I'm going to be staying in a hotel again. I'll be in an industrial area with some basic food. It'll be fun to get me out of the house and I'll get to the place I'll be staying sooner rather than later. Anyways I will be seeing the area I'll be living in over a couple of days when I am in the hotel.
I'm going to try and sneak in some basic food stuff to see if I can have a few easy meals in a hotel I'll be in for a couple of days. It won't be anything fancy as I'll be in an industrial area in a hotel. Lucky I can get around and I will be able to get places. The food won't be fancy. mainly soups and sandwiches and stuff like that.
so i learned a few things about budgeting while watch the videos by Jordan Page. This includes eating what you have on hand and going to the store for only a few items or else getting creative. This applies not only for food but also for things like other "consumables" which includes medicine, cleaning products, baby needs such as formula and diapers etc. once my family and I went and spent about 40 dollars on a weeks worth of groceries with us eating what we had on hand and eating out 2x before getting emergency supplies on a Friday. If you have a huge stock of something that would last a while don't buy it. When i get low on my OTC medicine i get more. Another example is BOGO sales. let's say theres a BOGOF (buy one get one free). The sale might cost a little more up front but you'll have more than what you need NOW but in the long run it'll be easier to shop. Same with the buy as big as you can afford. Lets go back to the BOGOF. Let's say it's for a larger size of mouthwash for example but you get 2 large things of mouthwash or rice or whatever. If you get a large enough thing on sale you'll be walking away with items not only at a discount but whenever you change things like recycle the old case of whatever you bought like mouthwash you also don't have to run to the store and buy it.

I just got over a mild chest cold. I got super sick last summer and as a result I have some stuff for my lungs to help when I get sick. Is relied on my maintenance lung medicine (a long term inhaler and allergy medicine) but with the lung issues I'd had I'd needed a rescue inhaler too. I personally hate my lung medicine but it's good to have in case of something like this
