Yesterday I went to the local senior center to get some help with installing my Uber app. I wasn't having trouble with the app per se, but couldn't get it to accept the debit card I wanted to use. The debit card was a benefit from the senior center, so that's why I went there for help. They couldn't help but did refer me to someone who could. Turns out I was just entering the wrong zipcode.
A word about the debit card -- it is a benefit for seniors at a certain income level. I can use it for transit, which includes buses, trains, taxis and ride services. I'm not sure if I can use it for air travel. Anyway, I deposit money into the account, and it doubles in value when used -- i.e., if I have $50 in the account I can spend $100. A really nice benefit. Since I am already "ride-free" on local buses and trains, I plan to use it mostly for Uber. I'll use it for getting to and from the airport in a few weeks.
The senior center is close to Aldi, so I went there again to get ten more items. $22. Variables are now at 72%, which is higher than I would like for this point in the month. Payday is tomorrow, so I'll be doing some non-variable spending, but I'm also going to order some pet supplies from Amazon.
Snow is in the forecast today! It's cold enough -- I had to turn on the radiator this morning.

It's cold downstate too and started to snow. My husband's brother lives in Kansas and they have already received 6 inches of snow.
