I hope I win some good prizes

I've started to do online sweepstakes again. It's usually easier to win in the summer because most people aren't home to play. There are so many other things to do that no-one wants to sit at home in front of a computer. Anyway there are a few that I really want to win. Almost all of the prizes are gift certificates.

I'm not entering mail-in sweepstakes as much. Postage is a big factor and when you don't win that makes it even worse. I do have to admit that it is fun to play the games though.

I understand the need to hoard coins

It's pretty brutal out there right now. Yeah the economy is slowly starting to turn around and come back but I'm not totally sure the worse is over. Now is a good time to get precious metals in your portfolio. Not just bullion but things like bars and certified coins. These are things that you could keep yourself or have a storage company hold them for you.

Right now I'm looking into acquiring both domestic and international gold coins. A company like Monaco is definitely worth checking out. One of their specialties is in the rare coin markets. I'm not looking for rarity personally. I'm looking at American Eagles and Canadian Maple Leafs to start off.

I had better get them soon because the price of gold keeps soaring.

I need to cut back on gas

I can't believe how much money I've spent on gas lately. Most of the trips are just to the grocery store. But several times I've gone to the store, come home and gone right back to the store because I forgot something. Each and every time it was something small or something that could have waited until the next trip. I'm wasting time and gas.

The worse part is that I'm wasting money and that definitely has to stop.
