Good Morning Everyone. Well here's the story for the week. Changes and Fed Ex. Let's talk about Fed Ex first. Friday I get a sticky on my door stating that I had a Fed Ex package waiting for me. I was not aware of anyone sending me anything. So I called and they stated that my package would be send to me between 8-10:30 am Monday morning. So like the fool I am I got up at 6:30 in the morning and waited, By 12:00 no fed ex package.  When I called about my package  they could not even tell me who send me the package or when I will get it. Then I got mad! Fed Ex in my book sucks. Long story short I got the package and it was important but damn Fed Ex I had to go through to many changes just to get it.

Changes we only have a couple weeks left until the new Year 2017 and what surprises have I gotten before the new year a new increase in my property taxes. Happy holidays to me!  I got a $170 increase in my tax bill. You see why I need to win the lotto, I need the money for all these stupid increases. Well the bright side of things is that I will be adding money toward me $20 challenge for 2016. I rolled $55 in coins and I did a mystery shop in November for $15.

Yes I am still using my money toward my Kellogg purchase of stock I am just waiting until they send me a new statement to see who I send my checks to now. They changed transfer agents.
So that's my story what do you think???

 Good Morning All, Here's my  story for today. I am a frugal failure. The reason why I say this is that the months of October and November I spend money like I'am Mama WarBucks and I got it like that. That's right I don't think about coupons or discounts or anything related to saving money. I just spend. Perfect example of this is  last month on eating out and groceries I spent $575.00 That is what my charge bill stated. I was shocked and made at myself all at the same time. I have to get it together money wise or I will be in trouble. Since as you know I am not working which means no income for me right now.
I know that December will not be any better spending wise because my cruise is in December and hopefully I will not over spend my budget . I saved $1200 for the 10 day trip. Come Jan 2017 back on the cheapskate/frugal wagon. seriously.... So that's my story what do you think?

Having Fun!

Well Everyone. Here's my story for the week. I went in to my local CVS Pharmacy and saw they had their  Halloween items at 75% off so I got a hat. ( you can  see the sign in the background of the video)You like it. I also was going to get a new pet the rat but I decided against it. I got 3 bags of the good chocolate instead for $1.99 a bag. Like I really need chocolate. Not!!!

Also I made a sale!!!! On e creator (that's my online store) well almost. I had to refund the $$ because the shipping was wrong, but at least I know  they are looking at my e creator store.  My e creator store was build for my $20 dollar challenge.http://coinqueensyardsale.ecrater.com/

Finally got my passport even though they make me look like I have a bead in my picture. I am ok with it as long as I got it before my trip in December I am happy.
Well that's my story for the week short and sweet. Hope you voted today I sure did!

Hello Everyone, well here's the story so far. I got this in the mail today and I got scared. Though they were telling me which is the Unified Court that I had to report for jury duty. I am not feeling Jury Duty right now, Not when I have doctors appointments and I'm planning a trip in 6 weeks. Well with luck I got a questionnaire to answer but you know what happens when I send it in. You guessed it. They will send me a letter to report to Jury duty. Which I will postpone because of  all the things that I need to do in the coming months. I could really use the Jury Duty Money . I think they pay  like $50 bucks a day. I think?

Well that's my story for today. Oh yea can I tell you I love Consumer Cellular the new phone service I am with . I got a bill for $50 bucks called and told them I was suppose to get 45 days free. They explained the reasons I would get 45 days free then they looked at my bill and took $20 bucks off. Now instead of paying $50 bucks for 2 phones with internet  monthly. I will be paying $35 a month for my same services. I love that company. You know the $20 bucks I am saving is going toward my $20 challenge right. That's my story what do you think???
