Did you pay for anything today? Bills, luxuries, food, entertainment? This is a NO GUILT list. Just add what you've spent money on today to help you be accountable for your habits. smile

I also have a thread in this forum on what you have SAVED today. smile

Okay, spending. I will start with yesterday: I bought some chocolate vodka. So far nothing today, but this will be a big spending week as the bills are almost due.

I treated myself to a latte, only because I had to drop something off at my daughter's school.

I had an expensive weekend, but my daughter's first high school dance is in two weeks. I treated her to an early haircut and her first makeup. We also had a trip to a frugal shop so she could buy some used clothing. She found a great pair of shoes, a couple wool sweaters and a couple jackets, a shirt and hat.

I did okay while traveling for eight days. Not great, but not bad. I bought a few magnets, a fedora, a skirts, some socks and car sticker. Oh, and fuzzy dice for a friend. smile

Also a few drinks and a lunch buffet.

Now that I am home, I am back to super frugal. I have some bills to pay this week (phone), and i need to buy gas for the car. Other than that I should be good for the rest of the month.

I have not have wheat grass juice since i lived in Boulder. I remember liking the taste. smile

I bought a half a tank of gas yesterday and then a movie ticket and a couple of beers. That was a spendy day for me. I did bring my own food bars to eat from home, so i saved myself a dinner out.

Re: What did you SPEND money on today? - 04/06/12 10:55 PM

I bought a 10 foot DC extension cord for my 140 watt inverter. $5 from Walmart - was cheaper than the one on amazon. It works well!

For $4, I also went to a thrift store and picked up some used AC to DC chargers for my various appliances. I got ones with different sized plugs. I am putting all my DC items in a cloth bag and keeping them to use in my car, until I get a nice deep cycle battery for my home. smile

Re: What did you SPEND money on today? - 04/10/12 12:49 PM

Isn't it great to have a non-spending day, Jilly? I always feel so "accomplished" on those days. Unfortunately today started with me paying my cable bill, but I started eating leftovers for breakfast at home a couple of months ago instead of going to McD's or stopping at the supermarket for a bagel and soda.

Saving quite a bit of money that way!

The only money I spent yesterday was 50 cents for a bottle of water from the work room at school!
Posted By: Jilly

Re: What did you SPEND money on today? - 04/17/12 01:14 AM

Dianne and Vintage GS, those are great non-spending experiences!

This week i paid my water, internet, sewer and mortgage bills. my electric is covered right now from an assistance charity, so that is nice, and I am learning to decrease my electrical wattage each day so the assistance will stretch out for as long as possible.

I have not bought anything else lately. I do need to pick up cat food, but that is really it.
Posted By: Jilly

Re: What did you SPEND money on today? - 04/24/12 10:20 PM

Yesterday I bought cat food (without even a coupon or sale, boo), some bachelor buttons seeds (edible flowers), a start of garlic chives (yum), a self reliance magazine, some hair color and coloring shampoo, some mexican beer (on sale) and five one dollar bottles of seltzer water (i have fresh lemons from the food pantry to flavor them with). I was able to use food stamps on the water.

Everything but the cat food and the chives was from CVS, where I had a 25% off coupon, plus ten dollars in Extra Care Bucks and from using the Green Bag Tag. So at CVS, i really just paid for the beer out of pocket, and everything else ended up free.

Today I will pick up my meds from CVS and will again use my Green Bag Tag. That gives me a free buck every four times I use it. What a nice system. And my meds are free for me through my health care program. It all works out nicely.

Re: What did you SPEND money on today? - 04/29/12 02:49 AM

Yesterday I used up the remainder of this month's food stamps on some fresh food, and also picked up some bread and produce from the Cornville food pantry. So no expenses there.

I did spend six dollars on a crank battery charger for phones and other electronic devices. I am really into solar and crank electrical models, and thought six dollars was a great price for something like this. I do have a solar charger for my phone, but a crank unit will work even at night or on dark days. Plus i get to write about it from a frugal POV - it takes no electrical utilities to use. smile

I got the charger from a preparedness store. I love going into that shop.

So it was a six dollar day.

I am finding it very illuminating to see what exactly my expenses are!

Re: What did you SPEND money on today? - 04/29/12 09:30 PM

Yesterday I went to Amazon and picked up another power switch - this one is the simple two prong kind - as the price had dropped on it and i needed one for my laptop.

I also picked up a set of sweat wrist bands to help me stay cool this summer. Sounds paradoxical, but i will be using them to wipe my brow when i go hiking. Those were also very cheap.

Lastly i also grabbed a set of USB heating fingerless gloves to use when I am on the computer in the winter. Normally I would have waited until winter to pick this up, but this was another sale price I did not want to miss. It might even come in handy for camping this summer, so I am not complaining. They even have little depictions of Pooh Bear on them. heh. smile

So i spent $13 for the three things. None of these were actual needs, but the first and last item were bought with the idea of saving watts in my house and lowering my electrical bills.

Re: What did you SPEND money on today? - 05/01/12 07:05 AM

Today I spent...nothing! I got a free dinner at a free workshop about better living. I actually am getting paid $10 per class with this 12-class workshop (plus free dinners). YAY!

I did have to drive out there but hopefully will be able to find a free ride out through the guidance clinic going forward.

I also found a new used bookstore, and there are certainly books I want - but I am going to compile an assortment of my own books to trade in, too keep the price as low as possible.

Posted By: Jilly

Re: What did you SPEND money on today? - 05/01/12 10:53 PM

Bills and food! The boring expenses. smile Good on you for not buying anything else, Debbie. smile

Mostly, people's biggest expenses are housing, utilities and food, in that order. All of those things can be adjusted and trimmed, unless you are locked into a mortgage or have to stay in a particular apartment, for whatever reason.

I have the lowest possible mortgage I was able to find and I both have food stamps and use food pantries for my food, as well as doing the super-coupon thing. So for me, food is a really minimal expense.

Utilities is the thing I have the most control over and is the most interesting thing to save for me right now.

--------
I should start to gather up books for trade, so I can spend less on the used bookstore on thursday.

I don't expect I will have other expenses this week, except maybe i will top off my gas tank before the prices rise again.

Re: What did you SPEND money on today? - 05/02/12 01:43 AM

Good for you, Deanna! that is a really small expense - the decaf - you did great!

And i like how the kids spent their own money on their treats. That's a perfect way to handle non-necessities and children, IMO.

It's so good to see you in the forums. smile
Posted By: Deanna - New Age

Re: What did you SPEND money on today? - 05/02/12 02:28 AM

I think so too! And it teaches the kids how to watch their money. I remember the look on my daughter's face when one day she had $60 to spend (she'd earned it the old fashioned way - by working for it). Then she decided she wanted some hair bobbles or something. The cashier rang up $40.

Another time she was shopping at her favorite store in the mall - and I had her brother take her over their while I hung out in Barnes and Noble. He called me to tell me she'd gone $12 over what she had. I just had to laugh... I told him to tell her she just needed to put something back. She was really expecting me to come bail her out with an extra $12.

Re: What did you SPEND money on today? - 05/02/12 03:22 AM

It's good that she is seeing firsthand how quickly expenses rack up.

Re: What did you SPEND money on today? - 05/02/12 04:29 PM

Jilly....I don't have a choice but to be frugal and to only buy absolute necessities due to being unemployed and looking for work. My unemployment compensation has long run out, so every penny counts these days.

I love your money saving tips on this forum!
Posted By: Jilly

Re: What did you SPEND money on today? - 05/05/12 06:31 AM

Debbie, I've talked to a lot of people about frugality, and I do try to tell them that being frugal is actually kind of fun. It's like a game for me, to decrease my expenses to the lowest possible point, and still have plenty to live on. It's a mindset.

I know your situation isn't exactly fun for you, but it's great experience for when you are working and want to SAVE money in case another bad situation arises.

I hope you find a job soon! Looking and interviewing and waiting is no fun at all.

I'm glad you like my tips! I do think some people might see some of my advice as extreme, but anyone can certainly read what I offer and then dial it back a bit.

I do have an example to set, after all. smile

------

Yesterday i got a free dinner at my Getting Ahead workshop (and I actually get paid $10 to go to each class!) and also exchanged some of my books for 'new' books at the used bookstore. I love new used books!

I did have to drive to Cottonwood, but i carpooled with a friend who gave me three dollars for gas.

I have to admit i did buy an expensive craft draft beer at a local bar after class. One pint came to $6.45! Yikes!

I should stick to my $1.50 beers in my hometown pub. smile

Today: no expenses. YAY!

Zero expenses today. Weekends are too easy. smile

This week i will be spending money on gas for the car, and my mortgage and utility bills.

I will also need to pick up cat food again this week - they go through it so fast! Not to mention the ferals that come through the cat door and eat it too. I try to look the other way. I am a sucker like that. Don't they know how limited my means are? wink

Re: What did you SPEND money on today? - 05/08/12 07:29 PM

Picked up milk and found out that frozen bagged veggies were on sale so I got some of those too.

Went to the dollar store after that and picked up a picture frame and a pack of three toothbrushes. Also got a greeting card there for 50 cents. Spent only $2.50 plus tax in that store.
Posted By: Jilly

Re: What did you SPEND money on today? - 05/09/12 05:05 AM

debbie, that's a great inexpensive day. i LOVE the dollar store. It almost feels like not shopping at all, or like you aren't using real money. It's a giddy feeling! But for reals, if I keep tossing everything I like into a basket, it does add up, doesn't it? I have to keep reminding myself to put things back!

I went to a dollar store today, and to a thrift store that was having a 50% off sale.

At thrift store
.25 staple opener + misc folder clips
.50 ace bandage, lg, for first aid kit
1.00 vintage black enamel skillet
5.00 my big splurge - a table fan that uses only 15 watts! WOW. That is almost negligible in watts! I feel so silly being all excited over fans, but I really am going to go start a thread on fans right now. Me = watt geek.

At dollar store
$6 six gallon size bins to hold my rice and noodles
$1 grabby thingie for when I go picking up recyclables from in the bushes (out here bushes have spines!)
$1 set of four square food container things that will fit in my dorm fridge (to encourage me to cook my eggs/veggies and set them aside as meals for later in the week)
$1 - car USB port
$1 - kindle foldable LED light

And some food that I used food stamps with, plus i got two boxes of food from the food bank tonite. smile

So expense-wise, $16.75 today. A big day for me. The fan was an unplanned expense, but with the low watt use I expect to get that money back. smile Also, it was half price... wink

Re: What did you SPEND money on today? - 05/09/12 12:29 PM

Jilly - You my dear are the frugal queen! queen I love your tips!

You're right, the dollar store can definitely add up! I also find the need to be careful because sometimes you can actually find the same item cheaper at another store like Walmart, like dish soap.

I also find it very difficult to not spend during the week. I'm always forgetting my lunch at home. The kids need something...etc... Weekends are usually easier if I keep my bottom parts at home...LOL...
Posted By: Jilly

Re: What did you SPEND money on today? - 05/10/12 03:36 AM

Dianne, I do try to be the frugal queen! Thank you. And it's frustrating to buy something there and then see it less than a dollar at a big box store or a drugstore sale. There's an art to the dollar store shopping...

Now you gave me an idea to write an article on how to shop frugally at the dollar stores. hm...

Re: What did you SPEND money on today? - 05/11/12 11:53 PM

Today, I spent $10+ on dish washing liquid, toilet bowl cleaner and a shower cleaner. Should have just spent $2.69 on a bottle of Boone's Farm wine and not worried about cleaning and washing dishes.

Jilly, a $1.50 draft brew is a terrific deal!
Posted By: Jilly

Re: What did you SPEND money on today? - 05/12/12 01:14 AM

Jenny, lol about Boone's Farm. heh. wink

I admit i have a weakness for cleaning agents. I love having a cleaner for everything, and trying out new ones...it's like a little fetish. I am learning to use only a few items for all my cleaning though, like vinegar, baking soda and hydrogen pyroxide. Also, one squirt of dish soap can be added to a larger amount of water to also clean most things.

