Well, I have survived possibly one of the longest months of the year work-wise. Tomorrow is my last day at the part-time job and I will miss the people but I need some more time for myself. Although we have been working like mad at our company as well, we did manage to take a walk on the beach this past Sunday just as the fog cleared off. The crabs are still here, it hasn't gotten cold enough for them to start burrowing in the sand yet. I like to overturn rocks and find the creatures beneath, but try and leave them in peace once I am done taking pictures.

The $288.26 was what I paid out of pocket. I also managed to redeem $92.25 in free groceries through points, store freebies and coupons - plus - I still have points left to redeem in future! Hopefully October will be just as low, as apparently this belt-tightening is paying off.
What we don't spend in groceries will be placed in our travel fund. As always, we try and save on those things that don't matter so we can use that money for doing things that make a difference in our lives like travelling. In this case we have just booked two nights away in late October to a nearby island for some peace and quiet. Due to working out of our home sometimes you just have to get away to take a day off!
