Ok so I’m focusing on some positive, happy things here to get through the week filled with stress, a deadline, PMS, clutter and arguments…here is the first thing:
My house plant is flowering!
I got a email message from a points card that I use at a grocery and drug store: 60,000 points!
I filled out a survey for this company, and it was well worth it if you ask me. The last time I filled out a similar survey, sometime earlier in the year, I made a hundred bucks on that points card. But I’ll take the 60 bucks.
$60 of ‘free’ money is a good thing when you have a hungry teenager… 🙂
Do you use points cards? I have a love/hate relationship with them because if I happen to not have a particular card on me when I shop, it causes me a little bit of stress.
I’m missing out on some potential savings! I chide myself. Why didn’t I carry that card with me today?
The good news is I’m a bit of a creature of habit and usually do most of the shopping in the same stores. So I carry those cards, usually two specific ones, on me at all times.
The other way I earn points is through my bank debit card which is my primary source of payment. Click, says the machine and I have points earned. According to the last email message I can go eat at some chain restaurant for a $20 reduction on my bill, or I can go see a movie on the house.
Maybe I should go to the movies… I haven’t been in a long while. What should I go see?
So there you go. A post without
crying freaking out woe is me-ing complaining. It’s almost Friday…
Anyway I gotta go feed people and take a kid to some practice. See you tomorrow.
