$1 for 18 month supply of contacts

April 25th, 2017 at 08:40 pm

I had my yearly eye exam and ordered contacts. I usually do every other year glasses, and every opposite year contacts. My exam was free with my health insurance and I had a $200 allowance for my eye wear. My contacts came out to $201 for 18 month supply.....so total OOP was $1!

I always try to get my apt. earlier in the calendar year so that I don't forget about the benefit, or run out of time to use it during the busy holiday season.

Back from Vegas! $20K Update!

April 24th, 2017 at 04:18 pm

We are back from Laughlin/Vegas! We had a lot of fun and overall had a very cheap vaca, we only had to take $605 out of savings! I am excited that we were able to hang on above $18K!! Now back to the grind until our next vaca at the end of July.

We are still working on getting a renter for my old house (Rental #2). I have not advertised it to strangers yet, still hoping maybe we can find a friend/family member before we have to do that, but if something doesn't come up in the next few weeks we will need to open it to the masses as I don't want to miss more then one months rent.

Spring Cleaning mode has hit me and I feel totally overwhelmed with all the cleaning, organizing, lawn work, repairs that need to get done! Time to make a list to get some organization and planning implemented!

So I went out of state last weekend to do bridesmaid dress shopping, everything went great, lots of fun with the bride and the other bridesmaids....then on the long drive home I get a text that the wedding is postponed?!!? No details. WTH. Thank goodness I didn't pay for my dress yet! Hoping everything works out because the Bride and Groom are really the best and so great together.


Then totally separate.....we thought it was weird that our family friend (FF) was moving out of our rental #2, he isn't buying a house, or moving in with someone new....he told MO he was moving because "he is a wanderer, and he has been there too long and needs to move on".....super weird. He only pays $600 a month for half of a 4 bedroom home, with fenced yard, hot tub, 2 stall garage, etc. It's a great deal and I can't image he can get a better deal somewhere else.

Then a few days after FF gives his notice, my BIL calls to tell MO, that his wife told him she wants a divorce....and she is moving into an apt with her BF....our FAMILY FRIEND/TENANT. Everyone is shocked and upset. I have thought for a long time that SIL and FF were too close, and I even called her out on it once, but of course she denied it and said they were just friends. UGH. I feel so terrible for my BIL, FF was one of his best friends, and he had no idea about anything. Also BIL's brother (a 3rd brother to MO and BIL) was living with FF this whole time that the sneaking around was going on! Very brazen SIL I have....

Yes!! A great update! MO got his bonus, a lot of it was used to pay catch-up from overspending, but still able to put $500 in savings, plus we are looking good in checking.

My cousin came and looked at Rental #2, he is very interested and wants to see if his camper will fit on the parking pad next to the house. Sounds like as long as that works out he will want to move in! Fingers crossed!
