I have several of these now. A collection. I should have dated them and made a new category. I might get around to it. But for today just going to ramble stream of consciousness style.
I am certain we will be in the bread line soon. Well okay I am not certain. But I am a boy scout: Be prepared. At my insistence, we have started a course of extreme budgeting. I’m even clipping coupons y’all. Like the olden days. We have evaluated and eliminated things to be deemed non-essential. Cutting back to bare bones minimum. Next step dumpster diving. I jest. Or do I? Kind of, sort of, not really!
We are still blessed and privileged. Fat and happy! Which gives me no clue into why my OCD is pinging.
Okay, I have a clue. I know it is FEAR! B has never not worked. NEVER! He carried us for 15 years as I was a pseudo stay at home mom working solely to pay for health insurance. The uncertainty of his job prospect is unnerving. Yet I am strangely and seriously excited! The challenge is fan-freaking-tastic!
Here is one example of what cuckoo J-Dub does now. I get free Bath and Body no purchase necessary body wash via monthly coupon. I will never ever pay for body wash again! Lol.
Until I quit getting the coupons that is. I am certain they mail them to me because until recently I spent waaaayyy too much money there. All under the guise of you saved $240. Uh ya, not saving anything when the original bill would have been $600. Means I spent $360 “stocking” up. And you know what? I can never find a new scent bulb when I need one. They are hidden all over this house. We will have scent bulbs for the ages. But I am not getting any more despite seeing that I saved $240 gives me a such rush!!! Exhilarating!!!
Hi my name is J-Dub and I “had” a problem.
