Spending Money... Choose Wisely

 I had a hospital procedure done this morning and I couldn't have breakfast so I thought that I was more than entitled to have one on the way home. Hubby agreed but then I thought about it. I still had pretty bad cramping and although I was starving, I thought that I would be a lot more comfortable having breakfast at home... which I did and then headed straight up to bed and slept for 2 hours straight.

So my point... don't spend money because you think that you deserve it. Have that breakfast when you are going to enjoy every mouthful!!


Hope that I gave you something to think about today :) Here is to making 2017 the most profitable year that you have ever had!
---------What I Did Today-------------
Went for a long walk and picked up garbage that I found on the side of the road! Did a small number of dishes by hand instead of putting them in the dishwasher. Made dessert with what I had in the pantry. Use up what you have!!! The Kitchen Gift Basket... Perfect For Anyone on Your Gift List

About Those Credit Cards You Have Been Collecting

I have one Canadian credit card and one American credit card. That's it... Have to admit that there was a time when I accepted any card that any store wanted to give me. Bad idea... just keep it to one or two at the very most!!

Find a Hobby That Isn't Going To Cost You Anything

 For me, that would be the family tree. And no you don't have to join a site that will charge you. Plenty give space for free to work on your tree... but you are going to have to do the searching for yourself... and that is half the fun!!!

---------What I Did Today-------------
Watered everything in the garden, keeping an eye open for ticks and the minute that I stopped... the skies opened and it started to rain... in buckets!!  Free water!!!

Fill Up Your Soap Dispensers

We looked and looked until we could find the best price for generic hand soap for our dispensers. Well we found it at Costco... though it might be different for you. We then fill up our dispensers about 3/4 full and then I top it up with the soaps that I received for Christmas from Bath And Body Works. I don't think that I will ever run out of their soaps and I will ask for more next Christmas. haha...

How Far Can You Walk??

This tip has nothing to do with staying cool... well in a way it does unless it's blisteringly hot!!  Try walking instead of driving if it is possible. Not only do you have the benefit of the extra exercise, but you won't be spending extra money on gas.
