Budget Update

The second week of our pay period started yesterday. Woo! So, of course, I went grocery shopping. I spent $73.03.

I bought:
Milk
Yogurt
Hot dogs
Turkey slices
Ground turkey
Eggs
Cat food
Pancake mix (not GF)
Rice
*Pop
Gravy (not GF)
Soup (not GF)
Spaghetti sauce
Diapers
*Mop solution for the Swiffer
*Mop solution for the Clorox
Q-tips
Infusium 23 (I need this. I don't care how expensive it is. There are very few "products" I buy. This is it, pretty much.)
*Earrings
*Chips
Hamburger buns (not GF)
*Weight Watchers chocolate cakes (not GF, also I think their logo should be "everyone deserves a little cake" Get it? Because they're little cakes. Sorry. I really like them, so I think about these things.)
Tuna
Baked beans
Lettuce
Bananas

* Unneccessary budget busters accounting for $22.58 in extra expenses. Gah. Actually, I have no idea how to clean our wood floors without the Swiffer and wood floor solution. ?

Anyway, this should leave us with $40 to buy gas and everything else we need until pay day. Hopefully we can do it, as we're in better shape right now than usual.

Regarding your floors... I recommend "splurging" on the $25 omop by Method that uses a reusable microfiber pad for wet (and you could probably sew a dry pad--I've seen them at craft fairs...then again, you could probably sew a microfiber pad for the swiffer wand you already have...). Then check out this page for a multitude of DIY natural cleansers: http://www.geocities.com/Heartland/Prairie/8088/clngrn.html

Just looking at your "walk of shame" I don't think it is! It's quite commendable... I'm v. impressed.

Thank you! Maybe it does need a new name.

we just had our floors refinished. they told me not to use murphys oil soap or pledge floor cleaner or any other of that stuff as it leaves a flim on the poly coat of the floor. they recommend a solution of 30% white distilled vinegar and water in a spray bottle. you just spray the floor and wipe with a slightly damp pad. i bought just the mircofiber pad from target's omop floor cleaning stuff. it attaches perfectly to my swiffer and i think it was only 6- or so. and the vinegar smell isnt harsh as long as you dont you too much in the solution. but i have heard the smell disapates after two hours anyway. hope this helps!

Anonymous, thank you!!! I've been meaning to check to see if vinegar was safe on wood floors. Our house was built in the 20's and the floors are one of the best parts, so I want to make sure we take care of them!
