Unplanned pizza expense and flipped the mattress

September 16th, 2012 at 02:54 am

I had quite a list of honey-do's for the hub this trip home. One was to flip the mattress, which we did tonight. I am hoping this will help with my neck. (He also popped my back, which clearly needed it as many times as it popped)We havent flipped it in a LONG time and it was showing. I am not sure how often we should do it...so I will google it and see for future reference.

DD2 and DD3 showed up just before dinner time. (They do this once in a while...lol) The hub and I had laid out steaks this morning to bbq...but there wasnt enough for 4 adults and 3 kids, so I put them in the fridge and ordered pizza. An unexpected expense and not a very diet friendly one- but it was quick and easy and everyone enjoyed it. We had the pizza delivered so before it arrived, I snacked on fresh watermelon. When the pizza finally arrived ($48) I just has two of the thinnest slices. Not a deal breaker, since I had only ate fruit and yogurt today. (Just because we were so busy)

So, $48 of unplanned spending will be split between the food budget and the entertainment budget.

I relaxed this afternoon looking at ipad budget aps. I didnt find one that I really liked yet, but havent given up. I would like to move my spreadsheet at work to something cloud based so I can access at home too. I have kept this budget for so long, I can do it in my head, but it would be nice to update my log at my convenience.

The hub went to bed at 730 tonight. It takes a few days for us to get on the same schedule.

I went to the store earlier today and got the Allegra (generic brand) that DD2 had recommended. I also picked up light bulbs, fruit, yogurt, spent $46. That comes off the food budget and I added it to the running total on the fridge.

Tomorrow the hub will bbq those steaks and the chicken breasts I layed out. THe chicken will be for dinner and a couple of lunches this next week.

    We used to flip the double sided mattress + rotate corners every other month. We now have a 'pillow top' mattress so I move the corners 1st Friday of every month as I change out the sheets every Friday AM.

    When I looked up the info package that came with the mattress set I was surprised to see they recommended reversing corners every single week!

    Before we had this type of mattress we would flip on the first day of spring and the first day of fall, and we rotated on the first day of summer and the first day of winter. It makes it easier to remember to do it by tying it to the seasons.

    Snafu and LR..I googled it and it was all over the board...weekly, monthly, twice a year...we will probably start doing this quarterly (seasonally)- which is much more often than I had been doing it. :P

    I've always heard to flip 2x a year.

    Have you looked at the YNAB software? The latest version is now available in "the cloud" if you have a dropbox account (free.) I don't remember if you have a smartphone or not (I'm thinking you didn't ...) but if you do, then if you get the app for android or ios, you can update all budgets via the "cloud" at point of purchase. Smile
