A Few Updates and a Wallet Clean Out

I did a little blog maintenance yesterday. I took down my ad sense ads, seems I was in “violation” of the ad sense terms and agreements (don’t remember getting a notice about it) and since ad sense never made me any $$, off it went. I also updated my blog roll with a few new blogs that I’ve been reading (I need to put on a few more) and took off my blog roll a couple blogs that went by the way side or went private. One day I’ll get around to really making this blog template spiffy, one day!

I had my first no spend day yesterday! Awesome for me. Did it without even trying. Blew today already as a no spend day, got gas and got dog food all by 8:30 AM. Tomorrow is not looking good either, I have a dentists appointment and need to do some food shopping for the weekend.

I have misplaced my Costco, Library, and medical insurance cards. I emptied my wallet of cards that did not need to come to the UK with me (those being three of them) and now can not find them. I had a stack of other cards (some old gift cards, rewards cards etc) and thought maybe I had them in that pile, no such luck. I did also clean off my computer desk to look for said cards. Since the home computer really does not work all that well, I'm not using my desk all that much and it has become a dumping ground for paper debris. The desk was looking way to messy for my liking.

I did sit down and sort through my piles of paper, wrote checks to pay some bills, shredded what could be shredded and filed what needed to be filed (I really need to get off my ARSE and get a scanner as I had planned to do LAST YEAR). My desk is a lot tidier, but still no missing cards. I can stop at Costco over the weekend, replace that card and do the same at the library the next time I'm in. I'll call the insurance company on Monday and order a new card. I know I decided to "put them in a new someplace safe spot" and will find them come June. Those three cards were lumped together in my wallet and have been for years. I hate it when I decide it's a good time to move things around and change storage locations. I am such a creature of habit! I will look again when I get home tonight.

Before my trip I cleaned out my purse of those cards not needed for travel. I was amazed at what I was carrying around in my purse. Business cards of friends, assorted rewards cards, frequent flier cards for airlines I don't even travel on anymore (from when I did travel on a more frequent basis). I even had a separate little wallet for all those cards. WHY? I took a good look at the pile of cards, picked out the two that I use on a more frequent basis and put those in my little wallet. The rest are wrapped up and sitting on my desk. I can guarantee you I won't need those cards for a really long time.

Ah well, lets hope I go home and find those cards just sitting out there waiting for me!

I always try to clean out my purse and I FAIL MISERABLY because it's too damn heavy to begin with, especially with coins in it.

Oh, and did you click on your own ads? Cuz that's a no-no from Adsense.

I have always said that they should make ONE discount card for all stores. It would increase the tracking ability across stores and eliminate the 15 that I used to carry in my wallet. Even then I never seemed to have the right card when I needed it.

No Spend days are always a challenge but it's amazing what you can live without if you have to. There is always something in the fridge or the cabinet that you can find to eat or use up.

What gets me on no spend days are the things like needing stamps to mail a letter that MUST go out, gas for the car, or someother small incidental.

I sell a boat-program which will help you to outwit auction and to win, initially the boat was created for the Scandinavian auction but now the program can work with similar auctions: gagen ru, vezetmne ru and with ten.
The program-boat stakes for you, i.e. for this purpose it is not necessary to sit constantly at the monitor. The boat can set time when it is necessary to stake, thus you as much as possible will lower expenses for rates, and as much as possible increase the chances of a victory.

The price of the program a boat for the Scandinavian auctions 20$

For the first 10 clients the price 15$

To all clients free updating and support.
