Just another day and another dollar

July 30th, 2014 at 06:49 am

Our foreign exchange student arrives Monday.

I am now a firm believer in lists. I need to buy a curtain rod today and have DH put up tonight.

DH is heading up to Boy Scout camp for three days leaving tomorrow. He initially opted out because of the two week vacation to California and his departure is at the end of August. Guess what? They don't have enough work for him this week (next week is another story). And our 11 year old is battling a bad bout of homesickness. So DH is off, driving the 5-hour ride with a friend who was already going. Need to borrow a sleeping bag and that is it.

Younger daughter got her new-to-her uniform skirt for the new high school. She is getting excited. The Back to School excitement is creeping in for some of my kids, others not so much.

Considering the purchase of a $100 Old Navy gift card offered through CVS. I can get $15 CVS bucks. I do think that qualifies as making money while spending.

DH opened up a new Citibank credit card and will get $200 back after he spends $1,500 in three months. I am counting at Christmas money. I also opened up a checking/savings account with them and should be getting $100 in the next $30 days.

That is all the non-exciting things going on.

    I think I will check out that Citbank card! I am not currently working on a bonus and it kind of feels weird!

    The Old Navy card is a good deal as long as you were going to spend money on clothes anyway. I'm guessing that with a bunch of kids, there is always a need for clothes! My question is, do the uniforms for school help out with the clothing cost?

    I just opened that card. I had an offer in the mail for it. I have had it in the past, I do like the ones with 0%...just in case. You might like that for a little more flexibility while you are in a income lull.

    We spend a lot at Old navy too. Where's your exchange student from?

    Italy. There is another Christian Brothers school in Verona, Italy. She will be here first semester only and is a senior, despite being my daughter's age (junior).

    Wow! Italy! How fun for all of you! Take her to Italian Village--that'll make her laugh!
