I was able to buy a Boston Butt today

I figure I can get several meals out of that. I need to invest in some of those Gladware/Ziplock containers.

I don’t like green peas, but love carrots and onions. When I get more $$ I can make some veggie soup. I also bought some chicken and a little ground chuck, and some Cat Cafe for Mr. Cat. He seems to prefer the eggs still, but he needs his cat food.

There are a couple of food banks here, but I hate to ask, especially since there are people here that need it more than me. I hope to be able to stock up on things at the end of the year. I got another credit card to pay off first, then I will allot $50 for stuff like rice, pasta, and canned goods. The dogs need supplies (rawhides and shampoo & Frontline) but they will have to wait. I order in bulk to save money and it is worth it to me to wait till I have the money to order $100 worth of stuff, and only have to worry with it once a year.

I need to get them back on Heartgard. I had a sick dog given to me and he literally died in my arms. I had no idea he had heartworms till I took him to a vet, and she told me that “your dog is gonna die” So I certainly don’t want to go thru that again.

This is what is so frustrating

This is what is so frustrating. I do remember reading that as well. It is so hard to figure out what is correct and what isn’t since most of the information comes from people trying to get you to sign up. I figure I will just go ahead and close everything I can. I’ll leave the one with my credit union since it has the lowest interest rate. But everything else will be history. Yikes. When I was stocking up for a possible strike, I bought a lot of top ramen. Safeway has it for 8 cents each right now. And a lot of past and rice packages are fairly cheap, yet filling.

Do you have a crock pot? I found one at a thrift store for $8. I learned to make the best split pea soup, just the way I like it. ( I don’t have to pick out the carrots and onions), and I was able to make a huge batch, then freeze it in servings. I was also able to buy roasts for $1.99 a pound, and then freeze it in containers. I can usually get 3 servings out of one small container. A couple rolls or a veggie with it, and I am set.

Do you have a local food bank? My sister recently lost her job and went to the food bank. Not only did they give her food, but they had cat food too. You might be able to get a bag of kibble. The eggs will have some protein and fat, but they need some form of meat source for taurine. Eventually, they can get sick without it.

Yes. I certainly learned this lesson. Now, I find myself planning for the worst rather than going into something overconfident. And I take smaller risks, risks that won’t hurt me badly if it doesn’t work out. I don’t ever want to make that mistake again.
