End of month updates

July 30th, 2007 at 07:40 pm

Some quick updates:
-I made my 12 no spend days for the month!
-I ended up working 20.5 hours of overtime last week
-Yesterday, I bought 4 deoderants, 1 V05 shampoo and 1 conditioner, and 3 Aquafresh toothpastes for 8.33 (or 88 cents each)
-Today, I bought hair products with a gift card to the local pharmacy
-I'm looking for another prescription transfer offer to another pharmacy to get some kind of incentive gift card. Every little bit helps
-I worked 6 hours of overtime today
-I put my car back in the shop because of the check engine light coming back on. Total cost was $135.59.
-My overtime goal for this week is to do 16 hours between now & Thursday. I have vacation time for Friday & Saturday. I plan on using the 4 day weekend as a mini vacation. I'm not going anywhere, but I am going to get some much needed rest.
-I lost another pound this week. I'm down 4.8 lbs so far!

And one random thought---does anybody else get annoyed at those Visa commercials where everyone is paying with their debit card & its going smoothly, then everything grinds to a halt when one guy wants to pay cash? I can't stand those commercials. Which is ironic, because I use my debit card more than cash Smile

    Yes, I admit that commercial annoys me too, and I use my debit card more as well!

    Great job on achieving your goals! You are an inspiration. I hope you reallllllllyyyyy enjoy your 4 day weekend, cause you deserve it!! Smile
    You got some great deals on your products. Target just ran a coupon in their weekend ad for a new or transfer prescription.

    I thought I was the only one who hated those commercials. It really irks me that they try to make you feel guilty for paying with cash. Wow, what a concept! In the good old days, weren't you supposed to feel bad for using a "charge" card? My how things have changed.

    What gets me is that it takes longer to pay with a debit card than it does with cash. Yesterday I was in the quickline at the grocery store behind a debit card lady and it took her forever to do her little routine. Whereas I had my twenty out and ready to hand to the cashier long before my stuff was rung up. Took her about 45 seconds, took me about 20.
