You've Earned It, Don't Lose It - book review

February 6th, 2011 at 01:06 pm

This book was written by Suze Orman and I got it several years ago before I retired. I just reread it and I really liked it. It has a lot of good advice for people who either are retired or will be shortly. I need to give it to my mom and dad to read, since there was a really good chapter on creating trusts.

Yesterday, mom, sister and I drove up to visit my niece and help her do her taxes. I ended up walking her thru them and sending them online. I also fixed her computer so it could print coupons. I send her good deals, but she wasn't able to print the coupons to get them. I took her 3 bags of groceries and some coupons that I thought she could use.

We went to Red Robin for lunch and I spent just under $10. We were only there for 3 hours since she needed to work.

It took 2 hours to drive up, but 3 to drive home. It started snowing pretty heavy about halfway back and the freeway was crawling. We finally got to a point we could turn off and take the back roads. We got around 6 inches, which is the most we've had so far this year. My back yard has 4 foot drifts. A good day to stay home.

I was reading MyMoneyBlog and he posted about a good deal at Lowe's if you need stuff from there.

Lowe’s has an upcoming promotion called their Tax Refund Card. Starting 2/8, if you buy a card with value of $500 to $4,000 – supposedly with your tax refund but they can’t tell and don’t care – then on 3/18 you’ll get an additional 10% of the initial purchase price on the card. Ends 3/14. Not bad if you’re already planning on shopping there. I’ll probably wait until March to see if I really need it, just hope they don’t pull the promotion.

Here is the link for the Tax Refund Card

    Great post. I don't need anything from Lowes, but I'll bet if they're doing it, others will follow suit. I'll keep my eyes open...

    I'll keep that in mind, we will have to do some things around here in the next year. It might be a way to set aside some cash for those repairs. We also get 10% for military...so even better!
