Several of the folks in my apartment complex intentionally spread out their prescriptions so they can order various odds and ends during the month and have them delivered free of charge.

Great advice Aunt Bea. Rite Aid makes at least one trip to my building each day. That includes Sundays and holidays. And because it is for the elderly, delivery is free. That $5 can mean a meal for some elderly folks.

Even a $5 delivery fee would be better than $14 in taxis.

We have a couple of residents who own a car, and if they pass anyone in the hall as they head out, will ask if they need anything at the store or would like a lift somewhere. Specially toward the end of the month. And when I am outside on my scooter, I will see some of the folks carrying heavy bundles from the bus stop. I will rush to meet them and take their bundles from them and bring them right to their door. It is not like I am using any gas in my electric scooter. And they have to walk almost three blocks from the bus stop carrying those heavy bundles. I am sure some of them must have a bad heart.

I know it doesn't sound like much, but each year I've been getting a raise, the cable bill goes up more than the raise. Food stamps are lowered while food prices continues to go up, and my rent goes up too. The fixed income keeps getting smaller,
Zhi~ try walgreens.com for an Online Pharmacy that will deliver your meds for free. On time and free shipping has to be the best decision. It's how I get Shrek's medications.

I am trying to get up the energy to do my last baking "job". I ordered a cake for the little guy's birthday, but told his Mom I would still make a gluten-free cake for her uncle. It is easy as I found a mix that is so close to regular wheat based cake it is incredible so that will make it very easy. TB is very excited that he gets to eat the "real thing", even though it is store bought.

I have some house-cleaning to do before we go to the party as we are having friends over tomorrow.

It feels so good not to be in cake decorating mode. So I know I have made the right decision.

Sure my computer runs slower, but I had Spike clean out my computer and I am patient. It really didn't affect it that much. I got an $8 raise in January on my SS check, and a $3 raise on my rent. I now have only my cell phone. I got rid of the landline. That alone was a $20 savings.
I don't understand. Can you give me more information on this? I'd love to lower my cable bill. I'm paying $145 a month!

Bring retired, I depend on internet and TV for my entertainment and am not about to give any of it up.

I get a free cellphone and service from AssuranceWireless.com. It's also available from SafeLink.com.

When Spike comes tonight I will ask him. He is the one who put me onto it. I went from $145 like you to $132 a month.

If she has a newer Samsung TV, they probably can, really.

I'm thinking Addie is getting slower bandwidth and maybe the high def TV is now low def.

What are you doing?

I yanked up the cuke vines, they looked terrible, as do my cherry tom vines, but they're still producing. Don't even start me on the peppers or Jetstar toms. I planted more bush bean seeds where the cukes had been. Otherwise I've been watching a Cutthroat Kitchen marathon and sitting on my backside. DH has some sort of cold, and has been alternating between Sleepy and Grumpy. Thankfully he's on the upper level.
