No Plastic


Hello all where to start?   First I read where my Con Edison bill will be going up to about $20 extra this year. It sucks living in New York. I really live in the suburb's but it's all the same the prices of living in New York has gotten out of hand. I am paying $260 a month now for Con Edison which includes my Light & Gas but now I will be paying $270 and I am on a level billing plan. Is that crazy or what. What if I was on a fixed income I would be driving  myself crazy trying to find that extra $20 in my budget.

No plastic bags what is this! Come March 1th  2020 they are not giving out plastic bags in my grocery stores anymore. What no plastic what am I going to do when I buy groceries. The cashier told me bring my own bag. Now I have to make sure to bring bags with me everywhere. Really!

                                                            That's my story what do you think?

Really Tough!



Hello all happy new year. Well here's the story for the new year so far. One of my new years goals is to get rid of two cars that I have sitting in my driveway. I called a few places like charities and they have to get back to me. So I call a dealership to talk about a trade in. He said that I should be careful about donating my car to charities because he has hear of horror stories regarding them and your donated car. I also went to my insurance man about how I could get rid of my cars. He says donate them. I went to the junk man and he tells me that he would take them. If I bring in my car I get $100 bucks for it if they have to come get it I get $50.

Why is it so hard to get rid of old cars nowadays? One car I will be trading in for a new one because it has low mileage. The other one is still up in the air. I might find a field and throw some  gasoline on  the older car  and burn it up. That's one way of getting rid of a car. Just kidding.

On another note thinking about getting a job for the Census for 2020. Hey they are paying about 20 bucks an hours. Works for me. So that's my story what do you think?

Really TV




 Hello all Happy 2020. Here's the story for the week. My $1400 TV that I purchased 3 years ago is now broke. Yes I said broke. The volume on the Tv is not working. So now I have to call a repair man and my partner says that it will cost about $100 just for him to walk into the front door. Really!!!
I have had Tv sets that was over 20 years old still working. This only shows you that they are making junk and selling it for a high price.

Just like the refrigerator that I told you about that  broke after 4 years of usage. Besides that it's pouring with things that have to be addressed this year and it's only 4 days into the new year. I have to deal with a health issue beside trying to get rid of stuff like old cars and junk that's been laying around this house forever. A lot of stuff to deal with in 2020 .

Hope that your first 4 days of the new year is better then mind. So what do you think?

So Much Paper


Hello all well here's the story so far. So much paper. Do you realize that for 1 year you get so much paper sent to you it's to much. Between the bank statements, advertisement, bills, misc. stuff  it's a lot of paper. This year I am getting rid of all of my paper that's not important. I make it a habit to shred my old papers for the new year. So that way I cam have a fresh start.

Thank god for my partners insurance plans for the ending of the year I get a lot of testing done and they are expensive. If it wasn't for his insurance plan I would be screwed. You must have good insurance that's a must a  word to the wise from me.

Thinking about getting a part-time job for 2020. either that or try and make $100-200 extra a month doing mystery shopping, selling on line etc. Thinking about what my next move as far as making money will be.

                                                 Well that's my story what do you think?

Holidays

 Hello all well here's the story for the week. I got nothing really. My handyman called and told me that  my window for my rental's bathroom will be in by the first of the year. So nothing will get done until then. Just great hoping to have been finished by Christmas. Since Christmas is in a week and a half I have to get my tree which will be a poinsettia. Last time I seen a real tree was when I went to the store a couple of weeks ago. I stop putting up trees a along time ago. I like my red plant better. They last loner. I still have my poinsettia from last year and yes it's real. No plastic for me.

Nothing special this week which is a good thing for me. So that's my story what do you think?

That Much!!!

Hello all ...

Well here's the weeks' story. I need a new window for my bathroom . Since the bathroom window is old and it's stuck.  I asked my handyman to get a bathroom window to replaced the old one. He told me  with labor and a frosted window it would cost $600.  I said really???
He told me windows are not cheap. I knew I should have gotten the window when I had all the new windows put in the first time a couple of years ago. But my neighbor who is crazy was putting up a fight because I had to use her driveway to put the window in. Since my bathroom window faces her driveway. I didn't want to argue with a crazy women so I gave up. That was my mistake now it's costing me more. If I had done it the first time the bathroom window would have only cost me $250 and that's with labor.

My dumb mistakes cost me everytime.

That's my story what do you think?
