Little Bit of Everything

August 15th, 2013 at 10:48 am

Here's what I've been doing:

Volunteering my sewing skills to hem marching band pants. The band only has 180 members, so it didn't take long with many hands. Turns out to have been fun and free entertainment with some nice ladies.

Confronting the neighbors (2 adults and four kids) playing basketball after 10:30pm on a week night. The hoop and driveway are really, really close to my daughter's bedroom. I hope I don't have to do it again. Ick!

Earning my daily Swagbucks. I'm honestly getting a little tired of it, but there's an addictive quality that I can't yet let go of. Waiting for my last request of $25 to be deposited in my PayPal account. Only 500+ Swagbucks away from the next redemption.

Completed a Pinecone survey. I cashed out my payment earlier today. I think it should be in my account tomorrow.

Today is payday. I need to pay bills and get that Southwest card paid off!! I keep seeing lots of money going out in our future. Band picture (only $7), Band jacket(?), pictures for youngest daughter, fundraisers(!?), driver's ed, at least one tree for the back yard...I hope that is it. Not sure. I really would like to buckle down and spend NOTHING!!

I will keep today a no spend day since I have cleaning and bills to take care off. No need to do anything else, but make a trip to pick up my daughter from the last day of band camp.

I think I will also gather some items to take to Goodwill tomorrow. I know I have things in the basement that have already been set aside for that, I just need to do it!!

Little bit of everything, huh? Have a frugal day!!

    Sounds like a very productive day/week. Good for you. I agree that SB is addicting - especially since if you look at the dollar amount/hour it is usually pitiful. But, I still do it and like getting the little rewards.

    I know what you mean about SBs getting tiring, even though it is addicting. I've been doing it for over 3 years now, and there was a time where I took a break of nearly six months - just doing the dailies and whatever I got from searches.

    I usually only do SB five days a week, except for the daily poll, NOSO, and search bar, which take seconds. That gives me the break I need from it to not be so tiring. 2 days off in a row and I'm ready to do it again for the next five.
