So it’s Day 6 of 31 of the No(Low) Spending Challenge and the fridge is empty. I need to re-stock.
Given that I am using only cash this month I decide to go to No Frills which is a grocery store which will allow me to use PC points to pay for my groceries. I have enough points to get $120 worth of items.
I pulled out my list and walked almost every aisle and picked up what I needed and a bit more.
$95.24 later, I hand over my credit card to take the points off and before I could object the cashier had rung my balance of $5.24 onto my card. 😦 Dang you, pay pass!!! She seemed puzzled by the look on my face. It was similar to this.
To rectify the situation, I came home and immediately put $10.00 on my credit card to compensate. To add to the situation, I had to get change to get a cart and turned a $5 bill into 2 toonies and 4 quarters, so all of that is going into my change pile.
In the spirit of not spending money I took an empty coffee can from work to store my change pile. 🙂
Surely those 3 actions should make it all better.
