Frugal Friday with Marsha -- It's My Birthday


Yay for the Lord giving me another year of life and for surrounding me with family and friends who love me.

I don't have much to say about this past week.  I didn't spend much money, but then again I didn't have much to spend.
I had $10 in Walmart cards and used those to get cat food--using $2 coupons, as well as get the savingstar Friday freebie and healthy choice item of the week as well as some bananas with a rebate from checkout51.

Here it is Friday again.  I don't have to go to Walmart since I no longer have that merchandising job.  Will I go?  I don't know.  I will check on the Friday Freebies both on savingstar and Dillon's.  Oh yes, I remember seeing last night that salt is the Friday freebie for savingstar.  I will plan on just picking it up at Dillon's as well.

All of my children have already called or messaged to wish me a Happy Birthday.  My son called early, waking me up wanting to be the first one to tell me happy birthday.
My oldest daughter treated me to a Matthew West with Colton Dixon and Mr. Talkhead concert last night.
Just for fun I will share a few of the pictures that I took last night.

Writer's Unite 4/23/15


How has your writing week been?
I'm actually caught up on all book and products that I had in for review.   I was a little overwhelmed for a bit, now I have nothing.
I have a write up that I want to do about alternatives to Etsy since their announcement to go public.

Right now, I will be honest though.  I'm not feeling well and need to find a way to get to the doctor.  Wish me luck please or say a prayer that it's something simple that is wrong.  I don't like feeling out of sorts like this!

Share on though and I will love, as usual, to see what all you share.

WIP Wednesday 4/22/15

Busy off and on with my sewing, but I did get some things worked on.

We had an afternoon movie at church on Sunday.  I always take something to work on while watching the movie.  This time I worked on yo-yo's.    This is what I got made in that time:

I got my challenge quilt done to the point of cutting away edge and sewing down the binding.  This has to be done to take to quilt guild Monday morning.

My son's birthday is next week and I've decided to make him an apron.  Last year I gave him BBQ tools so an apron is logical.  I only got all of the pieces cut out so far, but again, this has to be done this week.

This Is Going To Be An Interesting Week

License: CC0 Public Domain / FAQ Free for commercial use / No attribution required

For those of you who are following me also on bubblews you know that one of my merchandising jobs ended as of last Friday.
Hubby asked me how much I was making a month there.  The answer was $96.  He then commented that I will just have to do more clicking on the computer.

If you have been following my blog, especially on Monday's then you know that I've been working in several traffic exchanges.
After last week's post I knew that most of you were thinking to yourself--Why is she doing this for just $4.50 a week?
That got me to thinking.

As I surf the traffic exchanges, of course every website that I do to earn is in rotation between all of them.   As I surf, when I run across one of the other sites that I do either in rotation or as a banner or text ad, I click over and work that site a bit too.
This has gotten me back to doing some that I have been a member of for years, but rarely gotten to on a regular basis again.

My challenge for myself this week is to keep track of all money that I earn this week and see what my total is.
I got some of my current amounts written in my notebook last night.  I have spent this morning getting the rest of them

I say it's going to be an interesting week because I've never broken down what I earn in this way.  I'm both anxious and nervous to see just what my totals are this time next week.

Have you ever done anything like this--broke your earnings down?

Until next Monday---keep on earning!!

p.s.  I need to work this week also on getting my earning online page updated as well.
