This was the first week that I really used my juicer, and my groceries were more expensive than normal. But it wasn’t because of all the produce I bought – it was because I ended up buying bottled juice to bring for lunch. I read everywhere on the internet that you should drink fresh juice immediately, and that it cannot be saved for later. But after a few days, I started bringing fresh juice in an air-tight glass jar. I might not be getting all of the nutrients I would be if I drank it right away, but it’s definitely more cost-effective than buying juice from the grocery store.
On Friday – 5 days into the month – I failed at one of my goals for the month, which was to bring my own lunch to work every day. I went out for sushi with some co-workers… but in all fairness, it was the last day of work for my first hire at the company. I couldn’t exactly miss out on that! :)
Saturday, Nic and I went on a short road trip down to Seattle. It wasn’t really about the destination, it was more about spending a day driving and exploring. We stopped off at Target, where I stocked up on protein bars (they’re double the price up here in Canada – even when purchased in bulk from the internet), hit up REI (running accessories), and did a quick spin around Seattle before heading back up to Canada.
I also purchased OIO Publisher, which is a product that helps me control my ad space here on my website. I did a bunch of research to figure out which would be best for me, and for the sale of private ads, I found OIO was the best (and least confusing to use).
That’s it! How was your week of spending?
