What did I do/buy this weekend? (June 2-3, 2018)

Hey everybody! This weekend was pretty darn fun! Come and see what I did! 😀

Saturday

On Saturday, LOCMom and I went garage saling and at most of the garage sales, I did not find anything, but the first garage sale we went to was a winner! At that garage sale, I managed to buy a picture frame holder for a picture I saved from a trash can in high school in case we didn’t want to hang it on the wall anymore in our new home or for just another photo in general. *shrug emoji* But the real gem was a night stand I found and bought for 10 bucks!

Check it out!

Pardon my messiness, I am kind of in the middle of making my new night stand look prettier, haha. 🙂 The only flaw with it however was the knob for the top drawer was a little lose, so I got some tools and tried my best to get the knob screwed back in place. I… sort of got it back in place, but the knob still turns when you move it a certain way. But it’s way better than it was before now! Guess I’m just going to have to live with it. Imo, 10 bucks ain’t too bad for a pine dresser like this even with a sorta’ faulty knob. 😀

Then, being as it was Saturday, I went out during the evening and had my cheat meal! I was craving some Chipotle since I didn’t want to eat any food that was too greasy and possibly gain weight, so the food at Chipotle hit the spot!

Yes, I ate most of that. 🙂 But alas, I couldn’t finish it all off because it was A LOT of food! O _O;;; After eating as much as I could, I just tossed the leftovers.

After dinner, I relaxed all night basically and read more My Hero Academia! I really want to get caught up with the current manga chapter, but there is no hurry since these series tend to go on forever. *shrug emoji* However, the series is always a very fun read! 😀

Money Spent on Saturday

  • Nightstand – $10.00
  • Wooden Frame Holder – $1.00
  • Chipotle Cheat Meal – $10.00 – $11.00 (lost receipt)

Total Amount Spent: $22.00

Sunday

LOCMom and I first went shopping on Sunday and since I have been wanting a new folding event chair for a birthday present, we went to Sportsman Warehouse and looked at their chairs! Unfortunately, we struck out. 😦 My last two places I want to look now are Wal-Mart and Shopko. We also went to World Market and Bed Bath and Beyond and did a little browsing there.

The last store we visited though was my favorite… Goodwill! I checked all of my usual haunts in the store, but I managed to find some white drawer/shelf matting (see nightstand pic) and a Life Factory water bottle for only 3 bucks! Guys… These Life Factory water bottles go for $20-$25 BRAND NEW and I got mine for 3 bucks… WITH A LID! SCORE! I know, ya’ll are thinking, “EWWW, a used water bottle! Dx” However, this water bottle has a plastic lid you can wash to make it clean again and the bottle itself is dish washer safe, so a cycle through the dish water should take the old owner’s cooties off of it. 😉 I may or may not replace the lid, but I am leaning on keeping it though. 🙂 The water bottle is also made of glass and there were no cracks in it! YUS!

After shopping, we went to visit LOCCousinC and her two kids! We had a nice visit and I even got to hold their guinea pig, Buster! Oh my gosh guys… While I was petting Buster, he was SO RELAXED in my lap. He just loved to be held! He was such a little cutie. 🙂 We had a very fun time catching up with LOCCousinC and her kids and we will be seeing her again at my birthday party soon! 😀

Also, two packages from Amazon came today! One package had two shoulder strap pads in them for my impending folding event chair that I will be buying soon and the other soulder strap will be an extra for something else. 🙂  The other package was a duvet cover! Props to one of my wonderful readers for the duvet cover idea for my bed to replace my top sheet! 😀

I know, it’s not the sexiest duvet cover setup in the world, but it did work! Ironically, when I was going to use my new duvet cover the very same day, the humidity was just too warm to use a duvet cover anymore. Booooooooo. 😦 So I put it away and I basically had to use a top sheet to sleep with at night since it is always so warm in our house during the summer. 😦

And besides buying some Tums in bulk at Walgreens, I basically relaxed all evening. 🙂

Money Spent on Sunday

  • New-ish Water Bottle – $3.19
  • White Drawer/Shelf Matting – $2.19
  • Tums (Bulk Size) – $11.25

Total Amount Spent: $16.63

So all and all, a great weekend!

But I do have some exciting news to share! Because of a formula Social Security uses to calculate how much money I am suppose to get in disability every month, for June and July only, I will be receiving a bit of a raise from what I normally get! I am so stoked and so happy! With the raise I will be recieving, I will definitely be purchasing a new mattress for myself from a local mattress company that makes mattresses. I bought my current mattress from them about 5 years ago and it really needs to be replaced. 😦 I currently have padding on my bed so I don’t really feel my now wonky mattress, but having a new mattress would make a world of difference. Especially a mattress that is locally made by people who specialize in making mattresses. ❤

As for the rest of the money I will have left over, I have already spent it on a lot of things I really needed! Those needed items included the nightstand I bought at that garage sale and the duvet cover. 🙂 I also bought more healthy food at Costco than I normally do that will benefit my diet I am on and for my health in general. And many more~~~! I am just thankful and feel so blessed. I really wish that Social Security will be expanded someday and give everyone on it a raise that they truly deserve in this day and age. I wish the United States and the whole world would even get a raise! I feel that no one should ever have to live in poverty and it would be so amazing to see poverty wiped off the face of the Earth someday and not exist anymore. That is one of my dreams I hope to see happen in my lifetime. ❤

Hoping everyone had a fun weekend! 😀

How was your weekend?
