Nothing Exciting: Just Not Spending

May 25th, 2006 at 08:28 pm

Iím just bopping along in frugal land, racking up the no spend days without effort. I pack lunches, my needs are met, what do I need to spend on? Thatís a good thing, because May was not the best on medical expenses, and June promises some other hits, such as water aerobics, and July in car insurance.

Iíd like to finish May off with maybe a grocery run and thatís it. I think I might have another gas hit to drive 3 hours round trip to Clear Lake, but thatís to see family, and My Guy and I will have a fine time. Heís planning on packing lunches for the drive; so nice to not have to convert someone.

A lot of the free clothes I got are working out very well. Iíve gotten some compliments, and I keep blurting ďIt was free!Ē The nice thing is that a lot of people have responded ďThatís the best-free clothesĒ or ďI love getting hand-me-down from my sisterĒ (mom, etcetera.) Nice to know that my co-workers not only arenít snobby, but think free hand me downs are darned cool. Iím talking up Freecycle a lot.

There's a bill in California that might bump the minimum wage from $6.75 to $7.75. Boy, I'd be rich that that extra $150 plus.
