Getting ready for a trip

June 30th, 2010 at 04:18 pm

Tomorrow I'm heading out to North Carolina to visit my sister and cousins, and to check in on my antiques booth. I haven't even started packing yet, but I've made my list! As usual, I will try to make this as frugal as possible. I'm driving (so I can haul merchandise) and I will be very picky about where I fill up, and what I eat. I'm going to take snacks in the car, and maybe I won't have to stop to eat at all. I'm going to the library on my lunch hour to get some book CDs for entertainment.

I haven't spent much lately. Hit a few garage sales this past weekend and got a few things for the booth, but no big finds. And I got a McDonald's lunch one day, when I felt like getting out of the office -- it didn't taste nearly as good as I anticipated.

I recently started taking a supplement called Align -- it's a probiotic (sp?) and so far it's working wonderfully for me! I had a $5 coupon for it, so I thought I'd give it a whirl, and I'm so glad. I've had IBS-type problems for a long time and had pretty much given up that I was ever going to solve them. Now I can really tell the difference after just a few days. I think it's one of those things that works only for some people -- digestive problems are so varied -- but it seems to be working for me!

So I think it's going to be a new regular expense for me -- about $1 a day, so not too bad.

    Have fun! Reading about North Caroline makes me think of One Tree Hill (I'm sure that's where it's set)

    I haven't heard of Align but I am glad that the supplement leads to good results for you. I wish that these kinds of things were covered by insurance, especially when they are proven to help people. Good luck with it!

    My partner takes align and she says it really helps her. I stocked up at Costco where it was cheap. Good luck with that! I like your blog even if this is the first time I posted any comments. I've been reading even before you took your break so I'm glad you're back.