I have not made my own laundry soap yet, but will experiment when mine is all used up. smile

Re: What did you SPEND money on today? - 05/15/12 05:56 AM

Today: $8 on a cheap 12 pack of beer. I can't afford wine anymore. frown But i guess 12 cans of beer should last me awhile.

To truly be frugal i need to learn to brew my own!

Anyway, not bad. I was able to get a few free cat food samples so the cats can hold out while I get to the store that has the food i get them.

Re: What did you SPEND money on today? - 05/19/12 10:41 PM

Today I bought two ebooks from kindle for 2.99 each and they were terrible. So i returned them. Which means today, so far, no expenses.

Nothing yesterday.

Thursday was a spendy day. I bought cat food from walmart, a small used coffee pot, a 120 volt warming travel coffee cup for the car, and a vacuum food saver. Prices were $5, $3 and $3, respectively. Cat food was $9. So it was a $20 day. That is a lot for me.

That is great! You did good. Food is one of those things it's hard to regret spending money on; we need food. With family, it's often a celebratory thing. So it's not like little luxuries you didn't need.

Food and family seems to be a common theme with people and spending.

Re: What did you SPEND money on today? - 05/31/12 06:41 AM

Today I bought an angus burger at mcdonalds. I NEVER eat fast food - this was a special treat for me for no real good reason. It was almost $5.

I also got some free tupper-type containers from the free box at the Senior Center Thrift Store.

Yesterday I bought nothing.

Monday I bought a few things at ACE hardware that were free and almost free rebate items. After i get my money back, I will only have spent a few dollars for some metal glue, a bottle of bug spray, a spray water pressure bottle (gallon size for my outdoor shower) and a bit of rope. I like it when ACE has freebies. smile

Over the weekend i bought nothing.

And on Friday I spent $10 on a beverage for myself and one for a friend at a nice wine bar.

I need to be better about keeping up with this, so i can track my spending and make a report for you guys. Let me think - last week i got my meds and vitamins from CVS (free with my health plan), and picked up some seltzer and food items with my food stamps.

I got a few bags of food from the dented can store using food stamps. I love that store. smile

I did get $25 in free gas from a low income voucher program, and will be getting another three vouchers over the course of June.

5 solar stake lights for one dollar each at walmart - $5

Posted By: Jilly

Re: What did you SPEND money on today? - 06/09/12 07:35 AM

Yeah, buying gifts always throws off a budget, don't it? smile

I bought a couple of beers the other night, but i think that's all i bought all week. Oh, and I spent $11 cash on used books (i earned some cash selling scrap metal and allowed myself some books and beers!).
Posted By: Jilly

Re: What did you SPEND money on today? - 06/21/12 04:58 AM

I spent money this week on my mortgage, sewer bill, and ten dollars monday night at the tavern.

Last week my family was visiting and I bought a few used books ($4), a loaf of artisan bread for my dad for father's day ($5), a bottle of $6 wine, and I think that is all.

I am trying to get assistance on my water bill from the SHARE program, which would be great. And since i now have my eye prescription ready to go, I am waiting on my appointment with Lions Club for new free frames.

Re: What did you SPEND money on today? - 06/23/12 08:31 AM

I spent another ten at my pub this week. That is $20 in one week, which for me is outrageous. However there will be no pub tabs next week and no pub tabs last week. I don't think i went pubbing in the first week of june - i have to check.

I have managed to avoid any and all eating out, however. I just can't afford that. if i have to meet someone at a place there is food, i make sure to eat at home first so i am full and won't be tempted.

So i think it's evened out for june...i just feel better when i only spend $5 for a night out.

Re: What did you SPEND money on today? - 07/02/12 10:31 PM

I had Dan and his mom staying with me this week, and guests always cost money, what with driving around, eating out and shopping excursions. Also i had to plug in the RV as a guest house and that consumed a lot of energy with the AC unit running continually.

I bought:
$13 in used books at Bookmans
$10 in beer/tip
$6 in closet hooks from ACE hardware

I think there was more? I don't remember. I really need to be better about logging in to this thread more often.

Debbie and Vintage, you are doing a wonderful frugal job!

Vintage, not going out is a GREAT way to not spend money. Unless you end up on Amazon.com...hehehe

This has been a good week. My month's food stamps came through and i used the various store sales to buy the food and earn money back coupons from Frys, Alco, CVS and Walgreens. I managed to get a free ten dollar gas card from CVS plus some extra bucks from my quarterly purchases and green bag tag uses. I got $28 in register rewards from Wags, two coupon bucks from Fry's for picking up gatoraid, and a ten dollar Alco card from spending $50 on food.

One of the cereal boxes I got from CVS also has a mail in rebate in the back to cover the total cost of the item! More money back!

I figure that if i am going to buy food with the stamps anyway, it's better to buy food that gives me a reward. Then i use the rewards to buy non-food.

And I can plan my meals around the foods i end up with or at least put in the pantry for later use.

Today I used a free gas voucher for $25, got some more walgreens register rewards from buying food, and filled up about 25 gallons of water in my water jugs at the Catholic Charities, for free.

I needed the water, as I have my city water turned off. So i plan to do some washing in the Wonder Wash this weekend - yay! Clean clothes!

I wanted to do some of my barters, but i got out too late and everything was closing up. So i had to prioritize. I will try to do my bartering next week.

Anyway, it was a free day for me bc of the food stamps. smile

Re: What did you SPEND money on today? - 07/07/12 05:29 AM

today I spent just over $20. I topped off my gas tank at the local neighborhood store, they have good gas prices and 10 cents off on fridays. I spent $1 on a soda, which I admit I didn't need.
A friend gave me two large skeins of high quality German sock yarn, so I should get a few projects and patterns for my site out of that.
Money has gotten a little tight for us, and I am going to get serious about living well and frugally. It amazes me how fast I get spoiled. I want to come up with a long term plan so my family can reach some long term goals.

Re: What did you SPEND money on today? - 07/08/12 01:04 AM

Lisa, that's pretty good on gas. What place has ten cent friday discounts? The best gas I find around here is usually at Frys, where you buy food and then good gas discounts at their pumps. Frys is also known as Krogers.

I want to hear more about your long term plan? How do you want to get serious about frugal living? I can totally help if you want to bounce your ideas off me. I like to help.:)
------------------
Me: I spent around 50 cents today for a few gallons of nice drinking water from the 15 cent kiosk in front of my local grocery store. There are kiosks all over town, but most cost 25 cents or 20 cents a gallon. i like the 15 cent ones. smile

Reverse Osmosis drinking water is really yummy. I find i drink more water when i love the taste of it. It becomes my favorite treat.

Re: What did you SPEND money on today? - 07/18/12 02:05 AM

Last thursday I spent eleven dollars at the tavern, but that was all I have spent so far this month except for bills. This week i did pay my mortgage and sewer bill, and I will be paying ten dollars towards a traffic ticket this week too.

I managed to get some donated bags of cat food yesterday, which is nice and will help a lot.

And tonite I have to spend $15 in Extra Bucks and Register Rewards at CVS and Walgreen (they expire tonite, so i have to go down and pick out some things to buy for free, YAY. Free is fun).
Posted By: Jilly

Re: What did you SPEND money on today? - 07/18/12 05:35 AM

Okee dokee. I used my free extra bucks and register rewards and got some freebies. I did miscalculate a little and had to shell out two dollars and seven cents at walgreens, though.

The trick with walgreens register rewards is that you have to have an item for every coupon/register reward. So with five RRs you have to have five items. So i was forced to run around and find three filler items to use all the RRs.

If this sounds complicated, that's because it is. smile

CVS Extra Bucks are MUCH easier to redeem. You can stack them all together for just one item if you wanted. But then, it's easier to earn Register Rewards than Extra Bucks. So there is sort of a trade off.

Next time I will take more time (they were about to close tonite) and figure out how to walk out of there without opening the wallet at all.

I have another handful of RRs ($12) to use up by thursday, so I will come back and report on that.
Posted By: Jilly

Re: What did you SPEND money on today? - 07/20/12 08:02 AM

I used my register rewards today and did relly well. I made a couple of mistakes and ended up spending almost three dollars, because the walgreens money has a lot more rules to follow than CVS money. I can usually get out of CVS without spending anything.

I did manage to use some product coupons with the rewards, which is great, but that also means you have to add more products to the checkout! I usually grab packs of ramen noodles to cover the extras, but then i go over a little bit in terms of money.

In any case, I was able to pick up a free $12 item using RRs; i got a Flat Fix It for my car. I have it now in the jeep with me in case i have a tire blow out (on the many dirt roads here). This makes me feel safer driving, and i would not have been able to afford picking this up without acquiring register rewards to do so.

The key is to buy things you need, but wait until there is a register rewards sale (or CVS sale) to do so. Then use the RRs on things you would like to have, or on the things that never go on sale.

I hope this is coming across in a way that makes sense. I don't want to write an article on how to shop at Walgreens until I feel i can explain the rules properly.

In other news, I did manage to only buy things at CVS today that would earn me Extra Bucks and I used a red machine coupon that gave me $4 back. So i spent nothing, got a bunch of things I needed, and earned another $8 in extra bucks for next week.

Hopefully next week they will go back to having the gas card freebies.

Re: What did you SPEND money on today? - 07/20/12 12:26 PM

Yesterday I spend $13.50 on gas. The kids' have multiple activities everyday that they need taken to. It is too far for them to walk plus it wouldn't be healthy for them to be out in this heat for that long. Hopefully the gas will last me for 5-6 days.
Posted By: Jilly

Re: What did you SPEND money on today? - 07/22/12 07:26 AM

Hi Vintage! Yeah, gas is one of those things. It costs too much, but we need it to get around. It's really my hardest thing to budget. If I had kids I don't know how I'd deal with it. And yes, it is too hot to walk right now - you don't want to be dealing with heat exhaustion!

For me, i try to drive as little as possible, combine errands, walk when I can (when not over 100 degrees out - yuck), try to conserve the gas while driving (experimenting with hypermiling)...and stay at home a lot.

I also have a little errand trailer set up for my bike, but it is also too hot to be cycling!

Today I stayed home, like I do a lot, so I spent nothing. It's fun to work on eating up my perishable foods, instead of buying more all the time.

Bummer. I had saved up eighteen dollars, which for me is about all the money I have to spend in a month. And someone stole it out of my wallet.

I am grateful they left behind the wallet and purse, but that is low. Stealing from someone on food stamps with no income. frown

I was really looking forward to picking up some Hot Spot, to get the urine and poop out of my fabrics here (the kitten I am taming has digestive issues). I also needed some containers from the dollar store. I could have gotten a whole bunch of needed things with that money.

Okay, I feel better about the theft now. It could have been worse. Moving on.

Re: What did you SPEND money on today? - 08/01/12 06:53 AM

Okay. I found out this week i have to use my debit card ten times a month to make POS purchases. Or i get a ten dollar fee. WTF?

Does anyone else know about this? I have Wells Fargo and have been with them since the early 90s.

In any case, I have been trying to make tiny debit card purchases. I am up to four. I bought - a 9 cent folder at walgreens, a decaf coffee, a can of cat urine enzymes, and a bottle of seltzer water.

This really is silly.

Posted By: Jilly

Re: What did you SPEND money on today? - 08/07/12 04:06 AM

I think i am up to six POS purchases and need to have ten by the tenth. This is crazy. I was going so well with the not spending any cash plan. Now I HAVE to spend cash.

I went to the dollar store today and got a few things I cuold use, but nothing I actually needed.

