A 12 pack of Diet Coke (woo hoo!). I get the points, the free diet coke and the CRV value at the recycling center.
Also found a pair of panty hose (black ones that fit!), dandruff shampoo, tweezer w/light (I guess to tweeze at night? WTF?), 1 package of bounce sheets, new makeup in container and 1 bottle of water.
Every single time I run out of something I usually find it. When you live your life in the flow – things will flow to you. I hear so many people air their frustrations about the economy. I feel their pain, but there is one big difference between myself and them, credit card debt.
I’ve not had credit card debt in over 20 years and don’t intend on getting into it again. If I can’t afford I don’t buy it or I usually find it. I wish I would have found dumpster diving 20 years ago. What a difference to my bottom line would I have had.
But now, if I dine out at a fast food joint, I use a coupon. I rarely dine out at a resturant. I’m a good tipper and if I can’t afford to tip decent I don’t dine out. I mostly cook at home.
I’m modest in dress and surroundings. In the winter I wear jeans and nice shirts. I have a few dresses I wear on special occasions. I also sew so if I need something, I can find some cheap fabric and make it.
I have 3 pair of jeans I bought at Wal-Mart for $5 each. In the summer I wear capris and flip flops and do my own pedicures. Saves money. I also do my own hair and even cut my own hair. (Only a trim). I find that keeping my hair long is actually easier to take care off. If I don’t want to blow dry it, I put it up in a bun.
