So for Christmas I received a gift card to Lane Bryant. I went yesterday with my husband and got some wonderful clothing. I got a new pair of slacks - very pretty. They are gray with elastic (i wanted the ones that were button, but those were $50 compared to the ones I got that were $20). Plus, I got new underwear as well as a new red sweater, a new black sweater, and a new purple shirt. And!!! A new pair of hoop earrings. Plus, my insulin was at the pharmacy (which I have been fighting over 2 months with them for) so it was a pretty good day.
So I'm setting a goal to see how long I can go without going to Walmart. We went a little over board with Christmas so we need to take it slow on going to the store to make funds last a little further than they normally would. We have plenty of food in the house so we just need to make it and eat it. On the down side, its not exactly low carb or even healthy food.
Why does healthy food cost sooo much? I mean, it seems the longer it will last in your pantry - the cheaper it can be purchased over at the cash register. The quicker it will go bad, the more they charge you for it... its sooo frustrating! We need to get some milk to last us for a crap-load of hamburger helper and then it is off the store for as long as we can go!
Well, we are going to work on starting to take walks and stuff to get more exercise in order to feel better. I need to increase my circulation and cut down on my carbs. Today was a good day and I hope tomorrow and the rest of the week can be just as good.
