Hi all. So I decided to try a Free Sample Experiment. When you search the internet it’s amazing how many FREE things are out there for the taking. You just have to ask for it! Anything from makeup, to detergents, to food. I thought that the experiment would be fun and I’m curious to see the outcome and how long it would take to get the samples (plus, save some money). Anyone wanna play along?
We’ve been doing okay with saving money except I had to buy some new clothes for work which put us in the negative of about $100. Grocery shopping has been under $100 every week but more like $85-$90 a week instead of $70 (FAIL). I have to work harder on this. As for my clothes, the reason why I had to buy new clothes is that a few months ago I went through all of my clothes and either threw them away or donated them. Problem was, I never replaced them which caused a severe lack in my work wardrobe so the other day I went on the New York & Company website (which is one of my favorite places to shop) and there were a lot of items on sale! I used my Ebates app and got $7.50 back and also FREE shipping! I’m excited to receive some new blouses for work and freshen things up a bit. It is MUCH NEEDED!
I’ve saved about $80 a month on gas since I started working at my new job which is much closer to my house. The only thing that takes a chunk out of my gas tank is that I drive about 60 miles round trip for bowling once a week. And that’s fine, I enjoy bowling ….most of the time ;).
How’s everyone’s week going?
Till next time…I’ll see ya soon!
