Yesterday's spending was $18 at Aldi. I bought oatmeal, cheese, syrup, applesauce, cream cheese, and a pack of bottled water for the car. Variables are up to 58%. Only five days to go.

I looked up my account on the Choice site and I now have upwards of 20,000 points. Unfortunately, that is right in between redeeming it for a $50 gift card and a $100 gift card. I won't be earning any more points for a while, so I want to get full use of them. Maybe I will save them for a free room, though I don't know when I will travel again.

My BOA travel card points -- most of them -- are still pending.

I've been cruising the mystery shopping sites, but not finding anything close enough. I'm also focusing on shops that pay outright, rather than reimburse for purchases.

I will be redeeming $3 from Pine Cone today.

Ordinarily Fridays are free days for me, but DIL is working today. So I'll have a half day to get my chores done, one of which is to make granola. Because I just keep eating it!

    Not sure if I gave you these before, but you should find shops that won't cost you out of pocket at Ipsos and Informa Research (variety) and (banks). Every site is different, but next week should be a decent week to find June shops.

    No, these are new to me. Wow, how do you keep track of it all!

    I am just curious why you buy bottled water if you are trying to save money. You could get a reusable bottle and refill it at a tap.

    Of all the hotel programs I've used, Choice seems to be the best bet for bonus points, amazon cards, etc.

    CLL, I buy packs of bottled water which I keep in the trunk of the car, mainly for emergencies or for times when I am thirsty on the road. At home, I do not use bottled water, I fill reusable bottles with tap water, as you do.
