    So we went to go pick up the home gym stuff I was telling you all about yesterday but..... The dude gave us so much free shit. Good dude on offer up was moving after getting divorced and was selling his home gym. We move into our new house that'll have a home gym space in a month but this deal was way too good to pass up. Dude also really liked rogue. He ended up just giving us a lot of stuff since he was on a time crunch. We only spent $1200.

    • Rogue RML 490C rack

    • Rogue Matador

    • Rogue safety straps

    • Rogue squat handles

    • Rogue Landmine

    • Rogue band set

    • generic barbell

    • Rogue stabilizer bar

    • Rogue monster lite plate storage

    • Rogue echo lifting belt

    • 4 Rogue j-cups

    • V-2 gunrack

    • York plate tree

    • dumbbell pairs with rack 10-40lbs

    • 4 matching Oso clips

    • 2 plastic clips and 4 metal clips

    • 5 horse stall mats

    • 2 pairs of lifting straps

    • additional wrist wrap

    • a TV with Roku

    • pair of rogue knee wraps

    • a harbinger lifting belt

    • an Olympic curl bar

    • 4 band pegs

    • adjustable bench with curl/extension attachment

    I'm fucking floored. I can't wait to move to our new house and set up our home gym. We still gotta pick up plates and a corner cable system and build a platform but that stuff with wait until the move. Been dreaming of this for years. All aboard the gains train!!!!

    [–] A sweet family knocked on our door and gave these to us. Story in comments. bitchinawesomeblonde 8 points ago * (lasted edited a day ago) in MadeMeSmile

    So two of my husband's best friends are police officers (one gang unit in downtown Phoenix and an Arizona state trooper) and we have a thin blue line sign in our front yard.

    Today we received a knock at the door. A mom and her two kids had an envelope for us. They asked us if we were police and we said no we aren't but our two friends are. The mom sent her kid back to the car and pulled out another card! They have cards thanking police for their service in their car and whenever they see police they give them a cute card. We are going to deliver our friends their cards. It made my heart smile.

    Yup! Exactly. We traded in our Silverado we bought new for $45k 😱 and they gave us $18k for it 4 years later. Fucking insane. We traded it for a 4 year old Audi with 45k miles on it and only paid a difference of $4k. That same Audi goes for $55k new. Never buying a new car again.

    [–] My neighbors got a new puppy (dang that fence) bitchinawesomeblonde 1 points ago in PetTheDamnDog

    Which makes me even more sad because you know damn well that if a vet didn't do it they probably didn't use sedation or pain meds. Probably cut off their ears when they were a week old puppy. Disgusting.

    [–] [Encouragement] It sucks but paying down debt is a good way to avoid spending money on stupid stuff. bitchinawesomeblonde 1 points ago * (lasted edited a day ago) in personalfinance

    We paid off all of our debt this last summer. No credit cards, no car payment, no student loans... NOTHING. I can't tell you how nice it's been to be able to really save up for a house. Well we finally have the money and we bought our dream house and still have money for emergencies and fun stuff. To be able to go and buy what you want with cash on large purchases is the best feeling ever. We we're able to get our foreverhome, a fully equipped home gym and a new bedroom set and we are gonna buy a pool table because we can. It's not going to be stressful for us because we worked so hard for so long and now to be able to reward ourselves with the things we WANT and cool toys without taking on debt made it worth it.

    Keep in mind though that we still got all of our home gym used (still high quality though) and are waiting until memorial day to buy our new furniture. My personal rule is to never pay full price for anything. It helps keep down the impulse buys. I also really like thrift shopping so I try and get most of the things we have thrifted or I make them myself. We buy quality items so we don't have to buy twice. It's about changing your spending habits and finding ways to save. We know we will save much more money buying a home gym because it is something we actually use very frequently and pays for itself in a year vs a gym membership as an example. The bigger bed and updated furniture is something we have said we will treat ourselves to when we bought a new house but that is still something we use everyday.

    We have friends over always, so instead of spending money on a formal dining room/sitting room no one uses we are putting in a pool table that will actually get use. We justify large purchases and only buy if it's something used often or needed or will save money in the long run. We are cloth diapering our new baby because it will save us thousands on diapers. All of those little expenses add up every month and the money we saved goes right back into our savings account.

    When my husband got a promotion and a raise, we automatically transfer the extra money from his new salary to savings every week and live off of what we were previously. Keep saving and pay off your debt!!!! Getting the snowball effect going in the right direction is something you should make a priority.

    Thank you! I couldn't believe it.

    Stick the baby in a bouncer and get shit done!!! CONGRATULATIONS! Life gains!

    [–] Daily Discussion Thread: 03/22/2019 bitchinawesomeblonde 13 points ago in bodybuilding

    I'm assuming they look like typical mom's. You know the type. The "well I had a baby and don't have time" type. No Karen, you don't make time and you eat like shit. Spending 4 hours on Facebook but you can't spend an hour at the gym....

    [–] Daily Discussion Thread: 03/22/2019 bitchinawesomeblonde 4 points ago in bodybuilding

    It was definitely top three on our wish list for buying a house. The new house has a separate third car garage that's drywalled and insulated and absolutely perfect for a gym. I can't wait! It's gonna be so nice to have our own gym and not have to go anywhere especially with having a baby in July.

    • Rogue RML 490c rack in blue $700 😍😍

    • Olympic barbell $30

    • Rogue Landmine attachment $55

    • Rogue Matador dip attachment $55

    • Rogue safety straps $125

    • Curl bar $20

    • Weight tree $20

    • Adjustable bench with curl/extension attachment $30

    • Dumbbells with rack (10,15,20,25,30,35,40,45) $190

    • 2 clips free

    • Gun rack for barbell storage $25

    • a shitload of Bands $15

    Talk about the mother load! Next up is buying some plates and building a platform.

    We are having a baby in July and BUYING a home gym because it'll be cheaper than a gym membership and daycare. Don't sell your stuff man! There's gotta be another way!

    [–] /r/Homegym - Weekly Free-talk Friday - March 15, 2019 bitchinawesomeblonde 1 points ago in homegym

    Hell yeah! I scored on offer up today! Super nice guy is getting a divorce and was selling his home gym. For just under $1100 I ended up getting:

    • a blue rogue RML 490c rack

    • rogue safety arms

    • rogue landmine attachment (if the other dude falls through)

    • an adjustable bench with curl/hamstring attachment

    • dumbbell set with a rack

    • weight tree

    • a barbell

    • a curl bar

    • 2 clips

    This guy is my fucking hero. We still have to pick up the rack this weekend when we get a truck but I'm doing my damn happy dance.

    [–] Got this from Influenster today and some how had no idea it was coming! bitchinawesomeblonde 2 points ago in BeautyBoxes

    If you go into Ulta there's a self-tanning area. Get a bottle of the story tropez self-tanning mousse in dark and there should be a variety of mitts don't get a foam one get an actual cloth mitt. Mine was pink I don't know the brand though.

    [–] Got this from Influenster today and some how had no idea it was coming! bitchinawesomeblonde 6 points ago in BeautyBoxes

    St. Tropez self tanning is worth EVERY penny. A bottle last me a while and the tan is always perfect. Not orange or streaky and last a whole week. You also don't get the dark marks around your underarms like you do with a salon spray tan. Their mit sucks ass though so buy a better one.
