What did I do/buy this weekend and on Monday? (January 20-22, 2018)

Hello, everybody! I’m expanding this Weekend Update to this Monday because I didn’t do much this weekend… : ( But anyway, come see what I did these past three days! ๐Ÿ˜€

Saturday was a pretty lazy day, so I did not do much. No spending log for this day I’m afraid.

Money Spent on Saturday

Total Amount Spent: $0.00

Sunday, however was much more interesting! It was a shopping day and I wanted to hit up my local Dollar Tree for some stuff I needed and whew, did I buy a lot. It’s amazing what 1 buck after 1 buck totals up to… O _O

Here is part of my Dollar Tree haul!

dt haul

The only thing not in this haul are my 3 bags of glass gems, or my new Mancala beads, and a HUGE Crunch bar. Those items are currently down stairs in the closet and in the pantry. ๐Ÿ˜‰

Anyway, as you can see, in my haul, you will notice that I have a lot of fun little games. Well, these items are Operation Christmas Child items, or OCC items, that I buy $5.00’s worth of each month for OCC boxes. Stuff tends to pile up after a while if you buy items in small bulk like this each month. Therefore, more OCC boxes get filled up quicker. ๐Ÿ™‚ I also bought some Valentine’s Day cards and Valentine’s Day stickers for the Valentine’s Day cards I will be sending out to all of my friends and family. ๐Ÿ™‚ Fun times! Also, those file dividers are for my new binder that I purchased at Goodwill for 69 cents to keep track of my monthly checking. So far, the binder looksย great! ๐Ÿ™‚ And that little role of washi tape was for me. I can’t help it, I love buying cute washi tape. D:

After Dollar Tree, I went to the Spendypants Thrift Store and looked in the kitchen section for a teflon saucepan for LOCMom. She wants a bigger one than the one she has now and so far, no luck in finding one locally in thrift stores around town. : ( Booooooooo. I also saw some cute circular mini trash cans that I was looking for to “upgrade” my white plastic Dollar Tree ones at home, but they wanted 3 bucks for each trashcan. Ughhh, no thanks. > _> I recently bought a newย trash can at Goodwill for my bathroom for $1.19, so I will just keep checking back at Goodwill and yes, the Spendypants Thrift Store as well for newish small trashcans that are fancier than my current Dollar Tree ones. But whileย I was there, I bought a really strong bookend to replace the one I have at home and I really like it so far! ^_^ It will go on one of my bookshelves when my turtle bookend becomes too bulky for the shelve it is on. ๐Ÿ™‚

Then after the Spendypants Thrift Store, I went home and relaxed all day. ๐Ÿ™‚

Money Spent on Sunday

  • OCC items – $5.00
  • Folder Dividers – $2.00

  • Bookend – $2.15

On Monday, I went shopping again! This time, at Goodwill, haha. ๐Ÿ™‚ Man I love that store. ๐Ÿ˜› But I was on a mission to find two trash cans to replace my other ones at home and unfortunately, I didn’t find any trashcans I liked. In other words, they only had two ugly ones. : ( But what was lulzy about one of the trashcans was that its original price was $44.99. $44.99! It must have been a designer trashcan in its old life because it was all marked up on the outside of it when I cam across it. I do not want a sloppy looking trashcan, haha. ๐Ÿ™‚ But I did manage to find to some cool small glasses to replace the other four I have at home!

Check em’ out!


They even stack on each other! ๐Ÿ˜€

Pretty cool, huh? If you look reeeeaaaalllly, closely in the background, you will be able to see LOCKitty Amelia. ๐Ÿ™‚

After Goodwill, I then went to Costco because LOCMom needed some stuff there and I noticed in the parking lot that somebody had my favorite toilet paper ever in their basket: Charmin! I knew when I went into Costco that I had to buy some for the next few months anyway, so I took full advantage of it! After checking out though, I was VERY GOOD and didn’t buy anything at the snack bar. I usually buy something at the snack bar at Costco whenever I am there, but I have to not eat so much junk since I want to stay true to my healthy eating ways, so I did not get any food. Go me! ๐Ÿ™‚

Here is the Charmin I bought!


Got lucky there! Costco hardly stocks this stuff besides Quilted Northern, so you gotta’ buy it when you see it!

After Costco, I went home and will be relaxing all day. ๐Ÿ™‚

Money Spent on Monday

  • Small Glass Cups (8) – $5.52
  • Charmin Toilet Paper – $18.22

Total Amount Spent: $23.74

So all and all, a good three days! Hoping this week goes smoothly! ๐Ÿ˜€

How was your weekend?
