Moaning Monday

Not a lot to moan about today.
My main gripe is that when I got home this afternoon it was as cold, or colder, inside the house as the outside. I was trying to type with gloves on, my feet were numb, and no matter what I did, I couldn't get warm.
But I'm warm now, so I guess I can't really moan about being cold anymore.
Other than that...
It's Monday. That's a moan all of its own.
I did have a fantastic experience today. Thanks to our grocery store's incentive-to-shop-there program and a coupon for addition gas points, I ended up paying 79.9 cents per gallon this morning. You can get up to 30 gallons, which meant I very nearly filled my tank for less than twenty-five bucks. (The Suburban has a 42-gallon tank, but I had a little gas already) That's pretty sweet. The receipt gives you the amount you saved - which was thirty-six dollars. I'm saving that one.
Tall Tale Tuesday will be making a comeback tomorrow. Wait for it.
I can't promise it'll be a weekly thing quite yet, but we'll see what happens.
That's all...

Thanks to you, we'll be saving .90 a gallon later this week! And my freezer is full of meat.

:) Sweet!
I usually avoid the bonus gas points because most of what you have to buy is stuff I don't use. It doesn't make sense to buy it just for the extra points. Kind of like using a coupon just because you have one. Meat is different though.
.90 off is fantastic!!

Yeah, I think I've only used them once, for the same reason. Even the meat was a little iffy, because the breasts didn't look that great, I don't use ground beef that high in fat, and the most of the other stuff we don't usually eat. But I made it work! :)
