CocoaDiva43: Congrats on your no spend and no drive day.

katiecoupon13: Congrats on your no spend day. Glad that you did good at the free market.

claire7771: Glad that you were able to find some good deals at the grocery store. Good luck not wasting food, that is one of my goals as well.

  • The dollar store in the mall is closing..Everything is $.79. I picked up (8) 3 ct of menís razors, (3) earbuds, (2) 300 ct of q-tips, (3) 40 length tin foil, (1) nail polish remover and (5) Sesame Street comb sets (donation).
  • I ate 7 pancakes at McDonaldís to end Passover. I had a small hamburger, fries and free drink at another McDonalds. I tried buttermilk coleslaw and a free order of Donut holes at Dave n Busters. A little splurge this month.
  • I needed drinking glasses. I played Big Bass at Dave n Busters. I won 500 tickets on one spin plus 40 on the bonus spin. This covered the two needed glasses.
  • I received another $25 co-pay bill which I paid off immediately.
  • I calculated the cost and retail of the two boxes of items for my son. Iíve paid $34.69 for $889.51 worth of merchandise.. The boxes contain: shirts, shoes, socks, underwear, shorts, razors, floss and toothbrushes.
  • I spent $30 on pencils and erasers at Targetís clearance. I saved $68. I have over 1,050 pencils and 2,500 erasers to donate to schools in the fall.

I purchased a Lego set at Target and resold it for a 25% profit. I purchased a different Lego set online. I may flip it for a 30% profit or save it for the holidays. I can not get such returns in a savings institution.

I am really displeased with the tone of the management office. I tend to leave my phone off preferring to control the flow of calls (i do not own a smart phone).. They tried to call a handful of times but did not leave a message. I emailed after the maintenance man saw me in the laundry room. Their response email stated that they sought information if I am renewing because they want to get the unit on the market. I see how much they value my tenancy-- it is time to move on to a more tenant, less greed based residency situation.

1 low spend day.

Mother nature good luck finding a better rental situation, a good landlord/ rental company is hard to find, in my case we could get a slightly better place for the same $$ right now but it's not worth it since we have a decent landlord.

Today grocery budget reset I started the week at 13/100 bc I over spent and then today spent $29 at Publix so I'm at 42/100, I am still trying to not let food go to waste I made Monday's meal ahead w spinach that I needed to cook (made the filling for veggie quesadillas) and I'm making bone broth w the leftover bones and scraps from Easter prime rib, I have 2 bananas that are slightly too ripe so maybe I will make a half batch of mini muffins w those.
