Well I’ve been a bit MIA for the past month…..because I just bought and moved into a house. All of my months of spend fasts and staying in finally paid off and I am now typing from my very own home. In Philadelphia, the rent has skyrocketed in the last year and for the responsible individual it is actually cheaper to just get a mortgage than to try to rent.
I haven’t had internet for most of the month so I feel very behind on a lot of my earning sites….but I was able to unpack most of my important things so it’s a trade off! All that’s left to unpack are books and art work. I should probably get some furniture soon. I need a couch which I plan to buy new and I need a table and chairs…but that I plan to obtain the free way. Right now I have a card table and a few different chairs so I’m making do. I’ve also fashioned a pillow/blanket fort in my living room in front of the TV.
My giftcard earnings have switched from Amazon and Starbucks to Pier1 and Lowes. Who am I? Is this what 29 looks like? I’m hoarding up gift cards so I can go on a big awesome shopping spree in February. I took some vacation days in February and I want to go to Delaware to ball out for my home. By then I bet I can earn another $100 or so – especially if I’m a hermit through January.
Spend fast, anyone?
