Random Thoughts

July 10th, 2014 at 06:08 am

I have a Pinecone survey waiting to be completed. That means I will have $3 to apply to my snowflake goal.

I redeemed Bing and Swagbucks points for Amazon gift cards awhile back. They have posted to my Swagbucks account and I have added them to Amazon. Ten dollars waiting to be spent!

I got my bathroom painting done yesterday. I do have some touch ups to do. The next project I will be working on is to make decorator pillow covers for my sister. Smile

The girls and I need to do some shopping. They have a couple of semi dressy events coming up. I think we will look for dresses and hope for some clearance!! I'm also planning to treat them to lunch out since our errand will correspond with lunch time and it will be out of the way to drive all the way home after our first appointment today. The frugal me should just pack a lunch, but we rarely eat out, so I'm going for it.

As mentioned before, my husband is on the promotion list for Major. We are still waiting for orders that make it official. They are often issued at the first of the month. It didn't happen this month, so hoping for August! The plan is to save the money, but I need to figure out if some of that pay increase should be put towards retirement.

My only sale this week was the Box Tops. I didn't get items listed on Ebay on Tuesday night like I planned. There is a box of things ready to sell. I will try again soon to get more listed.

See? Random thoughts! Have you found a good clearance deal lately? Have you sold anything or found a little money (snowflake) recently?

    No, but dang, I could sure use some snowflakes! (I'm thinking of them as "raindrops" these days because last winter was so awful. Wink )

    In some cases I'm letting go of things I could get money for, simply because I need the clutter out NOW and don't have the time. I had some DVD box sets I could have sold, but I seemed to remember some of the discs skipped, and I'd have had to watch hours and hours of shows to figure out which ones, or else risk having to refund people later. So I just put 'em on the free table.

    Yes, we found a good clearance deal yesterday at a local shop store. They are getting rid of the summer stock and I bought a pair of shoes for about 1/3 of original cost.