I need a better plan or a different bank (WELLS FARGO, you are peeving me off!)
Posted By: Jilly

Re: What did you SPEND money on today? - 08/11/12 11:43 PM

I am still irritated at Wells Fargo. They haven't returned the fee to my account. And apparently i need to make two more purchases this month to prevent another service charge. Or more. It's hard to tell by looking at my online statement. I am super annoyed.
Posted By: Lori - Marriage

Re: What did you SPEND money on today? - 08/12/12 02:09 AM

Jilly, I did not know that about Wells Fargo. But I do make more than ten POS charges a month. frown

You really inspire me. What a great challenge, though, to see how little you can spend each month. I am careless about spending and tend to be impulsive.

We went grocery shopping today, and I used coupons for the first time in a long time. They tempt me to buy products I typically wouldn't buy. Today, we had to buy sundries that add a lot to our bill, like shaving razors, deodorant, toothpaste, toilet paper. As for food items, I needed olive oil and that is pricey. It was on sale though.

Brought my hubby which seems to change what we put into the cart.

Re: What did you SPEND money on today? - 08/12/12 06:36 PM

Jilly, I paid the monthly bills today. I just wanted to chime in on the Wells Fargo debit card. As I understand it, the banks are looking for any way they can to make money. As if those huge bailouts weren't enough! I think they have realized that people caught on to how dangerous credit cards are to their finances and went to using debit cards. Now the banks figure that's where they can get the money.

I, too, try to stick with paying cash and I am inspired by your frugal lessons. Wouldn't it be lovely to find a way to beat the banks?

Lori, there are secrets to using coupons to make things almost free. Just using them in general never really seems to be that helpful. I need to start a coupon using thread.

These things you mentioned:shaving razors, deodorant, toothpaste, toilet paper - no one should ever pay more than 50 cents for these items. smile

Good job, debbie! There must have been a special on cards?

Sandra, I will totally do this. do you have a walgreens or CVS near you? That is my area of expertise with buying things for almost free.

Today I bought an herbal tea at a coffee shop, and earlier this week i had to spend $67 to fill my tank with gas, since I am camping for the next month or so.

I did turn off my electric at the breaker, so that will save me some money this month. smile

Re: What did you SPEND money on today? - 08/20/12 10:09 PM

I've been spending a lot of time in this bookstore cafe, and picking up teas and pastries to justify hogging a table all day.

So i've actually been spending between $3-$5 each day while camping. This is actually on the expensive end for me. I need to find a better way to get a table and wifi i think.

Maybe a supermarket cafe?

Re: What did you SPEND money on today? - 09/03/12 01:35 AM

I bought a couple dozen eggs today, but I had to go to Whole Foods. I like organic eggs from free range hens, and the farmer whom I usually buy my eggs from does not have any available right now. With the hot weather and the older hens he won't have eggs for at least 6 months while he raises some chicks to be laying hens. I don't like commercial eggs that are cheaper. The hens live an unhealthy lifestyle in cramped cages, and the eggs to me have no taste. So until I can find another farm, if I can, I will have to pay more money for my eggs frown

That is one expense I was hoping to avoid. Last fall I stocked up on the farm eggs and coated them with mineral oil to keep them fresh. I had farm eggs until the end of March, even though the farm was closed for the winter season.

I hit the dollar store again for some needed greeting cards. You sure can't beat 2 for $1.00. I walked out of there with 4 cards for $2 and change. You can't get one card for that in a lot of places.

I bought nothing today, nor all weekend. Being home sick helps! Good thing I already had leftover Nyquil, Chloreseptic and Excedrin PM.

On Friday I did purchase three episodes on Amazon of Project Runway. Total was $6. I was really fed up with the Lifetime video player and I consider this a worthwhile expense!

Still sick and still lying mostly abed. I did get out and see my case manager today, and that's all I accomplished. Still, I didn't buy anything, so no money was spent today.

Since it is the new month, I will be paying bills this week...But those are fixed costs. I really don't need to buy anything right now - I have medicines, books, food, cat food and internet.

I do have some free Extra Bucks to spend at CVS with the new quarter, so maybe I will get down there tomorrow if I feel better. I could use more kitty litter and canned cat food.

Re: What did you SPEND money on today? - 01/03/13 05:20 AM

I find that purchasing or renting movies and tv episodes with Amazon is really nice - i don't have any late fees, and I don't have to brave poor driving conditions. I recently purchased episode 1 of Dr. Who season 7, which hasn't aired yet here in the states. It was a only a few dollars. I can wait for the whole season to air, but it was really fun to get to watch one episode before anyone else I know has seen it.

I spent about $5 today. I grabbed a coffee and oatmeal at a coffee stand. It was a treat for myself when I had been out and about town this morning.

Hi Lisa! I do have lots of places with free wifi I can use. Library, chamber of commerce, coffeeshop, wine bar, mcdonalds and starbucks.

That is really cool that you got some Dr Who to enjoy!

This week I spent $20 on a date, which I shouldn't have done at all, but I wanted to make a good first impression on the date and not be the normal cheapskate that I am. That blew my entire wad of personal funds for the month, though. frown

Other than that I spent nothing this week.

I do need to get more cat food tomorrow. I have some extra buck notes from CVS that I can use to pay for that. I love CVS. :-)
Posted By: Jilly

Re: What did you SPEND money on today? - 01/12/13 05:29 AM

Today I had to pick up a lot of cat food, so my pet sitters would have plenty of kitty chow while I am gone. I did buy one large bag at ALCO for $10, but that is fair enough - i set aside money for them for that each month. What is nice is that everything I by at ALCO gives me points for free rewards money. So I really prefer to shop at a place that does that. I end up spending those rewards on more cat food!

I also picked up five little cat food bags for FREE at CVS, just by using my CVS extra bucks. I had $20 in extra bucks to spend, PLUS the cat food was several dollars off from being on sale.

If anyone can get to CVS by Saturday night, there is a great sale where if you buy $30 of product (they tell you which things apply), you get a $10 gift card free. If you buy mostly food, or things you need anyway, it is an excellent system for getting free CVS gift cards that you can use any way you like.

Jilly,

Your post about the CVS circular reminds me of previous posts we used to do about upcoming savings. I will try to be more diligent about stopping by sometime and posting the week's sales so everyone can save.
Posted By: Jilly

Re: What did you SPEND money on today? - 02/04/13 12:35 AM

Maria - i do miss those posts! I'd love to see more of those here again.

Speaking of CVS, I've been getting a TON of those free $10 gift cards, and $5 extra bucks rewards in the last few weeks. The trick is timing your purchases for things you need with the sales, and stocking up, and rolling those extra bucks.

If this is greek to anyone, let me know and I will explain further!

I really love CVS. They've really 'gamified' the shopping process in a fun way.

This weekend I didn't buy anything, and the only thing I spent actual money on the entire week was, again, some wine. You can't use extra bucks on wine, but you can get 10% off wine deals at both CVS and Walgreens.

In the week prior, I did pick up a few things at Goodwill. I'm staying with family in Florida, and realized I didn't bring much more than tank tops here. So I had to pick up a few long sleeved shirts, a knitted wrap, and a hoodie.

Re: What did you SPEND money on today? - 02/06/13 06:04 PM

Another non-spending day, today, although I used CVS extra bucks to pick up some cotton balls and q-tips for free. I also used food stamps at Walmart. But I didn't spend any actual money.

Yesterday I bought wine with cash. I definitely have a spending pattern. I buy wine, and I buy cat food/cat litter. Sundries like soap and beauty supplies I generally can get for free using stacked coupons with sales.

I also usually come home from the dentist with free bags of toothbrushes, toothpaste and floss - my dentist is happy for me to take as many samples as I want.

I also pick up a lot of Kindle ebooks for free (the titles change a lot, so there is always something new to download).

Blah, blah, blah. So, that was my spending recently. How are you guys doing?

Hi Jilly! When I found that thread a while ago I thought it was a good idea. I like dollar stores. If I wouldn't I would not have a choice to go there anyway since here it's small and the cities that are closest are not much bigger so there are not a lot of stores. I was used to take the bus and the subway and shop in different stores and shopping malls, I also had a job that paid well so I also buy a lot of things while being able to also put money aside.

It really is too much for me. I am not used to this much interaction: at my home I don't see people except like once a week. I am at the point of being constantly agitated.

Then 14,55$ at Rossy (store...[my mom only wanted to buy an artificial flower at 1,39$ so she gave me 2$ and i bought it with my things] 1 nail polish and 2 boxes of little Mr Freeze). Lastly 8,63$ at Dollarama (dollar store...6 boxes of Starbursts).

Nancy, that is great that you can keep track like this!

Today I had one pear cider and three fish tacos, so this was a lower spending day than the rest of the time during my friend's visit.

I went to Cabrillo national monument and got in free with my parks pass, and almost bought a magnet in the gift shop, but then reminded myself that I really should restrict my magnet collection to just the places that I find really meaningful.

Hi Jilly! I have to since losing my job and not finding another one since then. I had no problem doing it until this month when I received my Mastercard bill, my last internet purchase was done not too long after the one before and that bill ended up being more than seven hundred dollars! Thankfully I had enough money to pay that bill (a good portion of what i had set aside is gone now thanks to that) but that sure was a wake up call for me! I was far from rich but I was able to buy more freely (example...if i liked a shirt i would buy it in every colors) and mostly without looking at the price and not listening when the cashier would tell how much it was costing. Until now I have been able to always be able to pay my credit card bills fully and on time, if I can calculate more carefully I will be able to keep on doing that.

Hey Jilly, a fish taco - or 2 or 3 - in SoCal, or even Baja Mexico, is a fare worth planning in any budget.
Glad you didn't hold back, because it reminded me of my days in San Diego & border jumping to Ensenada for fish tacos/cerveza & stopping by Puerto Nuevo on the drive back for lobster dinner

Thanks to Nivea discontinuing my face products in Canada I just spent (after several hours of searching the internet for places with the better prices and who also ships here) 420,33$! I do not have allergic reactions to beauty products but it is hard to find something that do not destroy my face (i have combo skin...if the cream is not for me then the shine and dry spots are just awful...spent years before finding 1 that was fully working then i could not buy it anymore when i moved then miraculously the first cream i pick works better then less than 3 years later they take it off the market in my country!!!!!)!

Today was a splurge day for us, we ate out at Ruby Tuesday with a $10 off coupon that we got on RecycleBank for recycling each week. I recommend using RecycleBank, you get free coupons for recycling, which we should all do anyway.

Then Bob got us a "fire pit" - i.e. a way to burn all this dead wood we have in our back yard. We've had dead wood stacking up for years now and we had no way to get rid of it. So now we have a metal pit and we can start burning our way through it safely, to get our yard cleared out again. So that is a good step towards decluttering (and I suppose making the back yard less of a fire hazard).

Re: What did you SPEND money on today? - 05/04/13 02:44 AM

I received an email tonight from the seller of the face cream saying that he could not ship to me so I went ahead and asked for a cancellation of my other order too. I won't get one more year of my products but on the bright side that's 420,33$ more in my pockets (i just hope the other seller understands and dont give me any problems...dont want a toner without the cream that goes with it).
Posted By: Lisa LowCarb

Re: What did you SPEND money on today? - 05/05/13 10:46 PM

Bob got us some stones for around the fire pit today, so that was our only purchase. That will help us burn through this wood. We had our first fire tonight!

Re: What did you SPEND money on today? - 05/06/13 12:27 AM

Nancy, that is too bad about your favorite facial products. Have you found a decent replacement yet? I know I'd be pretty lost if my Paula's Choice stuff was discontinued. I try to make mine last for as long as possible, since it's not as cheap as drugstore brands.

Lisa, your fire pit sounds wonderful! I know I love mine. Could you not use wild rocks from your area?

I've been sick all week and haven't left home, nor bought anything online. I did manage to fill up some water jugs from the outdoor tap from the guidance center in my town, but that was free.

Last weekend I did go to Flagtaff, though, which cost me $15 in gas and around the same amount in beverages and food out. So that was pretty much all my April money, and I enjoyed it.

Re: What did you SPEND money on today? - 05/06/13 01:06 AM

Hi Jilly! I am very sorry to hear that you are sick! I hope you feel better soon!

