Disappointed



 Hello all, well here's my story today. I am disappointed in Bj's. I went over to the store yesterday because I have a gift certificate and I wanted to know how long I had  before it expired . I went into the store that I had not been in for over a year. I used a  coupon for the free 3 month membership.  That helped me from paying for a membership that I would not be using. I think they charge $50 for the year. 

So I looked around while I was there the lines were pretty long I guess since Thanksgiving is around the corner people are starting to stock up. But you know what I found..... That I can get  my food items that I normally would buy in BJ's cheaper somewhere else.

Yes I was disappointed. I knew that Bj's would give me more bank for my buck but really it doesn't. It's about the same prices that I would spend in other places and the boxes on the items I use to buy   are much smaller then they use to be. So I figure that when I do decide to use my gift certificate I will only be buying the things I really need. Since most of the stuff I would normally buy there I can get cheaper elsewhere. Plus their bakery department is not as good looking as it use to be.  Oh BJ's you disappoint me so....
                                                      
                                               So that's my story what do you think?

Worried


 Hello all, well here's the a story for the week. I am worried. why you might ask? Because I am getting older and the money part of my life along with the health part is worrying me. First let me talk to you about the money part. I depend on my partners income to live. I have not reached an age of retirement yet so my city pension has not kicked in. If my partner was not in the picture my income would go down quite a bit. So I am trying to find alternative ways to stay cheap and have money to live on without using all my saving. Got any suggestions???

The health part is about the same if my partner is no longer in the picture then I am covered for health insurance for 3 years and then..... I have to find a cheap health insurance company to pay for my medical and prescription drugs which I have a few. So right now I am looking in to all of this besides figuring out what we need to sell off in 2019. I know it's a lot right. So how are you doing today?

                                                              So what do you think?

Change




Hello all, well here's the story for the week. I am not a fan of change. I like things the way they are. I believe "if it's not broke don't fix it". But change must be for one to grow. So here's what I am talking about. I have a personal finance advise. No I don't have money like that. I have a simple 401k plan from my last job. Which I had to take with me when I left my job.. I have been with this guy for a few years he is arrogant,  snobbish in some ways, tells you what your going to do with your money  while telling you the rules. He is cheap but smart. You either like him or dislike him when you meet him.  The bottom line if you look past his personality he makes you $$ and that's the good part about him. 

I got a  phone call from this women yesterday saying that she will be replacing him  come 2019. I said who are you and why are you replacing my finance guy. She told me he is retiring. Ok, I know the guy is like 80 he's not in good health but.... who are you lady to touch my $$ I don't know you.

Change I am not feeling it. 

The something happen when Capital On Investing  telling people that they are sending their investment accounts over to E trade because they are no longer doing investments. Who is E trade???  Where is my money with you going again???

Change I am not feeling it

So that's my story changes Not feeling it What do you think?

Crazy


Hello all I wanted to show you this. Somebody is selling a coffin at their garage sale. All I can say is really?? I did not take this picture and I am not sure where this is but Really??? Who would buy a coffin at a yardsale? Why would you have one in your place of residence in the first place? If I was at this yard sale it would creep me out so I would leave. But first being noisy I would ask the owner so where did you get this lovely coffin from. People will sell the darnest things at yard sales but this is even to much for me.

                                                            So tell me what do you think??

New Bill



Hello all how is Everybody Today?  well here's the new bill trick that New York is doing. Well they have been pushing this for a while but here it is. As you can see from the picture there are two pipes that go into the homes in New York the Water line and Sewer line. Now if the water or the sewer line breaks then the city is saying that  they will not repair it.(  Mind you we are already paying for these lines in our bi monthly water bills). It's on you but they do have an insurance company that will come and fix it for a cost. The insurance will cost about $ 25 dollars a month that will cover both pipes if they break. If it's not one cost it's another when it comes to living in Expensive New York. 

With this insurance it will cost you nothing for the company to repair it without the insurance it could cost you anywhere from $5000 to $12000 to get the pipes dug up and repaired. You know I have to bite the bullet and get the insurance. The lesser of the two evils

Now on to my window problems. People just don't want to work. My window man has been stringing me along for months about getting my windows replaced. Hello Home Depot maybe they will get my windows done without the stringing.
Home repairs and bills suck!
 So what do you think?
