    The first seven are all worthy occupations in comparison to number eight.......I could never stoop that low to rob and deceive all I was meant to work for.......:(

    I am retired, and my only source of income is the social security scam. I took care of my mother during her last years. Yes, I lived in my mother's basement. After she died, the family tried to give me the house but I turned it down because I didn't want to be a property owner in California. So my brother took it and now I live in the little house on the back of the lot and my brother lives in my front yard. My only hobby is buying food at bargain prices. Here is my pantry:



    You can't see the coffee. It is stacked to the ceiling. At $3.75 per can.

    BTW this is my electric trash can. A recycled computer fan sucks the bag into place and smooths it. Pretty lame, huh? But that's what you get from a bored engineer with lots of time on his hands.

    You can't have too much coffee.  It'll be good for years.  I guess you might want to buy a freezer if you are still shopping.  :) This post was edited by Thriftymaid at January 13, 2018 1:12 PM MST

    There are so many bargains that I caught myself thinking "Let's see, what can I eat to make room for this in the freezer?" That's when I stopped going to that store regularly. Here is an example of what I find at Big Lots:



    Twenty cans of mandarin oranges for two bux, just because it was outdated.

    #1.

    Ain't #8 the truth!


    Personally, I can't find  job.  What few jobs there are around here are "kid jobs" (and they only want to hire kids for them) or medical jobs (doctors with minimum of 5 years exp.).

    Hey, Trump ... where are all these jobs you promised???

    Did you get the shot?

    NO.  I don't ever get THE SHOT and I have not been ill or down with the flu in over a decade.  What I did not do is take my medicine that I take to stave off the flu.

    I let it go too long and it got me finally and I had a hell of a time shaking it. 

    I do not believe in flu shots for me.  The last few times years ago when I got one, I got sick.  Who needs the freaking flu to get rid of the flu?  Not me.
