Spending Spree

August 16th, 2010 at 08:00 pm

Been spending a little more recently.
I added $30 the other day on my prepaid cell phone.
Got cable TV and internet about a week ago. Then purchased a router for that for about $79.
Today I bought a few little items from Marcs with cash and not expensive but still mainly just wants. Then decided on getting a GPS Tom Tom at Target that was on sale. I really don't feel too bad about it though cause these things were not totally frivolous. And my hours have been a lot better at my job.
Definately have to get back to my old frugal ways though.

I'm hoping that I can somehow figure out a way to make a few extra dollars with my new high speed internet. Thats something I'm going to work on.

    At the very least sign up for paid surveys and sites that let you earn points, usually by reading emails or doing internet searches, that can be cashed in for gift cards. Also look for coupon codes if you buy an item online.

    Thanks creditcardfree. I did belong to several survey sites but got tired of them and stopped using them. I just returned to MySurvey today and did a few there.

    How do you like the TomTom? I have a Garmin one but found it to be just OK, and it did lead me off on a couple of wild goose chases. I'd rather have some insurance that I can rely on the GPS, or what's the point?

    Well so far I like it. But I haven't got to try it out very much. I think it also may be missing some of the fancier extras that some of the other ones have. I think it will get me to where I'm going though

    I don't know if this counts cos I've only used the UK one but I borrowed my BIL's TomTom and I thought it was great, both times I had no idea where I was going and it got me there Smile

    Thanks scottish girl. I think mine will get me where I'm going to. I get lost pretty easily so I normaly use mapquest and just print out the directions. That gets me going in the right direction but sometimes its off a little. So I think the Tom Tom will be an improvement for me.
