance payment until September or a heating oil bill. Those two bills can eat up a good amount of our take home income. DS#2 will be paying his entire car insurance bill because he is now working full time. We are not requiring for him to pay us rent unless we see that he is throwing his money away on junk. Somehow, I don't forsee him doing that since he's always been an excellent saver.

Well, that's it for today. Have a great work week.

    That is great! By the way, we need to do that, too - we have a lot of food we could eat before we buy more...
