What did I do this Weekend? (December 1-2, and the 4th, 2017)

I am so sorry everybody! I was really cold yesterday and felt out of it, so I couldn’t post the Weekend Update! To be fair, it’s still cold and I lost my gloves, but I don’t feel too out of it today. Come see what I did this weekend, or last weekend, haha. πŸ™‚ No Spending Summary for this weekend because I think I accidentally threw out my receipts. Oops. :C

Well, for the later half of last week, LOCMom and I went to LOCAunt’s and LOCUncle’s house to visit! I went thrifting at the Fancypants Goodwill and found an OFFICIAL Disney Β horseΒ from the movie Brave (I think…), a Star Wars sheet set still new in its box, a Tigger mouse pad still new in its case, cat toys in an unopened cat toy Xmas stocking for Coco the cat, and a two pieces of clothing! Yup, goooooood stuff. πŸ™‚ Love the Fancypants Goodwill!

Since LOCMom and I will be moving to LOCAunt’s and LOCUncle’s area next year, we looked at a mobile home with LOCMom’s realtor as well! After seeing it and reading about how to find a good mobile courtesy of the internet, we are now armed with knowledge on how to find a good mobile home to buy! After December, we will start looking seriously for a place to live. πŸ™‚ As for me, I am excited! πŸ˜€

On Sunday, we traveled back home and just relaxed the entire evening. I went to the store and bought some veggies and a delicious rotisserie chicken! Yup, that is what I get when shopping while hungry. I buy delicious pre-cooked foods. However, in my defense, it was delicious though! πŸ™‚

And I guess since I don’t want this to be too short, I will expand on what happened today on Monday. LOCMom and I went into town and I went to theΒ Frugalpants Grocery Store to pick a few things up like food and pantry supplies for the bathroom. What I hate buying most is mouthwash. God, 5 bucks a pop for this stuff… And it’s the kid’s kind since I hate the adult minty stuff! Just ticks me off each time… But I decided to buy anther toothbrush instead of my regular $4.00 one that I really like. This one was under $2.00 and is a soft brush, so I hope it won’t be awkward to use when brushing my teeth. Then I bought foamy soap in bulk to refill my Dial brand foamy soap dispenser with which was around 4 bucks for 2 pounds of the stuff. I figure I will save more money than buying a different foamy soap despencer for $5-$6 a pop at TJMAXX. It’s like every time I buy one there, I’m just paying for the picture on the outside of the soap bottle! > .< So hopefully this bulk stuff will be worth the money. πŸ™‚ After using the fancy foamy soap, I can never go back to the regular stuff, haha. πŸ™‚

I also picked up my Fancypants Xmas cards from Costco that I will be sending out this year to everyone. First time sending photo cards and I am excited! These cards were $14.99 for 50 cards including envelopes and 4 copies of little 2018 calendars you make yourself on Costco’s website, so I thought, “What a deal!” πŸ˜€ Not sure what I will do with the little calendars that came with them, so I guess I will just trash them later on or give them away to somebody… Who knows, haha. πŸ™‚

And I guess that is it. Sorry for the lack of pictures. I’m cold, or at least my hands are, so I don’t feel posting any today. Don’t feel like moving around too much either. : ( Next Weekend Update, there will be pictures though, so please look forward to that!

How was your weekend?

  1. I love cold weather – but it’s certainly not everyone’s thing! πŸ™‚
    I always buy bulk soap to refill my foaming soap dispensers. I use 7th Generation brand dishwashing soap for the hand washing dispensers (we do this at my work too – it’s way cheaper this way). You just put an inch or so of soap in the bottom of the empty dispenser, add water so it’s about 7/8 full, put the top back on, and shake well. You can also do it with castile soap for the shower.
    I generally use bar soap for bathing, but I’m not so particular about that sort of thing.
    We did the photo cards from Costco one year. They were really nice, and good quality.

    1. OH MY GOD… I totally made my own foamy hand soap just now! Thank you for the wonderful idea! I didn’t know how easy it was to make! I just hope the effects of the homemade foamy hand soap stays foamy for weeeks on end, haha. πŸ™‚ If it does, that refill foamy soap is going back to the Frugalpants Grocery Store!

      Thank you so much again! πŸ˜€

  2. I do the same thing for foamy hand soap! I don’t know why they charge so much for something that is mostly water. I always buy cheap liquid soap and add hot water. Once you shake it, like Amara said, it lasts forever, won’t separate. I didn’t realize it got so cold in California, I guess you’re in the mountains? Sorry you’re so cold. I hate cold weather too. I hate winter and it’s not even really here yet. I gave up using mouthwash a long time ago. I think it’s a waste of money. My dentist says if you brush well, you really don’t need it.

    1. I’m so making my own foamy handsoap from now on! πŸ˜€

      I am not in the mountains, but in a valley. The reason I am cold all of the time is because the heater in our hosue is awful. 😦 We’re going to be moving next year, so no point in fixing it…

      Will have to ask my dentist about the mouthwash thing. Thanks for the great idea! πŸ˜€
