A Bicycle and Other Stuff

Yesterday we made our usual trip to the Goodwill (and our usual haul!).  Hubby found this bike for $25 and promptly snapped it up.  Plus he bought a couple dozen--name brand no less--shirts for 50 cents to $1.50.  I swear he is never shopping at a retail store again.  We were at Ross a few days ago and he didn't even look at clothes proclaiming that all the clothes he needs can be found at the Goodwill and for much cheaper than any other store sells them.
And other stuff:

  • I was able to buy the "uniform" for my new job--black pants and a green polo shirt--for $4 total at the Goodwill.
  • I decided not to interview for the crossing guard job because we will be taking a two week cruise in the early spring plus be leaving in mid May for the bike trip so I didn't want to commit to a job then leave them hanging which wouldn't be a very nice thing to do to them or to the little kids that would be counting on me to be there.
  • This was a good post: 10 Habits of People Who Are Well Off
  • Tomorrow is our anniversary!  26 years! Wow!  I'm still waiting for a check that was supposed to come in days ago which is what I was going to use to take the hubby out for lunch tomorrow so we may end up eating at a casino (free) instead of Fogo de Chao ($75).  But then again that may be OK since we were discussing whether we really wanted to spend $75 for lunch when we have more important goals so that money may in fact end up in savings.


  1. You would think in a town that has so many Birthday freebies they would have anniversary ones too. Happy Anniversary!

  2. Happy anniversary!!!

    Can't wait to hear all about the job.

  3. Happy Anniversary! Nice deal on the bike, $25? Impressive. Thanks for including my post here by the way!

  4. I hope you had a wonderful anniversary!! So excited to hear about your new job and your new savings goals. I did try adding you back a couple times but it still comes up to that spanish page in the link. So please know I am still visiting....just in a more roundabout way :-)
