Spending Splurge

May 2nd, 2014 at 02:40 pm

I spent a lot yesterday. I took my mom out for dinner and shopping for her birthday. I had a big list of stuff I needed to buy. But I did thrifty shopping, and it was all needed stuff so Im trying not to worry about it too much.

I bought 4 shirts for a total of $30. (All resale)

I bought mom a Bluetooth for her birthday for $50 but dad pitched in $20, so total $30.

Both sets of our sheets had holes in them, a new set like we had was $50. So instead I went to Ross and got 2 sets for $15 each.

Bought all the stuff we need to start working on our trim. Sand paper, brushes, clothes, stain, poly, etc. It cost $125 after I used a 10% off coupon. Will be put on the LOC.

Bought a $3 vase at a thrift store.

Used $25 of our grocery money and went to Sams and got some items. (We have been going under grocery budget lately, hurray!)

The good news is, another goat had kids, completing our unexpected spring kidding. I counted them yesterday and all told I have $1,200 worth of goats that are sold right now, plus 3 babies that I am keeping. And perhaps another goat or two I am considering selling. Not bad!

Now I need to hurry up and get the other bred for more fall babies.
