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 https://ipsosus.shopmetrics.com/ (variety) and https://shopperinformars.archondev.com/ (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.
