Plotting and Planning

Back in December, I was kind of complaining on this blog about my nephew wanting to rent a house in West Sacramento.  I was telling my brother before he does that he must pay off his debt regardless if he thinks that he lives in a ghetto neighborhood. I visited my nephew’s one bedroom apartment and I didn’t feel unsafe. My nephew is 26 years old, he has a college degree but he does have college debt, however, the debt is manageable and he could have knocked out the debt within a couple of years.  It is so important for our children to stumble and find their way without any interference from us.  My mom used to always say “You made your bed and now you must lie in it” meaning she wasn’t coming to our rescue, we had to figure out what we was going to do.

With the CoronaVirus pandemic raging keep your money close to you and spend it only on necessities.  If your child’s birthday or grandchild or niece or godchild’s upcoming birthday, it’s now time to scale back.  The economy is on shaky grounds and you may think that just because you have been with a company for 15 years that you won’t be let go…they will let you go and hire a younger more cheaper employee. Scale back, you can always in July give a bigger, better gift when things settle a bit.

I am so grateful that I have a stockpile of cleaning wipes, cleaning products, hand soaps, toilet paper and paper towels through couponing. I could have never imagined how handy my stockpile would be.

On Sunday, we will be getting (1) Smart Source and (2) Retail Me Not coupon inserts in the newspapers.

I did stop by CVS, this week, for the BIG Money Maker Futuro Sport Wrist Support, however, the the Futuro Sport Wrist Support was $8.49 at my store but it was still a $18.02 Money Maker for me!!!

If you didn’t stop by CVS then go to your CVS account and print or send to card, your CVS coupons.

It’s Saturday and try to enjoy your day the best that you can because if you are in Southern California, the temperature will drop and it’s going to be rainy all next week.

    Yes the stockpile is so incredibly important and useful now. I think I would have gone without meals if it weren’t for the oatmeal and frozen vegetables I was stockpiling from the zip advantage. And to make matters worse the power went out for us in my neighborhood last night- a transformer blew and we are waiting for it to be fixed. So not only do we have to stay home but stay home without power.

      OMG, I am keeping my fingers crossed that you power returns quickly today. I remember last month when our power and water was off for almost the whole day because the city workers.
