Monday Check-in!

I went over my estimate and it feels like I spent my whole weekend in grocery stores.

Friday I spent $32 at Trader Joes. I was hungry when I got there and bought some more prepared food than I had planned to. I ate a chicken pesto wrap when I got home since I was too hungry and tired to heat anything up and then fell asleep watching Carol.

$246 despite not getting trees or pots for my porch.
