Challenges


                                                       Hello Family How Are you today?

Being what the situation is which is staying at home until.. Who knows when. We are faced with some pretty tough challenges ahead of us. For me  that the places I normally order from  are closed. ( which I don't do to often) and with my partner not cooking as much as they use to the job now  is mine or we don't eat) Not sure if that's a good thing or not. I have challenged myself to learn how to reuse what I have to make leftovers. I have come to realize  that what I  was running away from  away from which was cooking is not to bad if you plan your meals and make them last for a least 2-3 days. Which I am working on doing. I will confess I am not the best cook, Heck I am not even ok but we can eat it and be thankful for it.. 

For April I am still doing the Dollar A Day Challenge. Which will require thinking outside of the box because most of the things I do to make my dollar a day is not available right now. So I have to think of ways to make my dollar. I am already selling stuff on line. which that's a challenge within itself to try and go to the post office with this social distancing in place. I am sure you my family have some ideas on how we can still do our challenges even though we are limited in our movements.

If you have any money making  while we are at home ideas. Please share them right here with the rest of us. Would love to know about them.

Don't Be

                                                                      


 Hello Family. Please  Please don't be like this a crazy panic shopper. With all the talk of the Virus going around and people getting crazy cleaning out the grocery stores and yes they are even fighting now. Don't be like the crazy crowd be different think about others in this crazy time that we are living in. Share what you have with the elderly who might not be able to face the crowds and the crazies at the supermarket. Remember when you panic shop you are spending way to much for things that you might not even use. Be careful, safe and stay true to your frugal/Chesapeake  self.

Lazy

                                                                Hello Family..

Don't!! let being lazy cost you money like it did me. I was lazy when it came to eating/cooking at home. So I ended up spending $176 just in eating out for the month of February. Now think about this if I would have shopped and cooked at home it would have cost me half of what I spent and I probably would have had left overs. Don't be like me Lazy when it comes to simple task like cooking to save money!!!

Coronavirus: Aussie shoppers 'panic buying' toilet paper | Nine News Aus...

                 

                                                                    Hello Family..

 I know that a lot of people are panic shopping because of this Virus thing going around. But to fight over toilet paper is to much even for a cheapskate like me. So tell me what are you doing to stock up  for the Just in Case  I have to stay home for a couple of weeks.

I read somewhere that if you can't afford to stock up all at once  take $5 out of your budget and try and buy things  that you might need on sale. Stock your pantries slowly and only buy stuff that you know your really gong to use and need. Why waste money on the craziness of buying stuff because your have fallen in to the panic mode like the rest of the world.

How Much!!


Hello Family How Are you today?

 I am a cheapskate but I still will spend on stuff I like.  Girl Scout cookies being one of them. But when I found out the cookies went from $3.50  a box to $5 a box and the size had gotten smaller  that was my que to  bail out on buying the cookies.  
When you find something that you like and the quality has gone down but the  price has went up. Why still stay devoted to that item? I have found  Walmart makes about the same type of cookies that Girls Scouts produce for about $1.25 a package ( thin mints). Now that's about my price range.

Also with all of this talk about this deadly virus going around  and that we might have to stay at home for weeks. What are you doing being a frugal /cheapskate when it comes to stockpiling? In general what I do  first is  make a list of the things that I really really need. Then with my list I go hunting for the sale of that item. Because if you purchase something and don't use it  that's a waste of money to me. What do you think?  Before you go out and buy in a rush to beat others to it or in a panic. Do a check list, check your sales and especially set a budget. No since wasting money on stuff you think you might need and really don't!

Make A List

                                                        Hello Family how are you today?

 Let's talk about making a list. Do you have a " Master  Financial list for your partner/family?
 Years ago  I typed up a master list of all of our financial accounts with the institutions name phone numbers and account numbers and the value in each.   It occurred to me recently that I hadn't update this list in a while.  So I did the updates and while I was doing that I also made a list of all the housing information along with insurance information. This list consisted of who to contact if there is a problem that needed to be fixed in the house. The information for the house insurance company. the amount of property and other taxes that is associated with the house. Also there was a list of all the  insurance coverage we have be it life insurance/home/auto/health &  who to  contact and how much we are covered for.

Making these kind of list are good in two ways if something was to happen  to you your partner would not be in the dark about certain things. Also if you happen to forget certain things yourself you can always refer to the list you have made.

I have also made a book that contains information  for myself on a personal note for things like how much my social security will be when I collect it, The amount of pensions I should receive when I   collect. The cost of my medication etc. I call this my retirement book. Information I need for when I get to 62 and older. Making lists helps. So when are you starting your list?

Gift Cards

                                                                   Hello Family...

Happy Weekend. Just wanted to share something with you today. I was watching a news program about gift cards. They were saying  a lot of people received gift cards for the holidays this year. They  stated  remember to use your gift card wisely. Buy the things that are really need. Ok, you can buy some fun stuff to but.. The most important thing is  make sure you use your gift card because a lot of stores that offer gift cards are now going out of business.

It would be a shame to waste somebody's money that they spend  on you for the gift card and the store they spend it for closed down. If a store closes and you have a gift card for that store you lose. I had that happen to a friend of mine. He had gift certificates in the amounts of $200, $100, $50 ( this was before gift cards) for Macy's that he had kept for over 20 years. Thank god Macy's was still standing when we went to use them. Even then Macy's gave us a hard time about using them because they were so old.  What would have happen if Macy's was closed down.  We would have been out $350. That's a heck of a lot of money to lose.

So if you have gift cards make sure you use them because with the way retail stores are going these days you might lose them.

Challenges

                                                              Hello My Family
Happy 2020.  This is a new year with new Challenges. Have you started your money challenges yet? I am keeping my dollar a day challenge now it's 2 dollars a day. I am using coupons to see how  much I can save in this big old  expensive city called New York. There are so many challenges that you can do this year that's not just about money. Here's a few.

                                             1. Cooking from scratch challenge. If you like to cook why not try making some of your food from scratch and challenge yourself to get better at it as you make different things.

                                             2. Getting rid of stuff. Challenge yourself to take one room that you really dislike and change it. Get rid of all the stuff in  that room and  make it the room you really want. I am doing that now with my doll room.

                                            3. Be nice. Sometimes we just have no patience with people and situations. Challenge yourself to try and be a better person this year. Be nice  and have a little bit more patience with things and situations.

                                              4 Reach out. Challenge yourself to pick up the phone and reach out to others that you have not heard from in a while (old friends, family co-workers) . I know sometimes it's hard picking up the phone to call.

                                              5 .Take one day at a time. Challenge yourself to take one day at a time to do your challenge. You will fall but get back up dust yourself off and get to challenging.