I was able to get two of my daily moisturizer (could be used as night to but was using another for night and could not get it anywhere) and will keep them for later with the tonic (never got to use it..was waiting to finish an old cleanser from my old aesthetician before starting using tonic) and unused exfollient from the discontinued line (its just 1 bottle that is small but i never use a lot of exfollient so ill be able to use that along with the 2 bottles of cream). Now with the two bottles opened I with strech them as far as they can go then I will use other products until I finish the ones who don't exist (in Canada that is) anymore, I think I know which I will try, I'll keep on searching on the internet then order (or buy in a store if its something thats sold here) next week. It's a shame about that, not only were they great products but they were also cheap.

Re: What did you SPEND money on today? - 05/08/13 05:16 PM

Jilly -

It sounds like you're doing an awesome job of living frugally! I hope you feel better soon.

We do have stone walls but I tend to take stone walls fairly seriously and would not cannibalize an authentic stone wall for a project. We don't have enough other loose rocks to make a properly sized fire pit.

This photo is as far as we currently have gotten, and it still needs another layer of rocks before it's high enough for me. I want to make sure no fire can get out. We live in a forest so it's important to me that it's as safe as possible.



The next step is to build a stone patio to go under it, so even occasional sprays of sparks can't set anything alight.

Your backyard looks beautiful Lisa. Is the wood we see in the first picture yours? How big is it? We do have lots of trees here along with mountains and forests but our yard is not near a forest or mountain and it is small. We do have flowers and trees along with raspberries and a garden (that we have not used yet). It has been many years since I've sit near a fire outside, I was a young teenager the last time.

Re: What did you SPEND money on today? - 05/08/13 10:05 PM

Lisa, what a lovely firepit! I am so happy for you.

I keep forgetting not everyone has a zillion rocks everywhere. The southwest is made of rocks. We don't buy them out here - we just try not to trip over them all. :-)

Nancy, I am so proud of you for returning here so diligently to record your expenses! It is so useful to track and observe our spending habits. Good job.

Today I paid my mortgage but I don't consider it something I 'spent' today...it's not like i had a choice about that one.

Other than that I spent nothing. I thought about taking myself out to eat because I accomplished a few good things today, but then decided I could just make myself something and save the money for my goals.

It really helps having a big goal like Europe to save for.

Hey Jilly......I hope you are feeling better.

I am out of work again so I really need to live on the cheap. I had to get four Mother's day cards and one birthday card this week so I went to the dollar store. I got two cards for $1 each, and the rest were 50 cents each. I could not go wrong with that, considering how inflated the prices of holiday cards can be in other stores!

Buying from Avon's website in Canada is now hard! First we are forced to be tied to a seller and then what you ordered is sent to that person and they are the ones who can aprove or not, if it's approved we are then contacted by that person. She'll probably freak out since I asked to have English as my main language and she only speaks French. One of the things I ordered is a face cream (i was going to go with 2 more but i ended up in their American website and i read the reviews and many people with combo skin uses it and loves it so i figured what the hell ill try it) and I want to start using it on June 5 so I hope I can get it before that plus I bought my dad's birthday gift and it's on June 6. I really don't understand why make this so difficult, I used to often order from them online and it was easy and fast!

Re: What did you SPEND money on today? - 05/12/13 07:01 AM

I have a representative for Avon but this last time she sent me an email and directed me to online (I figured to save money on catalogs because I do not see her that often or order that often). I did respond and asked her a question as well but never heard back from her. I didn't think the address was a noreply type thing. Oh well. I always enjoyed looking at their gifts and other items as well as cosmetics.

When I was in high school I sold Avon. I guess I did it about a year. I did door to door but gave up on that. Some people were awful - they would place a large order and never pay for it.

I met my rep through work. She had a good thing going there. It's harder now that she is retired.

Re: What did you SPEND money on today? - 05/12/13 03:36 PM

Hi Angie! I too was an Avon representative but only for a campaign. The people did not like us where I did this so I only made two sells and one was a friend, I ended up buying a necklace and the earrings that went with them and that took all the money (+ some more) that I had made with these two sells. I still have not been contacted by the person they gave to me, I bet she will call tomorrow when I will be gone for many hours!

I sold Avon too, a few years back, to write it up for the BellaOnline editors so they could see what it was like. It was fun, but none of my friends are interested in Avon products so it was only me buying things to test them out. I don't wear makeup so after a while I gave it up.

I didn't buy anything today - just been catching up on work!

I will reply to the email instead of calling her (she did say that 1 of the payment options was through email) because I don't know her so I do not know when she eats and if she has kids.

She told me that she waited that long to accept my order because she thought that Avon made a mistake giving me her because she lives in another province. She just sent me by email my receipt. 0,89$ for a men deodorant (my dad will pay me), 0,89$ for a men deodorant (my dad will pay me), 20$ for a face cream, 7,99$ for a Montreal Canadians glass (my dads birthday gift) and 2,99$ for a cold cream.

It's even more astounding when one realizes how cheap gas is in the US. Most places pay far, far more than we do for gas. To them gas is a precious commodity that is treasured drop by drop. So in a way we have it sort of easy.

Today I bought a 5 pound bag of ground round hamburger. As a special now and then the butcher offers it cheaper per pound if you buy it in bulk 5 pound bags. I can use it to make hamburgers, salisbury steaks, meatloaf, stuffed peppers, or brown it up to put in pasta sauce. I don't eat a lot of beef but it is nice to have it on hand for when I have the urge once in a while to indulge. I will separate the meat into 5 equal packs and freeze them. I like that I saved about $1.00 per pound.

I just paid the satellite bill by phone with a credit card, my parents were supposed to take care of that but lately I have been checking them carefully (should of woke up about that earlier than a few months ago since they have stolen my savings), today was the last day so I told my mom (my dad is off somewhere outside) that this is in my name and just now she decided to tell me that it was almost always paid late! They're probably jealous of me since I have a good name and have always paid my bills fully and on time so they wanted me to be like them without a good name. So now my mom is angry at me, I'm used to her acting like a baby so I don't care anymore. They did it so sneaky too because I had taken that bill out last week when they went out to run errands and they had put it where they put the paid bills so I thought it was done, now I have 0% trust in these two people and I know 100% that when I am out of here they will not know my phone number and address.

First I spent 44,58$ at Wal*Mart (15,86$ for an Elmo who gives kisses and hugs [i was careful to make sure it was the real Elmo...dont want anything to do with the new voice] 4,97$ twice for 30 facial cleansers from Pond's 4,97$ for a face cream from Pond's 4,00$ twice for a back sponge cleaner), 14,85$ at Dollorama (1,25$ 3 times of 6 little boxes of incense, 1$ for a little jelly teddy that you squeeze [it also has a little thing inside] 0,69$ for an Aero bar, 1$ for silk paper, 1$ for a big page of Sesame Street stickers, 2$ for a box and 1$ 4 times for Chef Boyardee microwavable meals [took 4 different ones...not the best food but when youre hungry a little its fast]), 61,66$ at Jean Coutu (2,99$ twice for 2 different types of sanitary napkins, 6,99$ for a box of chocolates, 15,49$ for gummy calciums, 5,19$ for toothpaste, 7,99$ for a toothbrush and 11,99$ for a 240ml Glycerodermine), 6,98$ at Les Aliments M&M (2 poutines...i told the people there that if its good ill try other things [that made them laugh] its a frozen food store...they also told me that now we can go 1 place in Amqui and we can order there where they deliver the orders every 2 weeks so thats cool) and 17,20$ at KFC (3 poutines and 1 family size gravy).

Nancy,

Glad you had an enjoyable shopping day. I love to read your spending experiences because it gives me a glimpse into how someone in another country lives.

By the way, what is a jelly teddy?

And give your new Elmo a hug from me.

Hi Sandra. By jelly teddy I meant a little bear made of jelly (or something else...its something you squeeze...theres a little ball too inside...its cute and relaxing too). It will be my pleasure to give Elmo a hug for you!

Nancy -

There definitely is a line crossed when someone puts bills into your name without your permission. Never mind when someone outright takes money out of your bank account.

I would shut down all accounts that they have access to. As an adult, no other person should have legal access to your accounts, not even family members. That is, I have a mother who is alive. Even though she is my mother, she has no legal access to my bank account. If she tried to do something to my bank account, the bank would not let her.

So I would shut down accounts that they were given access to, and create new ones which are explicitly in your name only.

If it was me, I would shut down any accounts like the satellite account that had my name on it. If they want it, they can create their own account in their name. You can even tell the satellite company that you want a note on the account that they are not to make one in your name because it would be fraud.

On the other hand, if it really is you using this account, then I would put it fully in your name and retain full control over it. Set it up with auto-pay so you are in control of it.

Does Canada offer free yearly credit reports. We have that in the US. So once a year I run my credit report and see everything on it in my name. I highly recommend you do that.
Posted By: Nancy Roussy

Re: What did you SPEND money on today? - 05/28/13 05:32 PM

Hi Lisa. My parents have no access to my accounts. The satellite bill has always been in my name but they promised to always pay it before we moved. The bill comes in the mail so they take it to the bank and pay it there. From now on I will always check the mail and take that bill so like that I know it would always be paid and in time. In my parents's minds paying late is no big deal so this is why my mom was shocked when I told her that my credit was good and that I wanted to keep it that way. I don't know how it works in Canada with our credit names. My mom said that it was always paid in full just late, I really have a hard time believing that this did not affect my good name. My mom told me that it would take more for them to cut us off but I only care about my name, my parents don't care about them so they figure I'm like them. It took many years and many awful things to help me not trust them with anything, I'm really ashamed that it took me so much time and hits to make me realised this! If NHL would also have their playoff games on their website I would pay to watch my games online and have all the English channels off and put that bill in my dad's name but can't do that, being with Shaw would cost me less money but I can't go with them before I know for sure that I'm still stuck here for years, don't want to pay to break a contract (first appartment i find that has electricity included for 400$ or less im outta here).

Re: What did you SPEND money on today? - 05/28/13 05:37 PM

Also, tomorrow my dad will go to the bank when I will be at my aesthetician, if they would not be heartless he would take out the money that bill cost and give it to me (after all tomorrow would of been the day he would of paid it) but I won't hold my breath for that to happen! I think he did that on purpose to say to my mom just after we left for Matane that tomorrow he'll go to the bank, just another cheap shot and then my mom made that cheap shot when I was eating my first KFC poutine, so yeah I'd be surprised if they give me my money back tommorow! The more cheap shot that will come the more it will help me not having remorse to not give them my contact information when I will move out.

Re: What did you SPEND money on today? - 05/28/13 05:51 PM

Nancy -

The first step is always to get as many facts as you can.

This looks like the Canadian version of a credit report -

EquiFax Canada

And it appears like in the US you can get one for free, to monitor your credit.

So I would request your free credit report. See what it says. Maybe satellite bills never show up on there, in which case this isn't something to worry about for now. That being said, I would still get it out of your name, especially if you're planning on moving. Put that on your list of things to do.

Different people have different views on bill paying. That's normal and natural. Some carry credit card balances. Some would never do that in a million years. So it's OK that you and your parents differ on how to manage this. The key is that things in your name are managed the way you want. If it was in their name they could manage it any way THEY wanted. So if they want to pay late, then it should be in their name. No emotion, no confusion, just simple.

Money is the #1 cause of arguments in relationships. It becomes emotional. We all have different views on what is "right". So the best thing is to organize the finances so it's perfectly clear. If they're paying a bill, their name should be on that bill.

Today I spent money in three places. 64,38$ for waxing, 5,39$ at Dollorama (1 Aero, 1 necklace [just for the chain that i will use for a wishbone for hanging it] and a pack of 3 red cords for necklaces [they too will be used to hang things]) and 8,30$ at Pharmaprix (hand soap, two sponges, my pills and another prescription).

