I've been having a little panic. Over a week to pay day and not much left in the kitty. I've gone over my receipts to look at what I've bought but am not sure how to lower the costs of what I've bought to cost less. When onions, simple old onions weight in at between $4 and $8 a kilo and carrots are up to $4 a kilo it gives my brain a big messing with when trying to keep the spending to a tiny minimum.
I do have savings and I save every fortnight. One account for my kid's university fund and one for savings sake. But I am loathe to dip into my savings and I won't dip into my kid's education fund either. I am a single parent and I have paid for everything for my kid for the last 14 years and I don't mind that. KF is my kid and that is my responsibility. But when the kitty is low, I do sometimes feel frustration.
Anyway, first world problems, no one is starving....we've still got some supplies to keep us going. But it does give me pause for more thought than usual.
Anyway, I am sure it goes without saying that I did not spend anything today.
