Oops! No Weekly Spending Update

I didn't do my weekly spending on the weekend for two reasons:

1. I was in bed all day Sunday with that cold and
2. I WAY over spent last week.

I am the first to admit that I had no control last week.  I bought lunches, I shopped online, I shopped at the mall.  And even though I know I should still write about what I spent....everyone makes mistakes....I'm just not going to.  But I do promise to do it from now on, regardless of my mistakes!

Productive Saturday

What a start to the weekend.  Last night was our Year End party at work.  We went bowling and it was awesome!  I forgot how much I liked bowling.

I was up early today, mostly because I have caught the dreaded cold that is going around, so I went and got groceries and put money on my laundry card all before 8:45am.  I decided to got to Sobeys this week as it was Dollar Days and I like to stock up whenever that is on.  I also had $5.00 off from my Sobeys points.  What a great way to start the day.

One I was home and had my groceries put away, I got my laundry done, dusted, swept, and did some dishes.  I finish my book....I Heart New York by Lindsay Kelk.  It was alright but not good enough for a review.  I'm planning to start reading Bunheads this evening.

Tomorrow is a busy day with a baby shower and meal planning.  I hope that the baby shower won't go too long.  

Hope that you all are having a wonderful productive day or a wonderful relaxing day....whichever you choose.

How much is going down the drain

One night last week while having a bath I got wondering how much money I wash down the drain on a daily basis....literally.  I know quite a few people have tons of products in their showers and although I don't have that much, I am guilty of having more than one of each item. 
Here is what my shower caddy looks like:

Top Shelf (from the left)
Fruit and Passion exfoliator body glove - received this as a Christmas gift about 8 years ago. I absolutely love it!
Bath and Body Works Sparkle Blackberry Woods Shower Gel - I got it on sale for $5.00.
Honey I Washed the Kids soap from Lush - this came in a gift set I ordered with a gift card from my brother and his family for Christmas.  I do cut all my Lush products so that I can get multiple uses out of them. This soap I cut in half.
Olive Condition from Dollarama - as I've stated in this post, I use this as shaving cream and not on my hair.  It cost $1.25.

Shower cap - I get a pack of eight if these from Dollarama for $1.25.

Bottom Shelf (from the left)
Head and Shoulders Dry Scalp shampoo - while I don't have dandruff, I do have dry scalp and this seems to be the only shampoo that helps it.  I don't use it everyday...maybe two or three times a week.  I buy it on sale for $5.99

Herbal Essence Color Me Happy Conditioner - nothing special but I love the way it smells.  It costs $2.99 at Walmart.
L'oreal Color Radiance Shampoo - this is my normal shampoo.  Again, nothing that special but it's reasonably priced at $3.99.

Purple Shampoo - I'm not sure of the brand as this is from our family cottage...we have a lot if iron in our water there but I like to use it in the city about once a week to keep my color from going brassy.
Cetaphil Gentle Skin Cleanser - this has been my yo to cleanser since I went to a dermatologist in high school.  I always get the big bottle.  This size costs $18.99 but I always have a coupon to use since I use their moisturizer as well and there is a coupon in the box.

Face cloth - this particular one is Fieldcrest Luxury.  The other brand I have is Nautica. These were wedding gifts.
I also have a cup in the back corner of my shower that holds a foot paddle from Shoppers Drug Mart that was $2.00, a Venus razor - refills cost $12.99, and a bikini razor - 3 pack for $5.00.
Overall I'd say that my shower contains a fairly small amount of amount and since I love all of the products that makes it even better.
How much are you washing down the drain?