And of course my parents did not gave me the money for the bill they wanted to pay today! The worst is actually the hand soap which they absolutely wanted to pay me back, it was done with extreme urgency, and, my mom gave me a 5$ and asked me with great fear if I had a 2$!

It sounds like they have a different mentality about paying bills. It's probably best to either make them pay their own bills, or to accept responsibility for the bills you have to pay. Anything else will just bring stress.

I bought a few cards at the dollar store for 2 for $1.00. I also bought some liquid handsoap for $1.00. I bought it countless times before because I love the scent of pears, but now the size of the bottle is slightly smaller. With the smaller size is a new formula evidently, because now there is no pleasant fresh pear scent to it at all, just a soapy smell. I don't like it and I am disappointed, and I can't wait until I use it up, because I won't throw it out. I will be opening the bottles at the store from now on to take a sniff before I buy.

There was lots of stores I love and haven't been able to go since moving but since I have basically no money I was not able to buy a lot, I stopped myself from going into two because I knew it would be too hard for me not being able to buy anything from them. At Jean Coutu I spent 15,15$ (1 toothbrush 1 toothpaste) and at Winners I spent 5,74$ (a toy for a neighbor's Golden Retriever..his birthday is coming he will be 5). I did pick seven things at Les Aliments M&M (6 poutines and 1 box of small cheese pizzas) but my dad wanted to pay for it so I let him.

If I had to buy the same frame in an art shop just the frame would probably cost 30.00 and with a matt easily 50.00. Today was Tuesday and Senior disc day so knock 25% off the price. Then headed over to Aldi's and was going to buy some blueberries fpr 99 cents/pt. Picked up two and someone took them out of my cart. %$#@!!!! Later at my grocery store on the way home had to pick up milk and bread but we know when you walk out of the store it is never just for what you came in for. Add 14.00 to that.

So I took him out to dinner (normally he does all the cooking). He did just eat $3 appetizers for his dinner so he tried to keep it inexpensive.

I also went to the doctor's today, and she says my keratosis - small, scaly skin growths - are just something I have to live with. I love experimenting on myself so I'm curious if that's really true. Surely they can be removed. So I ordered a little tube of wart remover. I've been reading online that it might work, so I'll be photographing and documenting the process smile.

I'm leaving on the kitchen table the 200$ my parents need to take their little vacation. I am a little afraid that they'll spend that money then say that they don't have the money to go but if they do that then me not having a lot of money won't manner anymore and I'll leave and they won't never hear from me again. This is a good test to see if they have any heart and conscience left.

The satellite bill? Are u supporting your parents?
Posted By: Nancy Roussy

Re: What did you SPEND money on today? - 08/10/13 12:31 PM

Elleise,

I'm not supporting my parents (well they did steal 16,000$ from me...it was a "loan"...i was too stupid to realise that they would never be able to pay me back...in 2 years they will renew the mortgage and i was told that they would borrow 16,000$ to pay me back...yeah right) the satellite I got in 2000 and when we moved in 2009 they were supposed to pay it for me but I learned that they did pay it but late so I started paying it again (in their mind paying late is normal....i hope they did not screw with my credit).

The 200$ for their vacation pays their gas, the rest they are okay with. I figured that it would cost me less to pay their gas then to rent a place and to buy what I would need while on vacation.

I technically have enough to move out but I would need an appartment 400$ or less by month with electricity included, these are rare. I was able to put some money away (i have no idea how...now that i pay the satellite again it will be harder) and this could help me paying internet for a few months while on my own, I would have to find a job quick though!

My mom took the 200$ and she left me a note saying that she did not tell my dad and that if something happens and they don't go she will give my 200$ back. They better go because I am about to go crazy always with them around. They know that I am going crazy and they don't care. Sometimes it's like they do what drives me crazy on purpose.

I think that now the difference between Canadian and American dollars is very tiny.

Lately I have been buying a lot of veggies and some fruit at a local farmstand. Not only has it been cheaper to shop this way than going to the grocery store, but it is much fresher and tastier, not to mention healthy for me to eat. I am enjoying the fresh produce and I am not tempted to buy much else like I would be if I was shopping in the grocery store.

I just bought my fourth tree on Tree Nation (45$ in euro which is 64,10$ in Canadian dollars) but they went down right after I paid so hopefully I will get my tree (know many people who lost trees with them but were charged...they always get their tree or money back but its always a lot of work)!

Planned on going clothes/underwear/sock shopping today. However, I stayed up until 3 a.m. this morning, in between movies, so I said "girls clothes shopping is tomorrow!". I went to the store for groceries and spent $84.00. Half of it was Crayola markers, pencils, erasers, rulers, protractors, journal books...the list goes on. My hand basket was full before I purchased dinner.

So clothes shopping tomorrow for 2 x 10 yr olds. I need another job! lol

A website where we can plant trees. My Tree Nation profile is in my Bella Online profile if you or anyone else want to check it out. When a waterable tree has 200 drops (we can give one drop per tree each day...theres a limit when we join but with actions we can get more..i only have 23 but im planning on posting recipes for more drops) another tree is planted (these trees are not waterable).

I didn't buy anything today, but tomorrow I will be renewing my AAA membership. Actually, the Plus membership that gives you more towing miles and covers RVs.

Anyone here use AAA or a roadside service? I love using AAA and getting free maps and triptiks and tour books.

BUT! today I spent nothing. smile

I made tortillas by hand and crushed all of the recyclables. so I'm thinking of taking those in w/my change jar...

But I did do laundry puting away stuff from Spring. So if that counts, I probably spent $1.50. confused

I love AAA! I get the extra package myself so that I have enough towing miles if there is a problem. The standard amount simply doesn't help much here in Alaska, but the gold package is invaluable. Probably one of the best things for peace of mind I can think of. It's also an excellent gift for a single parent.

I didn't spend money today. It's kind of turned into a game for me. I want to - but I don't or won't.

But since people are talking about AAA. What is it exactly? Like extra insurance?

I don't drive, but my husband does. So, just wondering the benefits?

Re: What did you SPEND money on today? - 10/04/13 12:10 AM

Hi Karen!

Triple A (AAA) is an auto insurance company that gives you a package for a monthly or yearly premium...It's not that expensive as I remember. We had it in California. If you break down, have a flat tire, your car burns out, they are there for you. They will be there efficiently and friendly and give you a ride if necessary.

Check out their website. AAA.com and find your location. I looked and you have to scroll to the bottom of the page and there is a link right there! Then you can type in your zip code. Start off by going to the Membership tab and it gives you an insight of what they offer and go from there.

It was great for us. We locked our keys in the car so many times, or lost them. They would be there with a crow bar! LOL>>NOT KIDDING! Check it out! It may be worthwhile for you if you drive a lot.
Posted By: Angie

Re: What did you SPEND money on today? - 10/04/13 04:06 PM

My son locked his keys in the car in our driveway. Both of us have coverage so AAA came to our D/W and were able to open the door for him. Whoever has coverage in the that has need has coverage.

Yesterday I spent money on a pedicure. I don't normally do that, but hubby wanted us to do it together as a couples thing, a gift to each other. It was nice. He got his toes painted in the Bama football colors. I got Caribbean blue.

That was after we signed up for this year's AAA, which was around a hundred dollars, since we have the upgraded package with RV option.

We also went to Goodwill to get a belt for dan, and picked up a few Rubbermaid tubs to outdoorsy type things store things along the side of the house. I needed tubs, so it was great to find some used!

So, kind of an expensive day for me.

I didn't buy anything today, though,

Lately I have been stocking up on veggies I get fresh and more affordable where I work at the farmstand. I have made zucchini breads to freeze, and I also froze other veggies and blueberries too. I will enjoy these things in the winter when prices at the grocery store are much higher for produce because all of it will be off season.

Welcome, PeggyAnne. It is so important to track where our spending goes, and you made a great contribution to your own awareness with your post.

Good on you for asking for the free glucose meter. Usually we can get all kinds of things we need, simply by having the courage to ask for them.

Re: What did you SPEND money on today? - 10/09/13 03:15 PM

Yesterday I bought a few beers out with hubby, at the Wavehouse on Mission beach. We had perfect chairs against the ocean, to watch the sunset. We also split nachos.

So that was all a splurge. We need to make sure splurges like that are really infrequent. How often do most people eat out or hit the pubs?

Yesterday I did get a free notary signature at AAA, so that saved me at least $7. I will need a few more this week.

Today I am not buying anything, except that I am considering picking up a set of ebooks on how to sell your stuff online. It's $47 for the kit, and that's a lot of money. I am thinking i will make it all back and more by selling stuff, and can also share the findings with everyone here, and review it.

What do you guys think I should do?

Re: What did you SPEND money on today? - 10/09/13 04:07 PM

Hey Jilly,

Nice to see you posting again smile

I'll always remember you reaching out to me in friendship when I was new to Bella and kinda down and out in Beverly Hills smile

Now I get to return the favor smile

Connie, my better half, has been experiment with on-line garage and yard sales for over 4 years now and she had a bumpy road for a long time.

There was a lot of chaos and drama against the admin for enforcing decency rules of respect in the groups.

But, as she has just told me, all and all it is a good place to get rid of unwanted merchandise and things you simply don't want or need anymore.

Connie went through a lot of bummed out times when it was slow and did not take off.

Well, it did take off and over time she grew it to over 5000 members and had to have help with other admin.

She was structuring it on her own and was trying to keep people in the right categories and manage drama.

Well, as luck would have it, she was very fortunate to find out that there is a group of folks on facebook who have solved the majority of problems with an app inside facebook called

https:
//www.varagesale.com

So, save your $47 and find a VarageSale group in your area !!

They have over 300,000 groups that span the globe.

It is all done through facebook.

1) Have to have a facebook account.
2) The app is inside facebook called VS
3) Find a group in your area and ask to join !

I really, really hope this helps you out as it is very organized and orderly with over thousands of people buying and sell per group 24 / 7 !! smile !!!

Though this VarageSale, Connie and I have gotten everything from pots and pans brand new in the box to patio furniture Brand New $75 for the set -- brand new computer for dirt cheap, clothes, books, beds, antiques, jewelry, real gold for pennies on the dollar !!!

She is sitting in a slightly used leather chair with a matching ottoman for $15 !!!

We even got yard work done simply by asking who wanted to do it !!

Very inexpensive.

Times are hard and people are really taking advantage of this buying and selling person to person without a middleman !!

Here in Florida you have to have a permit for a physical yard sale limited to 2 per year.

But that does not apply to on-line yard sales.

It was made by a lady in Montreal Canada who's husband wrote the app to keep things orderly.

So, check it out Jilly smile

They have a map so you can find a group locally to you in AZ or CA.

Virtual Garage Sale !!

Best on The Planet !!!

There are individual yard sales on facebook, but since Connie started one on her own and was the admin, it became to unruly to manage, so now VarageSale is more organized and orderly so it pretty much runs itself without her pulling her hair out.

Hope this helps smile

Burt & Connie smile smile

Burt, what a great concept! I looked, but didn't find a group for any of my local areas. So I looked up Facebook Yard Sale on google, and found some other similar sites.

Looking through things now. There are a lot of 'scam' weight loss systems posted, but other people are mentioning their things for sale.

I'll keep looking into this. Thank you for your helpful post!

Re: What did you SPEND money on today? - 10/10/13 06:07 PM

Oh we have an online yard sale in my area, and I have used it.
Put a utility wagon up for sale and it was gone in less than 2 minutes....the seller and buyer always meet up at a public place, and never alone....complete the deal and away we go.

Works well, it is on facebook.

Oh today I spent way too much money, but it was all a necessity.
Food and gas.....did splurge on a buger and coke.

Hi Burt and Connie, hugs to you both.

For $20 I'd say it is worth it. You never know when you might need it - and there are some documents that are really worth protecting (birth certificates, SS cards, marriage license, etc).

I spent "0" money today and I'm quite proud of this one...

But had a bottle of club soda from the store. I'm like I'll bet I can make the same thing. I REALLY have sensitive taste-buds.

