Holiday Vacation

Hello Everyone, How are you today. Me I am tired. Just got back yesterday from a 10 day cruise and I am tired. But I had fun and it was hot. I went to the Bahamas and the weather and days were great. I ate a lot and  had fun on the ship. But most importantly we got a lot of unexpected things. First we got to eat in 4 specialty restaurants that was a treat. The casino on the cruse  was very good to us I won $300 dollars. Then we got $400 in on board credit from the cruise line. So for the holidays we went shopping and got a lot of stuff . What the heck the cruise line was footing the bill so we spent their money. Overall if you get a chance take a cruise for the holidays trust me you will enjoy it. So what's your plans for 2017?  Well that's my story what do you think???

Foods To Darn High!!!

Hello everyone, Well here's the story for the week. First I got my visa bill  yesterday and I saw how much I spent on food and eating out for the month. I spend around $400 and that was for 2 people. I did manage to keep my food bill low, but is it me I still think $400 a month of eating for 2 people is still to much??

Drug companies and insurance I Hate Hate Hate them!!! here's why I went to the pharmacy yesterday to get my insulin. Yes I am a diabetic. And I could not get it . The pharmacy stated that my drugs now have to come through mail order.  When did that happen!! So I called the mail order company that is now doing my drugs and they stated that I could not get my insulin right now. It would take 10-12 days. Hello I am leaving in 3 days on a cruise and  I need my insulin. I was screaming at them over the phone. They told me to pay for it one time out of pocket. Do you know how much insulin cost . I will tell you $700 1 box of 6   Do I look like I have $700 to give to the pharmacy. I  told the mail order company. I also also told then the next call I make will be to my lawyer so when I sue them for not getting me my life and death medication I would be able to pay the $700 out of pocket.  The mail order company found a way to get me my medication through my local pharmacy for my trip. I hate mail order medication.

So that's my story so far trying to plan for my cruise next week and doing it on the cheap. I have spent way to much on clothing for 2  people $300. I think my partner over did it this cost I blame on him.  Have a great Holiday and I will speak to you when I get back. Caribbean Here I come.....
So what do you think?

Twenty Dollar Challenge Update

Good Morning  Everyone Here's the story for the week. It really pays to pay attention to coupons. I went to Sears, Yes I know they will be out of business in 2017. There goes my job search (LOL) Well they had a 20% off coupon if you spend $50 bucks or more. You know I spent that because I am trying to get some fresh things for my trip. That coupon saved me $19.89 which is going toward my challenge.

I won I won  $20 on a scratch off ticket. So that's good. Also I am doing some serious mystery shopping this month so that should add $75 to my challenge. So far it's been a pretty good month.

I did mention that I opened a online store but so far nothing special but I am trying. I have not stop rolling my coins for the investment challenge. Last time I rolled coins it was about $45 and I still got plenty of coins to go. will keep you posted. So that's my story what do you think?
