I've spent a lot today! Too much?!??!
I woke up and took my car in to get an oil change. It was a dirty old garage so instead of waiting and reading my book I took a walk. To a local coffee shop and bought a sandwich. There goes $5.20
I get back and my car is done. However I needed a new oil filter so that along with the oil change came to $76
Then I wanted to pick up BF a few things because he has been bored at his apartment with no cable, or internet and limited phone use. So I headed off to wal-mart. I bought him some movies and snacks and some cereal for myself that came with a free Adidas soccer t-shirt (soooo cute! I ordered them online today and it comes with free shipping!). That trip totalled $21. But I'm happy with that because I got a number of items and two soccer t-shirts coming. I ordered the one regular one and one blue one, it's cute!
I come home and start eating my sandwich and my mom calls and invites me to meet her at a local restaurant for lunch. We go and I have a delicious chicken salad. She paid, score!!
As I am leaving I pass the Pharmaplus and remember I have some coupons to redeem and I heard they were having some good sales this week. So I head there. I picked up 4 boxes of girl stuff (geeze that stuff is expensive), 2 deodorants for BF, a bodywash for BF, and a shampoo for myself all for $23. I saved $19 either by coupons or sales. I NEEDED one item, and the rest were just extras...bad GMC. Do you use coupons? I don't usually but I went to this site save.ca and you can pick the coupons you like and they will send them to you in the mail.
Thennnn I head to the bank. The EURO has hit a new 4 year low and so I decide to get $500 worth of EUROs. This cost me $660.20 CAD. It's a pretty good exchange rate compared to what it was a few months ago. It still could go down more but at least now I am set for the trip.
I then went to the clinic to renew a perscription but it turns out I forgot my health card at home, so went home and then back to the clinic. I waited for 40 minutes and then I had to go to my dentist's appointment. So yay I avoided another costly item, but boo I need to go back soon to get it and I wasted 40 minutes reading Oprah magazines.
I get to the dentist 15 minutes EARLY. They come and take me 10 minutes LATE. Does that annoy you? They said I have not had the big 360 x-ray thing done in 7 years so I need to do it along with my regular check up. Yay no cavities! Then I go to pay and it's $217. Yikes. I then go home and my mom asks me if I showed up late to my dentist appointment? I said no and that I was early. She said that they called at 4:03 asking where I was on the answering machine. Grrrr now THAT is annoying! I also didn't get a proper receipt, I just got a receipt saying my payment went through so I am going to have to go back to get a REAL receipt. I hope they didn't charge me a late fee or anything!!
All together I spent $1002.40 today EEEEK!! I hope your day was easier on the wallet than mine!
