Sunday: I made a birthday card for one of my supervisors:
I also finished up a mini pocket letter to send out as happy mail:
The Kashi I had a cartwheel for, as I did for the Rolaids, the flavor of Target brand antacids I have right now is getting sad, so I wanted to try something different. I've been seeing people haul these magnetic bookmarks on Youtube, so I was really happy my store had them. The Unreal candy is basically M&Ms, as far as I can tell, the bags were $0.48 each, so I bought 3 for my friends and one for me, I haven't tried them yet. The glitter washi is for a swap, it's hot pink with silver stars. I just loved the sticky notes and I liked the sticker book.
I was originally going to get mugs for my friends because I found them at a sale last weekend, but then decided one of them didn't really fit my friend's personality and I was still short one, so when I saw these tumblers at Dollar Tree I picked them up, I had another one at home I'm using. I have like six pairs of scissors but I'm always losing them. I found a pair at Tuesday Morning last week for $1.99 and I almost picked it up, but my friend says she just gets hers at Dollar Tree, sadly I wanted a better pair than I found. I'm always picking up cute duct tape, as I was putting it away later I found my tape drawers are full, so I need to stop doing that. The Snickers hazelnut was for me, the Snickers almond, I put in my treat bags. The bags are to put the tumblers in, I've put all my other stuff in the tumblers (I decided not to personalize), so I just need to decorate the bags and put the tumblers in the bags. I was rather excited my Dollar Tree has these plastic ice cubes.
I use the placemats on my desk when I'm crafting, the pens are for me (cause I can't pass up gel pens), I want to make a flip book with these wall stickers, I thought the heart stickers were cute and I have a swap of a summer flip book, so I picked up the other stickers. The cookbook is for me, I don't really know why I picked it up. The buttons and sequins are for a swap.
When I got home I had a swap in the mail:
Tuesday: I don't remember doing much, I think I just watched movies, which is good cause I had a ton checked out. I worked Tuesday night.
Wednesday: I opened at the library, as I was leaving I saw this rock:
I finally decided to open my loaded bag swap:
I also opened another piece of happy mail:
She also sent me this:
Thursday: I made a pocket letter and mailed out some packages and went to work.
Friday: No sales in my area. I worked extra in May and got paid for that, but apparently I should have just asked for money for my birthday. I didn't even spend that much money between the 15th and the end of the month, but I do have three bills in there. Most of my money goes to postage and food. I wish food was cheaper, if I want interesting food, it's expensive. If I buy the cheap food, it's boring. I also usually get $20 out on my weekly shopping trip and try using that on some purchases so I don't have to spend out of my checking account. I only spent $30 on my shopping trip at the beginning of the week.
Why is it, when I think I'm doing well with money, I'm really not?
Tomorrow, I'm planning to check out the farmer's market because we're having a family get-together that afternoon.
