Hello Family, Here's my confession but let's keep it between us ok. I volunteered Wednesday for We Day. Which is an organization that promotes doing great things for your community and others. This is an event geared toward children which is great. The event took place in New York . They had speakers like Whoopi Goldberg, Chelsea Clinton, Olympic Gold Medalist, The Prime Minster of Canada, you get the idea they had people. I volunteered because it was a good cause and..... I was getting free food breakfast, lunch and dinner plus I was seeing a show for free. I thought I would be getting a gift bag to take home after the event . All for free..
What I got was a breakfast that consisted of a apple, granola bar, coffee or juice and that's it. Lunch was Vegan or a boxed lunch of something wrapped in avocados. I hate avocados. Dinner if you want to call it that was pizza hut. I got a tee shirt for free. Which by the way we had to wear for this event. No gift bags were given to the volunteers. I did see a free show which was ok. Which really the show was about people encouraging our children to make a difference.
When you volunteer do it from your heart and that's what I tried to do. But for me this one was all about what I can get for free. But you know the jokes on me because I spent $40 bucks traveling back and forth to the event and came out with much less that I expected. Hey I didn't even get a feeling of personal satisfaction that ones gets from volunteering with this event. At least if I would have gotten that feeling I would have been a satisfied.

Have you ever got mad at yourself for unnecessary spending. For example I got a speeding ticket a couple years ago. It was my fault thought I was driving in the Indy500. Ticket was $150. Another example I forgot to pay a bill and the next time the bill came in I was charge a late fee. Last one I spend extra money on my cell phone service not knowing that if I asked for the AARP discount it would have cost me much less. These are some of my examples of unnecessary spending what are yours??

Just a little reminder don't forget to save your coins and to roll them when you have a bucket full. I just finished rolling mine and I saved $40 bucks in coins. I now have some $$ to spend for the holidays, put toward my upcoming vacation or go out to a nice meal. What I really plan to do with this money is put it toward my Kellogg stock that I am investing in. You remember I am using coins to invest in stock. Money that you don't really see could go toward something great in your future. Just a thought. Have A Great Cheap Cheetah Day and Save That Money!!!

I miss my podcast show. I was thinking about doing some new shows, but I feel the price on blogtalk is kinda expensive, They are asking $12.99 a month. I am not sure if it's worth it. I mean I love doing my shows but financially it can get pricey. I liked when they offered it for free. You know I am a cheapskate) I am looking into other options . If you have any suggestions please let me know. Now on to
Money Challenges. September 1th is right here and I am looking for a good money challenge. Are you doing any money challenges and if so what are they I might want to join you.
Have A Great Cheap Cheetah Day!
