Re: Use Up the Pantry Challenge

I am afraid we've spent quite a bit on groceries. Since DH does not know how to cook, he bought some convenience foods, heat and eat stuff, and single serving things for DS and I while we have been quarantined. We probably won't go back to the grocery store until Monday if it's left up to me. The pa...

Re: Daily Check in Jan 15, 2021

JCKitty, the university was giving breakfast boxes and snack bags to my students who were quarantined. Most of the time they wouldn't eat them: wouldn't even pick the boxes and bags up from outside their doors. I squirreled away the non-perishable things that were factory packaged for whenever we'd ...

Re: How Do You Keep Up With Inflation?

I think DH being sent home to work as a result of Covid really saved us when I wasn't working. He used to spend so much money at work: snacks and drinks from the vending machines, eating lunch out every day, and $100 a month on gas. It turned out that work was costing him about $600 a month (serious...

Re: Daily Check in Jan 15, 2021

Rinty, does your library there do lending of e-books through an app? There's one called Libby that I've been using and it has saved my sanity being locked up in quarantine in our bedroom. I have very little patience for watching television, even though I can watch Netflix on my tablet, and have been...

Re: Daily Check in Jan 15, 2021

Jackie, I am so glad you mentioned MLK Day being a national holiday in the US. Having been stuck in the bedroom in quarantine, I'd completely forgotten and was fretting about being letting out of quarantine on Sunday and having to go straight back to work on Monday, having not been able to do anythi...
