I even asked them to double check at the Dentist and they confirmed that was all we owed!
Woohoo! The extra money will pay for the major amount that I went over the grocery budget this week. Aldi had tons of good stuff on mark down and then today at Acme they had some great deals on Pepsi (4 - 12pks for $11), Paper Towels (8 roll packs - 2 for $7.98), Sweet Baby Ray's Marinades and BBQ Sauce ($1 each) and Kraft Salad Dressings ($1). I had to stock up. I have such a hard time passing up a deal. But there's always more deals out there so I feel like I never get ahead.
$65 is being set aside for Big R's pool membership. I have to figure out if it makes sense to buy the membership or just pay the $5 per visit. Her Summer Camp takes the kids once a week to the pool and Mr. R will take her once or twice. I don't like going. Too many kids. I'd rather relax in my mom's pool.
$122 is being added to our savings goals, plus the extra $317 that is in our savings that I never figured out what it was for.
