Hello everybody! I once again apologize for not saving my receipts again. I have been really bad about that, I know. THIS WEEKEND THOUGH, I will save ALL OF THEM, dang it! Anyway, did a lot of fun stuff this weekend! Come and see what I did!
On Saturday, LOCMom saw in an ad somewhere that a local spay and neuter group was holding their storage locker sale again and as someone who likes to look through junk for good stuff, I couldn’t miss it! Well, I got there and didn’t find anything unfortunately. 😦 But thinking back, I am kicking myself for not buying a wrapping paper storage bucket that had a handle on it. Mine at home doesn’t have a handle on it I recently found out, so I am so regretful. 😥 Oh well…
Then in the same place (Palo Cedro, CA), I went in a kitty rescue thrift store where I bought a bunch of brand new headbands for 5 cents each since the store was having a sale or something. Those hats will be going to Operation Christmas Child for all the kids. 🙂 I also recently used a 10 bucks off of 10 dollars coupon from JC Penney to buy a bag of gloves that were ringing up for 40 cents each on clearance and because I bought 10 dollars worth with the coupon, they were all FREE! SCOOOOOOOOORE! I felt like one of those extreme couponers at the grocery store using all of their coupons. 😛 Made it out of there like a bandit you could say! 😀
After shopping, LOCCousinS came over and tried to fix our bathroom door that keeps locking us in every time we close it. He couldn’t figure out how to fix it, but he said he was still going to bring over a part for the lock part of the door to try and see if that will work. I don’t know what we’re going to do if he can’t fix it guys… *shrugs* 😦
In the evening, LOCMom made soup and I had a little bit of it since I ate a bunch of protein that day.
Pretty tasty! 😀
Then after everything, I relaxed all night! 🙂
On Sunday, LOCMom and I went shopping! LOCMom wanted to go to her favorite antique store, so we went there and everything I liked was like 845893579584 dollars. 😦 Guys, some things in antiques are not antiques, I must tell you now. Some of the stuff they sell are from super ritzy companies that charges a lot for their stuff like clothing, soaps, and delicately made chicken figurines. All from Europe, btw. So yeah, for a lack of better words, my broke ass can’t afford that nice kind of stuff. 😦 But hey, at least I have good taste in stuff! At least, I think so. 😉
Then after the antique store, I went to the mall and got my free sample of See’s Candy and then I went to American Eagle to try on some of their pants. And AT LAST! I can squeeze into their size 14’s! But it was bitter sweet because all of stuff was soooooooooo expensive. I’m too smart to pay 34 bucks for a thin sweater just to wear the American Eagle brand. Or even 30 bucks for a pair of their jeans. Thrift stores have spoiled me, haha. 🙂 Someday, I will luck out and find the perfect pair of jeans or shirt from American Eagle at a thrift store and it will all fit me perfectly, darn it! I can wait for that day though, haha. 😉
And last night, I purchased a new minimalism book that is called, ‘Goodbye Things’. It’s about a Japanese man who got rid of all of his stuff once he realized he discovered that his stuff was making his life miserable. Btw, this guy is an extreme minimalist though. He keeps like all of his rooms empty in his apartment and even got rid of his Tempurpedic mattress. I mean, he could gave it to me! D: /jokingjoking 😛 But I am at the beginning of his book right now and so far, it is very good. Probably one of the better minimalism books I have read on the subject most recently. A lot of stuff he talsk about I already know since I am about as minimalist as you can get, but not extreme. And one of the reasons I didn’t get around to posting the Weekend Update on Sunday was because this new book of mine inspired me to declutter and clean! During the evening/night, I was going through everything, putting stuff in the donation pile I didn’t need and all of that. 🙂 FEELS GOOD! 😀
Someday, I may do a blog post about my living space to show everyone how minimally I live. 🙂 And still the laundry piles up! Can’t always keep my minimalist space clean without effort. Constant maintenance is key!
And I couldn’t have a cheat meal on Saturday, so I had one on Sunday. Funnel cakes were on the menu as my cheat meal, but LOCMom didn’t want to eat them with me, so we opted for Chinese food instead. 🙂
MMMMMM… GOOD STUFF! 😀 ❤ Had the leftovers on Monday and it was all so awesome still!
So yup, that was my weekend. 🙂 Also, it rained this weekend, so check out this cool rainbow outside of my house!
Sorry for the reflection of the room in the picture; I tried. 😦 But still, pretty huh? 😀
How was your weekend?
