Weekly Spending Report: 08/10-16/2014

I worked every day this week, so I had to sneak out and run errands one evening. I really hate shopping in the evening after working all day, but you have to do what you have to do sometimes.  Luckily Howard cooperated and wasn't fussy.  I managed to get through CVS and pick up most of the freebies, as well as Giant, where I stocked up on enough ice cream to last the summer.
