I need a new budget
I found out my little side job is coming to an end this month. It paid $80/month for about 15-20 minutes of yard work once a week. The family is moving to Florida and that is a bit of a commute from North Texas. That means I'm losing a big chunk of my card budget. The biggest chunk actually.
I'll try to put the word out and get another "customer" or two so I can keep my card buying habit going. Otherwise, I might miss out on trades like this one with Robert over at $30 a Week Habit. I was able to turn a Bowman Blue Jay auto I pulled from a pack into these gems.
Another Joe Mauer for the collection my son has now taken over. He was very happy.
I was happy to add this Gypsy Queen Nelson Cruz to my collection. Ok, who am I kidding, they'll all be my son's eventually, but for the time being, it's mine! All mine!! **Maniacal laugh**
Robert, thanks for the cards (yours will be on the way this week) and thanks for showing me you CAN collect on a budget.
