Happy Thanskgiving to all. Now Tues was as follows, My partner is retired and works parttime on computers at a school, Another job came in for in to work at a different school on computers so he will be working 2 days at one school and 2 days at another Yea. This spells extra money for our trips. Me I took advantage of ebay's 20 cent sale and listed a whole lot of things for the holidays. I won $4.00 in scratch off tickets. So yea again Tuesday was a very good day for making money. My spending has been out of control with thanksgiving and buying extra food items and eating out we spend into uptil now about $200.00. But staring tomarrow things will be different.

This was a suprise to me, Yesterday was payday, My co worker was saying how her paycheck was low and asked me to look at it to see why. When I looked at all her deduction from her check. Money was being deducted from her check in the amt of $150.00 every 2 weeks form her credit card company's collections dept. Because she owes them $4000. it was 2000.00 but with interest and late payments it turned into 4000. I was so made at her and shocked at the same time. We make little as is for people living in New York and for her to go and let someone take her money for her stupid purchases that was probably not need. she could have taken that $150.00 and put it in saving for her kids or something that would benefit her in the long run. I tried to explain to her what was going on with her paycheck and her answer to me was "that's part of life being in debt and I said "yea ok" and walked away.
With Thanksgiving just around the corner, My office mates today were talking about having a x-mas party. They decided to have the party at the Olive Garden in Manhattan and they stated that they wanted $10.00 each from each person in the group gift for the manager's gift. she's nice but... $10.00 is kinda expensive for my right now. oh well guess I have to skip something else to make up for.
As far as Thanksgiving I am going to Pathmark food shopping they have the 10 items for $10 sale. Me and my mate are doing this holiday very quite a small dinner for two and some videos that we get from the library. That's all for us.
With the holidays here so is the spending.
Just wanted to share a interesting event yesterday. Yesterday I went to an estate sale. The man that was having the sale was giving everything in the house away for free. He said he just wanted to get rid of it. There was a fair amount of people inside not to much stuff was in the house. But I came away with a nice boiling pot in white, camera, tape recorder all free. I love when you get free stuff don't you.
I am losing the $20.00 challenge, I am putting my energy else where. I will start fresh on Dec 1, 2006. My goal is to get to $1000.00 by Dec 1 2007
I seem to alway find coins in parking lot, So far I have found 8 cents last week
change total = .41
Beside the weather being nice, We had a great sunday selling at the Flea market.Yesterday we said we were just going to try to make the rent and the inventory which we did to day was our profit and yea we made over $200.00! And I met a guy that said he would sell me some old barbies from his daughters who are now grown up and do not want them once he gets them out of the Basment. Did I mention I love barbie olds ones at that. And I am proud of myself I did not spend one dime at the flea market. We brought our own food and drink. So all day I spent basking in the sun and making money.
We still have a long way to go for our bills and vaction to be paid off.But by doing flea markets for the holidays hope that put some extra in our pockets. Thanks to all for all the great support that you give that is why I love this place. There are always great people here.
This is the weekend that me and my partner do a weekend flea market. We do this event every year. Today was a good day we made over $150.00. Which will go toward growing our flea market business and bills. We hope Sunday will be a little higher.
On another note I failed at just taking $40.00 weekly to work with me this week. But I am going to try again until I get it right. I spent about $25.00 over what I was suppose to this week. But over all this has been a very good money week for me With found money and unexpected money comming my way.
Yea! For November so far . Just got an unexpected check from the city for a tax progam that I have with my home mortage. The governer gave us a $57.00 refund. Yes I love unexpected and found money don't you. This will go toward my Alaska Cruse Next year.