GOT IT! (virtual clappy-hands).

My husband had purchased a Soda-stream. I messed around w/some ingredients. He couldn't tell the difference.

Someone also sought me out. Likes some of my ideas. Wants to have dinner, discuss business? I don't do public, so it has to be a small place, but I've been broke for so long, it felt really nice smile

Yesterday we bought a camping kitchen set up on craigslist that was going for $50. Since this was a great price, and I'd wanted one for years, I didn't haggle. It was brand new in the bag and never set up. There cost $165 on Amazon and around $200 in retail stores. I was pretty happy with that, and I,m excited to get a lot of use out of it.

Today i am going to eat out with my family and I am worried about the spending for that. Eating out is never a good deal, compared to eating at home.

So while the camping table is an expense i feel good about, I am anxious about dinner with the family in Little Italy tonite.

I'm going to see if we can persuade the family to do taco tuesday in Ocean Beach tonite, with the 2 for 1 special. They have the best fish tacos in San Diego, and my mouth waters just thinking about it. Plus, the food will be healthier than the pasta and alfredo sauce we will probably end up with otherwise.

What do you guys think I should do? It's more or less a goodbye meal with my family, and I have a feeling Dan will offer to pay for everyone.

In other news, the activity for the day will be totally free. I have a parks pass, and we are all going to Cabrillo National Monument. so that is helpful. I'm really glad the parks are open again.
Posted By: Jilly

Re: What did you SPEND money on today? - 10/23/13 05:12 AM

So today worked out okay. Dan and I ate our fish tacos (taco tuesday pricing) and each had a happy hour pint of beer. So that really was pretty inexpensive, and this was for a special family occasion.

The park was free with my parks pass, and we really enjoyed doing all the activities they had and spending time with my family. I bought a magnet for $3, which was a totally unnecessary expense, but since we didn't drive our car, we saved more than that on gas. I collect magnets, but am really selective about the ones I get, and this was a nice-looking one.

Coming home, my mother and I walked around her pool for an hour and talked (free fitness and social time).

Then I did some reading and posting online, and will trade backrubs with Dan tonite (all free).

Tomorrow there are a ton of things to do, and i expect we will spend some money at CVS, pay an electric bill, and use some gas to get to AAA for a free Triptik and a notary signature. But we also plan to walk along the bay, which is fun and free.

How are you guys feeling about your expenses these days?

This is weird...why is/are things posting twice?

But anyway, I didn't spend money to day.

In fact, I found a nickel and received 5 for doing a survey. It was sort of an uncanny and unexpected surprise, so I just put it in a "rainy-day" jar or change jar and cash the little things in, here and there.

It irritates my husband a little - I think it's frustrating, wanting a certain way of life all at once, but be careful what you wish for.

In small increments those little things really add up and you don't have to give those types of things away or sell your Soul to the "Devil..." so to speak smile

Re: What did you SPEND money on today? - 10/23/13 11:12 PM

Karen, i love finding and saving change. Even finding a penny makes my day. I often have dreams where I find change in the road, and they are good dreams. :-)

In fact, what i bought today from a thrift store was a used change sorter. it has test tube-like things that you load the change into, and then it tells you how many dollars it has become. I love it. It was $3.23 with tax.

It seems silly to spend money on something to save money, but I hope ultimately it will encourage dan to save his change, so that he will see that change becomes actual cash with very little effort.

I also picked up two pretty storage boxes for Dan, since he feels like his misc items are everywhere. At the thrift store, they came to $6 for both, and he was really pleased to get the gift. He's already happily filling his boxes up. :-)

So that is $8.23, with no gas used (went in my mother's car with her).

I didn't go to AAA and CVS today, since we are waiting around for someone from craigslist to come and buy our mini-fridge.

I do need to call the electric company in AZ, since there is a disconnect notice due if I don't pay that by tomorrow. So it is a good thing the mini-fridge sold.

Re: What did you SPEND money on today? - 12/04/13 08:37 PM

I found a dime today, and a quarter on the sidewalk yesterday.

Spent? I ordered a magnifying loupe on amazon today, and a gram measurement scale - both came to around $6 with the shipping.

Yesterday I went out with my niece to a bar and spent $23 - a big expense for me. But also a rare occasion, so i won't beat myself up about it.

The day before I spent 16 on a used desk and chair to use while i am here in orlando, and spent $2 on a bag of books.

While i was traveling out here, though, I spent nothing. My gas was paid for, and I used food stamps for food during my cross country drive. We also slept in the car, so we didn't have to get a hotel room. So that was a week without expenses. smile

Aside from all the "pop-ups," I guess I found something significant or profound in having it happen. I found I spent something without having it to do w/finances.

But today, I've spend nothing, "dollar-wise." In fact, it's really weird, but I keep getting gifts here and there that pretty much make everything broken around the house work, lol.

Okay, yesterday I took my MIL to the Restore and we got a lot of books with the $2 a bag sale. We also got the $3 a bag deal with misc christmas stuff. What was really nice was that she paid for everything. So besides driving the two miles to the Restore, I didn't spend anything yesterday.

I also didn't spend money on anything today.

Hi Angie. This is a hard time of year to save money. smile

I purchased a little gram scale for my niece today, from amazon. $6.35: it was something she said she wanted for xmas, plus I got free shipping.

I will be wrapping people's gifts with some fabric this week - we already have the fabric, it will look cute, and such gift wrap will cost me nothing and ALSO be reusable. I'm going to add this part of the post to the thread about frugal gifts, actually.

Re: What did you SPEND money on today? - 12/08/13 04:26 PM

Hi Jilly. I have a supply of giftwrap left from last year so I will not purchase anything new. I picked up cards at the Dollar Store so made out like a bandit there. I save my Christmas cards from the previous year and make gift tags - I cut the pictures from the cards into gift cards and tape them to the gift boxes.

I sometimes use the pictures to make other special cards too.

I didn't spend any money today, but I always think about electricity for whatever reason.

I hate (let me rephrase) HATE-HATE-HATE, the cold!!! I bundle up like a polar bear in the winter, but am today under a heating blanket on pretty much high, lol.

But, purchases? Nothing. In fact rummaging through the deep-freezer downstairs, I had a lot of herbs I grew and some bags of by one get one shrimp. So, this evening I may make some Shrimp-Scampi w/Angel-Hair pasta.

Great ideas on the Christmas gifts!!! I too utilize bows and ribbons - even un-staple the middles, using scissors to curl them and name tags out of scraps of paper.
Posted By: Angie

Re: What did you SPEND money on today? - 12/08/13 06:20 PM

Elleise,

there was an article in one our local publications about how much electricity we use even when we're not doing anything - the author suggested going around the house and checking for the little glowing lights to see what is running - microwave with the clock, TV, cable box, DVD player, PC, printer, chargers, adapters, etc. I would hate to turn everything off and have to remember to plug it back in before each use. One suggestion was the multiple plug outlet which can be turned on and off with one switch. Chargers need to turn off automatically when the item is fully charged.

Re: What did you SPEND money on today? - 12/08/13 09:13 PM

I'm glad you made it passed the weather Diane! WE just got the ice and snow today and luckily, my husband didn't have to go out in it!

I think it's things like this, that come across, when there's posts about having extra things on hand, even powdered milk or canned veggies when they're on sale. I keep my eyes out for all that stuff. Lol, ironically I do very well w/pictures wink

But especially when they're like .38 a can, the lowest I've seen is .32, but it's then I purchase a case of beans or corn and potatoes? Those along w/broccoli, again when they're on sale, I simply chop them up for later use. Glad you're safe smile

Re: What did you SPEND money on today? - 12/08/13 10:31 PM

Thanks Elleise. My son had spent the night at a friend's house then went to the mall, so I did have to pick him up around 2, fortunately there was enough traffic so the main roads were still passable. I did use it as a teaching moment about driving and running around in bad weather.

His school is closed tomorrow, but I'm thinking we will still have to work since they very seldom close the local government.

Stocking up sounds like an excellent idea. I remember the major storm a few years ago where everything was closed for days. We've had such mild winters especially the last two years, it's easy for us to get complacent down here. Many of us are in for a rude awakening with really bad weather. You've got a great plan we need to follow!

Re: What did you SPEND money on today? - 12/08/13 10:47 PM

Diane, I know what you mean about being complacent. We have been very fortunate the past couple of years but here in Central Virginia we tend to get ice storms and then power outages. It's always a problem salvaging refrigerated and frozen items. I think we are in for it this year although folklore says otherwise. Weather patterns are so strange all around the world.

Everyone needs to take care during the winter.

Angie.....I like your idea of making gift tags from old Christmas cards.

My most frugal purchase lately was buying boxes of 14 or 16 Christmas cards for only $1 each at the dollar store. With having to spend money on postage for these cards the savings was well worth the trip to that store.
Posted By: Angie

Re: What did you SPEND money on today? - 12/28/13 04:52 PM


Debbie, the cards at the Dollar Store were beautiful too with a true Christmas message - not holiday message - what a buy...

My gift tags have unusual shapes but they work well and are pretty large. I either tape the card to the box or hole punch and use a piece of ribbon to attach it to the bow. I enjoy making them.

Today was a zero spending day. YAY! I have been making a bunch of purchases lately, due to being in a new home, but today was just spent cleaning and organizing.

Most of my shopping has been at Goodwill, the Dollar Store, Walmart and Craigslist. I don't feel great about shopping at walmart, but have been at least thoughtful and frugal about it.

Today we went to some furniture resale shops and got a bistro set ($120) to eat on in the kitchen, and a movable screen ($39) to divide the kitchen from the living room. Also a desk chair for me for five dollars. Oh, and I grabbed a pair of house slippers from goodwill for $1.50. Very comfy.

Two days ago I got a livingroom chair for me from Goodwill for ten dollars.

Still need a couple more items of used furniture, and then we will be set.

If you know what you're looking for, you can find appliances from dehydrators, food savers and mini-food processors for even $3.00 smile

Posted By: Jilly

Re: What did you SPEND money on today? - 03/25/14 03:48 PM

Too true, Karen! There's almost no excuse to buy new appliances. I prefer to keep usable things in the use cycle, instead of in the waste stream. We can all help do better in this.

Nancy, good deals at your pharmacy!

Yesterday we picked up a few things at the dollar store for the kitchen and laundry room, and I found some useful things for my office at goodwill.

The day before I found an entire bed for $50 on Craigslist. Metal frame, box spring, two mattresses and full bedding. I have a very nice nest now.

It all smelled a little like smoke, but i aired it all out, washed the bedding, and sprayed the heck out of my dollar store Fabrese on it all.

There were nicer bed sets for $200-$225, but i couldn't see spending that. i already had a nice memory foam pad to top it all off with anyway. ;

Re: What did you SPEND money on today? - 03/29/14 07:14 PM

So far, nothing -

But...tonight's going to be a different story wink

Every now and then, my husband will take me out. He understands - I don't do "public" unless (and this is weird) a public speaking engagement, where there's a separation of some sort. Proximity seems to be a problem for me. Maybe too much information coming through confused

However, IF we go out, it's always after we've saved for like forever and my husband is kind enough to get my butt in the car w/the coaxing of "No one will be IN the restaurant...they'll be closed in 1.5 hrs."

Since he's worked IN the food business, he's mindful of just how irritating it can be for someone to come in 15 min. beforehand.

They all pretty much want to get back to what they call home as much as we do wink

I don't think I will spend money today, but I did yesterday.

I bought a tank of gas ($3.43 gallon).

Went to goodwill and got a pillowcase, pretty throw pillow and a tote bag.

I also went to the Dollar Tree and got some office supplies, a little gift for dan, a pair of cute socks, two eye colors, a perfume, and some bath mats for the floor in the RV. The office supplies made me the happiest: I find organizing supplies soothing.

