Another day, a few more pennies

June 24th, 2015 at 06:25 am

Well, the change-finding tapered off yesterday. I found only 3 pennies.

My total spending yesterday was .17. That's how much postage I needed to add to the three Forever stamps I placed on the big envelope heading to the Unclaimed Property Division.

My DIL was gracious about delaying her birthday party. I didn't add that her gift hasn't arrived, and may not for a week or so. I bought it from Amazon, but it was from one of their affiliate merchants.

However, the Happy Hour was also changed to Monday, so the adjustment wasn't even necessary. I'll let it stand, though. I can't pull off a birthday dinner after a day of work. I don't know what I was thinking in the first place.

I had a talk with the other retiree in our office. She is younger, and she has MS. But she is married, so she can go on her husband's insurance. She is concerned about her loss of income, and wants to find another job. I don't think it will be that easy, unless she has connections. Once you pass 60, no one even looks at you any more. Add to that her illness. I advised her to look at what she can cut in her lifestyle, and she said there is nothing to cut. But I know she goes out for lunch regularly, and carries a Coach bag and wears Uggs. And I know she has doled out a lot of cash to her grown children. I hope she figures it out.

I have five more days, counting today. Such a strange feeling!

    I'm going to a family reunion up in Michigan over the 4th weekend. After that, I'm going to set up a loose schedule. Blocks of time for desk work, time for exercise, time for housework/organizing, etc. Priority is more sleeping and relaxing, though, at least at first!

    Sometimes the only way people can figure it out is to end up in that situation where they need to cut their expenses. Hopefully she will be able to get some ideas from other people. Excited for you with only 5 days left!
