Money Hustle


Hello all well here's my story for the week... so far. I am trying to make a dollar out of 15 cents. I have been doing mystery shopping jobs for the last 3-4 days. I must say I have made a nice piece of $$.($200) Now I just have to wait until they send me my check. I hate that part. I am trying to make as much money as I can so that I can fund one of my hobbies and that's podcast radio. I love doing my radio show but it is now costing me $$. The cheapest I can get my podcast for is $6 a month for now. So I am trying to make $1 a day or more if I can that's why I am busting my a** when it comes to these mystery shop jobs. I am also trying to put more stuff out on my online store ,  right now nobody is buying but...... I did get 50 cents from amazon don't know why but I'll take it. Every penny helps toward my podcast goals.

I am doing my podcast for free with a limit of 5 hours later on I will want more hours. So that's why I am saving up for it now. Well that's my story what do you think?

Expensive Week!!!



Hello All, Man this week has been Expensive!!! First I needed new glasses. My old  glases I have had for 9 years and I needed new glasses because getting older mean my vision is not as good as it use to be. Well got the prescription. But the eyeglass man tells me  with the new glasses and new frames. Which will be cheap that bill will cost be.... $350 bucks!!! for glasses. I think that's crazy what about you?

Also I am getting some stuff dry cleaned, when did that bill go up? 4 things that are being cleaned cost me $25 bucks. I wanted to tell him the cleaners to forget it but I needed these things cleaned for my trip. So I bite the bullet and spent the money. How does people who wear suits to work afford the cost of getting their suits cleaned once a week. That's an expensive habit. The average cost of cleaning say a dress is $7 dollars. Depending on what the material is on your clothing it could cost more.

Last I had an eye problem and my doctor gave me medication for it. Went to the pharmacy to get it . She said it would be $80 bucks I told her to keep it. I am not paying $80 bucks for some eye drops. That's crazy. My eye problems  is not life & death this medication just makes the problem go away faster for that price I will wait until the problem goes away by itself and it will. So that's the spending and non spending story. What do you think?

Showing You My Atlantic City Room

Really That Much???


Hello All, well I am back from the beautiful Atlantic City, ( watch for my upcoming videos). That is not what I am talking about today I am talking about the difference in pricing here and in New Jersey when it comes to a Walmart. I visited my mother this past week and I love the Walmart by her in New jersey . Can you say they are cheap!! They are also a Super Walmart which means that they are a store and supermarket all in one. I find when I shop at my mothers Walmart the prices are half of what they are here in New York. So when I go I make sure to stock up on all the products that I need. I love that Walmart and  what I love the most about it is that the more you buy the better it is for my stock.

My Atlantic City Trip was a good one. I came back a Winner which is rare for me. With hotel cost $57 for 2 night stay, food $50 bucks for 2 nights dinner I bring my lunch and breakfast from home. free parking normally it would have cost us $10 a day but we got a free parking voucher from the front desk for being guest of the hotel. Gambling and tip money for drinks about $1000 for two people. I am glad to say  we won all of that back plus we came home with an extra $200 in our pocket for a later time. Thank you Atlantic City for the free trip.

Volunteering Part 2


Hello All well here's Part 2 on my volunteering for the WE Event I told you about. This event was held at the Theater in Madison Square Gardens. There were a lot of Junior high school kids  their parents, teachers it was about 300 people. First this organization  WE was a little unorganized. They had a lot of volunteers and did not know what to do with them. Mind you we had training on Monday and by Wednesday everything had changed. Go figure.
The event itself was good Whoopi Goldberg, African Choir, Chelsey Clinton ( that's her in the picture) The Prime Minster of Canada the crowd  cheered for him like he was a rock star.

Over all it was an experience. The breakfast they served the volunteers was coffee, juice a granola bar and apples. I kid you not. The lunch was no better it was Vegan. What the heck is Vegan anyway. I tell you this group who ran this even do not believe in food. We New Yorker's like to eat food food.

As I said it was a great experience one that I would probably not do again  with this group since overall it cost me about $40 bucks in transportation and food to eat. Beside that I did not get that personal feeling of satisfation that one get from volunteering with this event.

 That's my story what do you think?
