This evening I made a quick dash to the higher end grocery store. Time is a precious commodity here, and I knew I could accomplish most of the week's shopping in 30 minutes. In, out, free newspaper because I spent over a certain amount. Groceries tucked away, a list of meals for the weeks hangs on the fridge, the discarded newspaper slated for the compost bin, and a useful coupon tacked to the bulletin board.
Enjoy the final day of this long holiday weekend. We are sticking close to home, Tuesday brings a new phase of life. One child at the Madison public schools another in the 4k program and a private child care center. Lots of driving to and from, with a legal practice squished in between. Planning ahead will help minimize chaotic spending if we are stretched too thin.
