I went to Jeremy's today. That's where I get clothes to sell on EBAY. It's mostly clothing from Anthropologie that isn't in season and is about 50% off. This is good because I sell these clothes on EBAY and bad because I want to buy clothes for myself. I picked up 6 items equaling about $140. Then I put back 4 of the items. It came to $40 for the two items. I didn't use the c.c.which I'm glad about. However, I'm a little disappointed about spending anything at all....Just two days ago I didn't have a dime and now that I've been paid why is it I always feel I have excess cash when I have credit card bills to pay??? While in the checkout line I heard a patron say, "I go shopping and my BF says who is this Jeremy anyway? Jeremy's is like my crack dealer she said. Only instead of crack it's clothes!"

I realize every day there are so many little freebies that it is impossible to add them up. Thanks to the universe for providing. I bet if I did add them up they would be the exact amount I had to pay for a new transmission, which I had to do yesterday. So I figure me and the universe are now even for awhile.
I spent $50 Christmas money on a tank of biodiesel today. Another goal of mine is to find where to buy that stuff cheaper! When you go to the actual station it's more than gas. I've heard you can make it for almost free-or buy it from private parties for around 1.00 per gallon.......I am going to track my spending on the vehicle then see if I can't muster up more energy to bike ride or roller skate at work.....heck both are free with benefits.
So I decided to try out those sayings you hear like, "What goes around comes around." We loaded up the car with our weekly donations for Elizabeth House. This is a charity that takes EVERYTHING. No questions or regulations -they are happy to get anything you offer. After that we went to a garage sale and looked through boxes of free stuff. We took three hats for the kids, one angel figurine and one sweater for me. We were almost home when we spotted the new clothing store with bright kids tee shirts out front. I actually had to do a three point turn to turn the car around. I should have known there'd be trouble. It was a new small store that was half punk half vintage and also sold silkscreen kids shirts. My four year old found a tiger shirt he couldn't resist a shirt for dad who actually has no shirts without holes and a shirt for me. $68 less rich is what I am today. How do people resist the temptation? Payday just came and went so this went on the overdraft. Next payday is December 27th which should yeald around 2 grand. Enough to knock off 10% of the cards. Although I desperately NEED 4 new tires. One blew last night and I'm riding around on the spare.....
