What did I do/buy this weekend? (March 3-4, 2018)

Hello, everybody! Sorry for the Weekend Update delay, I had a killer migraine yesterday. 😦 But it’s gone now! Come see what I did this weekend! πŸ˜€

On Saturday, I decided that I wanted to splurge on some yummy chocolates, so I went to See’s Candy and bought some Springtime Truffles! They had dark chocolate raspberry and lemon filling inside of them! Mmmmm… Good stuff! πŸ˜€

Sorry about the random cat hair. LOCKitty Amelia sheds a lot , so fur is always getting everywhere. πŸ˜›

Then I went to Clothing Revival to see if they had a pair of shorts there that I liked! And sheeeeesh, their clothing must have been for 8-12 year olds because all of their clothes were so short and silly… I managed to find a pair of exercise shorts that fitted nicely and I had, keyword ‘had’, a $5.00 off coupon for them, but I left it in the dressing room that somebody else went and used, so IΒ couldn’t go back in and get it. Boy, did that make my blood boil. 😑 I’m sure some of my readers know how that is when you lose something precious to you when every penny counts. Having a good deal and then losing it… Sheesh. 😦

After Clothing Revival, I went to Goodwill and bought a sun hat and a plastic green basket for my hygiene supplies on my bathroom counter. When I saw the green basket at Goodwill, I decided that I was going to be the person that saved it from the dump and make use of it in my home. So I did just that. πŸ™‚ The sun hat was for a Luffy cosplay from the manga series, One Piece. I tried my hardest to make the hat look nice with pieces of red ribbon around the top of it like Luffy’s hat, but the hat is just a little too small for my head, haha. πŸ˜› But it’s fine since it was just for a cheap costume prop. πŸ™‚

After heading home from the store, I also read the rest of March Comes in Like a Lion manga series and I am OFFICIALLY all caught up to the latest manga volume now and I am SO PUMPED! Man, that Japanese comic book series is great! Also, I was able to gather more source material from a character that stars in a piece of fanfiction that I wrote about him, so I was able to improve his character in my fanfiction that I wrote about the manga series. πŸ™‚ It flows so well now. ❀

Money Spent on Saturday

  • Sun Hat – $3.19
  • Plastic Green Basket – $0.69
  • See’s Candy Springtime Truffles – $7.75
  • Exercise Shorts – $7.67

Total Amount Spent:Β $19.30

On Sunday, I went to my favorite seamstress’ house to get my size 14 pants hemmed! These size 14 pants are designer jeans I bought at Goodwill for 7 bucks each and they look so good on me! πŸ™‚ But the pant legs on all of them are way too long, so I budgeted money for them this month so they could be hemmed! Now I waiting until they are fixed up so I can finally wear them and put away my size 16 pants for good because I’m planning on never being that size again! πŸ˜€

I also went to the Frugalpants Grocery Store for some cheap groceries, but had to buy some household supplies which ran my total up over 30 bucks. T _T I try to keep my grocery bill under $30.00 usually, so whenever I go over 30 bucks, it huuuuurts. 😦 I also bought some chocolate there as well, but seeing that the chocolate I bought will probably not taste good after buying the same brand at the dollar store, I will be taking it back. Can’t waste precious calories on bad chocolate. > _>

I also went to the Spendypants Thrift Store and bought myself a PINK bag that was from Victoria’s Secret! Before buying it though, I looked it over since it was covered in sequins to see if anything was damaged on the bag and everything looked mostly fine! So I purchased it! πŸ™‚ It is such a cute bag and I will probably use it when I go on trips and stuff like that. I would never buy a PINK branded bag from Victoria’s Secret for full price, but I will pay a discount for it, haha. πŸ˜›
