Going to Retire Giveaway Ends September 30, 2016

It's going to happen this year. I'm going to join many baby boomers and retire. It doesn't mean I will be sitting twiddling the thumbs or playing golf. I have a lot of plans including volunteer work and hopefully part-time income doing something that brings joy and pleasure.

I don't have a big savings so looking at frugal ways to save and live comfortably while enjoying a vacation or two yearly. I bring in an extra $100 worth in surveys, Swag, Mypoints, etc. that allows me my Starbucks fixation and occasional splurge.

I'm looking for other savings from re purposing, couponing, clothing, (keep in mind I don't sew), shoes, and more.

One thing I enjoy doing is reburshing some of my old stuff into new. I have a 1960 end table from the Bahamas I plan to restain and maybe add a photo on top with clear sealer. I'll blog later the steps.

If you have a website you trust that sells bargain merchandise, a place to get good coupons you don't have to buy several to use or have to print, (ink cost), and other tricks and ideas, please share below and be in the running for a $20 paypal. I'll even surprise a second winner with a gift box of misc selected goodies worth up to $15. I'm unsure of the box yet  but maybe some fall reading material with candy or could be a few little new things.

Note: I moderate comments and sometimes it may be in the evenings. If you don't see your entry it's because I haven't added it yet. I only remove nasty comments and spam. Before the end, I will make sure all comments are on before the winners are chosen. 

Mandatory entry is to comment something frugal. 18 years of age and over please and in the U.S. (see entry form.)

Yahoo Stories

I was reading articles on Yahoo, I know, I know, and whether they are true or part true, I don't know but they can be interesting like when Goldie Hawn and Kurt Russell tried their kid's Ouija board and seemed to predict their baby Wyatt or the inmates from Parker County, Texas that busted out of their room to help a guard  who slumped over and had no pulse. They screamed and banged on doors to get someone to come help. It could have turned out bad but they didn't care, they wanted to help. Kudos to them.

One story that caught my eye and bothers me is about Fanta Jawara of Frederick, MD. She was in Africa for a family reunion and right before she was to fly home, she was arrested for protesting against Yahya Jammeh. She was near but was not a part of the protest, (according to the article), and was arrested and beaten; thrown into the PIU camp.

However, people on Fanta's side of the family are part of the opposition party that organized the protest. It looks like she was a part and not just in the vicinity but that is just my opinion.In the meantime she is a prisoner in a snake riddled cell, sleeping on concrete and eating dirt laden cornmeal.

The story is horrendous. You can read it Here
