I finally had my last eye doctor appointment

I know the doctor is thorough but I was getting tired of seeing her. I think I saw her for almost 4 weeks straight. Not counting the week that it snowed and I canceled my appointment. Now I just have to wait for my new contacts to come in.

Then I won't have to see her anymore. No pun intended.

It doesn't pay to be cheap

Especially when your health is at risk. I have a friend who is a diabetic and she plays with her illness all of the time. She won't keep enough medicine to last between appointments and she's always running out of syringes for her insulin. I told her to shop online where she can get all of her diabetic supplies from one place. That way she can buy everything at one time and she will always have enough.

That's better than the alternative. Which is going into a diabetic shock or even worse a diabetic coma. I don't know about you, but that's enough to make me go on the straight and narrow.

My benes end in 10 days

My benefits don't run Jan-Dec for some odd reason. They end on the last day of the month of January. When I go to the doctor and have her order my new contact lenses I have to be sure to tell her to order them on the 2008 benes.

That way I can order another set at the end of the year. That's a money saving move for me. Can't beat that.

Saving money on fun stuff

Right now the economy is in the tank. People need to save money any way they can. Why not go and get a spyder paintball gun and go have fun with your friends. There are even places where you can rent them really cheap.

It's something that a whole group can get involved in as well. It's a great stress reliever to boot.

I own more stock than I thought I did

I knew how much I owned of 2 companies. I'm trying to increase my position in the 3rd company and I sent money to my stock account at least every other month. I thought I only had 55 shares of the company in the account. When I got my year end statement I had 59 shares. It's not a lot more but hey every additional share brings me closer to my goal of at least 1 round lot of each stock.

I take good news wherever I can get it.

I'm looking to save money on a necklace

I really want this initial necklace that I saw. It's perfect to wear with almost any shirt or blouse that I have. The problem with buying it? It's from a expensive store and it's way overpriced. I don't want to spend unnecessary money on the necklace no matter how much I want it. I did find a place where I can get Discount Jewelry. I don't mean cheap jewelry either. It's a site that sells great jewelry at reasonable prices. I don't think it's too much to ask to want to save money on purchases.

Whether I want to get a complete wardrobe of jewelry or a special piece I can look to Holsted Jewelers to find the perfect piece. I can't wait to look around and find the necklace that I really want at a great price.
