Saturday Spending

Well, I finally broke my long streak of not going to the grocery store. Strangely, it wasn't actually oranges that finally made me go. It was bread flour. I don't know how to function without flour. Though of course, while I was there I figured I might as well pick up another orange. I'd honestly forgotten what my budget for the summer was, so I had to go look. Apparently it's $40 per month.
