Would you believe me if I said life had been a bit busy the last few days? I've managed (somehow) to offload the majority of my belongings (selling what I could), including the left over food.
Left over food? What's that?
Easy, I bought a bottle of apple juice that I never drank. That actually got tossed after spending some quality time fermenting in my car. I also had flour, spices, baking soda and powder, half a (small) vat of yeast, most of a bag of sugar, a pound and a half of lentils (the half actually started @ Moms, and she was less than thrilled to get it back...), Um...I'm sure there was other stuff. I *know* there was, actually, but I didn't sleep last night, so I'm a bit fuzzy...
So far as money totals go, I am not the best keeper of actual really for-reals budgets. Really not. But I grabbed up all the receipts I could find (and guessed on some of the others...) and came up right around $400 for most food including non-chip cheating. Um, and excluding the month I just kinda took off. I think I spent about $150 that month...
For cheating, really it was probably about another $500. I don't see how it could really have been more. I know how much money I had last year, and how much was left after paying for everything else that I couldn't play with. I probably averaged about a bag of chips a week, if you spread it all out and included the couple (several?) times I ate the chips but didn't admit to it.
I ate over at moms, I don't know, maybe once a month? Once every other month? I got a meal out of dad around my birthday. Mom also probably supplied me with around $50-100 worth of veg and random other stuff. I'm not totally sure of that number, actually. I'll check with her when I get where I'm going.
Those numbers really don't sound right, though. That puts me at a total food cost of close to $100 a month, and I'm pretty sure I *never* had that much. Maybe including the soda, but I doubt even then. Bookkeeping FAIL, I suspect.
Or else I wasted a heck of a lot more money than I thought I did.
Now, off to grab some food from this here sky club before I have to leave and catch my forking flight. You know a day is going well when your only really clear thought is "what in the name of santa claus am I forking doing!!!???"
Bear will be very sad.