It was a big spending day for me, but I was doing a little 'shop therapy', since I got some rather bad news that will be a big hassle to deal with. Which I do not recommend as a rule, the shop therapy. But it was better than the anxiety attack that preceded the shopping...

I add this info here to let people know that YES. These things happen, even in our best attempts at living frugal lives.

Talking things out is always helpful - clears the table and helps simplify the problem. You know you're not alone.

I went to the mall - I bought a few tops and slacks. They were more for next fall and winter than now. I used a seat belt cinch that had velcro on it and it put holes in a lot of my tops - in the tummy area. Some of these items were on the clearance rack.

I tried buying it yesterday but it did not go through, at first I got a message about my credit card being denied but the page changed to a blank page with "error!!!" on it so it looked more like a technical issue. I almost went back and tried with my second card but in case in was accepted anyway I decided to wait. Still no email saying that it was done so I will try later, if not tonight then another day (unless i decide that i should not spend that money on that....its really something i want though...i would also look good with it while out..haha).

I didn't spend anything today. Really, I don't think I spend anything on most days. To be fair, Bob buys our groceries, shampoo, and such. So those things just "appear" smile. But we don't tend to get anything special most of the time. He likes to be frugal.

We did go kayaking but all our kayaking gear is years old at this point.

Today I spent $2 on a special to get a subscription to Real Simple magazine. I love that one, and actually read it. I couldn't resist it for two bucks.

Lisa, that is so nice that Bob does all the shopping, and I'm glad he's frugal about it. Dan isn't really frugal. He doesn't buy much, but when he does, he doesn't mind spending money on the best of something.

For example, yesterday, we went to REI's big anniversary sale, and dan decided he needed new sunglasses that were over a hundred dollars. I would feel weird spending that much on non-prescription glasses.

Re: What did you SPEND money on today? - 05/23/14 10:30 PM

James is over so I spent $25 on ordering in Domino's pizza which will feed us all for today and then half of tomorrow. Bob was going to be frugal and go get it, to save us the $5 or whatever delivery charge, but that would have taken another 2 hours so I paid the delivery charge to get us fed. I do sometimes err on the side of feeding James. It bugs me to have him hungry.

I do have tinting prescription glasses - i.e. my daily glasses tint. That's what I wear for all seeing. So on one hand I paid "extra" so they tint. But I do think it's important to wear sunglasses when out in the sun, and as I have to wear prescription glasses, that's what I needed to tint.

I think it was money well spent to have my glasses able to block sunlight. Eyes are vital. UV radiation can cause cataracts (or exacerbate ones that are already developing).

If I didn't wear any glasses at all normally, I'd definitely wear sunglasses when outside. But that being said, I don't think I would pay $100 for them. I'd get something cheap but durable and functional.

Re: What did you SPEND money on today? - 05/24/14 12:00 AM

I have prescription sunglasses too, which is why i worded things the way I did. I don't mind paying a lot for those, since they ARE expensive. And they ARE my eyes.

But if they weren't prescription, I wouldn't spend more than $20 on a pair. I think what he spent - $103, plus tax - is honestly outrageous.

I just paid my satellite bill by credit card on the phone (had to because i received it yesterday and monday is the last day...not too sure that i can go to the bank then so did not take any chance). It was 199,29$ but I had 5,75$ (should be 5$) credited and it was taken out before I gave my credit card number. For some reason on May 20 they added four channels (Hollywood Suite...when it arrived on Bell i checked it out the free month and every channels were censored and i hate censorship so i did not add them...finally there was a free preview and now 3 [still havent seen a movie i know on the other with the f word in it...it should be like the others but before i see a new movie i want to be 100% sure] do not censor so i want them) and I was charged for them even with the free preview until May 31. He has never seen anything like that (that has happened a lot since i moved here) because the client has to call and ask for the channels for it to be added to your television. I asked if they had like psychics or witches that could enter the heads of their clients and that's not what happened, LOL. Now only one channel (before it never interested me but now that they changed the name like 25% of their shows interest me...ill wait and then ask what $ it is and if its less than 5$ ill get it) and the porn channels, the channels of the languages I don't speak and the sports I don't watch I do not have.

I also got some clear shoeboxes, and a few sets of pretty sticky notes from the Dollar Tree. Doing some organizing this weekend. :-)

Forgot to mention that it was in Rimouski, there's not a lot of those stores especially here. Rimouski and Matane are the closest and both cities are more than two hours away so I don't get to buy their products often.

Re: What did you SPEND money on today? - 05/28/14 09:05 PM

Close to two hours away not more. Sorry, I'm still suffering from insomnia (its less worst though...i had a good night 2 nights ago and for about 2 weeks now i can at least sleep 1 hour without waking up).
Posted By: Angie

Re: What did you SPEND money on today? - 05/28/14 09:25 PM

Nancy, I am sorry to hear about your insomnia. Have you ever tried chamomile tea in the evening before bedtime?

My husband and I went to Costco today and then I had to go to the grocery store to finish my shopping.
Posted By: Nancy Roussy

Re: What did you SPEND money on today? - 05/28/14 10:00 PM

Angie,

I don't like tea so I never tried that.

It normally goes away (rarely i have insomnia...probably happened less than 5 times in my 37 years) but it has been going on for months. The worst was that I could only get a few seconds of minutes of sleep at a time with hours of trying to fall asleep in between. When I finally had a complete hour I woke up refreshed, that feeling was awesome.

I don't understand how I am still standing, usually I am a zombie with just one bad night of sleep. I space out a lot and before I was able to get one full hour of sleep I was starting to be able to talk normally but now it's better.

It's still bad but not horrible.

Nancy, I hate it when I toss and turn and cannot get to sleep. I hope your sleep returns, as you say this isn't a chronic thing for you.

Hot milk with honey might help, if you don't like tea?

Today Dan and I went out for a lunch special at our local pub. No other expenses.

Re: What did you SPEND money on today? - 05/30/14 01:06 PM

Jilly,

I had a good night last night but I should not have been in bed that long (was going to add 10 hours to the time it was but did not...i did wake up after 6:00 and figured id soon get up but fell asleep soon after for another 4 hours or so) because my player is still playing in Paris, as long as it's not the Quarter Finals I will have to get up between 2:00 and 5:00.

I hate milk more than tea. When I eat cereals as a breakfast I have to add sugar with every spoon and not have lots of milk because that makes me sick otherwise (im sure i would throw up from it).

I should just learn to get up when I see that I won't fall asleep. Being up is better than staying in bed for hours awake.

Re: What did you SPEND money on today? - 05/30/14 07:25 PM

I agree that it's better you should get up and do something else, rather than lie there frustrated. Let me know how it goes.

No expenses today.

Yesterday I went to the Dollar Tree and spent $70. That's a lot for me. Mostly office supplies, and things to organize/clean the house. For instance, I bought 20 of those clear shoe boxes. That makes things add up quickly.

I also met with an old college buddy downtown, and we had some beers.

So, an expensive day for me.

I bought a tape core on Amazon. My neighbor threw away on of those nice heavy tape dispensers, and I couldn't find the core, since it probably fell out and was buried in the damp garbage (I try not to actually go through yucky wet stuff). Amazon has those cores for around two dollars with free shipping, so i ordered one. I've always wanted one of those big dispensers, so this is nice.

They also tossed a nice heavy-duty stapler and a lot of desk organizers. I don't get people. There's a thrift store just down the street.

After visiting family for an overnight stay and a whole day in New Jersey, my husband and I spent nothing - they wouldn't take anything.

However, our girls are staying the week in NJ and they dropped us off at home. My husband invited me to dinner (just the 2 of us) in Soho, NY to a restaurant that one of his clients owns. After a few blocks of walking, we found the place. We drew money out of an ATM because it was a cash only place....it was heaving with people!!

Suddenly, my husbands friend/owner came up from the cellar helping with the garbage and saw him. There was a 1 hour wait for seating. He got us seated at the bar where we ate succulent bbq shrimp and spicy garlic butter clams.

The check came back to us with $0.00. It was free. We tipped the bartender $15.00. The bill was $31.00. He was a happy camper and so were we! smile Sometimes, it's good to have friends!

We shall return. The restaurant was The Crab Boil in Soho, Manhattan if you're down that way. Awesome food and be prepared to wait a bit, They close at 11 p.m.

I will have to spend a lot of money in the future since I lost everything except my four musketeers and a few other things (pajamas mostly...my dad saved 1 things that had winter clothes in it and i will give it to my mom....the pajamas i will also give to her...i will start completely over).

The day of the fire I went to a drugstore and got my pills along with a few things. As far as my beauty routine goes except for the Lypsyl (that i use less often) everything I use are cheap products and I also stopped doing a few things like taking care of my eye area.

Last weekend I bought a tuque, coat and boots for walking when it will be cold. A few days ago I bought the things I will need for my nails (bought something for weak nails since they are like that now...1 broke and the skin is exposed a little and im waiting for that 1 to be growned enough so that i can all cut them to an equal size).

When I will get my deodorant (Dermadoctor) will arrive in my new house I will start buying my new wardrobe. The clothes I got with Red Cross I will either give away or use them to clean the house. I will also give away my wallet that I was able to save, I really want to start over, all will be left from my life before the fire will be the four musketeers.

Before October 8 I have to find a television so that I can have a satelitte dish installed on that day. Then I have to hurry to find a computer since Windows 7 will not be available for house use after October 31 and I do not want that Windows 8 horror.

I was also able to save my savings and I will not use any of it, my parents will give me back my stolen savings and that too I will not touch.

After the season of the Dallas Stars is over if my parents can be back to how they were before we moved here on November 9 I will be able to stay with them longer so I could have more money and maybe even finish high school if not then 21000$ is more than enough to start over. If I can stay with them that money could be use to get rid of body hair or/and travel or/and whatever else I want (i could even spend an hockey season in dallas!!!!!).

I did not have to spend one cent since it was my dad who paid with our insurance money (that will always be the case except for my clothes & personal products & cds & things like that).

When I will have internet back I will order my deodorant and probably before start building a new wardrobe (about that i will use 1000$ of my 5000$...with the 16000$ my parents owe me i will have 20000$...not all that will be for clothes the rest for things i want right away like Shumi or Stars things).

I made a mistake this morning, the passport picture was 11,50$, they still show the amount that it would of been then make the change (here we do not have 1 cents anymore).

Today I made three internet orders (wanted to do 2 but Overstock do not ship cds to my country and they wanted to add almost 50$ to the shipping cost of the 4 items picked so I got out of there) the Amazon orders I had no choice because the first CD for some reason is only available through sellers and not them (and it is my favorite cd of all time + wanted the 2 others are part of that collection so ordered them today too but had to ask for separated shipping since the last will be shipped in 3 to 5 weeks while the other was immediately ready to ship ~ that made me so angry to have to order these 3 cds separately that forgot to login Airmiles Shops so lost what that would of given me).

Sears Canada is 117,81$ (3 Disney long sleeves nightshirts at 14,99$ each [1 Snoopy 1 Grinch 1 Garfield] 1 thermal long sleeve shirt at 18,75$ 1 thermal pant at 18,74$ 1 two ways mirror at 19,99$) I will pick it in Rimouski.

Vanderbilt CA on Amazon Canada is 22,70$ (Batman Begins score at 19,21$)

Amazon Canada is 34,30$ (The Dark Knight score at 14,58$ The Dark Knight Rises score at 11,27$).

Tomorrow I will have to call Telus because this month they charged me more than double of what I pay per month, I will also try to get them to send my bills by mail instead of paying them by credit card (have no idea what my account number is + if i had that i would know why this month its almost triple what i pay normally).

Re: What did you SPEND money on today? - 12/04/14 05:57 PM

The bill problem with Telus is no more. I called yesterday and it was because eventhough I'm with the same regional code my new zone was considered a long distance call so I was credited 49,50$ and after my phone number was changed I was given thirty minutes of long distance call free for one year. Today I called again because my phone number was not activated (this only happens with older phones).

