    Thanks everyone!

    Nswef: Maybe prices are much cheaper where you are (I think MD?) but here we were paying $55 per carton in NH back in 2011, and I know they are over $10 per pack now in MA, so probably $80 - $90 per carton now in MA and I'll just guess about $75 per carton in NH.

    Our celebratory takeout cost a bit less than a 2012 NH carton of smokes!

    I wasn't going anywhere today so I didn't wash my hair saving some shampoo and hot water. It didn't feel greasy either. I have thought before that one benefit of aging is your hair dries out. Maybe I am finally getting there.

    Your hair and your skin dries out as you age. Your hair stops growing on your legs but you get it other weird places.

    The new employee at the gas station didn't program the pump to shut off at the amount I prepaid for so I got $2.20 in free gas. He was really confused - had it in his head that he owed me $6.50 but I am honest and was not going to take that. Finally another employee came over and got what I was saying and said it was their error and I didn't have to pay for the extra.

    New frugal for the new year- I’ve gone back to buying dog food at Costco. It comes out to one dollar a pound, and it’s decent quality food. I used it for many years, until the early weeks of the pandemic when everyone was overbuying everything. By the time I got there it was sold out and unavailable for many weeks. I switched to Chewy deliveries. Chewy is having trouble keeping up now, and their food is pushing $6/lb. $6 vs. $1. Uh huh. I’ll take the $1 please. I buy my gas there anyway. And a 35 pound bag lasts about 2.5 months.

    wow, mschrisgo2, that's a BIG price increase!! Motivated me to go check our Chewy autoship list.... the outdoor catfood has gone up 59 cents per 16 lbs, everything else is just pennies more at the moment, thank goodness. But I made a reminder/note to keep checking before my next delivery - I must confess that I tend to set up something like that and just let it ride, so thank you for the reminder to be aware!! I am struggling to find ways to cut more from our spending that we are willing to make at this time. I am very aware of what can be cut immediately should the situation demand, but at the moment, I'm not willing to do those things. I'm picking my frugal battles, lol. I'm a poor example of a frugalista at the moment ;-P

    Found some elastic waist banded pants I had put with my off season clothes and am wearing them rather than buy larger size jeans. I am tired of waist band welts in my stomach at the end of the day and trying to stay on budget for this month.
