Ok so I am not totally disappointed with this week’s spending breakdown, the worst it seems was household – it appears we’re spending more on groceries as we’re doing the one-off shopping trips for misc. items that weren’t accounted for in the weekly grocery shopping trip – these items aren’t normally purchased.  However, I do have a teenage boy in the house now and that means more food spending for the next several years, as anyone whose been around a teenage boy will tell you they eat like bottomless pits LOL!  And, my son is no exception, seems he’s eating more than ever lately.

Next week I intend to make the payment for the taxes on Silver and then we’ll be done paying bills for now.  That’s the last of them as far as I can see.  Then again you never know.

Still trying to figure out how to make the money in savings work for us – the Apple stock I bought is doing well, we’ve made a small amount of money off of our existing stocks in the last week, so no complaints there.

Well that’ll be enough from me for now!
