End of March update

March 30th, 2008 at 05:15 am

I will get paid tomorrow. since it will be busy I decided to go ahead and pay the bills today. Will hold off on mailing them until I see the deposit in my account. Things are looking good. I also sent DHs paycheck to the savings account and have money set aside to take out for spending for the next two weeks.

It feels so good not to have to worry about if there is enough money to pay for everything.

On the frugality side

    My dad lives in a apartment complex that only has senior citizens. Various companies (mostly food) bring in leftover items. It is a tax deduction for them. At 5pm whatever is leftover the complex throws out. Well my dad knows the person that does the throwing out. He walks out to the dumpster with them and then takes whatever is left that looks good. He then distributes it to various family members. No one wanted the rolls. If he didn't take it then the raccoons were going to have a good dinner.

    I think it is too bad that so much food in this country goes to waste. Perfectly fine food but because organizations are afraid of lawsuits and they should be, it is all thrown away

    Yeah, my brother tells me that when he was in cooking school, all the food that was prepared was thrown away because of city ordinances. It's such a shame.
