Batten down the Hatches

April 2nd, 2018 at 11:11 am

Goal for April: No to Low Spend.

Already spent $101.66 on a new suit for DH. He hasn't had to interview in about a decade and we decluttered his previous career clothes. He had a variety of pant sizes (36" to 42") (he's been up and down the weight continuum). We cleared it all out and he is starting over.

Kohl's had a great sale ($200 suit coat for $75, $100 pants for $44. On top of that I used 20% off and it was free shipping, plus $10 Kohls Cash back for future use). Used debit card - so I'll consider it a win-win.

Ham bone went into crockpot for bean soup, another crockpot has homemade granola going. I've baked brownies for boys' lunch snacks tomorrow. I did spend $18 building up a stockpile last month.

So trying to plug those money leaks. Prepping for short-term unemployment. Outlook is still sunny.

    Great price on the suit! You're doing a fantastic job with the crockpot and thinking ahead!

    Gotta love Kohls and their deals. DH hates to pay full price for any of this clothes anymore and he peruses the sale rack quite a bit. Hope the interviewing goes well and hope DH gets a fabulous job!

    Don't you just love Crockpots? I have 5 -- all different sizes. Only 3 were purchased new. The others were purchased like new at an estate sale and a thrift shop.
