This Scares Me..

 Hey Everyone. Well Here's my story for the week. First Happy Memorial Day Weekend! Hope your enjoying yourself and your having fun..... Now to the story last night I was watching videos on the working poor, the vanishing middle class, the unemployed and the homeless. I know you asking why am I watching these kinda videos. Because it's reality and sometimes we forget what that's like. We get so caught up in our own life that we forget the struggles of others. Lets just say I needed a reality check and I got more then that I got scared.

When I watched these video I thought about my situations and how easily a nice life can be taken from you and how we can take our nice lives for granted. If you were caught out there with very little money and an eviction notice what would you do to survive?

Don't get me wrong I have worked all my life and up until 2 years ago I was working but because of certain situations with my job ( you know my story) I had to stop working, but I made sure I had a safety net before I left my job. And as you read my older post I am still looking for part-time jobs or ways to make extra $$. I like money what can I say. I am also  frighten that if I am not financially prepared I to can fall into the trap of the working poor. Or the homeless. It's scary to think about  it but it can be  it's reality if I let it be by not preparing myself  money wise the best way I know how. So what do you think?

Garage Sale Time!!!!

Hey Everyone Here's My Story For The Week- so far. Last weekend I went to a community yard sale and this community was pretty fancy.Meaning  they had the good stuff to sell but it was not cheap. I did luck up on a few bargains which I will be reselling hopefully for a profit. I am trying to make a buck anyway that I can.  I spent way more then I was suppose to ( $150) on stuff but I got a brand new well 2 brand new cameras that does everything. They were never used. I got 30 x box and xbox 360 games, some free stuff, Gi joes , various games and much more. So I will say that spending that kinda money last weekend was well worth it.Now all I have to do is process all this stuff so I can get my money back with a profit added of course. So that 's my story so far what do you think??

A.C Mini Trip $$$$$

                                          Hello Everyone. Here's My Story For The Week......

I call myself taking a mini trip to Atlantic City ( NJ) and also to visit my mother since she also lives in the area. But back to my mini  Atlantic City Trip......
I was offered a 3 night stay at Caesar's Hotel In AC for the great rate of $83 for all three nights. When I got to Caesars I wanted my regular nice room with an ocean view. That was not going to happen. They gave me instead a  room that was dark and dingy and wayyyyyyyyyyy in the back of the hotel.  My view was frosted windows that looked out into the back of the hotel alley that held their air condition system. Did I mention that my room had a dripping noise in the walls that you could hear every hour on the hours. Also the walls were paper thin so I heard my neighbors most of the night. So I not only complained I raised holy Hell and  this is what I got.... for it..........

My room cost me  $25 for all three nights. The hotel  gave me a $58 dollar credit toward my room bill. They also gave me free comped buffet for two that would have cost me $80 bucks and free parking which would have cost me $25. So by complaining I was given $108 in credit. this made my trip not so bad money wise. But the best part of the trip was that I got to spend quality time with my mother and to me that was priceless....

Off My Game

Hello Everyone, Happy Mothers Day! Here's my  story for the week. First I have been doing mystery shops trying to make some extra $$. But I realize that the shops that I use to do when I started  and I was excited about is now boring me to tears. I have made so many mistakes going to the wrong shop location. not getting enough information for the shop, canceling the shop. I am starting to realize if my heart is really into it anymore. Yes I like the little $15 I get for each shop but I don't think it's really worth it. Oh heck I just might need to look for a real part-time job!

Second thing. I am so jealous, My cousin who is always living form paycheck to paycheck is going on all these great trips and I stay home because I am scared to spend $$. And truthfully I don't want to spend a lot of money for vacations. I like my vacations cheap. I somethings think that because I am so cheap I might be missing out on the best part of life and that's just living and being.

Third and last. I got my incomes tax check back. well really my partner did and half is mine. OK, $100 of it is mine. He owes me because he would normally be paying but because I am a dependent on him he now gets money back! He likes that. So the thing is use  what to do with this $100. I could it  for my basic but very small living expenses or put it in my holiday club. What would you do?

Sorry One Last thing..... My gardener had the never to send me a gardening bill for  $950 for  services for the year of 2015. Did I mention that last year I did my own gardens and lawn care  because I fired the Gardner in 2014! He has the nerve to send me a bill for services he did not do. So what do you think I will be doing with this bill.......

                               Well that's my story for this week what do you think?

Hello Everyone. Well this has been my week so far. For the last couple of days New York has been wet and cold. It's been raining everyday this week, I love the rain and it makes me feel lazy and safe but.....
This week I was determined to get off my butt and do my hustle. So I had mystery shops lined up  and other things that would make me money this week.

I also was on the look out for mothers day gifts for my aunt and mother. I found nothing yet. Got any suggestions?

Last week I was in a bit of a funk because I really want to move either to Seattle or Las Vegas. But first I have to clean out the house I'm living in and that's a big project. Which I am taking on one bite at a time because I have a goal in mind.

I also must confess that I have been spending way to much on lottery tickets because I still have the dollar and the dream mentality. If I win, When I win the things I can do with the $$, but the reality is that the only one who is really winning is the lottery organization because of people like me with that dollar and a dream mentality..
                                    So that's my story for the week, what do you think?