Got an email last night from the seller on Amazon Canada about the small box, they have discontinued it because they received it all in bad condition. They asked me if I wanted a refund (i doubt my card was charged since with that store we are only charged when its shipped and thats like that even when we buy from sellers) or get something else instead and I asked for a refund.

Re: What did you SPEND money on today? - 05/12/15 03:48 PM

Spent money in two places today. First it was my eyebrows electrolysis (10,06$) and then I bought two things at the biggest Jean Coutu (face cream at 34,99$ + face cream at 43,99$ for a total of 90,81$ - do not need any of these 2 right away but had a coupon for X20 the air miles for 50$ and more of cosmetics so used that coupon before it expired).
Posted By: Jana - Creativity Editor

Re: What did you SPEND money on today? - 05/12/15 04:01 PM

I wish I had enough eyebrows left to need that type of procedure done and a bit more hair up front. It all sounded expensive, but I didn't do the monetary conversions. smile
Posted By: Nancy Roussy

Re: What did you SPEND money on today? - 05/12/15 04:42 PM

Jana,

I thought it would be expensive too but since eyebrows is not a big surface it's not too bad. Of course when you start it is every week and you have more so then it costs more.

Depending on how much the insurance company will give me I may get electrolysis done for the rest of my face. If I get a big amount I will use it to move (out of this province probably) and if it is a huge amount I probably will go one year in Dallas with season tickets for the Stars. If it's not a big or huge amount but not too small I may be able to also get the bikini area done too (all of it - front and back) for this I think I will have to get laser then if some is left to get the rest by electrolysis.

My ultimate dream will be to only have my eyebrows line, eyelashes and hair on my head.

The coolest thing would be to become rich so I can do all that cool!

Shame because the other place it will cost me double but I really want these plaques on my window wall. I will buy them later (still 6 left today so no worry + they have a lot of items so maybe i will find something else).

She told me the next step was the hospital so I got her to do it instead. All free of charge, I'll bring here something Saturday and give it to her as a thanks (im used to give tips but i only did it 2 or 3 times at this place frown i feel bad about that).

Hi Michelle,

I'm almost next door to you in Wisconsin, but we don't have that grocery store chain in our state. My piano students know how much I love coffee, though, so I usually get gift cards at Christmas (which is great for frugal living!).

Wow! You are close. I am in Columbus, Ohio. Are you a Cheese Head? I don't play piano, but I do play the concert ukulele.

We have Kroger, Giant Eagle and groceries in our Walmart and Target stores.

I love coffee, too. We play around a lot with those little bags of the flavored coffee. Whatever is on sale. smile

Michelle,

I follow the Packers but I've never worn one of those foam things on my head! It's interesting that you play ukulele. It's become a popular instrument with music students right now.
Posted By: Michelle - Short Stories

Re: What did you SPEND money on today? - 10/28/15 08:42 PM

Angela - I picked up the ukulele after reading Jerry Spinelli's book, Stargirl. There was a character who played the ukulele.
Seriously, I was fascinated with the character and bought a purple soprano uke for $24.99 on Amazon an hour after I finished reading. I have never looked back. Later I bought a Luna concert. I love my concert, but would really like to someday have a tenor uke. smile
Posted By: Angela - Drama Movies

Re: What did you SPEND money on today? - 10/28/15 08:48 PM

Michelle,

Maybe you can help me with this. I have a young student who keeps telling me he has an electric ukulele. Is there such a thing? Also, what type of music do you prefer to play?
Posted By: Michelle - Short Stories

Re: What did you SPEND money on today? - 10/28/15 09:01 PM

I sure can.
Yes, there are ukuleles that are pre-amped to be played just like an electric guitar. Taylor Swift performs with one.

I love instrumental, I can sing a bit, but I really enjoy just playing around with the notes and strumming and I would love to learn what is called Clawhammer, a lot of picking and whatnot. I have never played an instrument in my life, I don't know how to read music, but I picked up the uke and was playing it an hour later. I think it's a wonderful instrument for kids, and it's economical, even the amped ones. Let's see the strings going down are

Goofy Cats Eat Avocados
(G C E A) I believe these follow piano notes. Don't quote me!!!!!

When they are in tune you can sing "My Dog Has Fleas"!

Oops, I should tell you there is a fourth bigger ukulele with four strings called a Baritone. That is what Beatles played on at times when the came to America. I think it's tuned to the four lowest strings of the guitar.

I look for Pop Music as well and I can do a great "Rainbow Connection"!!!!!
I also write my own silly songs.
Posted By: Angela - Drama Movies

Re: What did you SPEND money on today? - 10/28/15 09:36 PM

Thanks, Michelle! Yes, I've heard that you can pick up the uke and in a very short time be able to play a song (and have it be recognizable!). "The Rainbow Connection" is a song I've always liked, whether it's played on the piano or a string instrument. Have a great night.

Today is my 2-year old grandson's birthday. I purchased a card and a toy ukulele. After the conversation previously I thought this would be good for him. He has an electronic guitar but it only plays a few songs and he loves it. This is just the right size and he can makehis own music. He loves The Wiggles and sings and dances whenever they come on. I happened to see this Ukulele advertised at Ollies and hurried over to get one before they sold out.

What color is it? My fist Ukulele from Amazon was purple. smile
Posted By: Angie

Re: What did you SPEND money on today? - 11/04/15 08:01 PM

Michelle, it is a two-tone brown. It includes a book and audio CD. It is the perfect size for him as it is the same size as the plastic electronic guitar he has. At first with the guitar he wouldn't put it over his head but when he saw the guys playing on the Wiggles he copied what they did. He is so funny when the Wiggles perform.

Just bought two things on DERMAdoctor (1 Total NonScents Ultra-Gentle Antiperspirant at 22$ + 1 Gorilla Warfare Hair Minimizing Facial Moisturizer at 53$ - shipping of 9,95$ - total is 84,95$).

I'll get a facial in February and decided to try that face cream in between two facials. I always wondered if creams like that actually works. Normally I shave my entire face (except of course the sides of the eyes + nose + forehead) but I stopped a few months ago (just take out the black hairs with a tweezer) but I will start again on the night of the facial, I will start with the cream the next day and will use it morning and night until my next facial.

The deodorant is the best out there so it is worth the price, I discovered it many years ago and it was always 20$ until now but even if it was more than 30$ I would still buy it.

They give rewards which means discounts but since I always just buy the deodorant and I only need two bottles a year I never get to use them (it expires 90 days later) but if I decide to have my second facial so far away that I need at least one more bottle it will cost me less, if not then it will again be wasted. At the start other items from other brands was sold on the website but it all stopped years ago, of course back then they did not give points frown.

Styxx - I am in the United States, in the state of Ohio. We have Japanese restaurants here where you go in and sit at a table that wraps around a cooking area. The Chef takes orders and cooks each meal for each customer. He has a little show of using his tools, and throwing up eggs and catching them in his hat, as well as fun, friendly conversation. You can get a meal with the main dish, a salad, and a bowl of soup. Do you have those type of restaurants where you live?

Chel
Posted By: Styxx

Re: What did you SPEND money on today? - 02/04/16 12:22 PM

Chel- We have those restaurants that you mentioned, the prices for food might be higher than a fast food kind of Japanese resto. It's worth it though. The food is mouth-watering, the place very posh and the servers polite.

There is a resto called Maki Moto near my home and I eat there at least once a month. I'm glad that you have the same tastes as I do.

What's your favorite Japanese food? One food that I like is raw salmon.

Styxx,

It's not that cold. When I walked it was comfortable except when the wind was strong then it was cold. Sunday was very cold and the wind was very strong, that was the day I was supposed to start walking again but I postponed that to today instead blush haha smile.

As for pajamas for many years I would just put on any pajama pants and I would have a short or long sleeve on then add a sweatshirt on top, I would do that even when it was hot and I started last year just wearing normal pajamas and when it's a short sleeve I am cold often even with the heat on, that even happens sometimes when the pajama top is a long sleeve one.

What is the weather like in the Philippines?
Posted By: Styxx

Re: What did you SPEND money on today? - 02/09/16 04:53 AM

Hello Nancy,

The weather here in the Philippines is usually hot but since it's the early part of the year, it's partly cold. It's noon right now and the sun hasn't been shining lately. It's cloudy although the air is still humid. o(^◇^)o

I wear long shorts and halter tops to stay cool. I don't wear pajamas that much because it's still hot even with the air conditioner on or is it just me? >_<

Styxx,

I have a low tolerance of heat (takes all my energy away) so when it is hot outside and I am inside with an air conditioner working I still have no energy. Luckily here it does not get too hot here (we had less than 5 hot days our first summer here) and that's doubly good because in this house we have no air conditioner. The basement stays cold and it was still like that during the rare hot days cool.
Posted By: Styxx

Re: What did you SPEND money on today? - 02/09/16 05:13 AM

Hello Nancy,

The heat takes away your energy? Like Superman with Kryptonite? That's unique XD Our summer here ranges from 35C to 41C. That's so freaking hot that my family and I just go to the mall to cool off. Sadly, we have no basement. Do you stay sometimes stay at the basement? laugh

Styxx,

Yes, the more hot the weather is the less energy I have. People always are shocked when I tell them that I prefer Winter over Summer smile. That is really hot weather you have!

I spend most of my days in the basement since my computer and television is here plus I can be away from my parents, I can still hear them but at least I cannot see them. I have yet to sleep in my bedroom, I sleep on an air bed that is in an empty room downstairs, some of my friends cannot understand that, it's not like I am sleeping in the streets plus air beds are comfortable eventhough they don't last a long time.
Posted By: Styxx

Re: What did you SPEND money on today? - 02/09/16 07:20 AM

Hello Nancy,

Yes. It's really hot out here but I enjoy the heat all the while. laugh

If you want to sleep and stay at the basements, that's fine by me. People are just too narrow-minded because they can't comprehend that you are a basement sleeper. Me, I sleep on a wooden bed with a thin mattress and it's actually good for my back than those fluffy beds.

Somebody used my Visa four times in Chicago!

Got my latest bill today and when I saw that I immediately called them. My card was blocked then he told me that they will send me a new card and that everything is credited and they will investigate what exactly happened and who did it.

There were four frauds. The first 33,19$, the second 46,69$, the third 142,65$ and the fourth was a credit of 134,74$ so a total of 87,79$.

I was told that I could go to my bank and pay what I owe with no problems eventhough that card does not exist anymore because of that fraud.

The tank top was mainly bought because I need to go see my doctor to show her something on my right underarm, it is loose so would of hid my belly but finally my doctor has her upcoming schedule and Tuesday there was room and the sound of the secretary told me that if I did not take that appointment it could be long so I took it (hopefully its nothing serious and if so my aesthetician will take care of it and i wont need to wait for the only dermatologist in my region to have an appointment for me). I will try to find another tank top for that appointment because the ones I have I do not want to start wearing now. These two tops would just be worn as pajamas that's all so no lost.

Just made an order on Amazon Canada, mom asked me tonight to buy a book for her and it was not enough for free shipping so I was looking around and thought about the butter rum Lifesavers that I haven't eaten in so long so checked and they had a twenty pack and it ends up being less than 2$ per rolls so I happily got it and I hope they have not changed the recipe since the last time I was able to get some (her book is 22,46$ & my candy is 33,22$ - free shipping - total of 61,77$ - mom will pay me later).

Gave my part of the satellite bill to mom tonight, put it on her television remote table after she was in bed, dad this month decided to pay that bill in advance and now they are in money trouble because of that so she had left a note on my keyboard that I found after getting up.

They did not mention that the last purse I bought is a mini purse, it is big enough for everything I put in purses (i could use a pouch as a purse that is how little i have in them) but there is no place for a wallet and that wallet matched it this is what sucks more about it (the price was low so that does not bother me), I gave the wallet to mom (did not ask for the money) and she says she will set it aside but all my other purses are either too small for a wallet or have a wallet for it so unless I want another purse I will never use it.
