What did I do/buy this weekend? (October 1, 2017)

Hello, everybody! Today was a relaxing, yet fun weekend! Se what I did and bought this weekend!

On Saturday, I bought a used game taht was Animal Crossing for my 2DS!

So, when I got home, I got the game all set up and one of my only regret when starting my game is that I didn’t get the ocean front property with a trail next to it leading to the beach, darn it. 😦 I was thinking beforehand, “Oh, I’ll just walk to it!” But NOPE, I wish I had the convenience now. 😦 Oh well… πŸ™‚ Made some outfits as well and currently waiting for my house to go up! Since the game syncs to the exact time of day it is in real life, I have to wait a full day for some things to happen in the game. Meh. 😦 So once you are out of things to do in the game, you have to wait another day. I just hate the waiting part. 😦

Besides that, the game is fun and I’m happy I bought it! I have another game I want to purchase as well, but since I was borrowing LOCMom’s money for the Animal Crossing game purchase, I had to wait on the second game. But soooooon, it will be mine! πŸ™‚

Also on Saturday, LOCMom and I went to Alpaca Days at an alpaca farm! I love going to this event because you can be around cute alpacas. πŸ™‚ I even got to hug one! πŸ˜€

Unlike most of them, this one did not mind being touched by a human. So I took full advantage of the moment! πŸ™‚ And yes, I have cute key chains on my purse. πŸ˜‰ I love them a lot. πŸ™‚

Then I went to the Spendypants Grocery Store, or Holiday, and got a watermelon and a pint of ice cream since I was craving some! Maaaaaan, was that ever good!

Ate it all in one night, haha. πŸ™‚

Money Spent on Saturday:

  • Animal Crossing Game – $20.37
  • Pint of Ice Cream – $5.49
  • Watermelon – $4.99

Total Amount Spent: $30.85

Now you must be wondering, “Now Ms. Living On Cents, why was the pint of ice cream so expensive?” Well, it was because it was one of those special brands of ice cream that have locally sourced ingredients in them. So I guess that is why it was so expensive? But still, it was gooooooood. Money well spent, if you ask me. πŸ™‚

On Sunday, I got up and played my Animal Crossing game again! It was pretty fun until I ran out of stuff to do, haha. πŸ™‚ Gotta’ wait until the next day!

Then during the afternoon, LOCMom and I went grocery shopping at Trader Joe’s and at the Frugalpants Grocery Store, or Winco. While I was there, I decided to get some Halloween candy to hand out to Trick-or-Treaters that come to our door on Halloween! All I forgot was a plastic bowl though…

This candy was out of the bulk bins, so I saved of few bucks on it instead of buying the spendypants bags of candy! That’s two pounds of candy right there! πŸ˜€ And if that is not enough, I will also buy Butterfingers to hand out! Out of the Frugalpants Grocery Store bulk bins, of course. πŸ˜‰ So… I will not eat this candy before Halloween… I will not eat this candy before Halloween… I will not eat this candy before Halloween… But of course, I tested a piece to see if it was poisoned, or in other words, off-tasting, but it was fine!

And by popular demand, I will put everything down I bought at the grocery store on my list since y’all are curious. πŸ™‚

Money Spent on Sunday:

  • Jumbo Eggs – $1.99
  • Bird Seed (from bulk bins) – $2.49
  • Reese’s Candy (from bulk bins) – $4.10
  • Snickers Candy (from bulk bins)- $3.72
  • Bananas (3) – $0.53
  • Milk – $3.49
  • GUM Tooth Picks – $2.56

Total Amount Spent: $18.88

Can you believe in the Halloween candy section, they were asking for bags of candy that were a little over a pound for the price of $5.48 a bag? At least by going to the bulk section, I saved a dollar or two! Hooray for saving money! πŸ˜€ And I know I could buy birdseed in bulk from a feed store or Walmart, but the pigeons in the Frugalpants Grocery Store parking lot like the birdseed I get them in the FrugalpantsΒ Grocery Store. πŸ™‚ The ducks also like this particular seed because it floats on the water so it’s easier for them to eat. I was meaning to buy this exact seed from the feed store this month, but we shall see. πŸ™‚

Also, today is October 1st and this was the day ABLE accounts were suppose to be available to all of California. But unfortunately, after calling a number Social Security gave to me about ABLE accounts, I found out the availability of them were pushed back to this winter or early 2018. 😦 Makes me so sad… 😦 I’ll be sure to update everybody when I finally get an ABLE account though.

All and all, it was a good weekend even though I was a bit spendy though. πŸ™‚ Can’t wait to see what next weekend brings! πŸ˜€

How was your weekend?

  1. I agree! The ice cream I bought was pretty clean ingredient wise. πŸ™‚ Those big brand ice creams have all sorts of stuff in them that you wouldn’t realy put in ice cream if you made it, haha. πŸ™‚

    An ABLE account ia an account where people with disabilities can save up to $100,000 and it not harm their social security benefits. Meaning, if I got one, I can save over $2000 and still keep receiving money from social security. πŸ™‚ I’m looking forward to it because just because someone lives on SSDI does not mean they have to live in poverty. No one deserves to live in poverty. No one. 😦

  2. Unfortunately, I can’t even have an Roth IRA or 401K or I would have taken full advantage of them by now. : ( Can’t go over $2000. It’s awful. But with an ABLE account, I will finally be able to save over $2000 whch I am patiently waiting for to come to my state. πŸ™‚

    And yes, the alpacas are cute and wonderful. ❀ Wish I could have hugged more of them! C:
