I'm having trouble getting my calories down post-vacation. I think the heat is a factor. I don't want to cook, so I'm grazing....
Yesterday I said I would spend the day at home, but then I remembered that I had a $5 Goodwill coupon that I needed to use before it expired. So I went to Goodwill and spent quite a bit of time there. Which was nice, because it was air-conditioned!
I spent $68. Only $3 was for me -- three small Pyrex bowls. The rest was gifts -- mostly books and clothing, which will go to my grandchildren, my sister and my BIL.
One item was $10 and I didn't notice; it was a shirt that was brand-new with tags. I assumed it was $5 like the other shirts, but they marked it higher. I probably wouldn't have bought it had I noted the price, but it was still a good deal. The original tag was marked $50.
The $5 coupon did not quite compensate for the tax!
I did not expect to spend this much, but having gifts stockpiled will really help at birthdays and Christmas.
I have been earning points on the AARP site. Since I am a member, I get double points on quizzes and other activities. It's more interesting than doing surveys. The points are only good for discounts on gift cards, so you can't get one free, which is a disappointment, but every little bit helps.
