Friday financials

This was a pay week, and we did pretty well with the budget. Everything’s paid and I did do some extra, the REI stuff$200, and old navy at $35. It’ll be a little tight because of these but we should be ok. Also, I want my husband to go get a fitbit, so that’ll be an extra $100.

I’ve got plenty of groceries, and we will eat from the freezer and pantry too. I’ll need some fresh vegies next week but not much as our garden is giving us cucumbers, onions, some herbs and a few tomatoes. We need to run to the nursery and get some squah plants as my daughter seems to think she didn’t think she planted any. It’s too late to start from seed and I’m not paying ridiculous prices for zucchini and summer squash. Also, we have our beautiful eggs so that’ll be a frittata night. Plus we had a great crop of potatoes. We all love potatoes. 

All in all good and I put some money over in savings. Next check, I want to finish our Santa fund. I’d like to start paying extra on the new car but saving is higher on the list ,as insurance for the cars will be due in October. 

I actually sold something on eBay. I use to sell every week and at one point had a store for my life magazines. But, I got pretty turned off to eBay s fees etc. But I had some cowboy Tepco ( very popular) and sold them . I might see what else I can put on. I’m thinking those Star Trek 12″ figures . Maybe a lot of 6 and see if I get any interest. 

Off to the library. Bookclub was kinda boring but so were the books( ha, ha!) .

the myeloma beacon is starting an online book club, and I think our first book will be “the Emperor of all Maladies”.

if you’re interested, go the myeloma beacon and check it out. 

Food bank drop off and other miscellaneous things!

So, this week we dropped off 10 boxes of food to our local Applegate food bank that is run by a church. It’s right across the street from the library so it’s very convenient . B has lots of food samples that don’t always get used. He can only take so much to different stores. So this is a way to help our community get many organic, gluten free, and other stuff that many of these people would ever get because they’re expensive.  I’m glad we can do our little part.

I’ve finished labeling the bins in the laundry room. So that part is done.

I sold the 3 Navajo rugs on Ebay. Not for a lot but one did sell for $47, so I felt good about that. three more things gone. I’m going to put the few Easter things I have in another small bin, then I’ll put that out there too. As I said, I’m getting rid of the armoire and I’m going to look around and see if there’s any other furniture items. We don’t have that much in the way of furniture but I’ll look and see if something else can make room. I’m totally into space and eliminating extra stuff.

Next week I’m going to get started on photos and redoing albums. This seems like a big job.

All the monthly bills are done, except the very end of the month, which is the water and Verizon.

Dinner is either pizza or whatever because for some reason after I got home from the library at 2 pm , I got a terrific headache,and still have it. …they maybe on their own for food.
