What did I do/buy this holiday weekend? (January 13-15, 2018)

Hey everybody! My weekend was pretty quiet, but my Monday was pretty sweet! Come see what I did this holiday weekend! πŸ˜€

Well on Saturday, I just stayed home all day and hung out. LOCMom was busy and I was not, so I just relaxed all day. No money spent.

On Sunday, it was another quiet day! Except LOCMom and I went to feed the birds! Oh my god, there were sooooooo many pigeons there, haha. πŸ˜› I threw out the bird seed in a big huge pile and they literally devoured it all… And they were still hungry! Piggies. πŸ™‚ I also fed the ducks and geese by the water and they seemed happy to have some yummy birdseed. I even got a big graylander goose to eat out of my hand! These geese usually just back away from me when I try to feed them, but this goose was willing to risk eating out of my hand. πŸ™‚ No pictures, too busy feeding the geese. πŸ™‚

After that, I went home and relaxed all day.

And on Monday, Goodwill was having their 50% off sale! Since LOCFriendT was open to thrifting and liked sales, we decided to go thrifting together at Goodwill today! We first tried on clothes and we didn’t find a lot of clothes that fit us, but LOCFriendT found a wonderful pair of Maurices jeans and a sweater dress, both 3 and 4 bucks each! Making her total $7.00 for everything because it was 50% off day! Not a bad haul, I must say! πŸ™‚ She really liked her clothes, so I was happy for her. As for me, I only found one shirt and it was just $3.00! I tried on some pants too, but it turned out I had grabbed the wrong sizes in the size 14 pant section because somebody was “hiding” their pants they wanted in the size 14 section so they could get them later. Uggh! It’s always a pain to figure out you grabbed the wrong sized pants when you finally get to the dressing room in Goodwill. > _>

But after trying on clothes, since LOCFriendT was new to Goodwill, I decided to show her around the solid goods. We didn’t find anything there, so we went to the check out line afterward and left the store. LOCFriendT was in the mood to do something else, so I decided that we could get a free sample at See’s Candy! But I wanted more than one candy while I was there, so I got a newer flavored truffle and LOCFriendT paidΒ for it for me! Isn’t shawesome? πŸ™‚ It was only a buck and I liked it a lot. ❀ The funny thing was that the cherry flavor in it tasted like cough syrup, but it was still good. πŸ˜›

After that, LOCFriendT dropped me off at my house and she went home. A very good shopping day with a very wonderful friend if I do say so myself! πŸ™‚

Here is the shirt I bought!

Isn’t it cute? πŸ™‚ It was the only shirt that looked good on me that I picked out at Goodwill. Oh well. πŸ˜›

But after being home for a few hours, LOCMom and I decided to go to Costco! While I was there, I got my bulk foods and I said to LOCFriendT today that I was trying to watch what I ate because of my diet, but I decided to splurge on the Costco food court food and got a chicken wrap!


Yes, that thing was huge AND I ATE IT ALL. Oh man, it was delicious though. I haven’t eaten for the rest of the night after getting home though because it was such a calorie bomb. If I do eat out, it’s going to be Costco food most of the time, no questions asked. πŸ™‚

Then I went to Frugalpants Grocery Store, or Winco, and returned this charcoal facial scrub that was around 7 bucks. Ya’ll, this stuff literally burned my face and it didn’t even get all of the gunk out of my pores! No product is perfect, I know, but the fires of Hell should not be burning on my face after using a facial scrub. I then went to the produce section and stocked up on some healthy food and then left the store. Forgot to buy new facial scrub while I was in there, so I guess I’ll have to stop at the SpendypantsΒ Grocery Store, or Holiday, and pick some up. Meh! Dx

After everything, I went home and relaxed for the rest of the night. πŸ™‚

Whew! A lot of spending today, but I was very happy about how the day went! πŸ™‚

I have also been trying an experiment this month. The experiment I have been doing is only using my debit card to pay for things. And so far it has been working out quite well! Going cashless I find is helping my bank account stay full! And I love it! I can get used to a future where no one has cash and everything is paid for on your smartphone or on a plastic card. πŸ™‚ I know this situation doesn’t work for yard sales and stuff, but I love it! πŸ˜€

How was your weekend? πŸ™‚Β

  1. I love that sweater! It’s so pretty and I’ve really been into gray lately. I make my own facial scrub. There are lots of recipes online and it’s pretty easy to do. Also you can control what you put on your face. I have sensitive skin too! That chicken wrap looks yummy too. What’s in it? We don’t have a Costco here. 😒


    1. Wow! I’ll have to check out some of these facial scrub recipes online then! πŸ˜€

      The chicken wrap has cheese, white meat chicken, and ranch dressing in it all wrapped in bread. πŸ™‚ It was only $2.99 at Costco and it was very good! If you ever go to a Costco, definitely check out their food court! Great food for low prices. πŸ™‚
