My Hubby came in the door real sheepish yesterday toting two big tubs of--cookie dough. He'd ordered these from a coworker's kid way before our new Frugal Life. Then he told me he'd also bought gourmet popcorn from one of the cleaning staff in his office. He did order one tub the kind of cookies he thought I would like and I know he hates the smell of popcorn, so he did try to help them out by buying stuff he thought I would use. But the cost! Oh well, we laughed and tried to figure out where to put it in the budget. I hated to put it in groceries cos I wanted to track our ACTUAL groceries. And it wasn't charity cos we got an actual product. And we don't have a miscellaneous cos we could just dump everything in there. I said this was an OOPS. Hubby said put a category in there for OOPS! So we now have a category for "what was I thinking," or a category for "being the generous, shirt off my back kind of guy" he always has been. I'd rather he be the way he is. It's going to rain tomorrow. Maybe I'll make the Hubby some cookies....

    Could you put the cookie dough in the freezer and give it and the popcorn for extended family Christmas gifts? and then take the money from your Gifts Category?

    Someone in my office is selling that cookie dough. I bought some last year and it's good. Not worth the price, but it will make a nice gift.
