Hi, everybody! I am SO SORRY there was no blog post last week. 😥 My mental illness symptoms and some depression vibes just hit me like a truck last week and I did not feel like writing anything. 😦 But I feel great today, so I can totally write now! 😀
So a few of you know this already and I have not announced it as of yet, but I do have a Facebook page for my blog. A few of my awesome readers have found it seems, so I wanted to make an announcement about it. 🙂
My Living on Cents Facebook page is not entirely set up yet however. It’s been like that for a while… I do have plans to update it, but I have been lazy… for a long time now. Dx I was going to announce it once I had it all set up, but I just decided to announce it now to everyone. 🙂
I would like to link my Facebook page onto my blog, but with this free website blog designed webpage, if I did that, it would feature broken links to Twitter, Instragram, ect. as well. Not very professional. : / So I have yet to have done any social media stuff with my blog until now because of that. : /
But if anyone else would like to follow my Facebook page for Living on Cents, I will link it below! Be sure to follow it because I do post my new blog updates onto it immediately usually. 🙂 Once more though, it is still under construction, but I do post updates there constantly so no one misses a thing! 😀
What did I do this Weekend?
So let’s get started with what I did this weekend! Come and see what I did!
On Saturday, the local library had my books I put on hold ready to be picked up! So LOCMom drove me over there to pick up my books! Now that I live in an area where the library has all of the manga books I’ve been wanting to read, there is no need to buy them anymore! 😀 WINNING! * O*
And when I got home, I saw a moving truck by my apartment. And ya’ll know that means. Regardless if someone is moving in or moving out, the people from said apartment will be throwing out perfectly good stuff by the nearest dumpster by their moving truck. Which happens to be the one by my apartment! 😀
So I scuttled over there as quickly as I could and sure enough, there was “treasure”! ^ o^
And yes, I am a proud dumpster diver, but the most polite, cleanest, courtesy, and kind dumpster diver you will ever meet. ;D You can basically say that I leave the dumpster area cleaner than I found it. 🙂 Now I do not HOP INTO dumpsters, I just kind of “skim” the top of them. 😛 Around my apartment’s dumpsters, you would not believe what people throw away. 😦 For all of the perfectly usable stuff I find in the dumpsters that I do not want, I take it all to one of our local thrift stores and drop the stuff off there. Give it a new home, y’know? 😀
As for the stuff I do find that I want to keep, it is taken into my apartment, sterilized, and is gratefully used! 😀
Check out some of the finds I found this weekend!
After finding stuff by the dumpster, I settled in and watched Dr. Reverend William J. Barber, II talk to an audience that is part of a movement call the Poor People’s Campaign: A National Call for Moral Revival. I am always missing their live videos of their events on Facebook, but I managed to catch this one and WOW! Dr. Reverend Barber really laid down what all of us like myself who have been stepped on and are STILL being stepped on by the rich and other corrupt leaders in our country, whether they be democrat or republican, have been thinking this whole time! It was really nice to be able to hear someone reaffirm that people like me are not crazy, but know the truth.
I’m not going to get to into the things the Reverend talked about here, but I will provide two links below to the Poor People’s Campaign Facebook page and a page on their website about their campaign if anyone wishes to learn more about thier campaign. 🙂 Spoiler Alert: Martin Luther King started the campaign a long time ago. 😀
On Sunday, LOCMom and I went to the mall in a town next to Folsom! My $10 off anything Christopher & Banks coupon was expiring that day and you betcha’ I wasn’t going to waste it! 🙂 Couldn’t really find anything in Christopher & Banks that I wanted, so I bought LOCMom some reading glasses/sun glasses with my coupon. The glasses were I think $12.99, but with the $10 off coupon, they were around $3.50. 🙂 LOCMom liked them a lot! LOCMom also bought me a pink blanket for my bed from Macy’s clearence section that I have been wanting because it is getting colder at night in Folsom. Love it so far! 😀
At home, LOCMom and I made chicken enchiladas as well! Ergo, they could have used more cheese, but we only had so much of it. ;'( But still, they were quite tasty!
So that is it for this weekend! Hoping to have a fun weekend next weekend as well! 😀
One More Announcement!
One more small announcement everyone! Next month, since my finances will be back in order, my weekend spending + monthly budget check-ins will be returning next month! So please look forward to them! 😀
How was your weekend?
