Feeling Lost Today

Hey Everyone. Here's my story for the week. Have you every woke up to a feeling of being lost and your not sure  what direction your life should be going ? I woke up with that feeling today and yesterday. So what I did was I started to purge my life and my things. I cleaned out all of the clothes and books that I did not need anymore and I either donated them or dumped them in the garbage.
I am trying to live a simple life and getting rid of unnecessary stuff in my life is a start.
I have so many website and blogs and things that are not making me money and I have lost interest in them they are going next. Have you every wanted your life to be as simple as possible. I am heading toward that right now in my life. I want a simple life. I also want to live in a tiny house like this





Also let me tell you what happen I got depressed because I spent $60 on eating out twice this week and the food was crap. Where I live the places to eat good food is non-existence. Also I realized that over the course of 3 weeks I have spend over $85 on lottery tickets. Hoping that I can win something. Now if that isn't something to get you depressed about I don't know what is?
So that's my story so far. What do you think?

They Got Me!!


Hello Everyone, Here's my story for the Week. They got me!! I visited my local casino yesterday with a budget of $110 to spend. They took most of it, but on the flip side I did win $133. But the thing that really got me was that I did not get any free play, free food nothing.  My local casino even fired the waitress that serve you coffee and water for free. Now you have to order your drinks through the machine and they cost money.

My local casino is now officially a rip off to anybody that plays there. They take your money and offer you nothing in return. I was watching people playing the slot machines there and some people looked likes they were zombies playing two and three slot machines at a time and losing so much money. It was really scary to watch people wasting all that money and not  even  get a small jackpot. I get more incentives to play when I go to Vegas and Atlantic city. At least in these two places I get free rooms,free food and  free slot play. After yesterday that will be my last time going there . It use to be fun now it's just a plain old rip off and I am bored with it.

Trying To Save A Buck!


 

Hello Everyone, Well here's my story so far. I went to a Free Coupon Event Yesterday and her's some of the highlights that was talked about....

Never use coupons on full priced items.
Wait until the item you want to buy is at rock bottom in price and then use your coupon for it.
In 3 months of using coupons you should be saving 50% on your grocery bills.
Use your coupons to purchase food for the food bank and other worthy charities.
Everyone should have an Emergency food panty just like you have an emergency money fund.
Always have a price in mind of what you want to pay when it comes to your grocery shopping. Example for a box of cereal say that in your mind you will not pay over $2.50 a box and stick to that price when you go food shopping.
Look in your local newspapers and on line for coupons.
Also the Extreme Coupon Reality Show is rigged-ed but we all knew that right.
The event was interesting it's just that I live In New York and the presenters were from Las Vegas which you can not compare because their supermarkets is way cheaper then mine. I know I go to them when I visit Vegas and I love their prices. 
The bottom line was the event was informative and it gave me a good idea  on how to save a buck or two. But my partner who went with me said he already does what they talked about. So he gained nothing from this event. So that's my story what do you think?

Not Feeling It


Hey everyone, Here's the story for the week. Not to much to tell. As you can see  my Atlantic City trip was canceled because of the weather. It was suppose to snow, rain and get icy but you know the weather people were all wrong about that. It did get cold but no snow and ice. But I will be going  to A.C in May.Hopefully I will have nicer weather. Now that I have this week to myself meaning no doctors appointments or things that needed to be done. I started the week getting my banking and investments in order. I also worked on my back yard and donations that I need to give away. So so far it's has been a productive week even thought I did not get a chance to go gambling.

Looks like spring is here and I am happy . That means I can go outside more because the weather will be calling me. Still looking for work and ways to save money and make it but other then that nothing to really report. My week has been kinda slow. So that's my story so far short and to the point.
                                                              So what do you think?

Rain....



Hello Everyone, How are you? Here's my story this week. It's bad weather all the way. I am planning a trip this Sunday and now I might have to cancel it because Mother Nature is pissed off and  she might give New York Snow this weekend. Really Mother Nature Snow! So if it snows my Sunday trip might be canceled. Can I tell you this is like the 5th time I have canceled this trip. I am getting tired of canceling. I was suppose to go to Atlantic City to see a free show get my free buffet meal  do some gambling. Along the way I would stop over to give my mother her Christmas gifts- Don't ask it's a long story about the  Christmas gifts.

I did some mystery shops this week. Have not done them in a long time I am  out of practice. But the money was good so I did them for 3 days. Hopefully if all goes well I will be getting $100. I am still on the look out for more, but then again I am picky of what I do when it comes to picking shop. I need the money but it has to be worth my time for me to do it. Know why I mean?

Did I tell you that I have a tenant living in my old house and I kinda like this tenant. I get good vibes from her and her family and she always pays on time. Well this month I was looking for her rent check and nothing. So I called her and she said she mailed it late. That was fine  with me because she always pays on time. But I always think about what was told to me from a landlord that I worked with. If you rent to others never I mean never depend on their rent checks to pay your bill because if you do you will be assed out. He was right.
                          
                                       Well that's my story for the week what do you think?
