Talan’s best friend/fitness trainer Jared has found her that he has a rare form of leukemia. They will have to operate on the bones on Jared back in the hope the disease won’t transition elsewhere. Jared
‘s gf Dalton is furious because he returned her lemon of a car instead of paying a car payment and repairs. He instead is paying more on his insurance. I told Dalton I know it is inconvenient not to have a ride but imagine not having your boyfriend to help raise your 4 year old son Jack. I don’t think Dalton understands how serious this is.
Dalton is 21. Never had a job. Got pregnant her senior year with Jack. She told Jared her biggest dream was becoming a mom. Jared and Dalton are proud of their 3 year old Jack and said if Jared survives cancer they plan to have 1 more. They are good parents. I am proud of them. I didn’t have the heart to tell Jared he might end up infertile if they have to put him on chemo.
Yesterday I took Dalton out and taught her ways to save money. We went to Treasure Bins. Yesterday was quarter day. I had a$2.59 haul.. Thursday is Quarter Day :)Treasure Bin haul black wig,seahorse tea strainer, as seen on tv ear cleaner, nail stickers, best bitches key rings, pink ear savers for masks, 3 black masks, multiple hairclips, I split half hair clips Dalton because there was 68 of them, and one iron on cherry patch. Dalton and my best friend Tella begs me to take them every Thursday. We have a cheap shopping spree. It is tons of fun.
I took Dalton to Goodwill. I got her shopping there instead paying full price at Wal-Mart. For groceries I taught her how to save money on shopping at Aldi. She also asked me to teach her to coupon. I am not the best at it but I am willing to try. I guess I better start getting coupons.
I told Dalton you can get 3 pounds of ice for $1 and 2.75 liters of off brand soda for $1. She told me there is no way. She was in shock at the Dollar Tree. I laughed at her.
I took her to Sam’s Club and showed her how cheap the cafe is. She bought a frozen Pepsi icee for 89 cents. She said it had to be wrong I laughed. When we bought frozen yogurt with our husbands for 99 cents for a huge cup of frozen yogurt she said she couldn’t believe I haven’t told her about this. I laughed. Nobody hid it. She just wasn’t paying attention!
Dalton is very sheltered never taught how to save money. Next summer I plan to take her to the flea market and yard sales and watch her be fascinated.
I alrsady showed her freeflys.com where she can sign up for free things in the mail. She often shows her freebie haul proud. She signs up every day for free items. She found a new addiction. Dalton begs me to teach her all my cheapskate ways. I laugh. Jared says says he never knew his obsessively shopping gf can become a cheapskate so easily..she views this a fun. I save money to pay my bills.
Dalton want to teach me Ibotta. So far she is getting $20 back. She plans to save these gift cards to get her sons presents for Christmas.
Yesterday I saw Talan play with Jack. It was adorable. He asked me if I had baby fever yet. I don’t think I will ever be ready for a kid. I am 33.. If you ever hear me pregnant it was a mistake! No offense parents but I am afraid!
Today I work 3-8. I plan to look in
Treasure Bins. They new stock they are putting out. I plan to nap till then.
