Pure vanilla/laptop/ and a little more

May 25th, 2019 at 07:07 am

I grabbed a bottle of pure vanilla at Costco without looking at the price. I paid for the things I bought and left. Three days later, while cleaning my purse, I came across the Costco receipt and I noticed something. I paid $29.99. for the vanilla; that's right, $30! It's funny, it's the same product I always buy at Costco. I am not sure if $30 is the price I've been paying all along but never noticed. It could also be that I am scrutinizing all receipts lately. My husband will be returning it today. I love the taste of the real deal, but not for $30.

I have my 50th birthday coming up at the end of the summer. Originally, my boys were talking about a big 50th birthday bash, but I do not like any attention on me. I thanked them and turned it down. I then proposed that they buy me the laptop and take me to my favorite coal oven baked pizza and meatball restaurant with my best friend. They agreed! Honestly, it is way more economical to do this than to throw a party. The reserves in my laptop fund will not go to other things I need. Win, win situation for all.

I opened an account with Vanguard on Friday and I will be rolling over my 403B to a traditional IRA July 1st.

Well, that's it! To all my fellow Americans, have a great Memorial Day.

    Good plan on your birthday.

    Vanilla is expensive and I think the price has gone up lately too.

    Happy birthday! The good vanilla is expensive. I recently saw a single vanilla bean in a small jar at the local Kroger for $7.99!!!!!!
