More Goodwill Finds

December 5th, 2018 at 06:24 am

Yesterday, while GS2 was in his cooking class after school, I perused the nearby Goodwill. I bought two things -- a $2 figurine to put in BFF's Christmas bag, and a $3 duck decoy. I thought I would give it to XH, but after taking a look online, I will offer it on eBay instead. It is signed and dated by the artist. Prices on eBay are all over the place, from $50 to $325. If it doesn't sell, I can always give it to him next year.

In the evening I went to a free screening of "Second Act" with Jennifer Lopez. It was pretty formulaic, and I was glad I hadn't paid to see it.

No more after-school care this week, due to play dates and appointments.

I scheduled another mystery shop for Sunday.

Oh, and I got a message from Social Security that I will get a cost-of-living raise in January. I will get $30 more each month. Believe it or not, that makes me happy!

    Yay on the cost of living raise!

    Sounds like that Goodwill shop was a good one.

    Nothing yet from the SSA about the COLA, but did get a letter saying they will deduct the Part B premium from the December check. I know what the increase is, but I want to see it in writing.

    The deposit this month is late, the day after Christmas. Less money likely will be spent on Christmas by doting grandparents this year as a result.
